The winner will be randomly selected.
The winner will be announced in a couple days.
Must be in the continental US (for mailing purposes)
Ben Upchurch because he always looks sooo pro and doesn’t take drugs.
My brother, because even though I am slow I can compensate by talking about my pro little brother.
Marcel Kittel- He weighs 190lbs and still wins lots of races.
My 6-year-old daughter for having the courage to ride the single track at Lake Fayetteville even after I tried to talk her out of it.
Peter Van Petegem, Belgian hard man and Museeuw underdog.
T. Wood, cause in another time on another day with a little push, he could have been a contender…
Dario Pieri, the fastest chubby guy of all time:
Danny MacAskill because he breaks the law of gravity when on a bike.
Laurent Jalabert – one of a few who won one day classics, the polka dot jersey, the green jersey, the yellow and world champion. Bam!
Chris Horner because we are the same age and he still kicks ass.
We’ve had some goods so far. The picture of Dario Pieri is awesome. Thanks Curtis! Keep’em coming.
Magnus Backstad, for allowing so many riders to hide behind him, protected from the elements!
The guy pictured above because not only does he get it done in the Classics, there’s nothing funnier to read than Fabianese on Twitter.
Unless that’s not Cancellara. Looks like him but don’t remember him riding for Saxo.
Danny MacAskill because he posts epic videos.
Matthew, indeed that is Fabu! I’ll have to check him on twitter for sure.
Lucho Herrera. I like him because he was one of our best Colombian cyclist. Raised in a humble environment and without the European resources, Colombia cycling was one of the best in class.
My favorite cyclist is Dick Nelson of Fayetteville,Ar. Dick encouraged me to start riding on some easy efforts and patiently rode with me until I improved some. He’s the reason I kept riding. JM
Bob Roll! Old school and always has colorful comments on the major tours.
Lance Armstrong for making us all look bad.
Pro has to be Cancellara. Non-pro Dennis Moore. A great guy, and awesome to ride with for beginners.
Johnny Hoogerland b/c any dude that gets run into a barb-wire fence and still gets up and finishes the stage is a Bad Arse.
Evelyn Stevens, because most of us probably wish we could have quit our day jobs after discovering road cycling and rode for a living. She fortunately had the talent to so.
That’s a tough one. But I’d have to say King Kelly, if for no other reason than the awesome anecdote in Rule #11. But he was a badass in the Classics and the Grand Tours. The only drawback…not Belgian.
Nice! Thanks Marc A, our first female cyclist.
Jens Voight, Because strikes fear in the peleton every time he goes off the front.
Amy Dombroski, for living her short life to the fullest & always with a smile on her face (even when covered in mud). – Dori
Bob Cable. Not just for the fact he rides for the joy of it…he’s got a g-damn magnificent beard and is still faster than most up hill…
Anyone who was built like a fire hydrant, but could still mix it up with the climbers has to make this list. Yes. Vino….not the wine but the ‘kourov. Drugs aside of course. Also, Tom Boonen (specifically at 2002 Roubaix). Sorry George.
I think I goofed and somehow deleted my original post. But my choice hasn’t changed; King Kelly total BA, in the classics and the Grand Tours. And arguably greatest Irish athlete of all time.
Laurent was an animal!
Niki Gudex, she is pretty much a bad ass!
Pat Zimmerman! The 40 Something Superhero!
One of the Toughest Cyclist I know, and can tell an awesome Big Ring Tale!
Lance Armstrong because he is innocent.
Some pretty great names mentioned. From PRO’s to kiddos. A bunch of local inspiring types too. No one mentioned the female version of Eddy Merckx-Marianne Vos. Keep’em coming!
Mark Griesse because he let me borrow a bike one year ago and got me into the sport of cycling. I just wish I could keep up with him.
Marshall “Major” Taylor. Ruled the sport back when cycling was a popular spectator sport in the US
The Queen of Pain Rebecca Rusch, followed closely by Ned Overend! They are both kicking A$$ and taking names long after most people would of retired. I hope to be half as fast one day.
Greg Lemond- It doesn’t get easier, you just get faster.
Tom Boonen – gritty, tough and classy (except for the whole cocaine and girls thing a few years back)
Jens Voigt. I can’t find my favorite Jens story, but this is pretty good…
Hope to ride w/ you guys tomorrow. Hasta,
I’m with Jake.
