    someone is joking about a race champion who has certain unusual features (rear mirrors for safety)on his motorcycle.
    "he's a cheeky man isn't he? this is what being a champ does for you[/B]"
    can someone please explain the expression in bold for me?

    i also don't understand why it should be cheeky to have unusual safety features:/
    i must be getting the word wrong. also, since it's audio, it may be another word (but it clearly sounds like cheeky to me).

    Smile Re: expression

    Hi Possopo,
    I am a lay person in sports, and cycling in particular, so I don't know why it is cheeky to use rear mirrors. I guess the highlighted part means champions become conceited and and think their offences will be turned a blind eye on( not sure abt the preposition).
