I think statements such as this is why a lot of people are very sceptic of his fans and as a result, trying to oppose the sometimes extreme views presented in this thread. And thats just the top of the iceberg.LeSensei said:The man had a broken calf and several wounds on his thigh and still decided to ride. No wonder he had fever that last day, his body was so demolished it couldnt handle all that effort. This makes me so proud of supporting him. He is a real fighter, never gives up until the end.
People who critiziced him for faking "illness" should feel ashamed of themselves, I doubt they could even walk with those injuries and the man withstanded 3 mountain stages and finished above people like Pinot. Does anyone HONESTLY think his rivals had a single chance against a man who is capable of making it to the top 20-30 with his legs broken???
