Galic Ho said:Explain to me why then in last years prologue that Andy Schleck went faster than a former world champion? Drugs. Get your head checked fanboy. Rogers is nothing special. He hasn't won squat. Heck him winning the Tour would have been a big sign he was doped. As I said, you might want to get your head checked.
Cameron Meyer a GT winner, let alone contender? Nope. As was pointed out, every aussie who wins something is often hailed the next great white hope. Who cares? Thats right, the aussie fanboys like Glockers and Aussiecyclefan94 who realise they need a new whipping boy considering their darlings Rogers and Evans respectively have come up with nothing so far, except some broken collarbones, epstein bar virus and a second place to "dirty Spaniard." Oh and I forgot, they both choked! Cough, cough. But Evans WC jersey will bring him luck won't it fellas?
To the original OP. Who mentioned Cameron Meyer as a GT winner? He raced this week and all of a sudden he is seen as a potential winner. WTF! Here is how I see it. Aussiecyclefan94 by starting this thread is one of those people proclaiming Meyer as a future winner, with no basis to do so. He/She (there is confusion amongst forumists to the exact sex of the poster) said "people see" and "have mentioned." Well until you did Aussiecyclefan94 I had not heard a word of that dribble. Hence we don't need to look hard to find who has been suggesting as much. You have and tried to disguise it with a veiled question in the OP. How about leaving the young fella alone and dropping the talk of him being your next messiah. Let him race and if he turns out some great showings then good for him. Till then, just drop it. Hypothetical BS is all it is right now.
Why do people do this? They're Aussies and they are fanboys. They have to latch onto every Aussie who can pedal decently, because compared to the Europeans in GTs they are few and far between. Really it is nothing more than deluded rampant patriotism run amok. I know, I am an Aussie and I see this crap all the time.
I don't like Cadel. I haven't jumped on his bandwagon. I guess I'm not an Aussie?
