And Henao first season? Has been riding like a pro in South-America and you know it.


And what's so special about Betancurt? I can probably find a dozen youngsters with similar seasons in their second year as a pro.

Fact of the matter is that this bad cyclist Leipheimer has a better palmares than all 4 Colombians combined. :o


this is hilarious considering you always say to me and others how amateurish colombian cycling is and how low the level is. lol you dug your own hole and fell into it again :o

Not at all. I compared it to cyclo-cross level. Cyclo-cross is a professional sport, just an incredibly small one.

Same goes for South-American cycling.

Besides you think the level in South-America is incredibly high, so you can't use the "first year as a pro" argument. I don't dig, I'll let you do my digging.

Lets also celebrate the next end of career of Menchov, Klöden, Frank Schleck, Basso, Scarponi and Zubeldia. Most of them with an inferiority complex because of the Us Postal era and which never contributed nothing for cycling.

Cancellara is like The Black Album. Really good but way overrated.
