The commentator asking if its ever been done before in the history of cycling that a rider escapes at the gun and wins.

I only say that because you put on a big speech about JvdB being ahead of those south americans today. I was never mixed up in that entire discussion, I just find it hilarious that a day later he loses to them, after you having that whole discussion with ryo.

But you don't get that Pisti, do you? You're trapped in your own mind
Uh, actually he's still fourth in GC. With only 2 South Americans ahead of him.

I actually always said it's just January and that the European climbers are just using this as a prep race while the South-Americans are peaking for this. Like I said earlier, his shape is around the same as the Volta ao Algarve last year. As it should be. Come the Tour de France, we won't see any South-Americans.

I'm just mocking you guys because you said VDB2 wouldn't do anything here because he doesn't race outside July. Well, I answered that question for you with another question.

He's the only one that could yes.

Problem with him: domestique for Valverde. Ain't he doing the Vuelta anyway?
