Probably because you just started watching cycling.

Now climbing out of the saddle = doping. Great.

You know what's an obvious sign of being clean? Staring at your stem all stage long. :rolleyes:

That is not actually the stem or a PC7 that he is looking at. It is an HHU. Holographic Hypnotizing Unit. In Team Sky colors yet. Awesome.


The pillows just weren't working well anymore. Go figure.

Have we seen a single clean victory in pro cycling this year? Would we expect to, given the current makeup of the ProTour team Directeurs Sportifs?

Cadel Evans won a small race a few days ago.

So, can we go on, what time did he ride today?

Is this also the place where we can hope loudly that a certain rider pulls a certain move named after the guy who crashed before the very same climb 3 years ago?:rolleyes:

I'm inclined to believe that's a little bit of an overestimate as the other GC guys weren't so far off Horner's pace. Isn't 6.7 completely out of line with what they've all been doing on the other stages?

He put 20 seconds into Purito in the final kilometre. He is also now the fastest ever cyclist to ascend Peña Cabarga. At 41 years old.

Wait, did Horner just do 6.7w/kg? Is that calculation real?

Dr. Ferrari's model. The other formulas give higher figures, right? I expect one of them might even return a 7 w/kg. :eek:

It was less than 17 minutes, not a long effort, but still as impressive as it gets.. I'm hoping he beats Heras record at Angliru.. Wow.

The peloton appears to have gone full genius, and I believe the Clinic predicted this development after Belles Filles last year. Hate to bring up Sky, but seriously, much of the blame is on them. Racist cycling fans and journalists have their fair share as well.
