Please don't compare a rider that focused on one race during his career with a champion that was active during an entire season, won all grand tours more than once and many classics. In a recent interview Eddy Merckx stated he raced 150 days in one season. LA—30, 40 days?Bagster said:Well in that case we will have to accord the same courtesy to LA.
But hey great reasoning, you win a few bikes races and then you can have carte blanche to slag anyone off you choose! and with no right of comeback, even better!
Bluebeard said:According to a secret ASO document I recent got to skim read, by my translation, if the tour has turned into a bit of a flop, Hinault and Evans are to duke it out atop the Ventoux.
