Default Pro Cyclists on Twitter

Apologies if there are previous threads on this but does anyone have a list of pro-cyclists who are on twitter.

I saw on one of the news stories that the Schlecks were tweeting about Andy's crash and Lance Armstrong seems to spend more time on it than on his bike!

I think during Le Tour it could be interesting to follow all the riders to see how they're feeling.

Twitter is awesome.

In the old days, to have fun with athletes, you had to stick a microphone in their face. Preferably away from their managers and handlers.

Twitter makes this microphone permanent.

Default Twitter Sux!!

Twitter Sucks.

It is killing real communication and language with indirect human contact, incomplete sentences, non-sense, and rambling.

Lance's announcement by twitter is totally lame.

Nonsense. Through Twitter there's a sort of contact there wouldn't normally be. It doesn't replace anything, it's an added means of communication. Regardless of what Tweetstrong uses it for.

You could make the same claim about the internet in general, of course:-)
