Whose comments? I didn't quote anybody, that was pure speculation on my part, take it or leave it.

Understood, anything you say from now on can only be ignored.

Maybe you should reread her post you reacted to... you're not making sense.

Maybe she should stop speculating, and learn how to convey information properly to avoid misunderstandings. Obviously, I wasn't the only one who thought the same thing. (see Dazed and Confused's comment).

PS: Parrulo I'm still waiting for your belated apology. I'm sitting.

What are you talking about? She wasn't trying to convey any new information, she was just giving her opinion. Plus most of this thread is speculation.

Well, from my side the only thing disappointing is the lack of Gesink actually trash taking a couple of other riders. Would have started the season on the right note.

Sanchez will liven things up and I'm looking forward to watching him, but I don't see him on the podium somehow this year.
I think Nibali is better overall than Gesink, he has more experience at GT's as well. Considering Gesink has never podiumed at a GT and is only 2 years younger than Nibali, there really isn't too much at this stage that suggest Gesink will have a better Giro than Nibali.

Of course, we'll get a clearer indication once the season starts, but for now I think it's a big call to say that Gesink is more likely to win than Nibali.

When they went head to head in Tirreno, Pais Vasco, Dauphiné, Gesink beat Nibali every time... and not because Nibali had bad form or something. But yeah, it's hard to argue against Nibali being the better GT rider, although luck certainly hasn't been on Gesink's side.

She used a full stop, where you read a colon. That's it. Maybe you need to learn how to read propery to avoid misunderstandings
