    Il Gazzetta reports Simoni has provoked anger amongst other riders for attacking for the win again
    today. "Cannibal" says the Gazzetta headline; "If he continues like this he will make many enemies,"
    says 2nd place Pelizotti.

    I guess if you're strong they respect you, but don't push their face in it or they piss back. Too
    bad they can't talk with the legs.

    If a professional cyclist humiliates or angers enough of his peers, eventually they will
    make him pay.

    Cycling is different than most other team sports in that all the teams are competing on the "playing
    field" at the same time. In football, baseball, hockey, soccer, et al. you get one opponent at a
    time - even then it's not a good idea to give the opponents "bulletin board material". In cycling,
    it's different, they can gang up on one team or rider. Payback is a bitch.

    So what do they say about Petacchi? or Armstrong?

    Eddy would be proud.

  4. The dope is making Simoni more nuts than it ever made Pantini.

    Here, here!

    What did they have to say when Simoni was kicked out last year while sure to win?

    If they can't talk with their legs then they ought to just shut up.

    Here's hoping that Simoni wins the TT as well.

    Simoni-"At the beginning of the stage, I wasn't thinking about winning today. But when the fireworks
    started, I thought that it was time to go, and that I wanted to take back what had been taken away
    from me (last year). So I didn't care about anyone else, I just walked my way and won. Last year
    they (other riders) wanted me to leave the race, and today I took this win, that belongs to me,
    nobody else but me. I didn't want to make any gift. Nobody did it to me. Neither did I want them to.
    I don't like to steal victories. If anyone wants to win a stage, all he has to do is go fast".

    Four Frigos weigh barely more than one William Perry. --sk
