Here's a nice example of a warm-up race in February(hey if you're counting Strade Bianche...)
And I must have imagined seeing Boonen train hard for the WC this year. I bet he was just pretending, that sly dog!Nothing wrong with a little discussion, so why do you feel the need to quit? I'm not insulting you personally, so relax. I just disagree with what you say. When you think Cancellara is better than Boonen I can accept that opinion, but when you say Boonen is nothing but a cobbled classic rider I'll strongly disagree with you. He was injured for most of 2010-2011, just like Cancellara was this year..
I am strongly contradicting myself here, but I can ask you the opposite question: why do you feel the need to persist?
Why must I provide every nook and cranny to my opinion until I have exhausted it of any relevance?
It, my opinion, may be incorrect in your eyes, but so what? I live every day comfortable in the knowledge that I believe Boonen is less of a rider than Cancellara, and I have not suffered for it.
I have not been struck down by lightning bolts from an angry pro-Boonen Zeus, nor has my social status been in some way impinged by viewing Tomke with a furrowed brow and shaken fist. The hands of fate have not crushed me yet for my somewhat malignant anti-Boonen view and I do not think you are in a position to inform me that the winds of fate will soon change if I don't come over to the 'dark side'.
Not even if Nietzsche's Zarathustra, after spending those god awful years atop that mountain alone with no tv or Weekly World News to console him, were to descend from that lonesome hermitage to pronounce to the world 'It is Boonen, my friends, Boonen alone who shall lead the meek atop the crooked and cobbled bicycle path' even I would not believe him.
For I decree, and with a thousand trumpets blazing, "Cancellara till I die!!!!!!"
