You're one of those people who say that if taxes rise from 20% to 21% that there has been a 5% tax rise, aren't you?

Certainly. Which is the truth.

I'd say taxes rose one percentage point. Then it's clear.

Yes, I would say the same. But if I had to say how many percent it rose, I wouldn't say the wrong thing.

Because I want to steer a discussion away from mathematics?
All this percentage talk, it confuses me. I don't understand!
Would you be more comfortable if we only used fractions?

#### Salvarani

Meanwhile, in Greece:

Just thought I'd get this thread back on track.
It probably would have worked, if you hadnt written the last sentence of this post. Everyone took it as a challenge and to ask you about math instead.

Meanwhile MAL is already back to racing after his Gila crash, he'll race the Tour de Catamarca international (just call it Vuelta, ffs!).
Sadly no Najar on the start list, but team Blanco from Ecuador with Chalapud is starting and the legendary Dani Diaz is also there.
I hope Dani Diaz turns back the clock, so that this race makes the Giro look like a Mickey Mouse race from a watts perspective.

#### Samu Cuenca

This faulty profile for today's stage in Argentina is quite funny considering Quaranta won (the climb was actually 7 km at 4%).

#### Libertine Seguros

Díaz DNFed stage 1 so sadly we don't get to see him go for the watts on Portezuelo, since that's a very legit climb, 16,5km @ 6,4%. I expect a Team Medellín vs. Banco Guayaquil bloodbath.

Not so flat race with the hill 13 times. What a stronge rider he is becoming.
It's been a long day. I actually googled "stronge" instead of assuming it was a *** typo.

Superman Lopez strikes again at Catamarca!

#### Libertine Seguros

Medellín five of the top 9.

Any way we can get these boys to the Vuelta instead of Total Energies or Burgos-BH or something?

Someone won a 20 minute time trial by almost three minutes, give this man a WorldTour contract! Welp, not so fast, because witnesses have seen this man pull a Demare and get pulled by a car. Coincidentally he is the only rider not to upload his Strava file of this race, I wonder why that is.

It was an uphill/MTT. The winner is the only guy who went above 25km/h, 3km faster than Kuzmin who finished 2nd.
Wait, did he really pull a Demare?
