Bike Porn: Boulder champ Heather Irmiger strips down for 2011 Cyclepassion Calendar
There comes a humbling time in the career of every blogger when he must face the fact that, for example, the article he wrote in February about Clair Bidez, Hannah Teter, Lindsey Vonn and Lacy Schnoor taking their clothes off for Sports Illustrated got more pageviews than anything else he wrote about snowboarding or skiing all year. Welcome to the Internet, kid! In the interest of staying on top of stories about celebrity athletes with local connections getting naked, let's see what Boulder-based cross country mountain bike champion Heather Irmiger and a sorority of sexy cyclists including Hanka Kupfernagel (Germany), Willow Koerber (US), Julie Krasniak (France), Liz Hatch (US), Veronica Andréasson (Sweden), Mona Eiberweiser (Germany), and Fabienne Heinzmann (Switzerland) have been up to, shall we?

Irmiger (shown here getting freaky with teammate Willow Koerber) has had a hell of a run of it lately, with recent wins at the U.S. National Cross Country Championships, the U.S. National Marathon Championships, Pro XCT Short Track XC Overall Series, and the Single Speed World Championships (where she picked up that cheeky "champion" tattoo, btw).

And, it turns out, all that pedaling does a body good, as evidenced by the 2011 installment of the annual Cyclepassion calendar by photographer Daniel Geiger. Click through to peep the bike short tan on Miss May (aka Veronica Andréasson) and to order your copy, you bike perv.
Sorry, ladies and gents... Irmiger's already spoken for: She and nine-time national champion Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski are living happily ever after up there in Boulder. You'll just have to content yourself with these video sneak peeks from the calendar shoot:
