I think the same tooCarols said:No_Balls said:On the same note as Lauras article. I like this one:
Cycling can be a monotonous sport, and the best rider in the world today is a robotic dude who stares at a power meter. Contador’s dominant career is an affront to the idea that steady, machinelike riding is the only way to be a winning cyclist. He spent his entire career bobbing and weaving above his handlebars, ripping away from his opponents with some of the most vicious and sudden attacks the sport has ever known, and punishing those who would try to keep pace with him. He’s a true bike racer, a risk taking madman in a sport that’s growing more staid. Cycling won’t be the same..
Sigh, the cycling I've known and loved for decades may have died on Sunday.
But there is hope, Nibali is no robot and a youngster with 'the goods' may show up .
