If he doesn't win the Giro then he clearly stuffed up his preparation because with last year's form it should be a walk in the park. Unless he crashes or gets terribly sick of course.

His early season form can't possibly be any good or he's the most talented cyclist in the world. These post-season pictures of Wiggins and Froome are hilarious. So much difference. :eek:
What are you going on about?

All will10 did was say that you were wrong to speculate that Wiggins hadnt done much preperation.

And off that you project a bunch of imagined predictions on will10 and attack him for making them, when they all came from your wild imagination and notoriously poor comprehension skills.

Taking a look at his second chin says all about Wiggins preparation. Why would I be wrong about his preparation? Because you say so? :eek:

Is condescension the only type of argument you're capable of using?

Undoubtedly you said that about his chances of winning this year's tour, he won that and a few other races too. Which is great.

Eight pages ohhh. We can begin to discuss peace in the Middle East, but I think it is not allowed.

I wasnt making an argument. I asked why you were totally taking out of context everything will said.



I never said anything about Wiggins peperation. I have no idea how its going.
How is talking about whether Wiggins can win the Giro or not taking things out of context? ;)

Sven Nys doesn't even drink during New Year and goes to bed at midnight, now that's preparation. Not drinking like a baboon and smoking like a chimney.

You know that after period of smoking hematocrit level raises?
It's part of basic preparations. Latest method from Sky laboratory.

It's too expensive for teams to keep riders for extensive periods of time in resorts on high altitude.
Cigarettes are economical solution in the era of financial crisis and expense cutting.
Depending on goals and phase of preparation, every rider has his own program of cigarette consumption. Also depending on training program, cigarettes of different amount of CO are used.

Alcohol consumption is still in research phase, but there are evidences that it facilitates respiratory exchange after periods of consumption.

Wiggo is, obviously, pioneer in new training approach.
We all know how important is to apply modern methods in training, and what advantage it can give a rider.

Wiggo for the double!

Where is option for me? No, and he will finish both races as lanterne rouge
Sir Wiggo will be leader for the Giro and if he does Le Tour he will need to be a gregario for Froome.
 
I think a better poll question would've been: Can Wiggo do better than AC did in 2011?

I don't think he'll win both, it will be interesting to see how close he comes.
