SpartacusRox said:I think it was just you. But more concerning for me was the way that Schlecklet went backwards on that climb. He is supposed to be the second best climber in the world. 6 weeks out from tdf and he has guys who aren't even climbers riding away from him.
Guys on here have been going on about Armstrongs form but he is showing more form than a lot of guys based on todays stage.
How clueless are you?
When was the last time Andy Schleck showed form in a stage race, prior to the TdF?
Sixth in a stage to Verbier in the 2008 Tour de Suisse, finishing behind esteem climbers Sergei Ivanov and Stijn Devolder.
I can't find another example of Andy Schleck showing scintillating pre-TdF stage race form. Look how mediocre he was in Switzerland last year, two weeks out from the TdF. My memory is foggy, did he end up beating Armstrong that year?
Granted, aside from the race immediately prior to the TdF (Dauphine, Suisse), the same could be said about Lance Armstrong - but that's not the point you're trying to make.
Why don't these banned trolls at least try and sound like they are a tiny bit knowledgeable?
