This is not a beauty contest. That line of discussion is now stopped. One user has already been given a short ban, any further comments will be dealt with accordingly.

What do you mean? Are we missing anything?

Edit: Never mind, I just saw who was suspended. I guess 'messages' were deleted.

what is so wrong?i voted wiggo too, definitely deserved it
tommeke stormed the cobbles with an iron fist
those two are untouchable
i do agree that purito did a 2011 phil in terms of length of peaking but unfortunately he did lose quite a lot of races. probably he deserves to be above alberto and sagan
