it has nothing to do with attacking like an imbecile but what hushovd did in p-r showed what he was. a lack of leadership, a coward, the pure fear in his eyes when cancellara stopped riding and hushovd had no clue what to do. you could see it in his eyes I will never forget that moment. that's when I saw ok you will never win this race(unless lucky vansummeren move) because you don't have something guys like boonen, vino, gilbert and cancellara have, responsibilityTRDean said:Im not sure you know the meaning of the word coward...not necessarily how I would describe Hushovd's riding style.
Its funny on here...unless a rider attacks...attacks...attacks he is a coward. There is more to winning a race than just attacking. Using your head. Sometimes...just hanging on to make the sprint requires more courage/intestinal fortitude than being able to go on the attack. The wheel sucking argument is old and tired. Heck, I don't even like Hushovd very much..but calling him a coward is just short sighted.
