Or would that be Lance SockStrong...
 
Seven time Tour de France winner, cancer survivor, and all round good guy.






This classic American red heel monkey is wearing all new clothing designed specifically for him, including the USA patchwork cap and the black with red dots Sidi bike shoes (like Lance wears).




He's always extra careful to keep his tail away from the spokes and bike chain.




And wears his protective bike gloves to keep from getting blisters, or wearing out his knit.




I've been a lurker here for awhile even though some of my friends are here (howdy!) but this challenge inspired me to finally join and post.

Because life is just a little brighter with a sock monkey.

Hilarious! I think the photoshop action shots are my favorite part of this competition! I never even liked sock monkeys until now!!

That's marvelous! Please tell me that that's an actual mail sticker on his shirt.

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

Thank you.

That is a real priority mail sticker on his shirt, since the USPS was one of Lance's sponsors. The action shot with the same background as Lance is the only Photoshop magic. The other photos are exactly as he posed. Suprisingly, nobody on my block found it strange to see a sock monkey riding a bike down the sidewalk with no hands on the bars.

I love it!  Where'd you get the little monkey-sized bike?  Your little monkey looks like he is really a cyclist finishing his race.  Good job with posing and getting him balanced for the pics!
