Well...thank you!
You won't be liked with such comments anywhere. I guess you lack social skills for even mild internet communication.

Only from recently I'm an active member but what I've learned is that in normal road racing forum people are witty, interesting and the atmosphere is cozy. In clinic things can tend to be a little bit paranoid :eek: but even that can be fun sometimes and who says sports in general didn't give enough reasons for suspicion and skepticism!

Anyways, I guess someone brushed you off and you are a very sensitive person.
You might have a look at this video and HTFU :D
Well said. The video is priceless.
 
Yes,yes,yes.the king has returned with vegeance...well done Alberto:)you are the reason why this Vuelta will be remembered and Bjarne and brad should get a pat on the back for team tactics.That was one of the best stages i have seen in a very long time.Saxo/Tinkoff Bank=Legends....

Just watched the stage and the small You tube clip.
That was a truly epic win Bertie!.
Kudos to the guy who made that YT clip.
You gotta link? Anyone got one? I've searched for it, but I suck at the internet.

"There was a really tough little climb, then that technical descent, little roads - it was terrible, full-on all day. [I remember] the guys' faces in the peloton: I don't want to name names but one guy was almost crying."

****ing hell, why didnt they have live TV on the whole stage ;) Sounds epic tough the way it was ridden
Fantastic to read this. When these harden riders is on the brink of crying you now it was an epic stage. This is what it was like in the good old days (Howard would prefered the mano-a-mano race back then). The bolded part is the very soul of cycling and i am glad to have witnessed it.
 
Nice, looks a bit more than 20 metres after the attack though, 200 ? Probably even more. Anyway still amazed to see everyone struggling in a decimated field. You can see Purito going in the front too.

20 metres is what the description said but it can be 100 metres.

What it's important is that is just after the attack.

How did it happen?

I posted similar info in the Alberto Contador thread, but it's even more appropriate to post it all here.

These videos and the pics below also help to have a better idea of what happened that day, La Vuelta, stage 17, September 5, 2012.
