Le Tour de France

Posted in Uncategorized on July 18, 2008 by justletithappen

Well a few days ago Riccardo Ricco, an Italian rider for the Saunier Duval team tested positive for EPO making him the third rider this year to get booted from the Tour for doping. Oh, and his team is no longer in the race either…

Ricco’s nickname is The Snake… or cobra or something along those lines because he is always ready to strike… at least that’s what they say. The more I get into the cycling world the more I realize that people have all of these wacky animal names (ie. the snake, the chicken, and lots others I can’t think of). If I could come up with my own nickname I think I would have to use something that would strike fear into the hearts of all my competitors. These are what I came up with:

  1. Puma
  2. Walrus
  3. Unicorn
  4. Sasquatch
  5. Phoenix
  6. Chupacabra…

Chupathingy, how bout that? I like it, it’s got a ring to it…

Now that my name is almost decided upon, I will need some sweet motivation. How about this:
