Hello!

My name is Piotr Haase. I am 31 years old. I live in a little village in Poland, together with my wife Kate and two sons Albert and Adrian. We are happy and we lead quiet live. I have been Team Velo Girls fan .

I really admire you and I think you are very good in that what you do.

I was wandering if you could. Send me Velo Teams autograph.

I would be grateful.

Thank you in advance.

Your sincelery

thats flattering . . . I think in other countries there are people who just collect cycling autographs and they generate lists from odd little cycling websites, we've had a few write in two Roman or I from the middle of no-where on earth.

I think the VG's win this years award for most improved kit!

yes, its big in parts of europe. Especially autographed photo cards (like trading cards)

We get these out of nowhere requests too

We also get a lot out of Belgium during cx season.

Strange request. Maybe we need a team glossy with our stats that we can sign and send to our fans? OK, maybe not with my stats....

Funny, that would have hit my spam filter.....

and after a few paragraphs I would have been convined that they needed my bank account information to wire thier dead fathers WWII German Gold profits that they just sold....

Alomot stopped reading it in your blog.....

That was a cool twist......

If you make Velo Girls trading cards, I'd like to have an autographed set!

Hmmm... I got one of these too, and I'm definitely not a velo girl.
