Nice!

How are you feeling about Portuguese riders these days? Any favorites or ones to watch for?

Is it natural to also hope for Spanish riders to do well?

Who is your favorite historical rider?

Which is your favorite race on the calendar?
The only portuguese rider that i like is Antonio morgado, this young guy will impress this year, he is super talented with a strong mentality.

Personally i never liked rui costa, what a wheelsucker.

Almeida is a humble and nice guy, but i consider is style of racing very boring, is not the type of rider that captivates me to see a race.

Usually i don't support riders, just because they are from my country.

Usually not, the portuguese fans never support spanish riders, it's the opposite, they want spanish riders to lose in every race, specially if they go against a portuguese rider.

My historical favourite riders are specially pantani, pettachi and froome.

Tour de France, il lombardia, paris roubaix.
 
Male, Portugal

Vingegaard and van der poel

I'm a living proof that you should just live the life as you want, because you can't please everybody.

I had one guy make a post where he said I was his favourite forum user, and another guy who made a post saying he created an account, after a decade of lurking, just to put me on ignore :))))))))))

We need more posters like you. Making fun of Skeletor, Fatco, Chris "Hard miles" and co never gets boring.
 
I would think he’s got to earn a spot with merit from here on out. He won’t be at the Tour.
I think his summer 2023 shape should‘ve earned him a spot for the 2023 TdF.

The thing is, Adams can hardly say, „Now we won’t let him ride the Tour, forever“.

He at least will need a final TdF, to say goodbye to his TdF crowd. It‘s now or never, then, because he doesn’t get any younger.

He‘s a pure legend, with all the epic stuff he overcame, worms and stuff. He‘s the most valuable rider of his team, so should travel to the 2024 TdF as a captain, imho…

It would be great to see him back on San Luca climb in Bologna...hopefully at the front like in Giro d'Italia 2009

That’s a unique take. IMO 2023 was the first year he was judged on merit. And was accordingly dropped.

The worms. I can’t believe there’s anyone left who buys that crap. Amazing.
