|This is what cycling does to people|
|I couldn't find a photo of Boonen's arse so instead here's one of Boonen on his arse.|
I was recently reading an Inner Ring (which I should point out is a website related to cycling (ring as in chainring) and not arses (ring as in arse)) article on an injury that Tom Boonen is currently suffering from. Like any self-respecting sports star, the former world champion deems it necessary and appropriate to divulge every detail of any injury or problem to his hordes of adoring fans.
So, what did Tom have to say about his saddle sore? Well, someone arse-ked, and this is what he said;
“It does hurt quite a lot…Because of the friction of the pants with the saddle, I suffer from an injury to the scrotum. The extreme heat and excessive sweating caused a heavy irritation in that area. There is a hole. It is not the first time that I have suffered in this place, but never as bad as now… I got a ‘second skin’, and glued it at times to a kind of diaper. The perineum, the area between the scrotum and the anus, is simply the most delicate part of the body"And there you have it. Not only does he explain how he got it, he also details how he's sore-ting it out! So the next time you get a saddle sore, you'll know to head on down to the shops for a packet of Huggies.
Happy father's day dads. Good work and careful with those scrotums of yours...
