I'm a cycling fan from France. I've been lurking around the forum for a while, I think it's time for me to join and strengthen the TiboPino admirers company.
See you around ;)

i think that evert new member should come here and introduce themselves , i didn't do that and it was a
mistake .
I'M a med student that watch cycling till giro d'italia 2003 , so i'm 23 and i watch cycling since 9 years old .
I remember exactly GIBO simoni winning giro d'italia and of course i was asking myself why he didn't go to tour de france , the answer was not in my mind at 9 years old.
This tell to ALL the members that i love climbers , or to be more accurate i love CLIMBS , when the peloton approach a climb my blood pressure goes high , i turn red and a bit of headache start to appear , this of course BEFORE team sky but that is a clinic aspect.
Of course than i start to see some old cycling and i was wordless when i see the Pantani stage at the 1998 tour de france , Ulrich lose 9 minutes and now i see cronoman lose very few little time in the climbs but that is a clinic aspect.
So i love climbs , and i will say that cycling without climbs lose 3/4 of his history , that's for sure .
I LOVE to talk of all the thing that i like , and of course cycling is one , i post a little bit too much but that only in grand tours and i was a little bit sad when other members or moderators think i'm a troll and want me to go ,
I think that if you speak with me FACE TO FACE you will not think that i 'm a troll , in a forum is very difficult to make think the Others members of your irony so i will try to improve , but i 'm not a smartass person or an arrogant one who post craps .I just love cycling

Welcome to the Forum!

If we wanted you to go, we would have permabanned you. All anyone has asked of you is to follow forum rules, which are posted at the top of every thread and comment, and to use proper comment posting etiquette. With that said, I'm glad you're back and hope you become a forum regular and of course have fun!

Cheers :)

Welcome to the forum!
Since you love climbers you must love Froome too. We'll have fun. :D :D

I just wanted to say hello to all. While I have frequented Roadbike Review's forums for a number of years, I am new to these forums. RBR seems to be pretty quiet these days, so I am looking forward to a different experience and getting to chat (particularly about pro cycling) with new people.

Hello everyone,

I'm a 24 year old student from the Netherlands. I have been watching cycling on television since the late nineties.
My father was interested in it and I started to watch with him. The fact that both my parents worked for the Dutch bank that used to sponsor a team helped with that interest. I discovered the forum a few months ago. I have now decided to join in as I think it will be fun with all the different people here

Greetings,

Ursus

Hello to you all!

I'm a 28 year old American living in Seattle and have been a big time JV - team Slipstream fan since I watched since the wasp sting in 2001. You can look forward to me defending him against the usual bad mouthing. Call me naive, but I do NOT believe that every rider is doped, though I would still be watching even if they all were.

This is my first venture in a cycling forum, long time lurker first time poster.

New member comments are moderated before they're posted to the general forum. This is a SPAM countermeasure that we had to implement to keep SPAM from overrunning the forum.

After a certain amount of posts, your comments will not need to be verified.

You can upload an avatar for free, we don't charge money but the avatar you upload has a maximum size of 150x150 pixels. You can use MS Paint to resize whatever avatar you're trying to upload.

I have to check for sure but I think you have to have a minimum of 10 comments before you can upload an avatar.

Thank you Irondan. I can't wait to get my avatar. Is there a rule about what areas we can post in as new users? I have lurked here so long and some topics off limits without membership time?

No, there's no rule about where you can post as a new member.

The only reason that your comments weren't moderated in this thread is because it's excluded from the new member moderation process for people to post if they have issues when starting out.
