i see Sergio Heano recovered well from his 'Altitude Nativety'..........

Geraint Thomas won the Paris Roubaix as a junior so it only natural that he turns into a GT contender at the grand old age of 29/30, I mean isn't that what Wiggins did ;)

Thomas always had the engine but it has taken Sky 6 years to find it and harness it for GTs.
so
if it took 1,5 years it is too little time (Froome 2010 to August 2011)
if it took 6 years it is too long (G. Thomas)

non siamo mai contenti
:D
joking ;)

Wrinkley, you must be hiding in the corner going, WTF, Thomas's performance must even make you wence!!!
No, no wencing or even wincing. I celebrate and if you think he was not a genuine prospect and it was not a natural progression I suggest you consider his palmares. I am not about to repeat them, so take the trouble to look them up on Wikipedia if you need to.

You come across as an intelligent, honourable sort and if you think that "G" dropping Contador on a climb at the business end of a week long tour is normal then I fear that cycling and sport really has no hope. Seriously, today's result puts cycling in the realms of wrestling. British blind faith is no excuse. Farcical.

So you think Contador is the same operator he used to be? I don't think he can do what he used to, but that's another story. And don't forget G was fifth overall last year despite supporting Porte and also crashing on stage 6.

His career trajectory predicts nothing like what has happened in the last 2 years, take off your blinkers and see what a joke Sky has made of of cycling... If Sky was Russian you would be laughing at them, make them British and you cheer on waving the flag. Sky cycling is a mockery and you know it ... (You're too smart Wrinkly to be taken for this charade)

Your doubtful and somewhat mixed compliment is very kind but I reserve the right to my own opinion and to decide who I doubt and who I don't. I don't particularly doubt Sky despite all the massed Clinic views but I don't need to justify it. I only bothered to reply because I saw you thought it would be fun to wind me up. Now I have something else to do so cheerio for now. :)

Back during the Blue Train domination, the USA was full of enthusiastic cycling fans who knew that cyclists dope but who insisted that LA and the Blue Train were "clean" - the real deal. Their interest in cycling began with Armstrong and ended with Armstrong. Sky - SSDD, different country.

I fail to see why that stage is even relevant :rolleyes:

I can't wait when Sagan drops Nairo on a HC climb to hear Sky fans logic on that :)

*very unlikely to ever happen, of course

Why would any Sky fan even respond to that comment? What's it got to do with Sky? If you want to make a comparison of another Sagan-esqe Sky rider dropping Quintana then fine; put Swift dropping Quintana into your baiting equation.

But like you said "very unlikely to ever happen" so logic is safe for another day.

Have you bothered to read the Quintana thread?

Have you read the Sagan thread?

Can you point to where lots are arguing they are clean?

This is cycling and can you point to where the 'culture of doping' has been quashed, by say consistent, repetitive, rigid and vigorous independent testing or to other reasons the culture to dope has abated?

29 year old cyclists starts climbing like a mountain goat as he demonstrated his ability on the track for years.
