Galic Ho said:Check the bold. How would Evans have known, unless he is aware of your alias and real identity? As 53x11 said at the time, in all likelyhood to the casual observer, total BS by you. I'm not saying it was, only you know, but it looked that way. It would have taken courage to back up what you were claiming. You have your reasons and I'll leave it at that. Aussiecyclefan didn't hold back, even though it was looking alarmingly like Evans was heading to BMC.
"Wannabe's, havebeen's and knowitalls." So your 'anonymous opinion' is that other posters hide behind their anonymous identities and can be described by the previous three terms. Classy assessment as that describes all of cyberspace, a vast uncharted region that streches to infinity and beyond. Good to hear someone say Cadel isn't a hero. Also seems you haven't elevated onto the pedestal many other have. Very few heroes ride bikes for a living.
New topic. Who thinks after the TDU announcement we'll see some new editions to Cadels racing calender? Maybe the Giro, as a lot here hoped, is now on the menu and he could take a serious crack. I'd like to see it, but don't know what to think with Evans. I was positive he wouldn't race the TDU. Would he really foresake the Giro as a GC ambition, where BMC have an invite, to cling to the hope of a Tour invite?
I wouldn't read too much into the TDU decision. I have seen him say in the last couple of days that he wants to do it to show off the Rainbow jersey to the locals. And good on him for having that attitude. In the same article (interview, can't remember if it was in the paper or on tv) he said the TdF was still his main goal.
I'd like to see him do the Giro/Vuelta double and skip the TdF. No-one is beating AC and the course doesn't suit him at all.
