If he doesn't get a vanity plate that says "PNTYDRPPER", then I've lost all respect I ever had for him. Once one has an F430, one is literally untouchable by any and all...all becoming rightfully small.
From his dvd I understood that he doesn't drive much- regardless, Ferrari's have an amazing safety record. Yet, for a guy who will be retiring soon with a dwindling income thereafter, perhaps as a toy it is more revealing of his mental age.
Look, check out the guys calves - massive vascularization, a side effect of EPO use. He may not just have given his career to LA, but also much of his life. I feel for the guy, since he is a great cyclist, but in this mixed up sport he had to do it! So he should surely reap the benefits that his patron provides! Who knows how long he has to live before he has an embolism!
If only he had just risen through the continental pro ranks, and not been a lieutenant of Sir Armstrong. He would have been able to dictate his own schedule and his second place finish to Boonen in Paris Roubaix might have been followed, or even preceded, by a victory.
the f430 is a cool car with a top speed a little higher than my 911, but last week out on the highway, a guy in his f430 and i were speeding along upwards of 250kph and my car accelerated faster and handled better through the curves. he could have been an awful driver, but i'm definitely no pro, either. FWIW.
