So called is a sanctimony, myth, absurdity. At first 'luck' was attached to Wiggins and Froome. Now it is being done with Nibali. The mind boggles.

I don't like this rider so his results are achieved because of luck!

I clearly recall Gesink riding for Menchov on the Tourmalet stage. I'm almost certain of it. I would think there are others during that year's Tour.

yes when menchov dropped(hilarious rabo tactics I remember). that was the only stage, he finished with menchov together but I doubt he could've gone any harder. that was all he ever did for menchov that tour. I'm quite certain of. that's why he managed to finish 6th as well.
