God only knows why Pisti was talking about Boonen. ;) This spring could be a one-man show.
...[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? Does anybody think for a second that a secret that big wouldn't come out? Bill Stapleton

Great thing Nibali and Contador attacking, and Froome solid ride. :)

Pisti knows that finishing within 2 minutes from Sagan is a great result for any mere mortal ;)

At least Boonen will have a chance in Roubaix.

Take it to the clinic. ;)

Funny though, we're still hearing you moping about Gesink's injury even though it's more than a year ago.

Yeah, obviously an elbow injury is just as bad for a cyclist as breaking your femur in three places ;)

Almost losing your arm is worse than that yes.

Contador just testing the sensations. Winning is a result. Green Mountain is only climb.

Ask Gesink what injury he'd rather have had ;)

You're just too easy to bait. Don't worry, Tommeke will be okay for the classics. Not as good as last year, probably, but yeah... you can't have 'em all.

Last year was Gesink's third best year lol. Not much worse than his second best year. :o

And that's with crashing out of the Tour de France.

I don't care if he'll be okay for the classics, I'm just happy he's on his bike again after a serious injury and doing good in his first race. But apparently you feel the need to mock his injury and call it "baiting me". Confessing that you're a troll? :o

It's not worse unless you actually do lose the arm.

Stunning scenery in Oman. And by the looks of it a brilliant road. I need to go there now in a powerful car.

I'd personally rather break my femur than risk losing my arm.

Lance almost died and lost a testicle to boot. Does that mean every single year he rode it was the equivalent of if he had just broken his leg

His come-back was harder than Gesink's come-back yes. But anyway, unlike Gesink's injury, which isn't relevant anymore at all yet is still used as an excuse for Gesink for some reason, Boonen's elbow infection happened less than a month ago and is still very much relevant.

Anyone reckon that cancellara might try something tomorrow? I know gallopin is second in the gc but i think the team should allow cancellara to go for the stage win instead of putting all their eggs in one basket with gallopin. I want to see how sagan will do against spartacus

If he's smart he'll help Gallopin, in order to earn his loyalty for the classics. Like he did with Breschel at Dwars door Vlaanderen.
