Lex Albrecht vs. Georges Laraque

It's ON! Are you in the Montréal area?  Come out to see a true battle go down this weekend. 

What's that saying about "picking on people your own size"?  Georges Laraque is probably 4 times bigger than me, is an adamant proponent of vegan-ism, and has an impressive 13 year NHL career that he finished off with the Montréal Canadiens in the bank.

He is also convinced that he can beat me in a cycling race in Montréal.... Game on. I'm up for the challenge.

  1. Surveille son jus protéiné dans ses bouteilles...

  2. He might show up with an electric bike!

    1. Electric bike won't be of any use, Georges will need a Harley to beat Lex up the "Houde".

  3. Il va se faire rincer solide. Je te donne 1 min d'avance sur lui en haut... Minimum

    1. Facile une minute, je dirais même 2-3!

  5. It's not even fair... He may be a pro athlete, in retirement that is, but he is also huge/heavy, and this is a hill climb.

  6. Is the race still on with the snow?
