Nibali and Valverde. Have long enjoyed watching both of them race. Not only their final race, also consider, just for these two riders) all the forum memes/analogies/jokes that will also be (eventually) be retired:
-Showing off the trophy cabinet
-“Valverde’s in the chase group” = guaranteed they won’t work well enough to catch the leaders
-Bala Sr. Citizen joke
-Nibali descending = automatic excitement (in former years)
-Valverde hair (or lack of) jokes
and I’m sure others that haven’t popped immediately to mind. . .
