Looking through random startlists, and I think this guy is in the competition for "Most Impossibly French Name"

Henri-François Renard-Haquin (procyclingstats.com)

What about...
 
I don't know her age, but I doubt she's old old.

She seems to be a bit less young on PCS:
 
This name in the results of the Cadel Evans race for women caught my attention:


I don't know if this is a South African thing but I've never seen a last name in parentheses.

She got married late last year, and this is the name she uses on her Instagram, but I doubt it's the legal one. I think she has taken her husband's name (Pienaar), but Le Court is still the one registered with the UCI.

Therefore slightly more like a rainbow than the rainbow jersey.

I wish the UCI would be more honest and describe it as the "as near as we could get to the olympic rings without being sued" jersey: if they wanted it to look like a rainbow, they could do easily.

Good to know that this guy can see...

I don't know how cool it is to have a name that sounds like semen.
