I am quite portly myself, and recently at my LBS I was havin' a harp about how I always get dropped on the climbs.
The staff member was nice enough to put it as "Well Mike, you are a 'Sprinter' after all"
What a dude, good on him. It's good to see pencil pushers getting behind local sport instead of wanting to shut it down. Still, his wardrobe people may want to consider a different approach. Maybe a suit and a team flag next time around?
