He already decided to ride the 2009 Giro in 2008, so he also knew what the stages were like. Hardly a valid argument in this case.
I wasn't even talking about cancellara but about aquarone making the first week for classic riders. Then you come in and purely to vent your hate of cancellara make a poorly constructed sentence barely relevant to my post that cancellara will probably moan that the stages are too hard.
Personally i think pointing out that cancellara may have seen the stages before.deciding whether to.go, is a perfectly valid response to the suggestion that he is going to find the race difficult.
Has it not occurred to you that he hasn't done the giro since then and that stages suiting him might just be the reason he's coming back?
The only reason its not.valid.to.you is because you want to make the thread about cancellara pulling out from starting the tt in 2009. Go make your own thread for.that.
Maybe we could then add in a.discussion about which cobbled rider is once again going to let his form.drop in April and which one is once again going to.race out the year.
I don't see what Boonen has to do with this? He complained the Vuelta was too hard and didn't start.
Cancellara complained the tt was too hard and didn't start. So what's the problem?
