# /r/Peloton Pre-TDF Survey 2020

Gentlemen, Ladies and those otherwise addressed - we know you've been waiting for a good thing, and the survey results are finally ready!
The answers were collected from you all during August 2020 with 1428 unique replies. That's a participation of 0.5% of all subscribers! That's really not too bad, when you keep in mind how popular these kind of surveys are. But we here at /peloton want to show you that this is all about presenting the information in the subreddit to cater better to our audience!
Updated after a few hours to include some more historical data the final edit that for some reason wasn't copied properly

Without further ado, let's get cracking on the response

You and Cycling

1. Where do you live?

Country 2015 2016 2018 Mar 2018 Aug 2019 2020

Italy 1.45% 1.44% 0.65% 1.03% 1.07%
Largely the same picture as ever, with the US leading the way, the UK in second and then a sliding scale of Europeans countries. Slovenia continues to pick its way up the pile for obvious reasons!

Pretty much the same as last year, with the usual reddit demographics of majority 20 somethings dominating.

4. How much of the men's season do you watch/follow?

Type March '18 (%) August '18 (%) 2019 (%) 2020 (%)
Grand Tours 84.7 92.0 90.2 87.3
Monuments 79.1 74.9 79 75.9
WT Stage races 67.4 62.4 70.5 71.7
WT One day races 73.3 59.8 62.3 60.7
Non WT Stage races 32.6 16.7 17.4 25
Non WT One day races 34.8 13.7 17.4 20.7
Literally everything I can consume 35.9 18.1 21.1 27.1
Whilst GT following may be down (somehow), all the lower level stuff is up, which makes sense considering how desperate we have been for any racing during the season shutdown.

5. Do you maintain an interest in women's professional road racing?

Do you maintain an interest in women's professional road racing? '19 '20
Yes 49.8 49.2
No 50.2 50.8
Still very much a half/half interest in women's cycling on the subreddit.

6. How much of the women's season do you follow?

The following is true for the half of you that follows womens cycling.
How Much %
Just the biggest televised events 63.15%
Most of the live televised/delayed coverage stuff 29.08%
All televised racing 5.09%
Down to .Pro & beyond 2.69%

7. How long have you been watching cycling?

How Long %
Under a year 2,95%
1-3 years 19,50%
4-6 years 19,85%
7-9 years 14,10%
10-12 years 13,81%
13-15 years 7,15%
15-20 years 10,73%
20-25 years 6,17%
25 years + 5,75%
Simplified the years a little this time, but whilst we have a fair number of newbies, most people have picked the sport up since around 2013/14.

Sporting Favourites

8. Do you have like/dislike feelings about WT teams?

Once more, 14.4% of people really don't have feelings on the subject.
Of those that do:
AG2R Astana Bahrain Bora CCC Cofidis Quick-Step EF FDJ
Like 352 213 127 770 156 116 847 724 423
Meh 775 620 773 415 889 896 310 448 700
Dislike 52 356 263 31 112 141 71 37 53
Karma 300 -143 -70 739 44 -25 776 677 370
Israel Lotto Michelton Movistar NTT Ineos Jumbo Sunweb Trek UAE
Like 135 364 517 231 101 304 925 279 383 118
Meh 740 764 626 646 931 414 282 805 765 734
Dislike 302 40 52 326 121 562 53 97 42 331
Karma -167 324 465 -95 -20 -258 872 182 341 -213
So, the most popular team this year is Jumbo-Visma, followed by Quick-Step & Bora-hansgrohe. Least popular are Ineos & UAE.
As per usual, no one cares about NTT & CCC, with nearly 81% of users rating NTT as meh. Pretty damning stuff.
Lastly, we have the usual historical comparison of how teams have fared over time, normalised to respondents to that question on the survey.
Things to note then, firstly that the Astana redemption arc is over, seeing them back in the negative, maybe Fulgsangs spring issues helped aid that? The petrodollar teams of UAE & Bahrain are stubbornly negative too, with Israel keeping up the Katusha negative streak. Meanwhile, at the top end, EF & Jumbo go from strength to strength, whilst some others like Sunweb are sliding over time - their transfer policies no doubt helping that.

10. Do you ride a bike regularly?

Answer 2018Mar 2018Aug 2019 2020

For racing 20.6% 20.6% 15.9% 17.7%
No, I don't 14.2% 12.9% 14.8% 13.6%
Still a fairly small group of racers out of all of us

11. Out of the sports you practice, is cycling your favourite?

Yes No
58,29% 41,71%
A new addition to the survey prompted by a good point last time, just over half of us rate cycling as the favourite sport we actually do.

Paid Streaming services 32.3% 35.4% 38.3% 46.3%
Year on year, paid streaming services go up - the increasing availability of live content legally continues to improve, and so do the numbers on the survey.

16. Where else do you follow races live (in addition to watching them)?

17. Do you use /Peloton mostly in classic reddit or redesign when on the desktop?

Type 2018 Aug 2019 2020
Classic 75.1% 67.2% 46.2%
Redesign 24.9% 32.8% 53.8%
Time to abandon ship. The end has come.

18. With what version of reddit do you browse the sub?

Other bits and bobs

20. Did you think back in March we would see any more racing this year?

Yes No
52,81% 47,19%
Despite the threat, we have seen racing again

21. Will we manage to fulfill the rest of the UCI calendar without further Covid-19 issues postponing more races?

Yes No
25.3% 74.7%
Sorry to you 25%, Amstel, Roubaix & a bunch of other races have falled foul of COVID-19 related cancellations.

22. When did you become aware of Alexander Foliforov?

When %
Before the 2016 Giro 3,25%
22nd May, 2016 15,55%
On /pelotonmemes in 2020 21,13%
Who? 60,07%
If you didn't know of the man, watching him demolish the Giro field in 2016 on the stage 15 ITT should help to gain understanding

23. Who will win the 2020 Tour de France?

Rider %
Roglic 52,12%
Bernal 16,57%
Pinot 9,24%
Dumoulin 7,9%
N.Quintana 2,82%
Pogacar 1,41%
Richie Porte 0,35%
We can safely say that most of us were wrong about this one.
That's not a lot of confidence in Richie Porte either, the man who was to finish on the third spot of the podium. Alexander Foliforov (0,23%) had just a tiny number of votes less, and that man wasn't even in the race.

24. What for you was the defining cycling moment of the previous decade?

We had a lot of brilliant suggestions, but these were the clear five favourites when we tabulated the results.
Honorable mentions go to the Giro 2018, which had Tom Dumoulin winning, and of almost identical fascination to many of you - Tom Dumoulin going on someones porta-potty in the middle of the stage.
Little bit of recency bias perhaps, but that's better than ignoring that this was for the last decade and firmly insisting Tom Boonens 2005 WC win was the biggest thing. Special shoutout to almost all the Danes present in /peloton who voted for Mads Pedersens WC win last year. It's an understandable reaction.

25. Any suggestions for the Survey?

New Questions
We promise to feature one of these suggestions in the next survey
Suggestions
We will try to implement this. But it will also skew results.
About the Survey
The subscribers are torn on Women's cycling, nearly a 50/50 split there as the survey showed - The moderators at /peloton are firmly in the "more cycling is better" basket, and we will continue to get as good coverage of womens cycling as possible.
Are you trying to give the moderators PTSD? Because this is how you give the moderators PTSD.

26. Any suggestions for the sub?

ALSJFLKAJSLDKJAØLSJKD:M:CSAM)=#/()=#=/")¤=/)! - Your moderator seems to be out of function. Please stand by while we find you a new moderator
The Weekly threads are great for these types of questions, where several people can contribute and build up once it is understood which information is relevant.
Our experience is that "limited" will never be so, if we're going to moderate it fairly. Moderating is not a popularity contest, but believe it or not, we're actually trying to be as fair as possible. and for that, we need rules that are not subjective. Unless you have a stationary exercise bike.
All of these are good suggestions, but remember that all of you can also contribute - The mods are sometimes stretched thin, specially in the middle of hectic race schedules. It's easier if one of you has a way to contact a rider or a person of interest and can facilitate the initial communication.
We've worked on this! The Official Standard is now as follows: [Race Thread] 202x Race Name – Stage X (Class)
This sounds as a nice community project for the after-season, and hopefully many of you subscribers can contribute.
Come with suggestions on how to tidy it up!
We have chastised all the mods. They are now perfectly trained in gender-neutral pronouns. Be well, fellow being.
If we can implement this for hard liquor, you know we will.
The spoiler rule is one that is discussed frequently - in general - some users absolutely hate it, but a majority love it. Perhaps we'll include a question in the next survey to see how this divide is exactly.
We actually do - whenever there is a matter of life or death, we think public information is more important than a spoiler rule. But at the same time, we try to collect all the different posts into one main thread, so to keep things focused and letting very speculative posts meet with hard evidence from other sources.
This is a tough ask of the internet. While we can agree that voting should be done accordingly to what insights they bring, not subjective opinions, it is very hard to turn that type of thinking around. We can ask of you, our subscribers, that you please think twice about hitting that downvote button, and only do so because of you think a post is factually incorrect, not because it differs with your own subjective opinion.
That's the primary analysis of the survey! Feel free to contribute with how you experience things here!

MAME 0.209

MAME 0.209

With another month over, it’s time for another release, and MAME 0.209 is sure to have something to interest everyone. We’ve cracked the encryption on the Fun World CPU blocks, making Fun World Quiz, Joker Card, Mega Card, Power Card, Multi Win, Saloon and Nevada playable. Regular contributor shattered has added Кузьмич-Егорыч (Kuzmich-Egorych), a Russian Mario Brothers bootleg running on heavily modified Apple II hardware. In other Apple II news, CD-ROM drives now work with the Apple II SCSI card, and another batch of cleanly cracked floppies has been added to the software list. The NES SimCity prototype has been added to the software list, along with MMC5 improvements to support it, and better emulation for Famicom cartridges with on-board sound chips.
Henrik Algestam has continued his Game & Watch work, bringing Popeye (wide screen) and Zelda to MAME. Chess computer support has been expanded with Fidelity Chess Challenger 3, and additional versions of Applied Concepts Boris, and Novag Super Expert and Super Forte. Newly supported arcade games include Akka Arrh (an Atari title that failed location testing), Little Casino II, a French version of Empire City: 1931, and additional versions of Dock Man and Street Heat. A better LM3900 op-amp model means Money Money and Jack Rabbit are no longer missing the cassa (bass drum) channel, and mixing between music and speech is improved.
Bug fixes include the Rockwell AIM 65 being returned to working order, working support for multiple light guns on Linux from Kiall, corrected screen freeze behaviour on Deniam hardware from cam900, and better flashing characters on the Sinclair QL from vilcans. You can get the source and Windows binary packages from the download page.

2018 /r/Peloton Spring Demographics Survey Results

Here we are with some results! The survey was left open for nine days, and don't worry if you missed out, we'll run it again just after the Tour in the more usual survey position in order to gather the maximum number of responses. Although we can see that there were over 1000 unique viewers to the thread, with only 630 responses. Better off next time!

What can we see? First off, despite Americans forming the largest contingent they seem decidedly less keen to watch the spring classics. Meanwhile, the hosts of the classics, Belgium & The Netherlands, see jumps in userbase indicative of the fact this is the part of the season they really want to watch. Elsewhere, the top 15 is broadly formed of the same nations as ever, with Ireland and Sweden jumping up this time.

At this point a reasonable image is emerging, that of a more broadly European base who have been watching cycling for a little bit longer. Still as ever on Reddit 20-25 dominates, but under 20 dips under 10% whilst over 30 is 31%, nearly a third of users who falling outside that classic twenties bracket.

One day races are slightly more popular than stage races, the finale of last year's captivating eighth stage of Paris-Nice reached a paltry 155 comments in the race thread, whilst last years Omloop race thread got to 557 comments.
There's a dip too once you move away from WT to no-WT, the sometimes tricky nature of viewing, generally poorer startlists and less hype leading to the watching population cut in half. Though for just over a third of us, it doesn't matter if the coverage is in Argentinian and ovverun by dance tracks, if it's on we'll watch it.

How long have you been watching Cycling?

Time (years) < a year 1 -2 2 - 3 3 - 4 4 - 5 5 - 6 7 -8 8 - 9 9 - 10 10 - 11 11 - 12 12 -13 13 - 14 14 - 15 15 - 20 20 - 25 25 +
Pecentage (%) 4 10.5 12.6 9.6 8.1 8.9 6.9 4.8 6.2 6.2 2.2 1.8 0.8 4.5 10.7 4.9 3.5
From this there's a couple of conclusions we can draw. Just over a quarter (27.1%) have picked up cycling in the last three years, or in the aftermath of Nibali's Tour win. 44.8% of us have started watching since Froome first won in 2013, and just over a third of us have been watching longer than the current decade, although nearly one in five (19.1%) remember watching Pantani live.
Although oddly enough almost no one picked it up in 2004/5.

Section 2

Which teams do you like or not like?

This one is sorted by karma, which is simply the number of likes minus the number of dislikes. The 2015 answers come first and are highlighted with 2015, then the 2016 answers with 2016 and then the answers from this survey are highlight with 2018. Hopefully this will give a feel of the changing image of some of the teams in the peloton.
Team Like2015 Dislike2015 Karma2015 Like2016 Dislike2016 Karma2016 Like2018 Dislike2018 Karma2018
AG2R La Mondiale 15 8 7 160 36 124 344 41 303

UAE-Team Emirates (nee-Lampre-Merida) 8 28 -20 43 71 -28 112 237 -125
Here's a chart, plus a normalised version based on the relative number of voters (thanks vogelpoep for pointing out non normalised data is useless) which will probably make it easier to see what has changed over the years, using the three letter team codes for identification.
The presence of the triple world champion Peter Sagan boosts Bora above Michelton-Scott into first, who are probably suffering because no one is currently shoving cameras in their riders faces and putting it on YouTube. Elsewhere, Quick-Step are only just short of winning another thing and Sunweb ride the Dumoulin train to third.
At the other end of the scales, Katusha narrowly slip into the negatives, though it's been a few years since they were the bogeymen of the sport. Next on the evil list is Astana, although they've stopped having riders banned since that since that positively entertaining autumn of 2014 which seems to be slowly fading out of people's memory. After Astana it's the teams with the Middle-Eastern oil oligarchy routes, UAE & Bahrain, and then the winner of the previous two Grand Tours, the most /peloton clickbait articles and the worst zero tolerance policy known to man, Sky, are the least liked team of them all.

Do you ride a bike regularly?

Answer 2016 2018
For fun 25% 61.5%
For fitness 25,6% 59.3%
For commuting 18% 46%
For racing 16,5% 20.6%
No, I don't 12,4% 14.2%
A healthy number of us are racers, and nearly as many of us wouldn't dream of swinging two legs over the darn thing. A change to checkboxes this time over multiple choice explains the percentage change.

Is Cycling your favourite sport?

2015 2016 2018
No 40,7% 34,7% 30.6%
Yes 59,3% 65,3% 69.4%
That spring audience shines through once more in their combined adulation of cycling.

Both the Euro & American versions of football dominate, although it's fair to say Cyclocross & Track Cycling both get a decent following too. Otherwise, a significant jump in popularity for Esports over the past two years is the noticeable change in the tables.

Section 3

How often do you participate in a /Peloton Race Thread whilst watching a race? 2015 2016 2018
I always participate in Race Threads during races 2,8% 2% 2.2%
I follow Race Threads during races 41,7% 36,7% 38.1%
I often participate in Race Threads during races 16,8% 19% 16.5
I rarely/never participate in Race Threads during races 38,7% 41,25% 43.1%
We get it, not everyone wants to be the only commenter on GP Industria & Artigianato. It's a tough old job sometimes. You did miss talking about Mohoric doing his pedalling on the top tube mind.

How do you watch races?

Type Votes (%)
Pirate Streams 62%
Local TV 55.7%
Desperately scrabbling for Youtube highlights 37.9%
Paid Streaming services 32.3%
Eurosport might cover more options than ever (except in Germany, sorry Germans), but pirate streaming is still the way to go for a lot of our subs, although some fan favourites have been lost over the past couple of years like cyclinghub & procyclinglive, it still has traction through Tiz, Steephill & even on Youtube.

Sporza 1.89%
Instagram 0.69%
Steephill 0.52%
This one was initally above the other question so there were a few answers of TV before it was edited for clarity. Otherwise, there were shoutouts to /cyc/, Direct Velo, some non-cycling specific forums and even one soul manning the /peloton IRC.

Where do you stand on race motos?

Answer Votes (%)
Reduce the number for rider safety 45.1
The number is okay but driver training must be improved 52.4
Behind the driver with a camera on your shoulder 10.8
Salient once again this past weekend at Strade Bianche were the race motos. Some conflicting thoughts on them as ever, and there's a couple of ideas on what form of change is needed. Although as pointed out in the other answers some people think it's fine and one individual really wishes Arsenal would fire Wenger already. Some of the other answers were:
Drones More motos for more images Organisers live moto coverage only within the peloton, Police motos to pass peloton with assistance Get rid of press & VIP motos, try to make them electrically powered Stop allowing riders to draft 

Is Carlton Kirby?

Answer Votes (%)
Joy for cycling fans globally? 33.1
Worse than nails on a chalkboard 16.2
I don't watch Eurosport UK & don't care 50.8
For the poor souls who don't get Renaat/local equivalent and are forced to listen to Eurosport Kirby is a fact of life. A welcome one on average it seems.

The season starts?

Answer Votes (%)
When the break summits the Leberg to start the climbing in Omloop Het Nieuwsblad 55.9
In January 44.1
And finally, /peloton has decided the season properly starts at Omloop, not in places where it's so hot people moan about it to reporters. Although one kind soul pointed out that in actual fact:
The season starts when the first riders hits the first cobbles on Haaghoek, prior to Leberg.
And that's that. Thank you for all your survey suggestions, including the option to add "meh" to the like/dislike team column, which will be implemented next time, as well as probably having a slightly more slidey scale of love -> hate with like & dislike in there too. That person who has especially neutral feelings on Trek-Segafredo will be rewarded. Plus by the time we roll around to post-Tour it'll be high time to add a "When does the season end?" question in.
And thank you too for the sub feedback, which once again included "WENGER OUT" among the list of responses. We'll work on that one ASAP.
