I'm going to laugh my *** off if the only race Gilbert wins next year is Paris-Roubaix(I think he said he'll enter next year)

Let's not get ridiculous now. It's only a recon for 2013. :)

Though I hope he doesn't enter. Too risky, IMO. 2012 could be his big year. ;)
Yeah, me too. I hope he finally wins the Ronde next year and LBL for a second time+ first time WC.

Then he can focus more on Paris-Roubaix for 2013. And he really should focus on it in 2013 if he manages to win the Ronde, LBL and WC next year.

Chris Froome will win everything except the Tour of California, because participating in it is beneath him. He will even win the Tour de France and Tour de Pologne racing them simultaneously. He will even win the Giro Donne by riding with his tail between his legs.

I will store this in my memory for the unlikely eventuality of being able to use it as evidence. Also, if he does win I get to say you heard it here first :cool: ;)

Sad to see such a top class athlete, who went out of his way to thank foreign fans even as some through death threats at him, inspires such hatred.
