Plenty of Nibali fans said similar things about AC as well after the Tour. Hopefully those fans can now see things objectively. There is such a thing as bike handling skills - but there is also something called luck. You need both. AC can be a good bike handler and crash. Nibali can be a good bike handler and crash.Andynesz said:

Hope he wasn't effected badly....
Wonderful way of introducing yourself to the forum. Well doneAndynesz said:
This is very true about not doing Lombardy.Arredondo said:To change the subject, confirmation today Nibali doesn't have the form yet. I think it's not to stupid not doing Lombardy, because he wouldn't played a factor in his beloved race.
If he can win Tour, nothing else matters. Does AC or LA ever do anything after winning the Tour?pigoonse said:This is very true about not doing Lombardy.
My concern is still about how happy Nibali is going to be at Astana in the long run. Sure, the money is great but is it worth it? Idk.. we'll see how 2015 goes. Otoh, he has won 2 GT's with Astana.
Maybe he'll fall in love with hunting
That would definitely make him one of the most dynamic riders of this current generation. Would be cool if he did.SafeBet said:I'd be very upset if Nibali ends up being a Tour focused rider. I hope this year was an aberration and he gets back on track next year. He needs to win a couple of monuments before retiring.
What foul play? Both had just come from Tenerife prior to the Ardennes races, so one can assume that they were on a level playing field.maxmartin said:Haha, hope Maxim Iglinskiy confessed to 2012 LBL foul play. So Nibali would have his first monument victory. LOL
I don't see any flaming jealousy in the last few posts? Are you trolling again my friend? PS good to see you back. I see that after abandoning Andy for Froome, you've now abandoned Froome for Nibali. As long as you can bait Contador fans, eh?Netbalp said:
As someone who really really likes / rates Nibali, only just not quite as much as I like / rate Contador, I just don't get this stuff. All things being equal, I'd have liked Contador not to crash out and win, but I don't have a huge aching jealousy about Nibali winning it - indeed, couldn't be happier he did, in the circs. And neither do I get the sense that there are lots of AC fans who are steaming with resentment about it…haven't we all moved on to thinking about 2015 now??Netbalp said:
