Tattoos of the Peloton #16- Rasmussen

Michael Rasmussen. Band on his right bicep, just under the jersey line. This was the best picture I could find. That's the hard part of these tattoo posts- finding the images.

Anyway, Rasmussen, like others is a transplant from MTB where he won the World Championship in 1999.

Palmares
2006
Winner Stage 16, Tour de France
Winner Mountains classification, Tour de France

2005
Winner Stage 9, Tour de France

Winner Mountains classification, Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré

Unfortunately, he maybe best known for his disastrous TT at the 2005 tour which caused him to plummet in the final GC standings.
