Who are the best/worst bike handlers in the peloton?

Page 2 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
Basso was painful to watch at the beginning of his career, one of the worst bike handlers I've ever seen.
He's still nowhere near good, but at least he manages to stay in the peloton thanks to his experience.

Libertine explained it better than I could. It just came across very poorly, but I'm glad to hear it wasn't a joke. I was just surprised that apparently someone (other than Ryo) might try and "joke" about something serious like that.
Ryo mocking a Colombian, I'll include that on the list of 1% most improbable things than could happen on this forum.

Soler wasn't that bad, he won the Galibier stage in 2007 over the Galibier, while defending his lead pretty good on the descent.

Looking forward to someone listing ex-mountain bikers and their explanation of Michael Rasmussen:p

My vote would be for the rider that bunny hopped over Cav at the Giro last year.

Those that should be removed, Fabian took himself out at worlds with an Euskatel move.

best or worst?
because he had his bad days(that time trial was a curse) that doesn't mean he was terrible.far from it

hearing all the stories,i really think soler was unfortunately maybe the worst:( i was rewatching plateau de beille one of these days and he almost crashed in both alberto and rasmussen....uphill!

one of the best:


at least until he came back...

Sagan hunting down Cunego on that descent in Suisse in 2011 was incredible. Can definitely see the Falco comparisons!

Rasmussen was actually a pretty good descender on his various long mountain raids. Soler didn't do so bad on the Galibier descent considering the firepower that was hunting him down. Other than that he did seems accident prone.

Lance is certainly worth a mention too. Aside from everything else it's no coincidence he never seemed to crash.
