It's funny, to the point that one wonders if it's an inside-joke between the two of them, at this point.
Is this match-up on Ladbroke's or PaddyPower yet?
The 'motor-doping' is a touchy subject for Cancellara, but it was more likely his manager that started the public sparring.

That's nice to see the two retirees settling the 'grudge' in a good-mannered way, for entertainment purposes.
These Cancellara mini-races are like 15-kilometer hill climbs, and if Gaimon gets to pick his preferred race venue, then you have to like Gaimon's chances. His power profile and recent training will make it tough on Cancellara.

So then, supposing Gaimon wins, what would be 'proved' by this ?


That Spartacus used a motor back in the day. Obviously ;)

This is the dumbest thing that has happened in pro cycling in a long while, and that says a lot.

Sagan's body tattoo was pretty bad.
But yeah, there is not much dignity remaining in this.
Gaimon's freak-show personality is insufferable, I don't think I could deal with having someone like that as a teammate

Oh yes. You need to go and have a look for it. I can't do its awfulness justice with words.

Yes, photos of the new Sagan body-tattoo can be seen online already, on various websites
It's a self-portrait of Peter Sagan, as split-personality: "The Joker / Jesus Christ"
Since this thread was about Cancellara, I'll leave the description of Peter's artwork at that now

Sagan's tattoo? Huh.

ohhhhh - I shouldn't have Googled that...

Yeah, the Gaimon/Cancellara thing is really childish. As in playground level dumb. As far as cycling and dignity go, I still have flashbacks of Rock Racing rolling up to the start line. Nothing says class like paying women to dress in tight jeans, heels and dark shades to stand around a bunch of cyclists.
