Following my defeat at Winterfell I gave up on this useless fight for a bunch of old swords they call "Iron Throne" and decided to follow cycling instead.
May the Lord of Light guide me on this forum.

Welcome to the forum! Your introduction is unique, that's for sure. :D

Happy posting!

Defeat at winterfell? Bit presumptuous no?

Bloody GRRM has me on his list.

When the **** will winter come?

Doesn't matter to me anymore, I will move to sunny Braavos and watch all of Vincenzo Nibali's ( my man ) usurpers bending the knee in the following Grand Tours

Hello to everybody,
Rob here, writing from old cycling land of Italy.
I've been looking to forums for some time already, found out it's quite funny and yet there is some deep knowledge so I decided to enter the arena :-)
About me, I was born in Padua, Veneto, land of two wheels (Campagnolo, Wilier, Atala, Olympia, Castelli, i could go on and on) and currently living in Florence, Tuscany (another 2 wheels paradise)
I'm an amateur triathlete which canride his bike (seems a rare thing I know), owning a local brand Campy equipped Roadie and a Scott Plasma 3 Shimano equipped TT bike.
Hope i can have fun and learn a lot reading the forum.
Have good rides!
Ciao!

Hey! Been a lurker a couple a years, now a poster of some time. I ride my bike to the job. It's one of those old bikes that cranks a lot and in every descent I pray (not holy praying) that it won't be my last descent.
One time I was in Tenerife, it was in 2008, and bycycled there. One guy sprinted past me up a hill and shouted "VAMOS!". Perhaps it was a pro as I later found out Astana was there at the time. Yes, with the Armstong. Too bad I couldn't follow wheel and mete Ferrari up top.
That's my bycycle story.

Hi I'm new but have been a lurker for years. I couldn't keep my mouth closed any longer so I created an account. It feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders by finally posting.

Howdy Folks!!! Name is Stryder and been reading the forum for a few years but only ever posted in the comments section under news stories but thought it was about time to contribute than just lurk around. Anyway I'm a cyclist from Melbourne in Oz, 6 x Everester and spend most of my time riding up hills and watching obscure euro races

I hope this is the good introduction topic. I'm watching profesional cycling since Giro 2005. I'd automatically fall in love with Rujano&Parra tandem. Propably that's why i enjoy GTs and mountains much more than cobbles and classics. I'm more of a traceur and cycling fan rather than cyclist. I don't even have a bike and I'm not interested in having any. As a cycling fan I'm worried I'm still more of a casual. I wouldn't recognize between next cobbled belgian hope like i dunno Van Asbroeck and another Vandenbergh or whoever. There's too many of them, I want a belgian climber instead. Let there be some variety.

I'm peeking at this forum for about 2 years. I registered in only now because I'm at the ending phase of my bite on the Tour de France design and I've choosed this forum as it has a pretty developed design community so I will have fast and insightful opinions on what to fix in the future. I've tried to design a classic one day race too and I have one that I'm kinda happy so I'll post that when I'll figure it's description. Cheers.

Welcome aboard railxmig! You'll be happy with the amount of people that know a good route on this forum. The GT organizers should just hire them to design their routes. :D
