Abdoujaparov [Apr. 10th, 2009|04:13 am]
Were pretty awesome tonight.

"The band are named after a professional cyclist Djamolidine Abdoujaparov,  from Uzbekistan.

Djamolidine Abdoujaparov (born 28 February 1964 in Tashkent) is a former professional road racing cyclist from Uzbekistan. Abdoujaparov was a sprinter, nicknamed "The Tashkent Terror"[1] as he was so ferocious in the sprints. His unorthodox and often erratic sprinting caused a number of crashes.

In 1991 "Abdou" won the competition despite a spectacular crash during the final stage on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, where - with 100 metres to the finish - he hit a giant promotional drinks can and somersaulted into the air."
