sometimes i think at the huge amounts of cycling madness entertainment we lost with all these stupid bans. it's almost a crime what they did to the viewers.
So if I understand right, this statement "Let's have entertainment at all cost, anything goes" is what you meant?

Dude should learn to ride up a hill before saying anything. How does he make cycling entertaining? Boring dude who can't do anything but sprint. Yea he has a point but he ain't gonna make cycling entertaining. Only more boring.

How does he care for the sake of cycling when he drops at a hill of 2%? And then random people see his paycheck. What a great rides he must be are they prob thinking

He actually benefits from all this. 98% of the people who watch the tour watch it only for GC. But obviously you need some flat stages. Without the GC riders almost nobody would ****ing watch it. It's because of the likes of Contador that Kittel has such a hugh paycheck. STFU dude

Contador at 70 will still be a better climber than him. And i'm not trolling here, real talk.

So you can only comment on serious matters in your sport if your a Contador-like attacking rider, give me a break . This issue isn't about making sure cycling is entertaining, it's about making sure it is a fair and equal sport. No matter how much entertainment a rider provides, it doesn't excuse them from any wrongdoing.

And by the way, This is coming from someone who doesn't think Contador should have been banned.

I think his comment there is a good reply to the attitude that riders should be excused from any wrongdoing as long as they provide us with exciting races.
