Many riders have surnames that are also nouns. I apologise if this ruins your TV viewing, those once exotic Euro names can actually prove a bit dull but here are some more of the peloton’s names translated from their home language into English.
Lars Bak – Lars Rear
Edvald Boasson Hagen – Edvald Boasson Garden
Grega Bole – Grega Pain
Koen De Kort – Koen The Short
Marcel Kittel – Marcel Labcoat
Adriano Malori – Adriano Illnesses
Grégory Rast – Grégory Rest
