Why does Samu style his hair as if he were a mischievous 12-year-old.

I wish he had the jersey zipped up. It would have been so epic if, he turned around to look at his competition, zipped the jersey, than gave the peace sign.

Granted the race conditions didn't allow him the time for the zip-up, so there's no doubt in my mind he would have done so if time had been allotted for it.

The more important question is, who whill he lose a sprint to this year's Tour? Is it Bradley Wiggins? Kloden? Leipheimer?

Or will he get outdescended by Moncoutie at the descend of the Tourmalet?

All these questions will be answered in the next episode of the Tour. On your tv in July.



And what crackpot battles will El Pistrollero be fighting against the forum.

Will it be that BMC is now a Belgian team? Will it be that Fabian Cancellara is overated.

Or maybe well get 3 pages of back and forth about how its an insult to call Ullrich Der Kaiser because Kaiser Willhelm II had to abdicate in 1917.

This is about Samu, stick to the topic!

Actually I asked very legit questions if you watched him race this season. Although I'm sure he'll be on his A-Game and not let Kloden humiliate him again :p

Wow. Nicely done. Nicely done. Maybe im beginning to underestimate you.

Well played;)


Edit: Ah but you couldnt stop there;)

Yes you did. But since im trying out superfanboy mode, i am required to go for the personal as a defense mechanism.

And if you read your posts this season, the questions i asked were ALSO very legit ;)

reckon he'll be well in the mix - especially with an under-form schlecklet and knackered AC
can't see why he won't podium

He always reminds me of those types dwelling in Shoreditch circa 1998/9, the ones with the menial IT support jobs. I wonder if he's ever been to the Mother Bar.

Man without hinting at the clinic, if they were to have a properly mountainous WC course, the Spanish would have it stitched up like a kipper, so to speak. (Is that the right figure of speech?)

Just looking at all the photos of Samu grinning with Bert and Valverde.

There are plenty of reasons to love Samu - this is one of them:

HE is a fun rider to watch, great descender, solid TTist, but there is something about him that I don`t like, besides the fact he is Spanish. I don`t know what, but can`t make myself to cheer for him. Anyway I hope JVDB will finish in front of him for the (last) podium spot.

Hitch,

Nice job with the Fanboy mode. But, you seem to have made the same mistake that everyone makes when naming Sammy's team. It is "Euskaltel" not "Euskatel".

Too much information.

Hitch,
It's good to see you channeling your inner-Giro in yet another legendary OP. ;)

But you seem to have overlooked one:

CVV http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=12027 :D

Say what you will, but on this quote alone I would think it would qualify:
Samuel Sanchez, he could win too (but he’s one of my favorite riders, so I’ll just leave it at that...)


I only have this to add:

Come July, the Schleck sisters will be no match for these "brothers."

Samu will be out of contention by the 1st week. Euskaltel will be back looking for breakaway wins.

If Samu wins the tour ill soil myself and soil Moose as well. :D

It might be my fanboy within speaking, but i really consider him top favorite for 3rd place.

I just hope Euskaltel's idiotic positioning tactics dont screw him over yet again.

Id like him to skip the tour next year though, target Vuelta and get that coveted GT win, because i think its well within his grasp.
