- Vuelta: Joaquim Rodriguez…. "Porito"?
- CaptainFlashheartMemberPosted 5 years ago
His nickname in the professional peloton is Purito, Spanish for little cigar, a name he was given in an early season training camp during his first year as a professional with ONCE-Eroski. When some of his teammates stepped up the pace in a small climb, he passed them making a hand gesture appearing to be smoking a cigar, suggesting he was climbing without much effort. The gesture was not welcomed by his teammates, who made him smoke a real cigar as a hazing ritual later in the eveningDigger90Member
OK, have Googled around, searched Wikipedia etc and can’t find the answer.
Why is Joaquim Rodriguez called “Porito”? Is that his last name (many Spaniards have very long family names) or is it a nickname? If a nickname what does it mean…. can’t find any info at all on this..Posted 5 years ago
