Valverde is a disgrace.

And Chaves is such a champion :rolleyes:
Yes, because that is so relevant. :eek:
It's a fair point. If Valverde is being criticized for not wasting loads of energy for a handful of seconds, why not make the same comment about the guy actually sitting in second place?
Chaves could be the most passive and boring rider in the history of the sport for all I care and Valverde would still be a disgrace.

If you're making a general point, rather than specific to today's stage, probably better to put in the Valverde thread to avoid confusion.

If nothing happens in the next 2 stages, this giro only had 3 really good stages for the GC (and just in general) and one of them was a timetrail
The danger in putting great stages in the 2nd week is that, if one is too strong, the last week stages become a dud.
This is why you needed a lesser climber in the lead, like Dumoulin in the Vuelta last year. Then it would be far more interesting.

Now it's just hoping for a bad day for Kruijswijk for the competition or nothing will happen.

Can't you take your borderline disgusting nationalism somewhere else?
Saying Valverde is a disgrace = nationalism. Noted.

Your post wasn't nationalistic per se, but your every post is extremely Colombia-centric, so when you are saying Valverde is a disgrace for no particular reason of course I am going to react. I can't see how he has raced any differently than Chaves - as a matter of fact, he has instigated attacks more than him in this Giro.

why would the guy in 2nd place want to take seconds? the guy in third place is behind not the other way around :rolleyes:

Yeah, and the guy in 4th place is behind the one in 3rd place...
