Rasmussen would get in the GB Team pursuit 4 so it doesnt surprise me that he in track condition can beat a Brad more focussed on road physique by a couple of seconds on this kind of TT

yes I know this thread was a leg-pull but if Rasmussen can lose 10kg and only a little power he will kick a few ar5es on the road
If Rasmussen turns into Jesus Christ he'll rule the world.

Oh come on, there's more backward compliments and awkward flirting going on here then in a bad sitcom. You just don't know how to tell each other how you really feel, thats all...

Blackcat and I will have to console ourselves that you are too busy running the Wigans and Sky wanksite--err, I mean fansite--to share the love. What you see in that badly coifed hipster doofus is a mystery to us all. I am sure there is something attractive about him--not physically of course, but there has to be something. I just cannot see it. Perhaps it is admiration of a good con. I suppose you have to give credit to a blagger who bamboozled his way into a fat contract based on nothing more than a single lucky performance built on the backs of his teammates. That the ungrateful git promptly threw those who helped him under the bus could be seen as behavior daringly too close to that of ambitious colonials. It could be a turn off for many in the Old County, but others might see his boorish behavior as matching the times since their country now sits at the feet of American emperors like a harmless chihuahua dreaming of the days of yore when the world was a much smaller place.

It could be that but I suspect there is something else going on. The clues are there in the signals being sent out by Wigans himself. Although the meaning of the coded signs may escape the understanding of a straight male like myself, I am sure they are not beyond the grasp of Dim. Certainly when Wigans tweets about his balls being rubbed down with warm towels it means something more than the babble of narcissistic tool who is missing a few dots from his dice.

I don't feel that sorry for Dim. The wife is another story. They are always the last to know. It probably won't be not too bad, though. She is certain to have friends who have dealt with a similar and, in England, all to common situation as Dim transitions to his new role as Sky rent boy.

Courage, Dim. Courage!

Awww you used your 4000th post on me.. how sweet :D

You do rather misinterpret me though, its EbH, Geraint and Russ im secretly in love with. Brad doesnt really do it for me, I defend him, but ive got better things to do than actively promote him..

The only ones around here with a Wiggins fixation seem to be you and blackcat.. If you need help i can recommend a good doctor.. ;)

I do, however, object to you using the opportunity to make this personal rather than just a difference of opinion over particular riders. I did not start this thread remember, it was started by Blackcat. I actually think i was very relaxed and humourful in my response to your attempts to windup, I actually think reducing it to personal insults and stepping over the line between joking and offence is rather childish and out of order.

There is absolutely NO NEED whatsoever to make this personal. Its an insult to your intelligence frankly. You are much much smarter than that, you know it, I know it. Stop being a ****.

Sadly this is what happens when someone starts a thread deliberately to antagonise.. It remains good humoured, mild banter, jokes, until someone who simply doesnt know when to shut up takes it to far and turns it personal.

Stop waffling Bro and just cut to the chase already.

Just remember, your 4K mark is coming up. Return the favour.:p

Also Bro Deal. Loved the rider and car post. Contador is more of a Pagani Zonda in my opinion than a Ferrari, but who cares. I don't know which is worse, Lance or Wigans picture. You weren't implying Wigans is due for a course of "off road" antics this season were you? Or perhaps an episode of "crash and burn."
