Yes you are saying that you are saying that in this post even.
The argument is about whether riders coming from different sports have later improvements.
I used Evans as an example of a rider who comes from another sport and improves into his 30's.
And yet you are insisting that we cant use Evans because he is better.
So even if you were merely using the "Evans almost won the giro" comment to show off that you watched the race or whatever, in the context of the actual discussion , your insistence that Evans cannot be used as a comparison because he is better comes acrross as making the point that weaker riders dont improve.
Because you are introducing the variable of "ability" into the question.
Either way, if you really do believe that Thomas cant follow the same improvement pattern as Evans because he isnt as good a rider, then take a look at wiggins.
