I actually laughed out loud at the Ben Hur photo.

Ask a Brazilian if the Senna picture is iconic.

What about bicycling? :pop:


Nope. And neither is the WWE.

I'm new to the board, and I've wondered why there isn't a bicycle enthusiast thread. Seeing a few of the pet peeves and other random comments in regards to biking, I think I can see why.

A couple more soccer ones... one for the US, one for recent World Cups. Not arguing they're the "most iconic," but just memorable moments.

It's a shame they never caught the sniper that hit that Italian guy.

It's not. That isn't even Senna's most iconic picture for us. Sorry.

The image of Senna that resonates the most with me, as a hardcore Senna fan, is from Interlagos in 1991.....

He looked like he was in the midst of a religious experience after that race. It was incredible.

I assume the photo from Imola would sadly be considered more iconic.
