This, obviously he was the strongest and obviously he deserves the jersey. Just... I need to learn to care less

It's just the way he comes across. Funnily enough I hated him at the start of 2011, then I actually started liking him but now I hate him again (of course I don't really hate him, hate is a strong word)

This is cycling. There ain't no hate.

Watch football instead.

Good to know it's not because he's belge.

That's the bad side of it.

He's riding Piemonte on Thursday maybe he'll honour the Rainbow Jersey with a win.
I am also hopeful that he can win either MSR or Ronde next year.

I am sure he'll focus on these two next. at least he can come close to his ambition of winning all five Monuments.

That's why I said it's not really hate. By the way I can't think of someone I really, truly hate. For me "dislike" and "like" just sounds too neutral
