LaFlorecita reaches 30.000 posts

31 May 2018 19:10

History has been written this week on the CN forums. For the first time, a poster has breached the elusive barrier of 30.000 posts on CN. Alberto Contador has retired, but his most dedicated fan is still going strong.

Congrats Flo!!!

Congrats!
30,000 posts at 7 years sounds way too lot, given my not even 2000 posts in 2 years. :p
I think it's the sign of a clean rider and a real sportsman to be attracted to the bigger challenge over the ultimate result. Good luck with the Giro/Tour double, Chris Froome. -Phil Gaimon

Impressive digging! Interesting that most of the posts came during the ban period. Or maybe there was a lot to be said about the case in the run-up to the ban. Fewest posts during his most successful period.

I think I might have misread that Feb 2013 thread: that was theyoungest reaching 10,000, and others saying that La Flo was close to it. But by 9 Sept that year she was up to 12,000 +, so probably passed the 10k sometime that spring without getting a dedicated thread for it.
