Gesink has always been good at weeklong stage races, he just can't keep up the consistency for 3 weeks unlike Nibali.

Wrong, Gesink can't just keep up for 3 weeks. Nothing to do with consistency more with keeiping up.

Considering a cyclist must have some proper leg muscles, and muscle tissue is heavier than fat tissue, a 190 cm cyclist who weighs 70 kg will have quite some less fat compared to a 190 cm 70 kg "normal" person and therefore more skin and bones than a normal person.

yes indeed. also if you've ever seen a cyclist in person in his clothing you know how thin they are

I can't deny I was excited about the Gesink's trash talking.

Right, a colon was the issue. I was reading too fast. Kudos for not being condescending or insulting. Maybe you should be a mod.

Them pesky colons! No problem, I understand where you were coming from now.

I agree it would have been a lot more exciting if Gesink had been trash talking though.

great promo, almost all the guys that will be there next may talking about pink.

RCS needs to dig deep into their pockets and start forcing this promos ( like this one as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pmhd0jjZwWM)into main stream television channels that cover the giro.
