He's in better shape from what exactly? Smoking all the marginal gains?
I think you have me mistaken for a Wiggins fan.

Not at all, I know you're not a Wiggins fan. Doesn't mean you can't be wrong about him though.

This isn't the time of Bernard Hinault anymore where you could do nothing for a whole winter.

When you catch me posting about how he'll win the Giro and/or Tour next year, let me know.

If he doesn't win the Giro then he clearly stuffed up his preparation because with last year's form it should be a walk in the park. Unless he crashes or gets terribly sick of course.

His early season form can't possibly be any good or he's the most talented cyclist in the world. These post-season pictures of Wiggins and Froome are hilarious. So much difference.

What are you going on about?

All will10 did was say that you were wrong to speculate that Wiggins hadnt done much preperation.

And off that you project a bunch of imagined predictions on will10 and attack him for making them, when they all came from your wild imagination and notoriously poor comprehension skills.

Taking a look at his second chin says all about Wiggins preparation. Why would I be wrong about his preparation? Because you say so?

Is condescension the only type of argument you're capable of using?

I wasnt making an argument. I asked why you were totally taking out of context everything will said.

Eight pages ohhh. We can begin to discuss peace in the Middle East, but I think it is not allowed.
