Balding or not, I wouldn't say he's bad looking though. He has a certain Joe Cool look with his scruffy beard. But he's not as cool as Super Mario, and never will be. That naked photo was shot in a studio against a green screen, the background is fake.

Would like to see him win a stage though. One of the few aggressive GC riders left in the race (or racing today).

Pointless attacks today ending up losing more time in the GC for a leader who was having a bad day :eek:
The attack wasn't pointless. It worked to an extent, shelling Henao, and how was he to know how Poels and Nieve would respond without testing them?

Quintana probably didn't feel great but doesn't care about the podium - he's prepared to gamble that Froome was feeling even worse than him and try to open up the race. Obviously though Froome was as strong as ever. Reminds me of Contador's recent toils in the TdF a bit.

Apparently, he is quite popular within women and has been linked with multiple affairs. He also has various children with different woman and was sentenced to pay for the maintainance of some of them.

Having said that, I'm not an expert in his personal like, some people of the spanish forum will probably know better than me.

Valverde is just tired. I can see him dropping out of the top-10 at the end of the race. Especially if Movistar sacrifies him for a possible Quintana stage win.

He has to think about Río now. No point in riding himself to the limit for a dropping Quintana at the end.

It was.Quintana was looking really bad and he was lucky that they attacked so late on the climb.No point in burring Valverde for nothing.

Well it was now or never really. If Valverde is being used a domestique - which he clearly was by burning himself out - today was the stage to make a decisive move. Quintana gambled that - even though he wasn't great - Froome could have been worse. It was a noble and courageous effort by Movistar - potentially sacrificing a podium to go for a long shot at the overall - so I think we can commend them for that.

Valverde is rich, of course there are many women that like him. Money and fame make a lot of things easier. He looks quite stupid with his helm off. The same goes for Boonen, hair makes a lot of difference sometimes lol.

Well, you exaggerate a bit. He has been married ''just'' twice. First time with a Spanish journalist from TVE some time ago, Angela, with whom he has a twin, now he is settled for some time with Natalia with whom he also has two kids. Don't believe everything you read or hear ;)

Speaking as a women Bala was quite Hot in his younger days. Real bedroom eyes :). He is still quite attractive despite the hair loss. Fame and money has absolutely nothing to do with it..... Just my female opinion :).

Fairly certain that Valverde will ride the Giro next year and Quintana the TDF.

100th Giro should attract a cracking field.
hopefully froome, that would make the tour finally a lot more interesting when he´s tired.

My gf finds him attractive as well, even though I completely disagree with her.

But based on scientific evidence, he's really attractive in 2008 :p
