    Do pro riders read the forums?

    I imagine they wouldn't have the time right now, but do you think any of them do, just to see what the great unwahed think? I know I would. Hmmmm. Maybe that says something about me.

    Only Greg Lemond
    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    Not a chance. If they tried to keep up with what everyone says about them, there wouldn't be time to ride.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    back when I first started as a moderator Lance did read the forums not sure what username he
    had. He had links to BF on his website as well as a few other more racing specific forums.

    I think now most just twitter or use facebook.

    Of course they do. Like gods in the heavens they check in for a chuckle every once in a while. when it gets too sad they leave again.

    I know that he has his groupies that do most of it. One of them has a few usernames.
    Livestrong. The personal fundmaker of Lance Armstrong. The company who are in business to not donate to cancer research, but only to inform people that cancer is bad.

    Armstrong. The man without integrity, no care for the sport, and no problem with testing positive for EPO and making donations to cover it up.
