Nibali interviewed by Gazzetta (loosely translated by me, I ignored some paragraphs):

"

I: "Will the Giro be your main goal?"
N: "yes, I like the route, and we'll see who'll be my opponents. Btw I saw Froome: he's a whole different person, he must have 6-7 kg more on him." [totally unnecessary shot by Nibbles :D ]

No worry Nibali, SKY advanced training method can shed the weight in a flash and will increase power output at the same time.

I: "How are you relations with Vino?"
N: "Very good. He even invited me at his career-ending party in Monaco. All the cycling world was there, and this says a lot. The 2010 LBL? He didn't just win it. He smashed it. It's a pity that in this world you need little to make a huge turmoil."

I: "What's your thought about Armstrong's case?"
N: "To me he's still Lance, the one who won 7 Tdfs."
First, he joins Astana, and now this. I guess I have to turn the blind eye on him for next year. :(

Lol always like some trashtalking.
We need more of that in cycling.

Wiggo is probably loving his comment about Froomey.

+1, there used to be a lot more trash talking back in the day. We need more of it. Plus it probably creates more competition between the riders, which is always good.

trashtalking is only useful when someone says it with personality and legitimacy. guys like cipo, pantani, ricco. they were the ****

Lol, that's hilarious. And so true. Already in Chrono des Nations he looked like a completely different person. Or rather, he looked like he did pre Vuelta 2011, i.e without veins popping out everywhere...

I haven't abandoned any rider, just yet, and if I do it'll be for a good reason. Btw, now I get you what you meant: 'a blind fan'.

so he doesn't condemn armstrong. yeah very good reason to abandon him. why would you care? as long as he hasn't murdered anyone or your family

I think they invented a new anti-dope test:

Those who still support Armstrong failed it and those who don't support him avoided the test.

He's received 2 GT stages now because someone else tested positive, you'd think he'd care if someone was cheating him.

I: "Who'll make your [training] program?"
N: "I have enough experience to make it on my own."
I: "That's impossible, you need specific competences..."
N: "Initially I'll rely on the team, and on Martinelli's advices, and then we'll see."

Love it! :D

that was one of the main reasons he left Liquigas, since he was bothered by the way he was forced to do races he was not interested in-just for face-value & to please the sponsors....

Now with Vino as manager, he'd be riding even more-but he'll do the ones he pleases...:)
Let's just say that one can read another sub-forum in to the quote :D (Still love Nibbles, but it is quite funny:))
 
Lo Squalo setting the record straight, or is he? ;)
Can't wait for the Giro 2013.

CN: But it wasn't a very clear message against doping, considering everything that has happened in recent weeks.

VN: Some journalists misunderstood what I was trying to say and have forgotten what I've said about doping in the last few years. I've always taken a stand when things happened. I've said that the riders who cheat have to be kicked out of the sport.

I struggle to understand everything that has gone on about Lance recently because he retired several years ago but his Tours have only been taken away now. They should have got stopped him years ago, not after five or six years. That's the point I'm trying to make.
 
lol if you fall for that you are more gullible than a child.


Anyway
