Very bad result for image of the sport. Every story outside of the usual cycling media will be about the drug cheat winning, not about the style of the win.
Uran was completely dead and kept coming through even at 2km to go. He rode for silver.Kwibus said:I don't agree he rode for silver. They both took turns so that's bs.
The final moment will lead to an endless discussion wether Vino bought this or not, but if Vino really did buy the race I hope they wouldn't do it this obvious don't you think?
I don't believe it
agreed. It was a good race, given the expectations based on the profile.Libertine Seguros said:The last sentence might be hyperbole, but it was certainly the overachiever race of the year, i.e. the race that promised the least but delivered the most in relation to that.
Sad but true. The race was great in terms of spectacle but in terms of result, big step backwards for pro racingWergeland said:+ 1
Bad day for cycling.
Vino has a lot of fans who know cycling, but for the average sportsfan, Vino is a doper and another example of the fact that cycling is a sport dominated by dopers.
Now I'd like to protect my countrymen a bit. They were attacking all day and when Uran and Vino were gone it was Gesink who was pulling the group for a long time. Not fast enought, but still he was.Mellow Velo said:Anyhow, the Cav course actually produced a great race; much more animated than the average World Champs.
Who would have thought?
A Kazakh, Columbian, Norwegian podium.
Big red faces for GB, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Australia, Holland and even France.
Very sad scene with Cancellara.
Season done, I'd say.
give a bit of credit to Vino making a clever move there when Uran looked over his left shoulder to see how big the gap was and Vino jumped right.will10 said:Uran was completely dead and kept coming through even at 2km to go. He rode for silver.
