You've been registered since Feb 2010 though, any confessions to make who you really are? :D :D

In all seriousness and without the silliness, he looks like a great guy :).

Here's the scene where he gave Valverde his bike and exited the race:

So isso is actually a proto-hater! :D

To be completely honest, I only became a fan of Madrazo in summer 2010 (around Pologne and Montreal), and he only became one of my favourite riders around Tirreno 2011. That's because before June 2010 I hadn't been following cycling as closely as I used to for a couple of years, so I didn't know much about him - just that he was this young, talented fellow that Caisse was developing veeeery slowly.

So I'm afraid I can't be an officer of the Madrazo Mafia, but I can be an NCO :p

I remembered isso talking about him when I joined, so searched forums for Madrazo references from over a year ago, and found a bunch of isso posts from before I signed up.

I was only joking, but thanks for explaining anyways :).

@El_Chingon thanks aswell, cyclists and running on a 10%+ ramp do not go together well.

Does anyone know how old he is? I vaguely remember him coming on to the pro scene as a neo pro for Saunier Duval(?). I've noticed him doing some great work for his team leaders a few times. Seems like a really good team player and domestique.

Thankx for posting those pix ElC! :D

I caught that partially this morning but didn't see the whole debacle on the feed...

I remember thinking Madrazo was kind of a cult geek when they chose him for the TdU hype hero a few years ago

And some good stories

el diario montanes

¿Menuda etapa! Ángel Madrazo (Saunier Duval) hizo una verdadera demostración de casta y de fuerza en el primer sector de la jornada de ayer del Circuito Montañés 2008 y tuvo su premio en una más que merecida victoria en la pista Óscar Freire de Torrelavega en donde, literalmente por medio tubular, se impuso a Obst (Team 3C) para alegría de los numerosos aficionados que presenciaron la llegada. Y no era para menos, ya que las victorias de los cántabros no son demasiado frecuentes en esta carrera (la última fue la de Vidal Celis hace un par de ediciones).

Love Madrazo as a cyclist but in some of his early pictures he does stike an uncanny resemblance to the character Fogell in the movie Superbad.

LMAO! Too true, maybe his forum nickname should become "McLovin" :D

Yet another reason to love the guy....
