That is a really, really, really unproven "fact", one that apparently exists only in your's and Horner's heads. When we've gone into the 3rd week and Horner has proven his Velonews proclaimation, then we might be able to even rate him with the elite climbers in the sport. To receive those types of accolades you have to do it consistently versus the best, not just say it and expect everyone to accept it. C'mon!2wheels said:I'll be surprised if Kloden isn't riding for Horner by the end of the Pyrenees. The two of them are both staying nicely under the radar thus far, but when the road tips up I think it favors Chris-- in fact, he may be the best pure climber next to Contador in the Tour this year [/B], and his tactical sense is second to none.
