This Actually Makes a Lot of Sense

I knew that Cycling required a bit of vanity (how do you think that Mario Cipollini rode around in a zebra-print outfit during the 2003 tour?), but this is either taking it a step too far or just keeping it real. I'm not sure. I'll leave you with the comment, and you can make your own decision. From the Guardian:

No, we shave our legs because we think it looks good. Not even good, actually; just right. For a serious cyclist to ride with hairy legs is a grotesque solecism. It shows a shocking lack of savoir-faire and form.
Could you imagine the snickering that would occur if someone didn't shave their legs before one of the grand tours or the important one-day races? Oh, hilarious. I love it.
