I hate this thread considering I like both riders. Quintana's win today was amazing and unexpected. Pinot is still the only one to have performed consistenty in a GT. It remains to be seen who will be better later in their careers.

Damn, the referee needs to end this right now. This has gone way past embarrassing.

Now that the Forums are back- I got to get this off my chest:

What the fvck is wrong with Pinot being fvck!ng afraid of descents??
What the Fvck Pinot?? You was on my list of new favorite riders & then you pull this load of ssh!t so shamefully/remorselessly/without impunity????

You turning into the French Andy Schleck?????

What the Fvckkk!!!!!
Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?
