For many years now, people have used #trolldj to comment on the music that's played as the Tour coverage returns from each ad break. But #trollDJ is more than just a Twitter hashtag. #trollDJ plays the anthems and brings out the bangers for the #couchpeloton as thousands wile away their nights during the Tour de France.

Preferring July holed up in the dank and dark SBS basement to summer in Europe playing festivals like Tomorrowland, we here at Cycling Central don't exactly know who #trollDJ is. When we rock up for our shift each night, #trolldj's got the door locked, cutting up the music/cycling action montages we all love.

For all we know Daft Punk could be in there. #trolldj is actually playing at your house, your house. 

We always thought it was this guy. He just knew a little TOO much:

Until this tweet when we knew, even with the magic of television, it couldn't be him:

Some even thought it was this guy:

Or because of the aura of international mystery, this guy:

But #trollDJ says that's all just a little bit silly (#TrollDJ contacts us via emails, DMs and via notes under the door).

Check out #trollDJ's work so far this year:

The stuff we do know about #trolldj:

1. Is like, really popular among the #couchpeloton

The #couchpeloton is a community on Twitter who've bonded for many years over late nights watching cycling on SBS. They also talk about their food via #toursnacks and have come up with all sorts of hashtags to get through their nightly struggle. 

The #couchpeloton also know what these two songs are just from micro-second gifs:

and if they - and a host of other songs - aren't played each year, SBS will receive just as much feedback - if not more - as when Paul and Phil eventually retire. 

Some have also wanted #trolldj to appear for other networks' sporting events:

2. Uncharacteristically dropped a massive hint about having a sister who has been to France:

3. Loves doing this with the outtakes

4. Takes requests even from former pro cyclists 

But #trolldj prefers yours. Head over to Twitter with your requests via the #trollDJ hashtag.
