Oh sorry:eek:! you'd think he wouldn't just know how to speak his native tongue?

Happens a lot with spanish and italian people. Especially someone from the South of Spain, nowhere near the border with other countries...

Ever noticed how we don't have italians at the forum?

And greeks! Due to aus having lots of italians and greeks a lot of the older generation don't even learn or try how to speak the language. They just go off to restaurants eating pizza's or eating souvlaki's all day!:D

Are you fair dinkum?

Are their or have their been any greek pro cyclists?

I have no idea what that first sentence means.
Still, I was joking. I thought that was obvious. Although you're probably jokingly trying to demonstrate my point about Australian "English"

Greek pros....uhm....there's a small greek team. There was a reasonable track sprinter who did ride small races on the road. No one good, though. In the past few years, I mean.

"Are you fair dinkum" is aussie slang for "are you serious"

Not about Valverde vs Evans but...

Gotta say I like what I see of Evans so far this year. Maybe he's turned a corner? We did start to see some of it last year (more aggressive).

Winning a Worlds has to help a lot with confidence too. I'm pretty sure Evans is gonna win a Giro or Vuelta.

You have 2 consecutive Dauphine's where Evans has finished 2nd, with an emphasis on the fact that Evans was in the leader's jersey when Valverde's attack resulted in his losing the race lead and ultimately the overall. While the WC is an obvious tick on Evans' side, in head to head battles Valverde has come out far and way on top, if you look at victory being the form of measurement. I don't even see how it can be argued, with Valverde being the more prolific in terms of actual victories.
The Vuelta was the first time Valverde has finished ahead of Cadel in a GT. A bit of luck(wheel change) for Cadel and Valverde may still have not beaten Cadel in a GT.

The on going rivalry of the dauphine, the vuelta, the worlds between valverde and evans has been intensified as a new chapter needs to be written after the past few days of the tour down under.

Your thoughts about the rivalry...

I can understand why you would be more interested in Cuddles, you're just growing into a woman and you want someone who is a bit less threatening, more feminine. Cadel with his squeaky voice and toy dog is just the ticket.

But when you’re a little older you will realise what a hottie Valverde is and you will change your tune. O yeah, Valverde wins bucket loads of bike races as well and Cuddles has won the tour of Tasmania.... Any rivalry is all in Cuddles's head.

Actually, the bile is usually after his name, such as Valv-piti-piece-O-sh*t :D Now, having said this, I would not negatively comment on Valv-piti's racing abilities, as he is clearly one of the best riders in the game and has a great finishing sprint.

I stand corrected. Thanks for putting me straight.;)

He married a piano teacher. But I suppose it's hard to make the distinction from all the way up on that high horsie of yours.

It was my understanding, based on an Evans article in an older issue of either
Pro Cycling or Cycle Sport, that she was a classical pianist. Interviewed during his T-Mobile years.

Galic Ho has a business degree and all, so don't be too hard on this intellectual giant.

I dont think you could even figure out what dress to wear with your new handbag. I dont think it matters anyway as Cuddles only likes small fluffy dogs in that way, so he wouldnt go for you.

Im causing trouble? well at least I'm not reposible for over two thousand of the most pointless, idiotic posts that this forum has ever produced. Blackcat was right when he said you know absolutely nothing about cycling and probably never will.

Perhaps he wouldn't have so many posts if he didn't constantly reply to yours and others like it.

Stop winding him up and he would stop posting stupid s h i t.:rolleyes:
