That is some pretty advanced mind reading you're doing. Impressive.

So? Does that make Wiggins's season impressive? we already know he can time trial.

a)Knowing something and actually seeing it are two totally different things.
b)Just because Wiggins is already a good TT doesnt mean it isnt impressive, it is like saying Gilbert's Ardennes wins arent impressive because he is a good hill rider.

I'm just saying that just because he won those races doesn't mean he was impressive. Far from that.

Atrocious.

Of course, just act as if the greatest performance in a GT in the last 5 years didn't happen.

I think we can now safely say that Andy is the best stage racer of this generation.

Ik zie deze ceremonie als een beloning voor mijn sterke Giro, na een Contador die nog grootser was'

Nobody cares about this paper Giro win, Contador will have always won this one. Perhaps not the 2010 Tour, but definitely this Giro.

I agree. Reminds me of the whole Boonen PR over weak rider>>>> Cancellara PR over strong ones argument, because Cancellara is a tter whereas Boonen is just a cobbled rider, which is of couse, no good in a tt race like PR.

He has won both. Everyone knows this, only haters choose to believe otherwise.

Edvald Boasson Hagen has finally ended his cooperation with his former personal trainer, Fredrik Mohn. A goldsmith with no real connections to cycling doesn't exactly sound like an ideal fit for a talent like Edvald, so Sky has finally forced him to get one of their trainers instead after a disappointing classic's season. It is not yet known who will be his new trainer, but I'm definitely hoping for Julich!
