dimspace said:am i the only one whos sees nothing wrong with this article...?
he said he has no plans to leave the team, that he has a lot of love for garmin, that hes been happy there.. he then continues to say basically this tour made him realise perhaps he can challenge but to do that he would have to move to a bigger team, this is a fact, garmin dont have the strength and depth to support a potential tour winner... to win the tour he would have to take a step up... whats the big problem there, its true, and i dont think JV would deny it.. this is why hes so keen on contador, a guy who doesnt need support as opposed to signing riders to help one rider maybe podium...
i think this is another case of the non brits completely missing the british grammar and way of saying things.. we dont beat around the bush like some... for the same reason cav appears as brash, eddie irvine used to appear as arrogant (in f1)..
i personally see nothing whatsoever wrong with that article.. (and thats not being a fanboy.. its just analysing it so much)
edit: ive just watched the whole thing.. can nobody see the smile on his face from before he said it.. brad is stirring, stirring like he always does.. good god.. these foreigners really dont understand humour do ya...

British Pro Cycling said:He was gaining time and would probably have gotten bronze. There is no way he would pretend there is something wrong with the bike. After he got up the hill he was about the enter his fastest part of the course.
Angliru said:He was just passed by 2 of his chief competitors who he had at the minimum, a minute headstart on so I'm going to say he was feeling a bit humiliated and his anger and emotion got the best of him. His comments were unsportsmanlike whichever way you look at it and sounded more like sourgraps than any substantiated claim of a violation taking place. Add to that he appeared to be following Cancellara's path after he passed him, getting in his draft so his complaint could also be seen as hypocritical. Dude had a bad day that he made much worse with his little temper tantrum.

dimspace said:im a bit confused by the following...
"The deal goes further than Team Sky, according to Pinarello importer Phil Griffiths of Yellow Limited. Griffiths understands that all road riders on British Cycling's teams will now be supplied with Pinarellos, with Sky's new recruits set to have up to six machines each to choose from."
what does that mean.. all british teams as in the british road team at the worlds, or the track team are getting pinarello track bikes.. seems a bit all encompassing.. and why would the track team want pinarellos?
lanternrouge said:So Sky and the GB road team. The track team will not be on pinarello, they will be on their own "specials".
