Welcome, I should probably start explaining my game. I am a cycling obsessive, i follow all kinds of races and riders but of course become biased for teams/riders. As much as my blog may sometimes seem to point otherwise, I do have a good knowledge of cycling and can hold my own in a debate, but I chose to approach the more humerous side of it, and have no qualms admitting I'm also a fangirl. I'm female, it's hard to not notice that these guys are often good looking muscular guys in tight clothing with pretty bikes. So be warned.
I have my favourite riders which as it stands (for better or worse) are Valverde, Pereiro, the Schlecks, LL Sanchez, Contador, Sammy Sanchez and most Spaniards, Bennati, Boonen, Taylor Phinney, Eisel, Lovkvist, Wiggins, Rogers, Hincapie, DZ, many of the Garmin boys, Cancellara, Lequatre, Fleeman, Millar, Kenny, JA Flecha, Basso, Capecchi, De la Fuente, etc etc. The favourites tend to crop up lots if you need a more in-depth list.
I welcome all, but apologise for my lack of languages. I only speak English and very poor German, but welcome everyone :]

I also have facebook/msn, just ask.
I have two words for you- Mount Ventoux! Oh yeah, you already know it's the penultimate stage in the Tour de France but we don't have to wait until then to see a Contador v Evans duel on it, because we're getting that today, right? Maybe not. Contador called himself a spectator for the stage, we all heard him say he wasn't coming here to win but I doubt many believed him. Even when he's not trying hard though he's always top 5 so it'll be interesting to see what happens. Anyway, a 154km...
