Likes: Eisel, Stannard, Dan Martin, Thomas, Pozzo, Nibbles, Rolland, Kadri, Terpstra, Kwiat, Vanmarcke, Purito, Cav, Eddie Bos, Rojas (for comedy value), Wellens, Yates, Yates, Swift, Konig.

Dislikes: Froome, Millar, Valverde, Gerrans, Matthews, Porte, Sagan, Kittel, Kreuziger, Horner.
 
Faves: Fuglsang, Cancellara, JRod, AC, CAS, Boonen, Sagan (for personality reasons)

Foes: Every single rider on SKY except Eisel, EBH (cause he's norwegian) and the Henao's. Almost all belkin riders with few exceptions (Vanmarcke). A lot of garmin riders and a lot of the overhyped OPQS riders.

Rider I'd have gender reallignment surgery to have his children: Cancellara (just think about the physique of those kids!), Kittel (Dolph Lundgren kids) and Bennati for purely objective reasons.

Teams:
Dislikes: SKY, Belkin, Garmin
Teams I don't care about: Lampre, Cannondale, Movistar, FDJ, Europcar
Likes: Trek Factory Racing, Astana, Katusha and Tinkoff-Saxo
 
Favourites: Vanmarcke, Vansummeren, Štýbar, Kwiatkowski, Vandenbergh, Langeveld, Devolder, Sylv.Chavanel, Pozzovivo, Pirazzi, Moser, Battaglin, Cunego, Intxausti, Nieve, Landa, G.Izagirre, I.Izagirre, Txurruka, Bardet, Riblon, Geniez, Offredo, Turgot, Gaudin, Fédrigo, Roy

Foes: Rogers, Gerrans, Froome, Horner, Roulston, Farrar, Wiggins, A.Schleck, F.Schleck, Valverde, Pellizotti, Scarponi, Pozzato, L.L.Sanchez

Riders I miss: Moncoutié, Freire, Soler, Flecha, Mayo, Garzelli, I kinda miss Riccò + Santambrogio :eek: (mainly because they were just ridiculous and everyone else hates them so much)
Probably some others I forgot

:
Emilia Fahlin, Sara Olsson, Miriam Bjørnsrud, Jermaine Post. Moser, Chavanel and pre-puffy Santambrogio are pretty good-looking

Teams I like: FDJ, Bardiani, Colombia, OPQS in the classics, I generally like Garmin even if I think their message is kinda bs'ing. Their Beyond the Peloton series they used to do helped

Teams I don't like: Sky, GreenEdge
 
Pretty sure there's already been a dozen threads like these ...

Like: Sep Vanmarcke !!, Nikolas Maes, Jeremy Roy (a bit less more recently for reasons I'm not entitled to say here, well overall I still like him), Cyril Gauthier, Niki Terpstra, Fumy Beppu, Will Routley, Lars van der Haar, Kevin Pauwels, David & Mathieu Van der Poel, Philipp Walsleben, Enrico Franzoi, Arnold Jeannesson, Julien Absalon, Gert-Jan Bosman, Klaas Vantornout, Kevyn Ista, Bart Aernouts, Jeremy Powers, Radomir Simunek, Émilien Viennet (especially when he crossed over), Tom Meeusen, etc.

Last time we've been polled I named Arnaud Jouffroy, he was my ultimate favourite. I miss him so much, just like Jan Denuwelaere, Olivier Kaisen and Aurélien Duval :(

Dislike: all riders I'm not entitled to give reason why on this section, every sprinter (nothing against them personally though) who cannot do anything but bunch sprinting, every leadout men for sprinters who can't do anything but leading out sprinters, a great many others but no need to name them.

Likes: Especially GVA (The only rider that really matters+ he's from my home town) Phil Gil, EBH, Cunego, Bart Wellens (and most riders who keep disappointing race after race :p). I also really like Dan Martin, Contador,Weening,Colbrelli, Cisse De Greef, Izagirre's, Mathieu Van der Poel,most young talented riders (especially the ones from the track), great descenders and almost all riders who aren't afraid to attack.


Dislike: A strong dislike for Froome, Porte, Rogers (both for the rider and the person), all donkey-turned-into-racehorse dopers (except for Ricco, that guy was awesome). I dislike ex-dopers who come back and become the most anti-doping guys pretending everything is different now (Millar ed). I dislike Valverde because of the way he normally races. Not a big fan of the way Purito and Moreno take 95% of their wins.

Teams: Not really any favorites. Maybe Kelme in the past. I like attacking teams like Bardiani, Euskaltel in the past. I don't like Sky because of all the new cycling/marginal gains hypocrisy. I also rather dislike OPQS as a team (not the riders) because of Lefevere. Absolutely worst person ever in cycling history, pure maffia.
 
Favorites: Pozzovivo, Cobo, Voeckler, Andy Schleck, Talansky, Hesjedal, Sammy Sanchez, Phinney, Dennis, Cunego, Sagan, Gesink, Mollema, Kwiatkowski, Vanmarcke, Rolland, Cancellara, Horner, Rebellin, Anton, Van Hummel, Jelle Vanendert, most of the other cobbled classics riders except for Boonen

Least favorites: Porte, Wiggins, Cavendish, Rogers, LL Sanchez

:) The reason Purito is in the foe list is because Valverde is in the favourites'. No irritation against him whatsoever. :p
Lol. My hate against Valverde isn't that much anymore since the WC's. You have to understand a little bit my frustration back then;)

Otherwise, it would not be unlogical if you irrated on Purito's tactics during the finale:p

He announced his comeback. Will ride for Vastgoedservice next year, the team of Rob Peeters.

Favourites: The only real favourites I have are Mathieu van der Poel and Merhawi Kudus. A bunch of others random lesser favourites of mine are Contador, Purito, Boonen, Vanmarcke, Kristoff, Nibali, Voeckler, Quintana, Arredondo, Hansen, Lulu, Tjallingi. I also like most Dutch, Eritrean and Colombian riders in general.

Foes: Peter Sagan, Bradley Wiggins. Though Wiggo temporarily stops being my foe in Roubaix. I also have a small initial dislike for American riders, which can be easily overcome when I get to know the rider a little bit better.

Rider I'd have gender reallignment surgery to have his children: I'll pass this one......

Any team comments: All Dutch teams and Astana get a bonus. Sky gets a minus. Colombia also get's a minus, but just the team, not the riders. Also riders who rode for Euskaltel get a bonus.
 
Favourites: Pinot, Nibali, Sagan, Voeckler, Boonen, Thomas, Talansky, Flecha. As of recently Rolland.

Foes: Contador, Rogers, Kittel, Horner, Farrar

Babies: Nibali

Teams: Generally pro Garmin, FDJ. Anti BMC.

Favs: All the Colombians, all the Italians, all those that take the vuelta seriously at least once in their career.

Foes: No foes but I don't watch sprints as they bore me to death.

Sex change: Abstain.

Teams: I hate that Team Colombia can't manage to go ProTour. Big props for OPQS, AG2R and Movistar for having Colombian leaders. Love OGE for giving Chaves a chance after that horrendous crash. Respect for Europcar and Astana for always managing to entertain.

Favourites: Stybar, the french young guard (Pinot, Demare, Bardet, Barguil, Vichot,...), Tommeke, colombian pocket rockets

Foes: Old doping guard pretending nothing happened

Rider I'd have gender reallignment surgery to have his children. I pass

Any team comments: Steppers all the way, fdj and any squad with a nice cobbles team
 
Favorites: There are many. The biggest are probably: Contador, Quintana, Jrod, Tjay, Talansky, Cancellara, Cavendish, Rafal, Aru, Nibali, Degenkolb, ect.

Foes: Froome, Wiggins (for the most part, sometimes I like him...it's confusing), Kittel, Sagan, Shleck, and if there is someone (who I usually like) who is getting in the way of the person I want to see win, I don't like them at that point in time.

Any team comments: I like Oricagreenedge. I like White as a team manager. I dislike Sky....alot...but not every rider on their roster. I want to see Saxo win the team competition at the Tour again.
 
Favourites:Evans, Quintana, Nibali, Purito, Gilbert.

Foes:Valverde, Wiggins, Froome, Horner, Contador.

Rider I'd have gender reallignment surgery to have his children: Pass :confused:

Any team comments: Favs OGE, BMC. Foes: Astana, Sky, Movistar.
 
Favs: Wiggo, Hesjedal, D.Martin, Gthomas, Stannard after his great HetVolk, Phinney, Navardauskas, Millar, Slagter, Eisel, Hansen, Sep, Talansky

not favs: Voeckler, Kwiatkowski (until he stays with OPQS), Sagan, Nibali

undecided: Spilak, Quintana, Rolland, Froome, Costa

team: pro GARMIN since the great 2011 (VanSummeren, Thor, Tour TTT). pro Sky mostly because of the clinic. don't like OPQS, like DRAPAC.

wishes: 1 Wiggo winning Roubaix riding for Sky (twitter and clinic meltdown), 2 Wiggo winning Roubaix riding for any team, 3 Deignan winning something big, 4 Slagter winning Amstel


ps. the worst equipment change of the last few years: BELKIN

from the 2013 perfect Giant-Oakley-EtxeOndo, to the weird 2014 Bianchi-RudyProject-Santini
