ok. i see. anyway had enough of Wigans for now. I have a big question over his 4th in TdF'09 was it legit, doubtful.Barrus said:

Wiggins - First under would be Mark Cavendish, last under would probably be someone like Carlos Sastre.
Schleck and Contador's powerfigures have been covered in another thread, but I believe they were around 6,0-6,2 W/Kg.The Cobra said:The only interesting thing for me was Wiggins saying his FTP this year was 6.3W/kg. If Wiggins was at 6.3 and getting killed in the mountains what the hell is Contador and Schleck at, 7W/kg?? I was under the impression that anything over 6 was suspicous.
I thought he would say Lemond because the one of the few times he got asked something by the British Media it was, what was the greatest moment in cycling or something to that effect, and his answer was Greg Lemond beating Laurent Fignon by 8 seconds.hrotha said:Somehow I doubt saying "LeMond" would have been a PR disaster...
Not everything has to do with doping.
He couldn't cope with the heat. British trait. I've been on training camps with riders who happily push 375 Watts for an hour on training rides in the UK who were blowing up trying 300W up a 40 minute climb in the height of the Southern French Summer.maltiv said:Schleck and Contador's powerfigures have been covered in another thread, but I believe they were around 6,0-6,2 W/Kg.
The 6,3 W/Kg Wiggins is talking about was probably a test done while almost completely rested, so it seems legitimate. He doesn't say anything about the length of the climb either.
I think he pops in, if not in person, he may well send his wife inThe Hitch said:Mr Wiggins, do you read Cycling News Forums? If not Team Sky Fans has been wasting his time
Ditto. If riders have the "its all about the tour" attitude the british public will also have an "its all about the tour" attitude :/The Hitch said:Im disapointed by his answer to the Giro. At least say that its a very important race rather than just dismiss it ffs. Lost a bit of my respect. The top 5 at this years Giro are bettergt riders than Wiggins.
