How Do You Pronounce that?
Mispronouncing someone's name is plain disrespectful.
The "Name That Cyclist" project is an ongoing initiative to help people with the pronunciation of "foreign" riders' and race names. All sound bites are by native speakers. Thanks to all of them.*
We are looking for native speakers to help us out. Looking for French (France and Belgium), Spanish (Spain), Italian, Euskara, Catalan, and whatever else. Let us know.
