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.
