Ok, I know who Bob Roll is, I even like him. I see many posts here, however, that refer to him as Bobke. Can anyone explain the title for me?

Thanks.

Bob Roll used to ride for 7-eleven back in the mid 80s. "Bobke" (boob-ka)was his nickname on that team and it stuck as he made a name for himself as a wild American hardman in the European peloton, or as he calls them: "eurotrash" (he actually rode as a domestique for Hampsten's Giro win). For some highly entertaining reading on all of this, I recommend his book " A ride on the wild side of cycling", published by velopress.
