Default Philippe Gilbert Discussion Thread

I think it's about time we got a Philippe Gilbert discussion thread, to discuss all things Phil. I found a couple other Gilbert threads but they were just about how he dominated 2011.


Philippe Gilbert: Winner of the Ardennes triple, 2 time winner of AGR, winner of San Sebastian, 2 time winner of Paris-Tours, 2 time winner of Giro di Lombardia. 9 total Classic wins and 16 podiums in the classics. And now...

A world champion

Congratulations to PhilGil for his world title. He deserves to wear that rainbow jersey. What a great attack on the Cauberg!

Amazing win. One of the greatest rider of his generation.
I hope he won't f*ck up again in winter.

Looking at that picture of him with the medal probably makes me more happy than if anyone else had won. Of course he had to wear the rainbow jersey at some point in his career. He truly deserves it.

Great win for a great rider. Chapeau Philippe!

I dont like Gilbert in the slightest. No denying that he was the strongest yesterday though, was a class above.
