Smile Samuel Samu Sanchez official awesomness thread.

One of the hardest TDFs in history.

Cometh the hour Cometh the man.



As expected, the approach of the Tour has flooded the home of cycling (cycling news forums) with thread upon threads making speculations ranging from as to whether the greatest cyclist of our generation can be allowed to race, will be allowed to race, should be allowed to race, to whether totally unproven tt specialists will somehow manage a top 10.

Almost every man and his dog ever mentioned for a TDF top 10 has its own thread.

Here are just a few examples.

Contador http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=14035
Basso http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=13869#
Schleck http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=14093
Martin http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=13833
Gesink http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=13775
Levi http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=14104
VDB http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=13775
Kloeden http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=12484
Evans http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=13855 (and many others)
Brajkowic http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=14073
CVV http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=12027


But there is one piece in the puzzle that is still missing.

It has been found.

I bring you the official thread of Samuel Sanchez Gonzalez.


The man who represents this thing of ours at the highest table of world sport.

The man who wears the helmet every child around the world dreams of wearing.




Some say it was passed down to him from King Arthur himself.

So loved across the galactiverse, he is instantly recognised around the world by the simple four letters.

Samu.

So here is, the man, the legend, from Oviedo Asturias Spain, riding for Euskatel Euskaudi, he weighs in at 65kg (add 3kg for the Olympic medal around his neck) and measures 175cm in height,

Samuel "Samu", "Sammy" "SamSan" "The Olympic Champion"

Sanchez

GOOOONNNN

ZALEZ!!!!






Peace!.

He laugs in the face of adversity



And cries joy when it has been broken.

Podium candidate for sure. Albeit having a quiet build-up I think he'll be up there for sure. He's a likable guy, climbs really well, and with daredevil descents as a part of his arsenal of qualities one cannot but hope he does well.
