Tony Martin Bandwagon thread

02 Jun 2011 13:47

As their have been complaints about Tony Martin highjacking too many threads, i decided to create this bandwagon thread.
So here supporters of Tony can celebrate his victories, discuss news and certain issues about him, chear for him and so on without dirsturbing other posters.
So feel free to join the Bandwaggon if you are supporting the Panzerwagen, the new Kaiser, Big Tony, the Diesel, Ullrich 2.0, Tourgott 3, ...:D
Give it up for Tony!:D

Beat Spartacus in the time trial.

Outclimb borderline top10 hopefuls.

Finish 8th.

Lookout Cav!

Btw will Martin actually be leader (ahead of Velits?)

Depends on the track. If its a point a to point B track with some hills yes. If it's a city curcuit with many corners (like zthis year again) no

I remember Timmy;)

no no.

I said he was close, never said he would beat spartacus (pretty certain I didn't. I remember the discussion). Either provide quote or no egg on my face boy :p
I did say he was the clear best after canc. which he is.

I'm on the bandwagon too;)

I hope he can do the top 10 in the Tour.

By the way, If I remember right, Cancellara said he will not going in the ITT at WC because he will focus on the road race.

the 2009 tour was the ideal race for something like that to happen. with this year route? he won't break the top 20 let alone the top 10

btw in the 2009 tour tony martin got out climbed by the great climber juan manuel garate. how about that for climbing potential?

Well he outclimbed your boy van den Broeck a couple of times in 09 before he cracked cause of tiredness. No wonder he had to work for cav like 100km avery day
