A Comprehensive Look at How Iron Maiden and Professional Road Cyclists are Alike

The other day, as I was pulling on my totally rad Maiden jersey, I was thinking how much Iron Maiden and road cyclists have in common.

They both have a need to wear tight fitting clothing that shows off their junk.


They both often put the "hammer down".


They both take part in their share of press conferences
(though I don't think anyone is questioning Iron Maiden for their
use of 'enhancement drugs' unlike Floyd)


Iron Maiden have bobble heads made in their tribute . . . .
. . . . road cyclist have big heads.


They sometimes sport wicked big hair.


Have links to the devil.


Have to stay in line and work as a team.


They both have a need for hydrating properly.


Both have a large, rowdy fan base.


Nutty groupies follow them around.



Their names are on their equipment.


Both have movies made about them.



Books have been written to tell you how to play/ride like them.


There are even video games!


And posters too.


At the end of a show/race, they both salute the crowd.


So there you have it . . . . if you're a road cyclist or even a fan of road cycling, you may as well be card carrying member of the Iron Maiden fan club . . . . you are more alike than different.
