He claims he’s just been to Taiwan and Japan but Quickrelease.tv can reveal that Tim ‘Masiguy‘ Jackson has, in fact, been Rasmussing around in the Netherlands with Bio-racer, a custom latex clothing specialist.
The proof, as they say, is in the pudding, and here’s the pudding:

The photoshoot for a rubberised clothing ad includes the first known photograph of Jackson not on a Masi bike, although, if you look closely, Jackson can be seen mouthing the words ‘Masi…must ride Masi’ through gritted teeth.
The god-like figure on the chariot is, of course, David Bernstein of The Fredcast. Why’s he so mad? One of Jackson’s fellow riders has ridden off with Bernstein’s latest item in for review, a Garmin 705 GPS unit.
Both Bernstein and Jackson are members of The Spokesmen podcast and it’s believed they were enticed to the Netherlands with the offer of “ja, boys, you can take home as much kinky cycling clothing as you like.”
The deal was nearly scuppered when Jackson refused to wear the Bio-racer branded socks supplied by the Dutch clothing company. However, Bernstein saved the day when he said he’d wear two pairs for the shoot, leaving Jackson free to wear a pair of SockGuy ‘I’m a bike fetishist’ socks underneath the slinky black booties seen in the photo, biggerised here.
Jackson, 65, has 12,318 pairs of SockGuy socks.
