New ST Cycling Member....from the fires of HELL

In our attempt to intimidate the competition this season, we've dug deep (pun intended) to find our newest team member.







In our new series of introducing our new members on our newish blog, these articles will outline new news on our newsworthy teammates.







Please join me in welcoming New-Rob to the team. Otherwise refered to as Rob Lukacs, otherwise known as 'Satan's pool-boy that got away'.

While New-Rob has limited bike racing experience, he does have plenty of training shoving random objects over his head, which we figure is pretty comparable to bike racing and should set him up to be a formidable opponent to his competition in the Cat5 ranks.

We had the chance to ask Rob a few questions about his training and racing history, as well as a few questions about his general day-to-day life.


ST Cycling: Rob, being predominantly comfortable competing in warm climates; have you ever tried something that was completely outside your comfort zone?




Rob: Funny you should mention that, just the other month I competed, and dominated in, the World Banana-Slide Backyard Showdown. I think that day I proved to myself, and anyone who dare compete against me, that I am adaptable to crush people in any environment.


ST Cycling: Are you a competitive guy?

Rob: Well, to be perfectly honest, it's hard to find real competition. What am I going to do? Compete in a good looks race? I am obviously really really really ridiculously good looking. In other areas I use my good looks to my advantage; for example I call my game face 'Blue Steel'. I think this picture says it all.

ST Cycling: During spins we notice you bring an exotic Willier full carbon bling bling ride that makes others jealous. Are you aware that your president stills rides on a 2001 aluminum Cannondale?

Rob: Don't hate me because my bike is beautiful. Also.... I just put a new bumper sticker on my BMW M5; it says "Poor people make me sick".

ST Cycling: Every avid cyclist has a set of heros in the Pro peloton. James Tallian loves Nick Gates with his 4 Latern Rouges, Rob Woolley loves Robbie McEwen for his personality, and A-Train Shaw loves Tom Boonen for his glutes. Who is your favourite rider?

Rob: That's tougher than a coffin nail (reference to death and overall hellish feeling intended) to figure out. I admire Jens Voigt for his attacking nature and laying waste to his competitors, however he doesn't always win ?!?! The next cyclist that wins every race he goes in will be my new hero.

ST Cycling: What are your thoughts on the current drug situation in cycling?

Rob: I haven't heard anything. Is this a recent thing?

ST Cycling: The team here at ST Cycling can't help but notice your last name reminds us somehow of a porn star name, however we can't put our finger on why. Any help in this regard?

Rob: I get that a lot. To help you out, I think if you were to say my name with a heavy Irish accent, it would become pretty apparent why you get that funny feeling.

ST Cycling: Thanks, you're right (said in an uncomfortable fidgity manor). With that we conclude our interview.

WICKED INTERVIEW, WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO NAIL DOWN ROB LIKASZ SINCE HE ANNOUNCED HE WAS ENTERING THE CYCLE RACING SCENE LAST FALL.

THE ONLY QUESTION YOU DIDN'T ASK IN YOUR INTERVIEW WAS "HOW DID SUCH A RIDICULOUSLY GOOD LOOKING PORN STAR (WE LOVED YOU IN BANANA SLIDE 2 BY THE WAY) TAKE UP THE SPORT OF CYCLING?" AND DO YOU THINK THE HOURS IN THE SADDLE WILL AFFECT YOUR FORMER CAREER?"

LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING YOUR NEXT INTERVIEW
