One For The Home Team: Chris Hoy

.
Chris Hoy is a cyclist.  Not just a cyclist, but an amazing cyclist.  I suppose if you watch cycling, you have heard of him.  But I never have (either watched my cycling or heard of him).
.
In 2008 he won three gold medals (the first Briton to to this in 1908).  He won in Men's Keiren, Team Spring and Men's Individual Sprint.


.
He is a Scot that seems like a nice guy.  But I think his thighs are a little scary :-).
.
He is now Sir Chris Hoy, having been made a Knight Bachelor by the Queen.  He leads the British Cycle Team in London 2012. And the new Veledrome in Scotland (being built for the 2014 Commonwealth Games) is being named after him.
.
He will be popular with Lisa for the thighs and Eddie for the dimples.

So what if he had dimples in his thighs?....which I think just might be the case.

FYI - I do actually enjoy watching cycling since the good folks at NBC Universal got better at broadcasting it by immitating how the Eurpeans (ok...Spaniards and Italians) make the broadcast more exciting.
