    best so far, between Maggie, Dean and Sutton, is 9th in todays bunch kick.

    No bunch kick wins between Sutton, Farrar, Dean and Maggie this year. Qualified, apart from Dean in 2004, none have been prolific winners.

    But they are not even placing.

    Farrar got a few places in California, and maybe France.

    To be honest the only sprinter out of the names you mentioned that I'd rate is Dean. I see Maggie B as more of a classics man, Sutton and Farrar need a few more years before they start winning group finishes consistently.

    Maybe it's because Slipstream are less concerned about sprinting and more concerned about the GC in most of the tours they've been in. They tend to do well in the prologues which often means they end up defending a leaders jersey...

    Yea, it is because we are ghey. It is hard to sprint when you are checking out the butts of men like Boonen and Robbie. We are just too busy thinking of how we would pound their supple muscular asses like a jackhammer....

    I'm a bit concerned about Robbie at the moment, he may be turning ghey. He's not sprinting well and it may well be because he is checking out man-blurter rather than attacking the finish line. Very worrying.
