It's a great concept, and I'd love to vote/nominate (and get cards), but can you clarify the meaning of, 'Megalobrevets' for me.
I've heard it mentioned, but am not sure of its exact meaning.
When I hear the term, all I can think of is a toaster brand.

A 'Megalobrevet', as far as I am aware, is a fairly lengthy ride done at speed, with a load of fellow hammer maniacs.

A Brevet is the Readers Digest Treasure Hunt of bike rides. A Megalobrevet is like a Brevet but with no books or treasure hunts involved. And way more gore and aggression.

@Heath Yep that's megalobrevets explained nicely.

Remember people, any TCC Superstar can be rated. As long as a decent photo is available, a card can be made.

I'm feeling nostalgic for the super trumps of my childhood.
