Ala Cippo?

I am chuffed to bits to see Big Phil win it, I love him as a rider, its a shame he has had a mixed season really, massivly dissapointing when you place it next to last season, but it proves IMO the guy is human.

I hope he has a good one next season.

A rainbow win in Lombardia?

Yes, great win. At least we should have a very visible Rainbow jersey now, only for people to complain that he doesn't feature in bunch sprints.

I don't think this thread should be merged either, because as afrank put it the others were a lot different.

it was a great win and he truly is an awesome rider.

I believe that the rainbow jersey will be very visible next year, at least providing great show.

In 2010, he was on pair with Cadel Evans. Each on turn attacked.
In 2011, he excelled on the last hill, but couldn't keep it to the finish line.
In 2012, justice was done.

Love watching Phil ride, that acceleration boom and he's gone. The best riders in the peloton left trailining in his wake.

Such panache.

Gonna stop gushing now!!

Yes the were appreciation and depreciation threads before being turned to discussion. Personally I prefer the discussion threads.

Of course. Anything else would be silly.

Perfect race by Gilbert... although now he might be too expensive to put on my fantasy team.
