You've been registered since Feb 2010 though, any confessions to make who you really are?

In all seriousness and without the silliness, he looks like a great guy .

Here's the scene where he gave Valverde his bike and exited the race:



Falling on the wet climb after the push:

So isso is actually a proto-hater!

To be completely honest, I only became a fan of Madrazo in summer 2010 (around Pologne and Montreal), and he only became one of my favourite riders around Tirreno 2011. That's because before June 2010 I hadn't been following cycling as closely as I used to for a couple of years, so I didn't know much about him - just that he was this young, talented fellow that Caisse was developing veeeery slowly.

So I'm afraid I can't be an officer of the Madrazo Mafia, but I can be an NCO

I remembered isso talking about him when I joined, so searched forums for Madrazo references from over a year ago, and found a bunch of isso posts from before I signed up.

@El_Chingon thanks aswell, cyclists and running on a 10%+ ramp do not go together well.

Does anyone know how old he is? I vaguely remember him coming on to the pro scene as a neo pro for Saunier Duval(?). I've noticed him doing some great work for his team leaders a few times. Seems like a really good team player and domestique.

Thankx for posting those pix ElC!

I caught that partially this morning but didn't see the whole debacle on the feed...

I remember thinking Madrazo was kind of a cult geek when they chose him for the TdU hype hero a few years ago
