What is it called when a cyclist sits at the back of a breakaway not contributing, you know, like Leukemans did for so much of the later laps of the race.

That particular scenario was normal in-race behaviour, when a team mate is in front (something that f.i. Ricco seemingly doesn't know) - and Pozzato indeed (wheel)sucked all life out of a potential winning breakaway, everyone could see his destructive racing sunday.

The Belgians animated the race and deserved more from their effort, but that's the way the cookie crumbles sometimes when you don't have a decent finisher (or at least burn him out before the finish).

I wish we were all as perfect as you! For someone to make a comment like that indicates you are apart of the lowest common denominator of society.

only reason i hate evans is because of his attitude, and reactions to losing (never admits he was the bested by the better man). As a rider he is quality.

Cadel acts like he's in the WNBA. Whining about his team, hitting other cyclist, crying like a baby because he lost his yellow jersey.. He never seems to have a good attitude about losing.

I could not agree. 10 out of 10 he always has an excuse for mediocre performances. I also dislike his cowardly and horrible wheel-suck till you die attitude.

And he is a really ugly SOB
