So let´s assume he is 32...DanielsDad said:Maybe Horner is cheating by lying about his age and he's only 32.

Is that normal? That was before his long rest - correct?
Looks like this:
Stage 10 was:
Anyone know what his Stage 10 VAM was? I wish he would upload it.
Haha well yes. Obviously it is ridiculous....zigmeister said:"I found it a bit to go, since I did not expect that Horner would be a serious contender for the top positions in the standings. The level he had, after all, never shown before in his career and with great standings guns as Rodriguez, Valverde and especially Nibali on the start list in Spain, so I gave it obviously makes no sense that Horner should be able to compete against them in a very mountainous Vuelta after so long term damage and break from racing."
Ummmm...Mr. Author...Horner finished 35 seconds behind Rodriguez at the 2010 TDF in 9th place, 2 places behind...who is doped now? So apparently he has performed at the same level of the "other clean riders" mentioned.
Waiting for his article about Jens next. Not sure how it is possible for a guy his age also to lay down a massive 800w for 30 seconds while attacking and trying to break away...wow...that is serious Cat 4 power there.

... still it never happened pre-Epo that a rider in this age wins or podiums for the first time in a GT.
That Horner thing at age 42 is the most ridiculous sports performance ever. Above LA, Rijs, Rominger, Ben Johnson...

please desist with trolling and baiting by introducing off topic...heaven forbid...Sky and especially the Dawg. This thread is about another Chris, lets keep it that way
Rodriguez outclimbed Horner on every climb that mattered in that Tour.zigmeister said:Ummmm...Mr. Author...Horner finished 35 seconds behind Rodriguez at the 2010 TDF in 9th place, 2 places behind...who is doped now?

Could you clarify this?JOAO11 said:For me the Horner must be doped in his career because he never did anything, and now begin to make great results? I think this is strange, and I think he could be just as dope is because for the year, or in two years, should already be out of cycling.
Yes.Horner in all career never was a guy like Contador who since young win stages, tours and more and mora. Contador in all career never use some "doping" (except 2009) and he always was a excelent rider (this to prove that a good cyclist who is in her 30s, is also in his youth).therhodeo said:Could you clarify this?
Thank you and WOW!GazelleFormula said:Chris Horner ----- USA / RadioShack -- | 23:25, 18.78 Kph, VAM 1799 m/h, 6.08 W/kg
That's why his domestic results are more representative of his potential, both early and later. Almost every Euro team that hired him intended that he shepherd the Team Stud in the mountains. Hard to get a stage or GC finish with that job description. Contador was given pretty free reign early on and "responded" with results. Armstrong was one of the few career obstacles he faced within a team.The Hitch said:Aye, but he also lost lots of time having to drop back to Armstrong on Morzine and also further babysitting duties in that tour i think.
