There's more to life than being supercompetitive and ambitious in your professional career, you know.
Sure, and I hope he finds a career that motivates him. He had to be super competitive and ambitious to get to the very top: what happened? He can't possibly feel good about himself, being underperforming and the butt of so many jokes.hrotha said:There's more to life than being supercompetitive and ambitious in your professional career, you know.
Yet here he is, doing competitive sports. But when did being minimally fit to do one's job become being supercompetitive and ambitious?

Not really. For me it's a way of dealing with how good Betancur could be if he got everything right heading into the season for once. He has colossal potentialcarton said:Yep. He's also a rather large, I mean ...soft, check that...easy target.42x16ss said:
I imagine there might also be a fair bit of jelousy towards a guy who can use the first week of the Giro as a warm-up and almost bag a stage later on and who can win major WorldTour stage races while carrying around an extra 15 pounds. That's got to be annoying for the sufferfest brigade.
Betancur himself says it's a problem with the work permit:AlexNYC said:What a load of 5h!t... Colombians no longer need visas to enter the Schengen countries, much less Spain.
