Black cat does, because if you followed the conversation, LS was mentioned as, " I have noted he is quite the man to go to in these matters".

It seems entirely reasonable - given it's been revealed by LS - to then let the poster know that LS is in fact not a man, to avoid embarrassment and potential insult to both.

i was not insulting Libertine Seguros. I admire the poster's recall and memory of cycling esoterica from the last decade. i would suggest no one on the board has the ability to pull out facts on obscure riders and races and especially neo-pro and espoirs from that last decade. So I give props to the poster.

and you are right, none of my business, and it does not make one iota difference either way. But like Dear Wiggo was saying, i was just clarifying things potentially.

we cool?

oh yeah, and my knowledge and recall was second to none before i gave up on the sport about 6 years back. now, not so good

Some classic Dawg & Porte show right here: http://youtu.be/JhPTlU99IyI

Dawg not even out of breath, starts up a conversation with Porte, all whilst climbing a mountain and dropping the entire field.

Cleans.

I'm not a native english speaker: are there 7 syllabes?

1 they're
2 dropped
3 they're
4 dropped
5 all
6 of
7 them

in italian it would be more difficult

si so no stac ca ti
si so no stac ca ti
tut ti

14 syllabes


I agree with you they're doped, but that wasn't a conversation ;)

I'm calling both they're (they-Er) and dropped (drop-T) as two syllables. In which case it's nearly a haiku.

They're dropped
They have been dropped
All of them

Just like Lance chatting to Wiggo on the climbs. Dawg has the ability to start up a conversation with Porte. That stage is even more ridiculous when I watch now in hindsight. I'd say Porte was worse than Froome that day. He Clinic broke that day for the rest of the Tour :mad:

Looks more like a statement than a conversation. Plus with the tailwind they had that day no way they were juiced.

6 head bobs in a 20 second video, unreal.

I think tailwind helps yes. On ventoux Dawg was chatting on the radio while climbing faster than Lance. After 200 km+ of hard racing and about 5 alien attacks that Brailsford said was not possible in the new era.
MC: I don’t think Chris fully understood that (Vinokourov) had doped.

CF: No, I knew.

MC: Not fully.

He was passing on Quintana's request to Sir David for approval so that they could get the photoshoot of the dawg winning alone at the top.

I wonder what Dawg was saying to Henderson when he was pushing him? :cool:

Or what he said to the motorbike he was hanging on to? "I've been dropped, can't climb, zig zag"

It's not a short distance. If you could climb the last 6 km of ventoux faster than Lance while chatting on the radio I don't think you would be clean either Mark. Sorry.

I am really sick of tailwind stories. Whenever dawg crushes people, there is always a hurricane aiding him while other riders don't seem to profit from these hurricanes. :rolleyes:
