French speaker needed

Memoire du cyclisme is the single best site on the web for palmares and results for all European pro races. The amount of material is amazing. Very few places let you see complete results from every stage of every Giro, Vuelta, TDF and all classics from their very beginning.

It's in French but I can usually figure it out. I need to know how to register though and how much it costs.

Your French could really help me.

Thanks!!!

Or the Google translation will get you through, http://translate.google.com/translat...hl=en&ie=UTF-8

Thanks. Still not as awesome as Memoire du cyclisme which is THE place to go if you want to know who finished 67th (Caput at 15'33") on stage 20 of the 1955 TDF and who was in 15th in GC after the stage (Vitetta at 58'09")

Tried babelfish but it leaves something to be desired.

Someone just posted a thread titled "Hallo from France" in the Introductions forums.

"Serendipity baby!"



(I actually think Dick Vitale is annoying, but it seemed to fit considering March Madness and all.)

Ok, Laggard its pretty simple.

Just click on the "insrivez-vous" link on the front page.

You then get to a registration page.

Fill in all the blanks; Last name, name, age nationality, etc...

Then pick whether you want to be a member (15 euros) or a bennefactor (30)...

There must be a space for your e-mail.

They will then contact you via-email as to what to do next.

You will then pm me (if you want).

Bonne chance.

You can also use Paralink.com for translations. It actually does a pretty decent job for translating pages, IMs, emails, etc...

Hey no problem!

The regular membership is 15 euros per year.

The fancy one ('benefactor' level) is 20 per year and a one time fee of 30.

Did you go through with it?

Try googling the site name, when it comes up there is a link 'translate this page'.

If I recall correctly the google translation is very good for Memoire du cyclisme.

I know it is my favorite reference. A long time ago there was a thread here on riders who won the TDF on their first try. MdC had more accurate info than the official TDF page, which often indicated riders won on their first attempt when it was really they won the first time they finished.
