I find this thread really funny to read and I don't think anyone meant the first comments serious and I think as long as stupid comments aren't meant to annoy anyone but just to be funny there is no reason to delete them.

It won't get closed as long as the discussion revolves around Christophe Laporte as his "riders thread".

If mods think that the OP or anyone else wants to use this riders thread for purposes other than discussing the rider in question then it may get shut down, or the member that takes the thread in that direction could be sanctioned or both. My point is that this thread should be treated the same way that any other riders threads are treated, despite the ridiculous OP.

"Another" World Tour rider in the picture would suggest that Laporte is a World Tour rider himself. Which we all know he is not. :D

Solo victory today for the legend. Even after Bouhanni had gone solo before. Pretty epic stuff.

Anyone else get the feeling that Laporte17 is actually the real Christophe Laporte ("The Greatest")?

A bit of self-advertisement.

I wouldn't be surprised if a pro cyclist was registered here.

Actually, Luis Angel Maté was a user of a Spanish PCM Forum back in his amateur days. One of the Herrada brothers was registered in one of the most relevant Spanish cycling forums, as well as Juanjo Cobo, which is a very down-to-earth and nice guy.

Cavendish writes in his autobiography, 'At Speed', about how he read through cycling forums about himself, in particular when he was injured.
He didn't mention any forum in particular, but there is quite a high likelihood that it is the CN forum.

EDIT: And Velorooms have cyclists who blog and answer q and a's. In particular, Synergy Baku is active there. I find this thread particularly interesting: http://velorooms.com/index.php?topic=7889.0

Janez Brajkovič used to post on the PCMdaily forum a few years ago :)

Anyway this thread wasn't started by Mr Laporte himself, Forever the Best has it right on this one.
