"A Handlebar Moustache is indeed a glorious facial hair feature. Whether it stands alone or crowns some other form of facial hair, the glory comes from it being a 'Handlebar' and not simply an ordinary moustache." - Schnauzer

Here's the idea. Post a photo of an athlete from your favorite sport (you may enjoy as a spectator or as a participant) with a hirsute appendage of the upper lip with graspable extremities.

For example, should you like Cricket
Image

or baseball
Image

or even golf
Image
I know, you were expecting Rollie Fingers (who I think is great) but I decided to go "King" Kelly for the baseball one.
The others were Lord (Martin) Hawke - Cricket and Willie Park Jr. - Golf

So let's see some sporty handlebars!

Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865, Paris – 16 August 1940)

French bicycle racer and sports journalist. He set 12 world track cycling records, including the hour record of 35.325 kilometres on 11 May 1893. He was the first organiser of the Tour de France.

and for a more bumpy ride
Image
Cody Demoss is a professional rodeo cowboy. This is a very poor picture of the man. He has about the only HB in the upper brackets of pro rodeo, yet as far as a moustache goes, it leaves a lot to be desired. He should have participated in No Trim 2013. It IS still a HB moustache, though.

I knew there had to be some handlebar'd athletes in the multi-disciplined world of horse racing. Here is Pierre Lorillard IV, with his dog. Mr. Lorillard owned Saxon, the winner of the 1874 Belmont Stakes. That might be stretching the term "athlete", after all, the horse owner/trainer isn't out there running or riding the horse, but how could I pass up such an awesome stache?

Another cricketer, this time an Englishman, looking very suave back in the days...Graham Gooch.

Schnauzer - I think this one is my favorite of the offering. The moustaches from the 1970s/1980s, paired with the Disco-era hair dos - Wow. :shock:

Trent, I agree, this is the english style showing that it doesn't have to be outrageously long to look really great!!

Although I can't seem to post a picture.
Friedrich Wilhelm Müller, better known as Eugen Sandow, the Victorian Strong Man and Father of Modern Day Bodybuilding.
Great HB and a famous bodybuilder, eventhough he was only 5"7 1/2 inchs, 172cm tall.

Here you go Edmondo. Note, I chose a photo where his "business" isn't visible.
