Cycling Fans

How does a guy run with horns like that?

We're not that far from some major cycling races this year. The big one, the Tour de France won't be until July, but there are big ones on both sides of the Atlantic in May. The Amgen Tour of California is a week-long race through the state that begins on May 10. NBC Sports will have some live coverage of it. In Europe, the Giro d'Italia is a three-week race that begins a day earlier on May 9.

Bicycle racing has some of the most passionate and downright crazy fans. During cycle races, I have seen people dressed up as the Devil (A regular at the Tour de France), sumo wrestlers, and my personal favorite, this guy with the horns mounted on a football helmet. Most of these fans wait for the racers to come by on a hilly stretch when they aren't going that fast, and then run along side them for a short distance. I really don't see how someone can run with horns that big.
