I don't see that there is anything unusual about riding stone lions bareback - it is a completely normal thing to do ... and Sammy isn't the only lion-rider. It was the first thing I thought of doing when I saw this one in Barcelona! Hehehe.
This blog will be primarily about the Hot Cyclists, Frank and Andy Schleck and Fabian Cancellara, and anyone else in the future deemed to qualify as a Hot Cyclist. If there is anything else interesting to write about, it will be about that too.
