Satan and Santa

You know “El Diablo” of the Tour de France? He’s the guy dressed as the devil who jumps up and down with his pitchfork as the peleton goes zipping by, and seems to never tire of this charade year after year. Didi Senft is his name and he has also built the world’s largest bicycle AND guitar out of spare bike parts…for some reason.

Apparently, costumes and alter egos are his thing because he also dresses up as Santa this time of year, as evidenced by that photo of him riding his newest creation, a huge bicycle reindeer for an event in Germany. It’s an unfortunate placement of the, ahem…cockpit, coupled with that bright red santa suit. But if attention is what he wants, he’s sure going to get it. See you in July when you go from Santa to Satan.

    I guess that’s one way to make a deer’s nose red – or is he just waving?
