Does he have tattoos on his hands? Thumbs down for that, tattoos are so 2006.
I would edit this post or move it to the clinic.sartoris said:Paris-Nice + Romandie + Dauphine + Tour + ITT gold at Olympics.
I simply can't believe that. No cyclist has ever been able to do that in a single season. And all of a sudden we have a 32 y.o. ex-pistard "epic rider" who climbs like Contador and TTs like Cancellara and doesn't seem to reach his peak.
The higher he (and Sky) gets, the bigger the fall will be. I'll be waiting for that.
What a shame this sport has become
Same here. I've been fighting it due to all of the above but dude has been bringing it all season and of course deserves all the accolades he's been getting. A dream season he's having. If he decides to continue with this roll he's on by going after gold in the WC and gets it, his season will be legend (it pretty much already is).Arnout said:It's with gritted teeth, as I don't like his personality, his style of riding (well, in TT it's ok, uphill not) and his way of riding (defensive), but what a season for Wiggins. This season's Gilbert and that's maybe an insult to Wiggins.
Take it easy, Arnout. Freedom of speech. Didn't insult anyone. Just because my view is different to yours (which I do respect) you just don't have to act policeman round here.Arnout said:Well I don't. Thing is, if Susan sees this, you won't see this forum for some time.

you made me laugh ! Let's leave it here and have a g'day, mate!Arnout said:Thanks for putting my name in bold, I'm not worthy.
Once again, I don't care about accusations but I do care about your message, because this is disrupting discussions and will attract anti-trolls. I'm not a policeman, I just warned you of the consequences. There is freedom of speech, but this is the same as showing pornography in an elementary school. Well, sort of. Technically, it's not illegal, but it is annoying.

I suppose retiring without defending 'anything' would not be in his nature, but I was conscious of his wish to spend more time at home with his family. Despite my earlier comment, perhaps he would be content to be 'knecht' to Froome next year.argyllflyer said:I wonder where BW goes from here, talk of not repeating six camps in tenerife again pre-race, talk of never beating his achievements set this season afterwards.
Regardless, I just don't see any way for him to keep the motivation, and I don't think he's good enough to get by on talent - rather like Cadel this year.Howard Thomas said:I suppose retiring without defending 'anything' would not be in his nature, but I was conscious of his wish to spend more time at home with his family.

What is the point of doing a TT on a dual carriageway if not to get a nice tow from people going a bit close.Winterfold said:Another amazing day out. Watched at the corner in Cobham then on the big screen once Spartacus had been through.
Hordes of people who were not interested in cycling previously out to watch and Sir Wiggo delivers.
Maybe this means I get spat at less when training, people are more patient with road races, and they dont see how close they can get when doing a TT on a dual carriageway - we can dream eh
