+1 on Lemond.The Hegelian said:Lemond '92. Inexplicable loss of 40 minutes in the Voges (that now seems perfectly explicable).
Contador yesterday. So deflating for the race.
Pantani finished that Giro but are you referring to a crash on a mountain stage late in the race? I remember him sitting on the side of the road, dejected, eventually getting back on the bike.Angliru said:-Contador is the one that hits me the deepest.
-Juan Mauricio Soler Hernandez's career ending crash
-Joseba Beloki in 2003 (the most horrific)
-Igor Anton's crash that put an end to what seemed a sure Vuelta win
-Valverde's consecutive dnf's from the Tour (2005 & 2006), 2005 after beating
Armstrong on Courcheval (knee injury)
-Iban Mayo's Tour DNF after delivering the smack down on Armstrong at that year's Dauphine.
-Pantani's 2003 Giro. I truly believe that had he finished that Giro that he would still be alive now.
A cyclist breaks his tibia and is forced to abandon and that makes you cold? YGTBKM!!!!!!!!!! How is he supposed to pedal? Or is AC's abandonment OK because he left in the team bus as opposed to an ambulance.Master50 said:Anyone that leaves the race in an ambulance with lesser injuries a very close second. Any injury based abandon leaves me cold.
I suppose recently this Tour has been a shocker with Cav and Froome going out in the first 5 days. Also now Contador gone who was the guy I'd put money on to win too.Jspear said:I commend you for your bravery in sticking out like a sore thumb.
