Rider Nickname Thesaurus



During today's Giro stage, there was some conversation about the use of nicknames for certain riders. I like nicknames, but not everyone does, so I appreciate the need to prioritize clear communication over clever insider-jokes. Perhaps we could maintain a list of nicknames, both peloton wide and PdC to help the confused.

Actual list on the jump...
