    Try writing anything that suggests Armstrong was less than 10 times as good as the next guy or even hints that he took drugs and the avalanche of vitriole begins the moment you post.

    When it comes to lacking objectivity, septics stand out like dogs balls.

    ""What a load of cobblers. I guess you are one of those flag waving drools who automatically hero-worships any compatriot who achieves sporting success.""


    Not at all. Loving cycling as i do, ive watched him for 10 or so years and followed him all the time. I respect the guy and appreciate he's the best cyclist in the world. Who has fought drug cheats, an outstanding CSC team, and been totally ripped off in TT distance this year. The guys a fkn legend already i think, total heart and courage....how can you not respect that.....i guess thats what im complaining about overall.

    Riight. I suggest that you take a look at the threads on that topic - there have been a couple this year, and plenty last year. So you realize that you come across as no better than the people whom you are bashing?

    I'm an American, and last year, I was rooting for Vino and Rasmussen, not the Americans or the American team. This year, I'm rooting for the Russian. And in the Armstrong days, I was rooting for anyone but uni-ball.

    Morons who are so blindly whipped into a nationalistic fervor are part of the reason we go to war so readily.

    Cyclist as a whole are maligned and criticized in the sporting world these days.
    Cycling has taken a lot of crap lately and maybe it deserves it, but cyclist are generally not payed as well as the big boys in some other sport are but take as much crap if not more.
    I train on a bike and know a small fraction of what is like to go out day after day and have your a** seated on a narrow piece of toture for hours at a time.
    I have ridden category HC's and got my butt kicked. I can't imagine what it is like to go for three weeks day after day.
    On that I respect anyone that can prepare enough to ride this race and finish it.

    In that case, who are you rooting for this year? I will make a lot of money betting against him.

    I never really had anything against australians until I saw how adamantly they all defended Evans. Figured the whole lot must be like him....needless to say, not much respect for anything from that place anymore.

    I see that you are coming to a well-informed conclusion regarding Australia.

    There are always going to be some like that, just like there are some diehard American Lance fans, who will never believe that uniball was doped to the gills. Or the French's love affair with Virenque (though the man did have some flair). I think plenty of them feel the same way about Evans' riding style as we do. It's just that some of the blindly nationalistic diehards are very vocal.

    ahhh yes, another typically 'informed' seppo comment!...you don't respect us?..fark no, well that's it...close the doors boys, turn off the lights...all line up & we'll go jump off a cliff...didn't ya hear?...some seppo doesn't respect us.....& after all the respect we typically hold that nation in?...I'm hurt!

    Evans is probably rooting his dog. That's why his attitude stinks.
