Doesn't vbulletin have a feature that automatically shrinks images to a maximum size and allow them to be clicked on to be displayed full size?

Pretty sure I've seen that feature on other forums, but perhaps they are running something else like IPboard.

This is the Sagan thread. What better place to post his photos?

As far as your opinion of Sagan, is it his celebrations that really have gotten under your skin? Is it that you think that he's not showing proper respect to his opponents? I believe you are mistaking youthful enthusiasm and exuberance for what you are calling a massive ego.

Obviously he's not the only one to think that. Cancellara rode to make Sagan lose because of those celebrations.

It was my understanding that if there was reason for the way Cancellara rode it was because of some bitterness regarding Sagan shadowing him in big races,
following his wheel. Not just Sagan though. He's on record of saying that he won't be giving anymore leadouts to his opponents.

Nice mind reading ;):rolleyes:

Not mind reading, Cancellara is an open book. He said Sagan irritates him, that he shows no respect towards other riders and that he won't ride on with Sagan in his wheel. Says enough. The moment Sagan had a little gap in San Remo Cancellara closed it down instantly. He had an agenda. He practically had no eye for any other rider in that break.

true, but it also fits the other way, cancellara caught only sagan because in other case he would lead him to the win - at least that's what would fabs said if asked. Nevertheless, there is other problem too. By catching sagan, he practically lead Ciolek to the win. So he either does not want to bring specifically sagan to the line, he is just inconsistent with the words he said. Or maybe, he understimated Ciolek too.

I agree with that. But that wasn't what I responded to. You said it was because of the celebrations, do you have a source for that, or is that just your mind reading? :rolleyes:

No, it's again Cancellara saying that. Read his interviews lol.

The rational bit of my brain absolutely agrees with this, and as Sagan seems like he's a once in a generation level of awesome I also agree that we will be honoured to have witnessed his rise and be talking in misty eyed reverence in twenty years.

And yet, even though I know you're almost certainly right about the youthful exuberance, I can't help but find some of his celebrations just the wrong side of smug and self-satisfied, to the degree that the shot of his face as Ciolek beats him yesterday is kind of funny. I guess this reflects more badly on me than Peter Sagan though. . .

He was talking about Sagan being 'no gentleman', because he excessively celebrated his Seraing stage win after wheelsucking Fabian. That sounds more reasonable than Canc 'hating' on Sagan for having a wide array of victory salutes.

Cancellara is whining. He should just win himself, in which case Sagan won't be able to display his victory salutes.
