Cycling Lookalikes

My most recent post apparently has struck a chord.  More specifically, it garnered a coveted (and I choose to believe prestigious) WTF!? du Jour award.

That’s all well and good, but it was a light bulb moment for me.  I’ve always been drawn to look alikes and in the spirit of Page 2 and Bikes vs. The World (we miss you Cosmo), I’m starting a new category: BikeAlike. 

Of course, BikeAlike was inspired by Ed Grimley and Fabian Cancellara – but Bjarne and Joe were the first appearance on this blog.  To honor this momentous contribution to posterity, I present the latest in this continuum:

Danny Pate and Michael J Fox

 Danny Pate  Michael J Fox

Danny Pate is one of my favorite riders.  An understated character, underrated climber and excellent time trialist.  It’s great to seem him flourish under Jonathan Vaughters’ wing.  He might not be a threat to win the Tour, but he is always a rider to be accounted for.  His performance on stage 15 of last year’s Tour was evidence of that.

As for Michael J Fox, who doesn’t know this guy?  Family Ties was popular, the Back to the Future movies were huge hits; he could do no wrong in the 80s.  Always a likable public persona, he is now better known for his work and advocacy toward finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

So who do you think has a look alike out there?  Post ’em in the comments.  If you can find a truly awesome pairing, there just might be an underwhelming prize headed your way.

    @Msefg: Thanks for letting the people know. As a cyclist, I am familiar with the Davis Phinney Foundation. However, I’m sure there are many other such as yourself fighting the good fight.
