I can't be the only one who saw this.

So I'm sitting on the couch with my wife watching Lange just blistering the run course, with all the shit he has stuffed in his kit. At some point I can't help but notice a bulge. I'm thinking, is this guy running with a boner?!?! lol

Then a few minutes later he reaches down there and the camera man zooms in on his crotch as he does. I start to make a comment to my wife, "and now they're going to show us Lange grabbing his penis" when BAM he pulls out a half of a banana. He proceeds to peel and eat it. We were dying laughing.

With an aid station every mile, why would you need to stick half of a banana in your tri suit?

Also, the coverage stated he has a special pocket on the inside of the suit for holding a water bottle.

It's all about the post count!!!

Haha I saw that. We were joking that it was a bratwurst/sausage. I honestly thought it was a sandwich and kept think about how gross that was.

I missed this but my fiance caught it. She also saw him put an empty crushed cup in there at some point near the end, she thought he was delusional at that point but I figure he was being careful about littering penalties and had the cup beyond the litter zone.

I saw the cup too, but my favorite had to be the full bottle of coke. He seemed to be having slippage problems too, and some of the 'adjustment' shots were a bit uncomfortable as a viewer. The number of sponges he jettisoned down the stretch was quite impressive.

I don't think it's coke. I think it's his run nutrition mix. Not sure exactly what it is though.

I recall seeing that bottle of coke being pulled out less than a mile from the end at which point everyone in the room screamed "What are you doing?! get that course record!"

Exact same reaction! I thought he was fishing for a gel pack and then he digs and digs and digs into his crotch and comes up with........ A BANANA? Is that really a banana? Seriously? No! Can't be......it is! He's eating a banana! (I think he stuck it inside his top and it was so heavy that it "wandered" on him) Lightest moment of the day.

I saw it. It was so funny, and gross. I wondered what he was going to pull out next.

It would drive me crazy to run (and it would be like a 100m sprint for me) with a water bottle bouncing up and down on my stomach. He looked pregnant. But it obviously works for him.

I was riding on the trainer while watching the race. I saw the same thing. I admit that while watching him run I was thinking that Lange is really packing some heat in those shorts of his. Then he adjusts, and adjusts, and then pulls out that banana. That made my day. I was in tears laughing. Between that moment and his emotional finishes, how can you not love this guy.

Don't drown. Don't crash. Don't walk.

Yeah, that was my favorite too. I was literally amazed at the number of sponges he pulled out of his kit, and then a coke bottle!! Like a magician pulling a rabbit out of his hat.

He probably learned his storage solutions from his coach, Faris Al Sutan. Pictures of Faris in action normally show a bike bottle shoved down the back of his Speedo!

I agree.

Can somebody who is better with this stuff animate him pulling all kinds of crap out and eating it.

Can we at least get him drinking a beer? Eating a pizza?
