You are comparing a Giro where Sergei Gonchar ended up second to a Tour de France win?Wallace and Gromit said:Lordy. This is hard work...
For the last time, I'm not defending Sky, Wiggins or anybody. I'm simply pointing out that Wiggo has demonstrably superior aerobic capabilities and recovery powers than McGee based on their 2004 Olympic IP performances and asking why these capabilities and power could not transfer to GTs for Wiggo, when they clearly did for McGee.
Wiggo's current form might have come out of a medicine cabinet, but you are being completely unconditional in stating that it does. Thus, it falls to you to explain why Wiggo couldn't demonstrate a similar level of GT performance to McGee in cycling terms. You've concluded it isn't possible. Please explain why.
I am not saying you are defending Sky, you believe or seem to believe Wiggo's transformation. I don't.
For your info:
You shouldn't make the comparison then, totally incomparible. No offence intended and congrats with the kidWallace and Gromit said:Great. The standard fallback position of those who can't construct an objective argument - ask how long the other poster has been following road racing. Since 1982 as it happens and I didn't see the 2004 Giro as my second daughter had just arrived and we were in the throes of moving house, so apologies for resorting to a bit of Googling to confirm McGee's performances. I did, however, see ever pedal rev of the IP later that year.
For your info, I didn't see the IP because I have no intrest in BC
