In the closing kilometres of last night’s final stage at the Vuelta a Andalucia, Top Sport Vlaanderen rider Edward Theuns makes a ballsy solo attempt to steal the win. Clearly impressed with the power on display from the 24-year old Belgian, the irrepressible Eurosport commentator Carlton Kirby does what he does best (4:02 on the video):
“Look at those calves, he looks like he’s smuggling frozen chickens…”
Shame Kirby doesn’t work on free-to-air. He’d be an even bigger cult figure around the world.
One thought on “Classic Cycling Quotes #120: frozen chicken smuggler?”
Carlton is certainly my favourite commentator….would be great if SBS used him on the tdf rather than Phil & Paul.
