I remember that one time the Contador Poliçia and the Canibali were at it with each other after 2014 'rider of the year' stuff and I accidentally said Contador had wiped Nibs bum, so Hitch corrected me and said I think Cineteq and @Rollthedice had that covered but I'm not sure.

I was slipping Freudiantly.

We have the breathing through his nose meme, closely related to Woet Poel pulling what is left of the peloton (always in single figures) while drinking a can of coke
Just a heads up, i often hear French and English speakers pronounce "Wout" (Poels/van Aert/...) as "wood". The correct pronounciation (in case you misspelled it due to hearing it mispronounced all the time) is just like the word "out" (like inside and out)... (W)out.

Unless you're a Spanish TV commentator, in which case it's not Wout van Aert but Woet wan Aërt.
 
The myth of Vino/other far outstrips the og reason for including him but it mirrors the mythical rider. In generations to come, all they will know of is this mystical rider called Vino. They will not know if such an attacking, ballsy rider actually existed or if he was a cryptid that was used to scare other riders of being attacked at all corners. Thus will live the legend.
 
As I remember it, there were a lot of 'who will win this race?' type polls back in late '09 and early '10 when Vino first returned. At first people were divided about his return but as time went by that intangible X factor he brought in his unpredictability meant he became a popular pick for 'write-in' votes under 'other' in those polls, somebody (might have been Hitch) added 'Other/Vino' as the 10th option in a poll, to acknowledge the number of write-ins for him, then it became a running gag on every "who will win?" for stages, especially after he won a perceived flat stage in the 2010 Tour. For a while, the mods had even put it so that if you had a poll, 'other' would default to 'Other/Vino' meaning he became an option for polls like "best format of racing" or "best climb in northern Italy" or stuff like that.

Pisti's traditional modus operandi was to post an extremely selective rundown of two rider's palmarès, omitting lots of races from the palmarès of the rider he didn't like (often Valverde), and insult the field of the competition in those races while trumping up the strength of the fields in the races his preferred rider had done well in - even if they were the same race. For one rider, the Vuelta 2011 was a joke race with Sergey Lagutin just outside the top 10, Maxime Monfort in the top 5 and a top 3 who'd never podiumed a GT before; for another rider it was a phenomenally strong field with several past and future multi-time champions, the reigning Giro winner (even though Scarponi hadn't acquired that Giro yet and was a non-factor in the Vuelta) and the previous year's champion-elect.

I would prefer not to.
Love that you replied to all this with a massive post.

How meta.

Also can we change the thread title to

"History of CN forum is the new forum memes thread"

Pistrollero had basically become a meme himself by the time he was permabanned.

According to him unless a rider was a traditional Belgian Classics hard man, a flyweight Spanish climber not named Valverde, or Fabian Cancellara they were a garbage rider not worthy of the World Tour. Unless, of course, he needed to tout them as successful in order to talk up a rider he did like...

I had forgotten about WonderLance consistently writing "Evens", that tiny stupid detail was hilarious to me for some reason.
That was part of Wonderlance's epic rolling flame war with AusCycleFan94, who was really just an Evans fan masquerading as a cycling fan.

The best part of that was when he started referring to ACF as a 16yo fan girl (this was 2010, and taking the '94 into account).

Whoever was behind that account was a godd@mn genius.

Pistollero was one of the great characters of the forum until his untimely demise a few years ago. He would threaten to puke if Nibali would win but then would cheer for Nibs against Froome. His last post about Froome was a classic.

He's not posting on the forum on a regular basis, but as a meme Durianrider actually transcends this forum.
I mean, there are actual memes about him. A wannabe cult leader who'll explain to you how disc brakes on roadbikes are causing Covid.
It's so true I can't tell if that last line is serious or not.

Also I'm pretty sure pro riders have all heard of Durianrider.
