Whatever. Olympic gold medalist, world champion and current world record holder in team pursuit. Rettenbachferner. I'm sorry, but it just messes with my cycling paradigms. Though I guess they've been in need of revision for a while now.

But I'm looking forward to seeing Lasse Norman and Rasmus Quaade dominating on L'alpe.

Some Sky fans defend their riders like they can believe in anything, any transformation, any cleanliness. But the thing is they actually don't, they believe a lot of riders are dirty in the peloton, they hate many riders who are in fact not as much transformers as theirs. It's just Sky do what others don't and don't do what others do all the way.
Nobody on this thread has said Thomas is clean since yesterday's ride. The obsession with these imaginary 'Skybots' keeping these threads alive are the funniest things about the clinic and the reason why this place has kept me entertained for so long.
Haha good post, just skimmed back the last few pages and there's no-one person saying Sky is clean, just endless people moaning about them and 'The Brits'. Same old story.

G is the new Froome who was the new Wiggins who was the new Armstrong. C'est la Vie.

Agreed. Quite an extrapolation from results of a single stage raced without the vast majority of the best climbers in the world. (Also not an indication of a clean rider either.)

So we have this but everybody is talking only about Sky,G.respectively.Of course the other guys guys were powered by pure talent and will to the summit.It doesn't matter,the clinic is still the most hilarious part of the cycling news.
Yeah, but the other guys don't belong to team who want us to believe they are clean in the face of hiring Leinders and it's all done on nice pillows and flavoured water. That's why the Sky thread is as big as it is.
So the size of this thread is justified by Sky PR stunts :eek:

No such posts exist, not a single one. Maybe I blocked all these imaginary 'Skybots' and forgot about it.

I think this page sums up why this thread is so long: bickering.

At least you have a model for G, since being world class on the track counts for nothing on the road, apparently.

It really doesn't count for much, because only a handful of countries take track cycling seriously. The vast majority of decent riders from all the major cycling nations have had no interest in a track career.

Plus, of course, the fact that a 4km pursuit has only a very little crossover with climbing a HC mountain.

Thomas Gerrans just never was that focussed on road racing, the track was his thing for ages. Now, in a non - Olympics year he switched his focus to being a TT'er and a mountaingoat. That's all.

No wonders for a man with his skills and dito admiration for Armstrond.

32,950 posts, that means 16,475 are racist. Can you link 20?
 
The implied comparison with Wiggins isn't a good one. Thomas could always climb reasonably well (not like an actual climber, not for a GT top 15, but reasonably well. Stout GT top 30 material). Wiggins was 100% an autobus passenger.

Do you think that equates to what he did yesterday?

He won Fleche du Sud as a junior.
Agreed, that is the prelude to greatness ;)

He absolutely isnt a bad rider but after London he really transformed. Must be the altitude training and stuffies.

What I can recognize is stupidity, and it's emanating from your posts in spades.
