Fidea, or Figaya?

Oh dear. I think all possibilities of me feeling good about this picture in any way possible are just not going to happen. This is from the Ridley article VN just published. What is it about the Euros? I read Cycle Sport and Procycling and the ads and some behind the scenes photos are so unbelievably cheezy, I can not take it. Scenes of dudes shaving their legs in the bath or Filipo Pozatto in (I shit you not) flanal pajamas with little sheep on them.

Seeing my 'cross heros in a photo that would normally be seen in any communal bath in NYC's meat packing district, I just want to shed a tear.

Is this PRO? God help us.
