Hey assfaces,

"Supergroups" = rock bands and not cycling teams.

You win 191 races by sprinting faster than everyone else due to superior
genetics. Races that come down to field sprints on pancake flat courses
are relatively immune to ambush by competing race strategies.

Surely you don't believe that Allesandro Pettachi is also a superior
race tactician?

Ask 100 people in a U.S. shopping mall who Mario Cipollini is and you'll
be lucky to get 1 person to say they do.

Never question magilla. It's like holding a discussion with an idiot. Cipo
was one of the better strategists though you have to admit when you have
talent and speed like his that strategy is a great deal easier to plan.

who alexander ovechkin is, but he signed a $124 million dollar
contract.

I do not know. Speaking for myself, no. I have a working class bias, and
am disposed to respect bicycle racers that reach the high levels for making
the most of their gifts.

I note that qualifying `egregious' with `rather large' is redundant.

Yeah, the next thing you're gonna tell me is Carl Lewis was a great
strategist too.

You people are delusional.
