Twisted Spoke

My twisted take on the world of pro bike racing.

Halloween party for the Peloton. UCI bash brings out wild rider costumes.

This is scary stuff.

The annual UCI Halloween costume party for all ProTour riders, hosted by none other that the always quotable president Patrick McQuaid.

Twisted Spoke was given a behind-the-scenes look as riders tried on their outfits for the invitation-only bash. Funny how all the costumes seemed to match the personalities.

This is Part One. Look for Part Two, tomorrow, my cycling ghouls.


Blood doper Vinokourov is Dracula.

Menchov bear

It's the Russian Bear, Denis Menchov.


Andy & Frank Schleck are Thing 1 & Thing 2


Alberto "Bert" Contador from Sesame Street


Tom "beer man" Boonen.


Show-off Mark Cavendish goes as a hotdog.


Valverde, di Luca, Schumacher, Astarloza, Ricco and Rebellin all picked the same prison costume.
