Well, I learned about another competition at the Tour de Beauce: the first annual Felt-Holowesko Partners-Garmin mustache growing.
As per the official rules, any rider, staff, or sponsor welcome to compete in the First Annual F-H-G Mustache Competition. There will be only two categories – Men and Women. The competition will end on June 14, 2009 and correspond with the final stage of the 2009 Tour de Beauce.
As per the team’s facebook entry: Daimeon Shanks (beloved inventor of the exclamation point and mechanic for Felt-Holowesko Partners-Garmin) will be judging the official competition.
Mustaches will be judged on a variety of factors including (but not limited to): Volume, Moxy, Stick-to-it-tuiness, Longevity, Frenchness, Swagger, Firefighternes, Danceability
While I am not (so far) part of the judging committee, that won’t stop me and us right?
I’ll be getting close ups of the riders as the week goes on.
Update: Closeups of some of the riders taken before the Saturday stage in Beauce (click for larger images):

On Sunday night, Walker Savidge was crowned the winner by Daimeon Shanks. What do you think?
