Call yourself lucky that Contador is there ;)


If VDB2 wins a stage in San Luis, I will take a VDB2 avatar until VDB2 wins another race.

(I really don't want to give up my Alien avatar so I only bet on sure things ;) )
...[Walsh] thinks we're ahead of the curve. But think about it for a sec. We're building long-lasting, trusting relationships with people who are spending a lot of money - Coke, Nike, Subaru. If we're f***ing lying, we can kiss it all goodbye. And if we were lying we'd do some stupid stuff to try to cover it up, wouldn't we?

The only impressive result there is catalunya and that's before you remember that he was st as 13 others.

And dauphine but that's part of the tour thing.

I think you have to start think otherwise, how many in Quatar knows about Cav, Boonen..etc ? Or In Maylaysia, how mant knew who Guardini is etc??
