Yes, but only if moscon would be on the other team. In that case you could physically beat him.

What is really wrong with hate for a Sky rider? I've liked Bernal a lot before he joined them, and now he is an enemy and very very dangereous one.
There is always hate in the world, u can't deny that simple fact. It's one of the main driving force of everything. Nothing wrong with that.

I liked this post. why? because it´s a perfect example of what drives me to cheer for SKY like mad. every win, every echelon, every second, every race won by them are special.
I have to thank the haters, I would enjoy less without them.

To put things into perspective, Jose Rujano has been national TT champ of Venezuela as well!

When I woke up and saw the yellow jersey that I had left by my bed the night before, I asked myself: "what are you doing in Merckx's bedroom?" I couldn't believe it - Bernard Thevenet

Hating a person because he rides for a certain team, is a bit the same like hating a person just because he comes from country X. It's not really what we need in this world. You can dislike a team ofc (though I prefer people liking other teams instead of disliking certain teams), but hating a rider because he rides for them is sad in my opinion.

Anyway great ride by Bernal, with a very high average :), looking forward to the road race though Bernal might be working for Henao there.

The thing is: like in Football, some people have a profound hatred for a team. Player A could be playing for Barcelona and you could be his biggest fan, but one day Player A goes to Real Madrid, a team you loathe with a passion. Therefore Player A is now your enemy. In Football you're not loyal to a player but to a team. I don't see the problem with disliking Bernal because he switched teams. I like QS a lot, I disliked Cavendish but when he rode for QS I found myself cheering for him. Just things that happen.

Wow, how hilly was the time trial? Pretty great performance nonetheless. I also hope he wins the RR.

It was 99% flat and designed for specialists like Mendoza, Contreras and Vargas.

You said yourself that you used to like him. Suddenly disliking someone simply because of what team they ride on is pretty silly.

Of course. I also find disliking a player because they switched teams rather silly.
Though I generally find disliking teams in any sport silly.
