i am pretty much indifferent to the colombians, no dislike but so far they haven't done anything that caused a sparkle in me.

i forgot about kiri tho, but i only voted for riders i actually like and not riders i only feel some sympathy for. i did vote for VdB2 but only because of old jurgen van der breakaway which has long died (2009 :()

i did forget about vanmarcke tho so i will have to edit that in my post :o

I didnt mean Colombians because they are Colombians but rather Henao and Uran specifically. Especially Uran. Attacking rider formerly of your beloved team Unzue.

"i did vote for VdB2 but only because of old jurgen van der breakaway which has long died (2009*)" I also loved this Van Den Broeck. Pellizzoti and him the kings of the TDF mountain breakways in 2009.

i was talking about them. if i had to chose one of them i would actually choose henao. uran has disappointed me on the high mountains, particularly consistency wise after the expectations i had created at the 09 tour.

don't see what's the problem with it tho, you can't like every rider in the peloton and just because i don't like them it doesn't mean i dislike them either.

p.s. and while i have a religious devotion to abarca sports for their dedication to cycling which spams over 3 decades, i doesn't necessarily mean i have to like every rider on the team.
