    Eddy Bos
    Spartacus
    Styby
    Nibbles
    Sagz

    I'm fairly sure you made some of them up

    Sagz?
    Styby?

    Sagz was scraping the barrel, but I knew Styby was a genuine one

    Lars stepped aside and made sure his pal Adam got a couple of wins last year and will now - yet again - leave people in awe. I'm thinking a Roubaix victory, a top-3 in MSR and 4 stage wins in the gt's.

    Lars also spent 2014 to sacrifice himself for his countryman Fuglsang during the great cobblestone stage in the Tour making a gap in the peloton to front.

    Way too much love for Tony.

    I mean, why??

    Results Rick!

    (who else is going to beat him in a TT now Wiggins has "retired" and Canc doesnt care)
    We're in danger of confusing passion with incompetence

    He's the most tester-y rider ever.

    Can win unless he's on his own.

    *yawn*

    Yeah, I know, but I need a "man" in my 9 that can TT. I didn t say I'd watch any of his races :P

    Stannard is with Sky for convenience but rides as he feels like. Proper rider.

    Nieve is home grown Euskaltel boy.

    Geraint is just quality and a decent bloke.
    Contador is the Greatest

    Even Sky are getting in on the action: "It looks like our man @eliaviviani has taken second place in the first race at #MallorcaChallenge2015."

    For a forum allegedly overrun by Sky fanboys, there is surprisingly little love for Froome.
    Or maybe not so surprising after all?
