For those about to rock we salute you!

How cool is it that at least two pro cyclists are proudly sporting the mullet these days?

Take these two for example:

Viatcheslav Ekimov's Neck Drape
Laurent Brochard's Mullet (don't pronounce the 't' to get a French effect - like 'moo-lay')

Why is this phenomenon occurring? Does winter cycling make the neck cold? And furthermore, what would a cycling-specific mullet be called? Is there some aerodynamic advantage I'm not aware of when the hair in the back is longer than the hair in the front?
