Flèche Names

One of the best parts about doing a flèche is picking the name. The 2010 Carolina Flèche teams, with 31 riders, were named:

Team 1 (Riders on the Bubble) 4 members
started at 09:00 from Apex, North Carolina

Team 2 (Diamond and Bents) 5 members
started at 08:00 from Bishopville, South Carolina

Team 3 (Flèche with 2 Veg) 3 members
started at 08:00 from College Hill, North Carolina

Team 4 (FEZ (Flèche Eating Zombies) 6 members
started at 07:00 from Petersburg, Virginia

Team 5 (Flèche Crawlers) 4 members
started at 09:00 from Durham, North Carolina

Team 6 (Flèche and Blood) 3 members
started at 10:00 from Atlantic Beach, North Carolina

Team 7 (Sandhill Ramblers) 6 members
started at 07:30 from Greensboro, North Carolina

Thanks to Tony for posting the names on the NC list.

For sheer length, our 2007 team name surely takes the cake, Shirley:
Night of the Day of the Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Return of the Revenge of the Terror of the Attack of the Evil, Mutant, Hellbound, Flèche-Eating Subhumanoid Zombified Living Dead, Part 3.

We even made a poster.

Cap'n Ende came up with the name and we all praised his cleverness. Imagine our surprise once we realized it had been plagiarized from a wikipedia entry. The horror!

Some say plagiarized, I prefer discovered!
