King Boonen said:He clearly belongs in here, not least because there has hardly been a raised eyebrow about his performances.
they have to do with the point you were making (that was that there has hardly been a raised eyebrow about his performances)... the eyebrows have already been raised and no one tried to close them This Vuelta have shown a lot of weakness signs for Nibali so no surprise no one posted anything... During the Giro, people posted "Nibs is doping" and the reaction of the clinic was "yeah...".King Boonen said:The thoughts of the posters in the thread have nothing to do with the point I was making. Last posted in before the Vuelta started? That the one?
Do remember how people spoke about Ricco during the 2008 Tour before he and Piepoli were caught for CERA? They were not being nice and some of the things some of the Aussies on SBS said to this day are some of the most disgusting things I have ever heard from sports commentators. This from the same mob who were sniffing LA's jockstrap nonstop and never apologised for their sniveling sucking up. Actually that person, was absent from SBS cycling talk at the end of last year for MONTHS.pugdog said:I can't blame you for your disappointement as a fan, but what makes you think that Nibali, Valverde, Purito et al weren't doped? Why is it unique to Chris and Chris?
Get the bubbly and popcorn ready! Nibali and the Italian team are set to deliver your very wish!!King Boonen said:Only person to beat Sky "the super dopers" procycling at their own game, twice, walked a massively difficult Giro making everyone else look like a chump and almost doubles up with a second GT at the Vuelta, only getting beaten because a fresh doper is quicker than a tired doper. Yet hardly gets a mention in here from people who claim they just want to discuss doping performances, not attack certain riders. That was funny. He'll close the show with a standing ovation if he wins the world's.
Thanks for this nice selection highlighting how spectacular and dominant Froome was this yearFearless Greg Lemond said:I had a couple of laughs:

that was definitely up there as one of the most freakish moments of the year. My favourite part is when he sprints away from Peraud and the other guy. Reminds me of Lance at sestriere.
Of course Jimmyfingers will tell you that sky didnt dominate the stage races this year. What we saw here was Froome only at 80% or so before his tour peak.
