I see. You would have had more fun living 30-40 years ago.

Oh lord do i hope Wiggins as a celebrity doesn't just disappear this year. They are overhyping him so much, they even think hes intelligent.

Wiggins seems to be oblivious to his own sport. It might be possible he didn't know what Contador did in San Luis, but when you're reffering to Purito as "that Spanish rider from Katusha" you really look like you've been living in a cave

You haven't noticed he's always deliberately vague about things he knows perfectly well as part of his social interaction coping mechanism?

Can't blame him. He probably only ever rode with Purito once in 2004.

Vuelta 2011 says hello. Wiggins doesn't even know the name of the #1 of the World Tour.

Isn't Purito the guy that toppled him out of the #1 spot on WT points last year? And he claims not to know who he is????

Yeah I don't know why you guys keep falling for this...who were having a fit last year when he pretended he couldn't remember Siutsou/Sivtsov's name during a press conference? That's the way he is, get used to it.

Perhaps he is just playing with J-Rods head like when
he nibbled the Shark last year. Marginal gains.
