Shooting from point-blank at directory, RhD...
Not a Croat, but as Đoković once said: "That's the same." So let me help you with that Croat's (family)name.
Strict phonemic principle is the key, so: "Write as you speak and read as it is written"
C like zink f like finger r like red a like appointment n like no k like j like y o u like book ko v like love i like see e like bed n g like girl i and c like Đoković. So, it must've been a typo, but better late than never to make it clear.

That's… a relief. I like long(ish) names that roll off the tongue.
That name does not roll off anything!
Yeah, because a person with the name Filip Marko Cfrankjkoviengic just doesn't exist. PCS - you know, the site with the most amazing database ™ - just mixed up two different Croatian riders - Filip Cengic and Marko Frankovic - into one person.

Perhaps they can be persuaded to ride a tandem under this name.

So what you're saying is that they cloned Birgitte Krogsgaard (Andersen)*, but merged those two guys into one rider? This genetic manipulation of innocent cyclists is getting suspicious...
Though it does seem like it was just on the birthday list they've been merged. They each got their own personal page.

*See women's race thread.
 
I've just checked PCS today and found out there is a rider named Blake Quick... and he seems to be a quick guy indeed as he finished 2nd in a sprint, ahead of Pelucchi, Reguigui and McCabe!

P.S. just realised that he is only 19. Might be a rider to watch for the future.

Soraya Paladin. :cool:
There's a name that wouldn't feel out of place in an epic fantasy story.
Depends on the arrangement, I suppose.
But, regardless of it, you could portray her in a lyric manner... "The long eyelashes were overlaying her ruddy cheekbones and white face..."
That could fit in any setting.

Soraya wouldn't look too out of place either in a role in an epic fantasy story.
 
I will not stop spamming this thread!

The names you come across when you check the PCS birthday-list daily (ignoring the earlier attempt at merging to riders):
Apparently there's an Egyptian conti rider called Islam Ramadan. That's like a... US rider called Christian Fast.

You might want to clarify if you meant an adjective "fast" or a noun "fast".
Or a verb… not that I think it matters most; people are not gonna care if a name is an adjective, a noun, or a verb.
But I also realised that Christian Easter might be a better example.

Is that a person who is more from the East than one from Sjælland?

To be fair it's more like Christian September, or Christian Burning Heat if you're trying to be more literal.
