Contest Time: Stomach of Anger

The T-Shirt Giveaway is officially closed and the boys from Stomach of Anger have selected a winner.

Kendall (aka @velofreak) is the winner with his entry of “I Am The Motor“.  Good job, Kendall…..I’m looking forward to seeing that one on a T-shirt.

Thanks to everyone for submitting your ideas….I enjoyed reading them all.

“I’m really disappointed. My stomach is full of anger, and I want to take my revenge.  I will take my revenge in the coming days.”

- Andy Schleck

It was almost six months ago, but I’m sure you still remember the day that a dropped chain on Andy Schleck’s bike cost him the Tour de France.  Upon this happening, Alberto Contador chose to take advantage of the situation and put a nice time gap between himself and Schleck.

I won’t get into the controversy, but Schleck (and others) felt that Contador should have taken the high road and waited for the chain to be put back on.  So following this event, Andy was fuming and responded to the press with his “Stomach of Anger” comment.

Michael Babcock and Kacha Azema liked this quote so much that they decided to build a company based on it.  They started their company, Stomach of Anger with a T-shirt based on Schleck’s quote…and have slowly added other T-shirts with memorable cycling quotes to their line up.

When I came across these guys, I immediately loved the concept and what they had going on.  There are a lot of cycling t-shirts out there, but the ones from Stomach of Anger really capture the spirit and emotion of us cyclists.  I’ve got mine, and I want you to have one as well… here’s your chance.

    “They pave these roads to hide my paint, but the tifosi bandit strikes again” with a picture of some of the mountain roads all painted up. I know, the poem part doesn’t rhyme, but I couldn’t come up with anything that rhymes with paint that means again.

  • Bill King

    When I climb I always tell myself “the downhill is the payoff…the downhill is the payoff”
    Image could be a nice simple uphill line (or a squiggle representing a switchback climb) with a steep downhill drop at the end and a cyclist almost at the top with little sweat drops around his head and a grimace.

  • Eric Hutchins

  • Clive Chapman

    I have a couple, more motivational than cycling specific from my days in the military.

    “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only poor equipment!”

    “Pain is weakness leaving the body”

    I’m no designer but both quotes could be featured with a graphic of a cyclist working really hard in pouring rain or driving snow.

  • Rachel Jackson

    A photo of Fabian Cancellara, taken from the ground or at least below his knees so he looks enormous (not that his legs aren’t already frighteningly huge), and the quote could be: “Check the motor: me.”

    I can’t win my own contest, but here’s my pick for the next T-Shirt Quote:

    “This is my body, and I can do whatever I want to it. I can push it. Study it. Tweak it. Listen to it. Everybody wants to know what I’m on. What am I on? I’m on my bike busting my ass six hours a day. What are you on?” – Lance Armstrong
