... this was my result!

"You are George Hincapie! You are a New Yorker that is one of the
best one-day riders to ever live, but you never quite make it to the
top of the podium. Your personal life is kind of a secret- what are
you hiding?"

Well this is what it said for me.

I am Eric Zabel. Definitely one of the greats, and loved by your native Germany. You've been around for a long time, and know what it takes to succeed. You may not be the fastest any more, but you are more consistent than the young whipper-snappers.

Watch out for those nasty pop-ups!

Funny quiz though. . .
Zabel, too...Brooks
Feb 6, 2003 4:14 PM
although the question about when do you go fast didn't have my answer: "go fast?" At the end I go faster, but that hardly constitutes "going fast". Time my sprint with a calendar!
And, yeah, those pop-ups are BAAAAAD!
Zabel as well! (I wish I had 50% of his talent) -nmTig

Yep, Zabelfracisco
Feb 6, 2003 5:12 PM
But I'd like to think I am more along the lines of an unknown domestique.
Me too.look271

You are Lance Armstrong! You focus on one big event per year, and you do it well. You work harder than everyone else, but it costs you your social life

guess this explains why I've burned every weekend hour since october on my bike.

why one weekend with my parents led me (a college kid) to drink more than I had in the past month.

oh well. I'd better win now.

great questions though. I particularly liked "At a party you:" - experiment with club drugs and drive my car into sidewalks.

I would have said bobke but based on my chosen responses:

You are Richard Virenque! You are incredibly talented and can go up a hill faster than a bat out of hell, which is funny because of your evil reputation. Your past is kinda suspect, your success may have come through some illegal activity, but no one can prove anything. Despite your bad rep, you are still adored by all of France, even though you're not really French.

virenque's cool, Ive been a fan of his of late.
I'm Lance Armstrong!Raven1911

Boy do I wish! What a quiz. Thought it was fun to take. I am a hard worker and spend a heck of a lot of time on the bike and the gym.

Another "Lance Armstrong." I always saw myself more as an in-his-prime Pantani, but using non-performance enhancing drugs only.

Gee, maybe that's why I bale when the asphalt meets the incline!

"You are Mario Cipollini! You are the fastest thing on two wheels, as long as the road stays flat and smooth. You are definitely the most stylish rider in the peloton, and you know it. In the off season you live with your super model wife in Milan, and model the new Versace spring line."

Sweet.

Uh-oh. I'm only 20, do I have a future, or am I doomed?

You are Jan Ullrich! You came to success at a young age and have been trying to get back to the top ever since. You are arguably the most talented rider, but your skills haven't been totally developed. Despite a bad year with knee problems and a suspension for some recreational pill popping, you are destined to be a legend
ulrich as well. only without the talent(nm)rufus

With all of the Zabel post on here, could you imagine the field sprint? Hopefully McEwan wouldn't start throwing punches...

I just took the poll on the quizilla website and was assaulted with spam. Click at your own risk! I was Zabel, by the way.
