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.

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

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.
