I dont quite understand why you are asking that question.El Pistolero said:Don't you want the wearer of the rainbow jersey to do the jersey honor by winning a couple of races?
Makes sense, although I don't think every cyclist deserves the rainbows, but that was already discussed for ages when Cav won last year.The Hitch said:I dont quite understand why you are asking that question.
I assume you misunderstood the bit where i said i like someone else to win the worlds everytime.
What i mean is a year in the rainbow is a tremendous honour. There are plenty of people in the peloton that deserve it. Considering how much blood sweat and tears every rider in the peloton puts into their job day after day after day I would like as many riders to be able to enjoy a year in the stripes as possible
As such once someone has had their turn and has those memories for life, i want someone else to get the experience.
Nice post. Funny. Youve regained a little bit of the respect you just lost mega when you told me on vlr that you chickened out of our deal.El Pistolero said:Makes sense, although I don't think every cyclist deserves the rainbows, but that was already discussed for ages when Cav won last year.
He seems incredibly motivated indeed. Last wednesday in the Brabantse Pijl where he decided to drop everyone for a 2nd placing and yesterday with an incredible perfomance which he almost pulled off.c&cfan said:if this race and the one before it aren't a sign of huge motivation and pure love about this sport, i don't know what is.
I'm not sure, but I think that Rabo demands riders to learn english. Dutch would be nice, but not not neccesary.The Hitch said:Oh yeah, who else finds it funny that after 8 year at rabo he (it seems) never learnt their language.
I think Freire's already going to go down as an all-time legend anyway, but yes, outdoing Binda, Merckx and van Steenbergen for rainbows would be an achievement that would guarantee the status.El Pistolero said:Oh yes, I see. If he does win, he'll be a legend forever though.
