Plus he looks like he has the same attitude as lance.
so do we blame mark for him being the best sprinter in the world..? the same as we blame lance for being the best tour rider in the world...
it phecks me off actually.. we want riders to be the best, we built them up, we demand improvement, we want them to get better and better.. But when we reach that point we complain that they dominate..
Domination, and cycles of domination are part of sport: Liverpool, Real Madrid, Manchester UTd in football, Schumaker in motor racing, Mike Tyson, Tiger Woods, Greg Normal, Seirge Budka, Carl Lewis, Daley Thomson, Phil Taylor, Steve Davis, Bjorn Bjorg, Martina Navratilova, Eddie Merckx, Lance Armstong..
He is in his second year as a contender. Cav won four stages last year, hes held the pink in the giro, won one classic, and two out of three flat stages this year.. When hes won 3 or 4 green jerseys in a row, won three straight san remos, THEN start accusing him of domination..

Erm.. where is that in the rules...? No sport is unpredictable, or there would be no such think as a bookmaker with money..
