1. Start out as a triathelete then change to cycling full time
2. Crush the competition with a cocky attitude.
3. Conquer a deadly disease
4. Go back to Euroupe and dominate a French tour 7 years in a row

Use of the word spandex renders the entire list redundant as clearly it was created by an American, so regardless of the rest of the content it unfortunately cannot be adhered to. Everyone knows Americans will never be "pro". Shame really.

When was the last time a dude from Pomgolia/South of the Border was in the top 10 in the Tour? Or took a stage win?

Sorry, my Euro attitude meant I suddenly got more interested in the Giro from 1999 to about the time they announced Floyd's positive result :)

I think the MOST IMPORTANT rule is missing:

#56 or so: Valve caps are absolutely forbidden. Riding with valve caps is about the worst offence known.

Even with eight years in a row and then eight more Americans can't be "pro". There's certainly some who follow the code of conduct pretty well but still...no...

And...Sidi shoes are for "Forza Italia" guys.
