If sky do 1-2 at the tour again this year, I will stop following this race until this team disappear.


From all I have seen I have to sadly say its a 1-2 for sky. AC just doesn't have it, fans like moi thought maybe he was posturing or doing a rope-a-dop boxing style, but as the season progresses its more evident he ain't got it. Besides anyone who knows AC knows he is a cannibal for victory, if he smells it, he will eat it.

I will lightly follow TDF this year...with some little hope of a surprise...not from AC but a Sky implosion...

Sky won't go 1-2, they may win, but no way they take the first 2 podium spots.

For that, the majority of the field will have to crash out.

I was too young to remember that but yea i know the 'look' happened. From the races that i've watched i've never seen someone as dominant as Basso giro '06. Clinic or not that form was so ****ing ridiculous, he would have destroyed armstrong with that form (i think)

One time I was playing PCM.. I changed the data base of the game and put all my riders at 99 in all the skills! It was like sky did in Criterium.. the rides just got away from the peloton like Porte and Froome did.. it is not normal.

There is no hope.............. only bad luck can stop this team... sad but true.

He would not the W/kg Armstrong put out in the mountains where at least as high as Basso's in 06. Also Lance would own him in the TT hard.

Agree though Basso in 06 was amazing :D

Back on topic: I though Contador looked fairly good in the Dauphine, will def be ready for the tour. Anyone knows if Riis will be in the car?

I think there was news a while ago that Riis wouldn't be around a lot

The highest you can put your skills on in PCM is 85

Hahahaha yep, and still Vroome hasn't proved he deserves the 85. Might change after the Tour.

I remember the good old days when Thomas Dekker or EBH had the potential to get almost on each aspect 85. Now that was awesome :cool:

the skills stop working at 85, but you can get it up to 99 I think (training camps and so on, atleast it was like that in earlier games)
