Can anyone explain me what the purpose of this is? or are we just listing songs we think would fit certain riders?
This is the most serious forum I have ever been on, lighten up.
It's the most diverse I've been on and I've found that, with such a diverse user base, people's idea and understanding of humour doesn't always translate well and can be mis-construded to the point where a thread that might see obviously a bit of fun to a native English speaker could be confusing to a non-native speaker who may not realise it's intended to be fun.

GenericBoonenFan may be an incredibly serious person who hates fun, but they are probably just genuinely asking if there is a serious element to this as they don't quite get the angle.



GenericBoonenFan, it's just a bit fun. The aim is to pick any song that somehow represents a pro rider in some way to you, usually because of the lyrics.

Thank you and yes I'm the most serious Belgian you will ever find, that's why I'm in charge of importing american beer. Because it's a joke...




I should stop attempting to be funny, anyway here's my contribution:
André Greipel --> André Greipel
 
So many perfect suggestions, I can't stop wondering how creative some of you people can be!

Fresh favourite song of Kris Boeckmans after yesterday: The Beatles - I Want To Hold Your Hand

I don't understand nothing apart from Boonen here, but I find this catchy and the girl on the left really cute. :D
There it is my spring hymn... Starting from Saturday, already.
Yeah... I still can't get over the girl on left side, do I need to go out a bit more?
That depends a bit on how old you are.
Probably still not old enough to net hot Belgian music video girls :D

How ever you feel is right.

But, don't think it's just you who can't get it out of head... It's made to be that way, and a lot more.
I'm trying to promote it here through my modest resources. Not a cycling mad society, but the song and video are offering universally attractive message and something unbelievably intriguing for us here.

Thanx for posting it. I'd, probably, have found it myself, but sooner better than later.
