72 Volta a Portugal Bicicleta- em, 2.1 August 04-15 (Kash in !)

Page 12 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
Just watched yesterday's stage.
WTF? Candy a*s Barbosa gets caught from behind, so he waggles his arms around and hey presto, they hand him the stage.
In football terms, he took a blatant dive, having lost it.
Fecking ridiculous.
Decisions like that can turn a great race into a home town joke.:mad:

They have already signed new riders for next year.

BTW, I noticed that Henao was riding a Cervelo bike during this final TT of the Tour of Colombia. They can surely use a rider like him :)

he also had rainbow stripes on them. is that an omen as well?? :)

Barbosa keeps on whining that they try to design the race to stop him from winning everything, when it's quite clear that that isn't the case. Yesterday he was given a great big present by Joaquim Gomes and his team.

Saur have given a lot to the race. JE getting the leader's jersey, Casper's stage win etc.
Decisions like yesterday's can only discourage their continued involvement, should they receive an invite, next year.
Can the organisers afford to take such chances, by gifting wins to appease
one man's ego?
 
This is a very good question, especially considering that Cândido is 35 now and won't be riding much longer. Saur have definitely brought a lot to the race, and it's been good to have them there, as a top level Pro Continental team that are capable of mixing it in the sprints. I hope that the organisation haven't alienated them, or don't feel that the likely increased Portuguese profile next year (return of Liberty Seguros, LA hoping to go Pro Continental) means it's less important to attract foreign teams to the race, because teams like them have made an impact and shaped the race. CarmioOro especially have brought something to the race, with Pardilla ending up on the podium and Sella being one of the key attackers in the race. Sure, Lampre can be relied on to show up as their company has a Portuguese subsidiary, but other teams like Saur, like CarmioOro and like ISD, need to be made to feel welcome at the race.

I didn't got a chance to see the yesterdays finish, but the consensusis that it was a gift to Candido.

It is really a shame, for Saur who made a great race, and for Candido. It is not the way to go.

All in all it was a good Race, too bad for the Serra da Estrela stage that lacked the mountains before the last climb, but the first stages were quite fun.
 
The organization didn't give a gift to Cândido Barbosa. The decision wasn't of the responsability of Joaquim Gomes and his team. The decision was made by a UCI commissioner, a french lady according to the commentators. The way you all talk make it sound that the organization is corrupt just because of this wrong decision, wich they don't have the responsability.

For you maybe Ryaguas but maybe not for others so please stay away from it will yah.

&
there is a post about Lesser Known Race Results HERE... or you could use General News Thread too HERE...

If you'd done your homework ... this remark would have stayed of the radar :p
 
ya this isn't posted on neither of those threads.

i was going to post it yesterday but then got busy and couldn't do it.

anyway

that guy has been talked a lot lately by portuguese fans like myself and according to some guys with more experience/knowledge then me, he may be a future GT GC contender. cus he has a good ITT(first here sixth in the europeans a few secs behind the first and he says he wants to win the worlds itt too) and he also is good on the road(again sixth in the europeans)

but he is not the only one. with him there are few more guys that may have a shinny future ahead(most know of those guys are rui costa, tiago machado(both are extremely entertaining to watch as they are very offensive) and nelson oliveira(has a few medals in both road and itt championships)
