Your incessant whining is deafening and like your hero's inability to keep his fragile emotions in check, getting quite tired. What Valverde's suspension has to do with my post as far as in your estimation is beyond me. My opinion of Evans has been consistent before, during and after the Valverde drama. How a rider physically battling with another rider while wearing the WC's stripes is a good thing, all because the other rider decided to get on the front of the peloton and slow their roll, which is a part of the sport the apparently Evans is ignorant of, IS NOT GOOD FOR THE SPORT.auscyclefan94 said:zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Poor piti is suspended so the valverde fans kick evans! You sound like a broken record actually. In the heat of the moment it would of been easy to think the same thing with the gesink incident. He later apologised and riders showing some emotion is a good thing for the sport that can lack it. IThe Righi and Evans incident was BOTH of there faults EQUALLLY. Really you can't stop someone chasing.
I guess your just another hater....
(the forumites on here who hate me will be coming to get me after this)
As has been explained over and over, it is within the rights of any team or rider whose interest it is for the break to succeed to get on the front and attempt to dictate the chasing peloton's pace. I'm quite certain that you realize this but because it was not in the interests of BMC and Evans for the pace to be slowed thus you choose to conjure up your own peloton rules.
Let's see headbutting another rider, physically assaulting another rider in a girlie manner--yep, that's definitely good for the sport. Keep up the good work Cadel.
Seriously though, Evans was quite impressive in the first half of the Giro where he represented the WC stripes well and showed that he was in fact the strongest rider BEFORE they reached the real climbing. Basso emerged as the worthy winner showing his superiority on the Zoncolan and every mountainous stage after that. Evans fought valiantly and should be commended for his effort. It was a hard, hard Giro with challenging terrain and difficult weather that took its toll on many of the riders and their teams.
It was an epic grand tour that Evans' efforts will play a large part in the retelling of its story in the coming years.
By the way, I for one don't hate anyone on this forum. Just because we have a difference of opinion don't take that as definite sign of dislike/hate. You contribute far more to this forum than I do with your initiating various threads and keeping the discussions going. I personally don't have the free time like I used to to post as often as I would like. Thus I often come in on threads late at night after the discussion has subsided and make my posts then, usually rapid fire one after another.
Try not to take all this so personal (although considering tone of my post at the beginning that might be a bit hard ).
