    After yesterday's abandonment of the Tour of the Mediterranean with less than a mile to go, Robbie
    McEwen told reporters, "I figured that since I couldn't bugger that pony I'd just stuff it."

    Lotto-Domo made to look the fool for a spoilt child.

    The attitude doesn't suit you, nerd. Or anyone. And the answer: Stefan van Dijk, in Qatar.

    Whatever that means (is it lower class, uneducated ozzie speak?)
     
  6. Yup. Often the pony is replaced by a sheep for accuracy. Who cares? It's February. Tour of the Med
    is a warm-up race. STF

    Just remember that Peter Van Petegem is on that team and a hell of a lot better rider than McWhiner.
    Hell you'd think that if he didn't feel good he'd ride in the pack like every other great rider from
    years past. Australia has a load of really good racers but they sure have more than their share of
    spoiled little children that stop just short of the finish line. I hope Graeme Brown kicks some
    McEwen butt this summer.

    I guess it's similar to "screw the pooch".

    When you "screw the pooch" it means you "fucked up"

    Robbie means If he couldnĀ¹t' "keep it up" he would not waste any more effort.

    I'm not even going to explore that one.

    It is always amusing when there is competition for the limelight.

    Who exactly are you referring to Tom? Yeah McEwen whinges. But I don't think he has spat the dummy
    'cause his team wasn't picked for the tour, retired, then made a comeback to win the worlds. Or
    ridden to the finish of a Vuelta stage then stopped before the finish line.

    As far a Brown goes, he may be talented, but he gets my vote for rider most likely to have his block
    knocked off at the finish of a race.

  14. I've seen Graham chop Robbie in a couple of finishes. Most notably last year's Geelong bay series.

    Anyway, I want Aussies to win races. I don't watch a bike race to see some 'nice' blokes going
    around. I can go to the pub for that.

    Here's hoping for a better tour from the Freckle.

    Watch it buddy! Never heard of Peter Van Petegem? top20 in the uci ranking since several years,
    winner of the tour of flanders 1999, tree times the Omloop Het Volk and one of the main challengers
    for Museeuw in this year's classics.

    No, no Robbie is a nice chap. This stupid decision doesn't change that. He got a blame of the team
    directors and he made his appologies. He knew what he did was wrong and not fair to his team mates.

    These teamates (from cyclingnews) ?

    "It is true that the Tour Med was a sizzler," admitted Sergeant. Nick Gates quit the race on
    Stage 2 and on the next day the seven remaining Lotto-Domo riders were dropped by the
    peloton in the short 60 km morning stage. Then Robbie McEwen abandoned the race right near
    the end of stage 5.

    Sergeant has gone into damage control mode following the Med. But it's easy to be critical and
    forget this is still Feb.

    I like PVP, but he hasn't won something big in a while. He did make the break at RVV last year, and
    he was flying for a week or so when he picked up some smaller wins, he might have a good Worlds.
