Specialized & Cyclingnews "Whose Shoes?" Contest
During the 2004 Tour de France, Specialized and Cyclingnews offered
an opportunity to win some great new gear. Up for grabs were four pairs

to a bike, of course) and then guess the identity of the rider who was

to freeze. But thats what they make knee and arm warmers for, right?"
The correct answer for competition #2 is D) Filip Meirhaeghe.
