Parrulo, people would get warned for posting Clenbutador, Dopestrong etc. but Piti is somehow fine?
...[Walsh] thinks we're ahead of the curve. But think about it for a sec. We're building long-lasting, trusting relationships with people who are spending a lot of money - Coke, Nike, Subaru. If we're f***ing lying, we can kiss it all goodbye. And if we were lying we'd do some stupid stuff to try to cover it up, wouldn't we? Does anybody think for a second that a secret that big wouldn't come out? Bill Stapleton

those names are much more blunt and direct to the subject then piti also piti has been used by valverde fans for years on this forum now with no relation to puerto, cineteq just complained about it because i said it and he doesn't lose a chance to have a go at trolling me ever since he got banned for trolling a couple months ago.

many posters on this very thread have said the same thing. the difference seems very obvious to me.

If people don't know about Operacion Puerto then the won't get the nick name anyway. Those are different. Plus "Clenbutador" is 'forced' and annoying.

Really? How come I don't see any friends calling him like that. If you want to justify it that way be my guest, I think it's pure BS on your part. In the end, if the other admins allow you and other members to do that, it's nothing I can do. IMO the name Piti is pure disrespect to Alejandro.

Who, a friend? Btw, how can I troll you again, if I never trolled you? If anything, I've called you out many times, let's be clear there.

I doubt Valverde would appreciate being called piti, do you? Or would he see the "warm, loving" side of it?

I don't know, is he?

You're being facetious. Do you reckon any of Valverde's friends call him piti as a pet name? Or do you think he'd take it as well as Basso takes being called Birrilo?

I used to like better Paris-Nice, but the last two years I like better Tirreno-Adriatico. :)

I generally prefer Tirreno so I might be a bit bias, but this year Tirreno should be super given the names of big riders that are going to participate. I already know which one I'm going to watch, I hope the route is going to be worthy. My guess is time trial the last day same as last year, basically I'm expecting a very similar route as last year.

A ttt at the beginning, a tt at the end, a "real mountain stage with a steep ascent of 12 km", two for sprinters, two for classics' hunters. That's formula of this year's TA.
I hoped for a tt in the middle and conclusion with "real mountain stage".
Good to see organizers aware of (and thrilled with) the field announced for their race and fans' expectations.
Promises a good race.
