So crashing a lot is imperative to being a good bike handler?
Where in gods name did you get that from?
Not being brought down by bottles in feed zone is part of being a good bike handler imo.
Christ, what did Cancellara do. You act as if ronde was some bottle gauntlet where everyone had to dodge flying bottles and Cancellara was the **** bike handler who failed when everyone else succeeded.
Was Langevelds crash also the fault of **** bike handling?
What about Flecha and Hoogie in the Tour? **** bike handlers no doubt:rolleyes:
And since you bring up Schleck, wouldn't it be fair to say that his (Frank) spectacular TdS crashes (who founded the 'Schlecks are bad bike handlers'-narrative) was due to attacking and taking risks on the descend?
Stop thinking in terms of absolutes. **** bike handlers are less likely to take risks.
That doesnt matter that they dont take risks or that top bike handlers always do.
Its pretty logical that people who take more risks are more likely to crash.

The story is beginning again, just as it did 14 years ago
