What is RBR?

This site has a very large Lance following. Which I find comforting.

It’s important for everyone to understand the way Lance thinks to really know him then you can become a fan:

The 2008 Tour de France was a joke. As were Carlos Sastre and Christian Van de Valde.
The French want to line the street and knock me from my bike.
As do the French Director Sportifs.
The French anti-doping labs governed by WADA are corrupt and fraudulent even though I've "never tested positive".
The French riders are lazy and don’t train hard enough.
No other rider trains hard enough or smart enough even though I was beaten like a redheaded step child by a Luxembourger and Spaniard.
5 time Tour winner Bernard Hinault is a w*nker.
3 time Tour winner Greg LeMond has sour grapes and is a s*it stirrer.
I have no conflict with him but I will ruin his business and him.
He has a conflict with me.
It’s ok to belittle and berate your own team mate who is winning the biggest stage race in the world.
It’s ok to completely ignore their victory not turn up their winning celebration and then accuse them off not being a proper team mate.
You should only congratulate your team through the media. Never do it one on one and in personal fashion – its less genuine.
You should also chastise in the media those who are better riders than you.
The Spanish press don’t know reality.
The French Press are nothing but gutter journalism and tabloid.
As is the Italian press and should not be spoken to.
Any UK press featuring either Kimmidge or Walsh should be sued and anyone else quoting them.
The US press is good bar the Wall Street Journal.
The US press is even better when I provide the copy.
The Giro d’Italia is too dangerous for most riders to ride even thou it’s been staged for 100 years with minimal complaints.
However it’s ok to accept 2 million euros to ride the dangerous race.
The Spanish riders are too nervous and have lots to learn even though I broke my collarbone in a Spanish race and was a labelled a “neo pro” by the Spanish riders.
Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that when there is wind you should be up the front of the peleton.
You also need ESP so you have the tip-off from other teams that they are going to force a break.
I’m doing this for awareness even thou I’ve had a book commissioned, a documentary being filmed and agreed a fee for the film rights about my career.
Remember what the NIKE commercial told you – I’m doing it for them.
It’s ok to leave a drug testers sight for 20 minutes.
It’s also ok to call the head of the UCI direct and find out why you’re being drug tested. Every rider has this privilege.
WADA are a joke.
I’m sorry for the cynics who don’t believe in cycling, this is a tough sport and hard work wins it.

This has nothing to do with the thread's subject. It is trolling. Didn't you already get banned once, WBT?

I'm glad I found this place (thanks to TFF for mentioning it on DPF). I never posted much on RBR but lurked quite a bit. It hasn't been the same since Coolhand started banning everybody- I check in there every now and again but that place is dead. Glad I have found where everyone has gone (bigpinkt, under a crooked sky, etc). I feel home again!

Yeah once BigPinkt got banned, I lost all time for the place. They basically banned the most informative poster. Saw a few posts from UtahGrass, loved his posts, and then he got banned. Basically the people who had facts on their side were banned. I feel very strongly about Coolhand though. I accept this is the internet and normally wouldn't lose sleep one way or the other, but the vitriol the guy posted about Lemond was just unbelievable. Anyone then who agreed with his views got away with anything they wanted.

A couple of people I enjoyed over there...lookrider already mentioned, exciton, old school nik, Bianchi Girl, MG 537 were cool also.

Does anyone know why RBR started banning everyone? Did Coolhand crack up? Does it have anything to do with The Paceline going down and RBR hiring the person who used to run The Paceline?

We should grab the last few valuable members of RBR. Blackhat would be a nice addition. Dwayne Berry used to post occasionally at CF before that forum fell apart. He still posts at DPF. If anyone has contact info for lookrider then PM me. I might be able to recover the username of his email because it is a term from a movie, but I cannot remember the domain name.

I believe Dwayne posts mainly on the Wattage Google group about training with power; he knows his stuff.

Interestingly I was also banned from RBR by Coolhand 3 or 4 years ago. It had nothing to do with Armstrong, just myself and another user flaming each other about training techniques or some such idiocy. Cool has an itchy ban hammer.

OK, not only is that coolhand guy a bit prickley, but me thinks he is a bit of a prude: http://forums.roadbikereview.com/showthread.php?t=173582

Well....OK then...

So I wandered on over to the RBR forums, boy what a wasteland. It seemed like there were about 4 folks posting, mostly worshiping at the church of Lance. Met a funny fellow called himself "barhopper" but I think **** hopper was closer. Worst thing though I think they let Thoughtforfood in, no idea why.

You're right it does make much more sense for you to have your head in a guys shorts than for me to.

This reminds me of a scene from Happy Gilmore.

What world do you clowns live in? How could 6 pages of this nonsense have anything to do with professional cycling?

Well it has to do with a forum that has something to do with having something to do with professional cycling. And besides sometimes professional cyclists write stuff on the internet too (so i've been told) and so it has that to do with that too. Besides which if you don't like it you can always go to one of the more important threads such as whether or not to shave your legs and the scientific ramifictions thereof, or the ever popular Lance is a douche/ no Alberto is, so there.

Speaking of which, that loser mod over there at RBR just locked up another thread! Check out the last 5 locked posts. They all have one thing in common. Not-so-sunshiny comments about his hero, Armstrong. Cool my ***. What a tool.

It's good to see bianchigirl in the house. It would be really nice if we could get Dwayne or lookrider in here. Bigpink would be good here too, but since I got banned from there I can't PM anyone to invite them over to this board. Anyone still have access there?

I got banned AGAIN at RBR, and this time not even for impersonating a Neo Nazi from SD. Maybe they saw I had the same IP as that guy or coolhand got pissed that I questioned his manhood by referring to his threats over the Giro upskirt photo? That guy is a real piece of work he is. There are so many people banned over there that I have to wonder who will be left soon?

Oh, and I got Hugh banned also because they thought he was another sock puppet of mine I guess. I RULE!!!

I just opened a new account and got banned in 14 minutes after 6 posts and one PM to coolhand. I will chill for a bit and then sneak back in.

what did you say to coolhand?

In my head this is how the message went...

'Lance (expletive) douche (expletive) (expletive) church choir room with a (expletive) an Olsen twin and a (expletive) rolled up C note (expletive) Boonen.

Nope, I just let him know that he could ban me and I would still be back. Even IP bans can be overcome. I am not going back for a bit because it isn't worth the time and energy, but at some point I will post there again.

I will say that being banned for what I wrote as TFF was not warranted. I really didn't say anything too confrontational. As for Joseph G., I am surprised that I lasted a full 24 with what I was writing there.
