I think this is the big thing. There were question as to rather he could even come back at all. Even with what he and his friends where saying during the fall it was hard to believe until he actually started racing again. He did come back stronger than anyone would have expected.RedheadDane said:I'm not riled up, just amused/confused by this constant changing around of what's considered a big race.Eli said:How long have some of you folks been on this forum? Can't believe you lot still let El Pisti rile you up. Bala could win all 5 monumemts and all 3 grand tours in a season and Pisti still would not have a good word to say about Him.
And for the record, I don't see Valverde as a hero, I just see him as a regular bike rider who is sometimes good, sometimes bad.
However, what I don't see any reason to either is painting him as a villain. In fact there are very few professional bike riders I see any reason to paint as a villain, would probably have to murder someone for that to happen...
Valverde may not have come back stronger than ever after his crash, but he certainly came back stronger than expected! Understandably, since it was feared that he wouldn't be able to come back.
