He is a cautious rider that limits his losses, like so many others. I wouldn't necessarily categorize that as cowardly. More like riding within his means.

It wasn't the Alpe, but Prato Nevoso ;)
Cancellara is like The Black Album. Really good but way overrated.

I had a good laugh on seeing this thread last night before I went to bed. Got to ask, how is this still open?

With a name like SilentAssassin you can't ignore the fact that this is just another fanboy thread or just a big joke. There must be another thread existing deeper down the forum, where this would be a little more appropriate if you want to post anything else about Menchov, but this particular subject belongs in the Clinic.

And he isn't the rider you'd cheer for, you almost liked it when he failed. :o

Yes, it belongs in the Clinic.

But, did I miss something? How did we get from January to April, and I don't remember any of it? Have I been drinking too much? A 3-month blackout?

He had his moments, not one prone to attacking but what GT rider really is these days. Except Contador.
