The people over at Velominati (keepers of the cog) have a great series of “casually deliberate” photos. The above is a good example. Eddy relaxing before a race. The bike resting on the back of your wrist, cranks well-drilled, in the big-ring and accurately aligned. tick. tick. tick.
The whole term: “casually deliberate” can be best summarized as “the ability to remain tranquillo after you have inhaled a wasp”. To be cool under extreme pressure.
Here are some more casually deliberate:
Cross-eyed soigneur with bow-tie, steadying Rene Pottier, 1906 TdF winner. Shepherd hats, heroic mustaches, polo neck jersey. You can just tell they’re both doped to the gills.
