Ill never understand why people like Nicolas Roche, Roman Kreuziger and Haimar Zubeldia. Have them attacked any time in his lifes?

Liking or disliking doesn't have to be logical - doesn't always have to be about hard work or exciting attacks. Maybe they were nice to you when you got an autograph, maybe you hate their haircut, maybe they're from your home town. Could be a million and one reasons unrelated to cycling itself.

Though having said that I'm intrigued why someone would pick Kevin Seeldraeyers ?

For many, Zubeldia embodies times when they started following the sport. 03-04 I think. For me personally it was one of 4-5 first riders I remembered. Yes, he attacked

Any gloryhunter with weak unarticulated nervous system can root for Contador or Gilbert. So try to support Zubeldia or somebody like him More precisely, it is for subtle [i'm not saying about myself] cycling judges.

I was hoping that he and Mayo would be able to end Armstrong's reign of terror, or at least put a scare into him, based on their Tour performance in 2003. He's a steady rider that flies under the radar and a good mountain domestique....and drama free.
