    that makes me want to go out and do sprint drills.
    It never looks that fast from a head on shot but from the side or at an angle

    "Can't beat me."
    Gold

    Magnificent lead out from Rodreguieiz. See McEwen have a look and try and cover for him so he'd still run a place. What arrogance. Excellent

    +1. Great video/editing/soundtrack.

    The astonishing strength of McEwen's sprint is underscored by the fact that this 'and McEwen comes out of nowhere to win again!' stuff is because he's always 2-4 bikelengths BEHIND the leadout and he STILL beats them all to the line time and again. His accelleration is currently unmatched in the sport.

    sorry, but i can't join this love in. never realy liked the guy. the fact that he can never say 'the best man won' when he loses is a good part of it.

    I didn't say I loved McEwen. I said he's FAST.

    And he is.

    By the way, many of the pros and some of the amateur fast guys in bicycle racing (the ones I've personally known) come off as complete DICKS. Sort of goes with the territory to one degree or another in my view.

    So being slow like me is EXCELLENT. I'm SUCH a nice friggin guy.

    Must be a New York thing.

    Most of the ones I know personally or have met (inc a few world and olympic champs) are ok.

    Normally I sleep with them before making a determination, then I rate there performance on a scale of 1 to 10.

    Quite a few have stayed at my house or been for dinner - or I've trained with them or raced them - so don't worry about whether or not I've just said hello or not. . Theres a fair few who are arseholes too, but you get that anywhere in life.
