With any mention of her or any other beautiful woman in this forum it is mandatory that it also be accompanied by a picture, simply to break up the monotony of the constant images of skinny men in tight fitting clothes. I believe there is mention of this rule in the Welcome to the forum thread. :D ;)


at first glance, she seems not skinnier than Rujano but I have to do more research on this matter

Me too. I was a true blue Euskatel-Euskadi fan and his Vuelta performance, what looked like a potential victory before he crashed out, would've been a true highlight for the "Carrots" and for me. His retirement announcement letter left me rather emotional. It was touching to read. I wish him happiness and success in his next adventure in life.

That must be tough for him, but he's lucky he's still young enough and knows about his problem, to still have a good life. Best of luck to him.

Cyclist Jimmy Duquennoy died last night at the age of 23. That reports his team WB-Aqua Protect-Veranclassic, who heard the sad news this morning. The young Belgian died at home.

I just read on Twitter that Robert Kišerlovski retires. Haven't seen any article confirming it though. I remember him being very unlucky in some situations, like crashing just when he seemed to get into shape. When he had a clean run he was a very strong mountain domestique.
