Talking Current Peloton Personalities

WARNING: Don't bother with this thread unless you're feeling a little frivolous

We all know which riders are the best climbers, tallest, wealthiest, oldest, fastest sprinters, etc. Personality traits are less quantifiable, so I'm putting these up for discussion - feel free to suggest alternatives and/or add others

Ballsiest = Robbie McEwen
Bravest = Kenny van Hummel (based only on TDF performance)
Craftiest = Lance Armstrong
Crankiest = any of a number of bike tossers
Creepiest = Michael Rasmussen
Fiercest = Jens Voigt
Funniest = Jens Voigt
Likeable-est = Jens Voigt
Loneliest = Cadel Evans
Scariest = Jens Voigt
Sexiest = Fabian Cancellara
Shyest = Denis Menchov
Toughest = Stuart O'Grady
Virile-est = Jens Voigt

Is that someone who throws their bike (ala David Millar), or the other type of tosser (ala David Millar)?
