You didnt answered my question, my friend. I know Porte could reach 1st place, it is what all the people that see him in his first Giro would have thought he will be doing this days... but that doent answered my question. :rolleyes:

I personally think he is not going to win, especialy if Quintana go and he is out of bad luck.

whoah great moderation!!!!

You need to either get him to verify his claims or ban him permanently or you will end up with a forum of sniper, benotti, fearless greg lemond, netserk and yourself!!

Reporting his posts have no effect so why suggest that option?

Speculation once is great but continual repetition (trolling?) I believe turns people off!!

But hey I only have a small number of posts so don't count!!

To say that someone that get into profesional cycling with an spectacular performance in Romandia, and later a 7th place in the Giro, four years later was spected to be fighting for win the Giro has sense.

To link Porte with doping, when there isnt anything to think about that it is just BS.

So put you BS wherever you want, but respect me, ok?

It is allowed to insult you in private?, I would like to say you some things :).
I dont like that kind of unpoliteness, and I dont want to broke any rules, but I would like just to destress a little, and I dont know in the english culture, but in mine this is a great insult and I dont know how people like that is allowed to be moderating.

Thanks.

Cheers !

I anwsers questioned.

Portes will reach 1th places as now at Sky. Others team, maybe no.

But that is just speculations. The question is Ghandis violet mans?

Beside I think giros will be good. Portes, Quontanas but no Wiggin.

Vaughter maybe sends Hesadales?
 
Mollema is 2 years younger than Porte and outclimbed him in that Giro
Kiserlovski is a lot younger too and climbed on a similar level given that he was a domestique
And not to forget, Porte lost about 20 minutes to Basso in the mountains in 2010
2 years later he's clearly better than Mollema and Kiserlovski and capable of obliterating Basso
Perhaps not impossible, but definitely not what everyone would expect to happen

I am going to do a thehog:


good post bison ;)

What on earth was wrong with hog's post:confused:

He wrote it with poor grammar, and? Is there a law against that. Taxus seems to get away with it all the time. Or are you penalizing the hog because you think his english can be better. In which case, why.

WTF does second language have to do with anything. More than half the forum doesn't have English as their first language.

If you actually believe Taxus is for real with his poor English, then hog's posts will appear normal to him. It may even be the only post on the forum that actually appears coherent.

So who gets insulted? No one. There is no victim and absolutely no reason why people shouldnt be able to use poor grammar if they want.

Edit: also can netserk or a moderator remove his immage. If netserk wants to sit at home staring at animals behinds as they take a ****, thats his thing, but I think some of us would prefer not to see that image as we open a cycling thread.

Either way, it seems to me that image clearly violates this forum rule

I agree. 2 years ago he was useless as a domestique for Contador, now he is a better climber than him. Seems legit :rolleyes:

I bet Gerraint Thomas also will become the new Porte next year. Froome needs another super domestique, and they already have the excuse ready.

He was injured last years tour, but now that he is healthy we finally see his real potential. Climbing as good as Nibali and Contador? No problem, in the new clean era its normal that domestiques on team sky are as good or better than other teams leaders.

Nieve might win the Vueltas at this rate!

Porte is a joke. I flagged him on Ax3. He was worse than Froome.

He was mental. Totally mental. Not normal and high octane.

The only year in wich Porte didnt climb a lot is the year that a lot of people take as reference. Anyway, see the ITT of that year, amazing, even better than with SKY.
And that year Porte was a domestique in Giro and Tour. He look not very motivated for that, and to double in a good level too big races it is difficult.
And if today Porte climb better than Contador... I am not sure of that, just in Ax 3 Domaines I would say that, maybe you must ask yourself if Contador has the level he showed some years.

If you read about Porte story, you will find why he has beated in some races people as Mollema and Kiserlowski.
But anyway, I think Mollema is better in a GT.
Dont forger as well he is in SKY, and SKy is the team with best resources, new methods, marginal gains,... and they start to train a month before the others teams in the season, so they are very good in the first part of the year.

Please, moderators. Despite my poor english, I use to do typography mistakes, not just in english, as well in my lenguage.

This man (or maybe little boy as he behaves) it is always joking in a mistake and doing mistakes on purpose. You warn him, but he doesnt mind.

The worst is that he use my abilities sometimes to discredit an opinion, and that must be moderate, IMO.

Yes, I know, the truth hurts, my opinion hurts, some people would like be clearly dominant in the clinic. I am sorry abourt that, but you must be fare, and play clean (or cleans as thehog usually says).

Cheers!
 
I dont think Porte has the same talent as Froome for three weeks...In one week, maybe yes, if there is a short ITT and just one finish climb, short stage. I think Porte in that scenario has just a few rivals.

But in the Giro, maybe he even couldnt repeat his 7th place, despite that Giro was much harder and now he has more experience and better age.
He wanst really young in his first Giro, but he was a cyclist to built, he was begining road race.
So acording in the Tour he had just only a bad day, and he take rest just one day (maybe two), the second ITT... maybe he is ready to fight for the Giro.
But if Quintana is OK, he has nothing to do IMO. With Evans we will see, there is a long time since Passo Coe, he has not the freshness of Horner, but now I d bet he could beat his compatriot Porte in the Giro.
 
I want to clear up that I used the word doperdog, becouse I dont understand english, and I didnt think it was a more offensive word as when some people call me skyborg or something like that, first thing becouse I am not an SKy fan, and second becouse I dont understand and I consider offensive, so I do the same.

For my culture the picture of a bison throwing **** towards me is a big insult. So well, maybe is not that strong, but as well my intention wasnt go further that I receive, with the word that I invented: dopingdog, I have not problem in change that for the expresion: Lover of the doping theories, of lover of the doping offences. I know hrotha long time ago, he has no idea about cycling, he just speculatem he hasnt be inside cycling world, jusy read and live in his world, as a lot of people here.

They ask me dont assert cycling is mostly clean :eek::confused:, but people assert or assume the contrary, and anything happens.

I dont want to think there are censure, so explain why there are not.

Today is my birthday, that way I dont want discuss more.

They already cache. Maybe multi-master replication and round robin DNS. That means a good hosting budget and more adverts though. Don't know if they are that big yet.

I'm wondering if Sky can keep the lies straight another year. As long as Froome stares at his stem some more he'll be okay.
Porte & Froome will be taking bets on who can break the Clinic first.

Then again if Thomas wins Flanders he might get a chance to bring down the forum.

Even though he is going to be capable of doing 35 W/Kg on Oude Kwaremont and Paterberg, he (and rest of the sky) will probably crash/position themselves horrible/miss their bedroom/some brilliant excuse that they will prepare for press etc.
 
Boy; the Sky Haters are out in force on this thread.

Same ones this time last year taking about what would happen when Wiggins won the Giro & JT Locke winning how many grand tours?

They are just a cycling team, relatively successful for the last 2 seasons, but these things never last that long.

Get over it!
