roadhouse said:i watched the milan-san remo 2009 race last night and saw that (along with Cavendesh's remarkable sprint finish) but Lance was saying that it was a training ride for astana for the most part (something the narrators of the race on the telly said it was for most riders) and definately a training ride for himself, saying that it was too early for him at that time to be back in shape to win anything. things have changed and i'm guessing top 20 this time. either way, that is one of the best races course wise i have ever seen. first time for me last night and very much looking forward to it on March 20th.

roadhouse said:i think it has to do with all races revolving around the Tour De France but yes, they (the narrators) were saying that it's considered a training ride/race. they said the same of ToC and TDU too.
mattp1975 said:Milan San Remo a training ride...who were these narrators?!

You have no idea what are you talking about road. Stop trolling this forum with your Lance rubbish.
roadhouse said:roadhouse> andrija.
no lance rubbish and definately no 'trolling' on my part but i can't say the same for you by the looks of it, Andrija. the subject of lance finishing 125th was brought up by jamie, not i, i just answered with what i had and i do just so happen to get the fact that the Tour De France is THE Greatest bike race in the world, the last of the season and so it makes sense that all beggining of the season races are considered training races none other than by the riders themselves so quit posting just to post just because you might not agree especially if stupid is all you're gonna put in. if i wanted that, i'd respond to ______.
mattp1975 said:What about the world road champs in September, I'm not sure if you have the slightest idea about bike racing.
roadhouse said:think what you want, you are free to do so but that means that Phil Ligget doesn't know cycling as he as well as the many others who consider the Tour De France the pinnacle of all things road racing nor do the narrators who are ex racers or the current racers themselves, their team and coaches.
you shouldn't be taking it out on me, try them.
mattp1975 said:Sorry roadhouse I didn't realise you are so sensitive but you really set yourself up for it!
