    Giro d'Italia Ladies Race and Lance

    Ok, I'ved watched every stage so far. I liked to watch Lance race for a variety of reasons
    The "protest" lead by Lance has really p'ssed me off. I dont think Ill be so interested any longer

    imho
    Lance your are a big baby stfu and htfu
    The race is 100 years old. Who do you think you are?
    People get hurt racing. Its unfortunate. If you are afraid or have lost your nerve take up golf or ride slower
    Maybe you should be banned from racing for a period of time after that stunt.

    This circuit required explosive bursts. It required riders to get their butts up off the seats of their bikes, and some riders who are not so young anymore apparently don't feel like doing that," Zomegnan told the Associated Press. "Instead, it seems like their legs have become shorter and their tongues longer."

    When asked if he was referring to Lance Armstrong, Zomegnan refused to specifically name the rider who the race had invested so heavily in attracting as the culprit. "I never name people who have disappointed me, just like I don't name girlfriends that have snubbed me."

    Good riddance, IgnorantRich.

    I doubt Lance was the only one who thought the circuit was dangerous. Clearly DiLuca and his whole team felt the same way. And clearly the rest of the peloton felt the same way as they all went along with the plan. Lance is an easy target, and you're lazy.

    I usually enjoy pointing out any of Lance's dubious actions, but I have not one problem with what he did complaining about the stage.

    One of the big problems was right before the stage started the Inter Milan AC team was driving all through the area in an open air bus celebrating thier Italian League victory causing a lot of the course to be cleared in a haphazard manner.

    plus there were cars parked on the course. and vehicular traffic traveling in the opposite direction of the peloton, with only police tape (as far as I could tell from the video) separating the oncoming vehicles from the riders.

    The cars were a result of the city celebrating Their soccer team's triumph. Pretty bad planning on Inter Milan's players behalf.

    It seemed a bit odd that the course was too dangerous to race, yet they did end up racing anyway. However, that shot of the riders coming out of the corner into parallel trolley tracks made me glad it wasn't raining

    The people who wanted to race, raced.

    Everyone else sat up and finished a handful of minutes after Cavendish.

    This was possible as the race was neutralized for GC purposes.

    You, sir, are an idiot. When you finally get good enough to race in the Giro de Italia, then you have the right to a say in the action.

    Nobody really cares if you watch or not, BTW. Just say'n. And, yes, people get hurt racing, it's unfortunate, but cycling is not a gladiator sport. Getting hurt is to be avoided if at all possible. My lord... the stupid fan(atic)s who think they own the race.

    Who really thinks that Lance carries enough weight among the riders in the peloton to declare a protest and force others to follow? Or thinks that his intellectual powers of persuasion are too great to overcome?

    There was obviously a general agreement to protest... there was some disagreement, but not enough disagreement to over-ride the "majority" (however that plays itself out in the peloton's power structure). Lance may have been an instigator, but he did nothing on his own.

    With all of the testosterone driven athletes, I don't think there has ever been anyone in the peloton with the unilateral power to declare a protest.

    Or maybe Lance threatened to throw a pump into the front wheel of anyone who refused to protest... oh wait, they don't carry pumps any more.

    the question i have is would the stage have been protested if horrilo hadn't crashed the day before? i think not.

    lance certainly fancies himseld the big chingon and we've seen a couple of instances of him receiving preferential treatment this year. well the world is in recession and he does generate interest and income.

    all in all armstrong has made racing more exciting this year. i know i'm following more closely....

    I must have been watching a different race, because I saw D. Diuca, the Maglia Rosa, speaking to the crowd in Milan. The action seemed to have the full support of 99% of the peloton.

    Whether or not some flyover boy moron who gets his jollies posting food pics on BF watches the Giro seems rather irrelevant.

    Anti-anxiety drugs (tranquilizers, benzodiazepines)

    Anti-anxiety drugs, also known as tranquilizers, are medications that relieve anxiety by slowing down the central nervous system. Their relaxing and calming effects have made them very popular: anti-anxiety drugs are the most widely prescribed type of medication for anxiety. They are also prescribed as sleeping pills and muscle relaxants.

    Benzodiazepines are the most common class of anti-anxiety drugs. They include:

    Xanax (alprazolam)
    Klonopin (clonazepam)
    Valium (diazepam)
    Ativan (lorazepam)

    They had a 90° bend into a street with tramlines, cars parked on the road and more tramlines parallel and 200m from the finish.

    Yeah, those guys should just HTFU

THE ILLEGITIMATE OFFSPRING OF R600 AND BANANATUGGER? WHAT. THE. ****. YES, RICH, KEEP SATIATING THE APPETITES OF THOSE WHO BERATE YOU - BOTH FIGURATIVELY WITH THOSE WORN OUT DISPLAYS OF "FOODTOGRAPHY" AND FIGURATIVELY WITH YOUR INCESSANT REPLIES. JESUS H CHRIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



    see the difference?

    I'm on the fence with this one. Odds are, without the serious crash beforehand, the matter never would've blossomed into the protest.

    OTOH, I don't think a domestic amateur crit would've been allowed with those course conditions. They were ridiculous.

    And yeah, part of me is thinking lance might be more mouth than legs, but I can't dismiss a little treachery either. Fact is I'm counting on it.


    I sense a thread lock...

    An expression of disdain, along the same lines as 'get lost', 'go and play in the traffic', etc.

    Origin

    This is sometimes used with the intention of meaning 'go and beat/whack sand' - with the back of a shovel or similar. That's not the original meaning though, as is made clear from the longer and less-often used version of the phrase - 'go pound sand up your ###'.

    The phrase originated in the US and although common there, especially the midwest states, it isn't frequently heard in other countries.

    The version 'go pound salt up your ###' is also sometimes used, presumably to heighten the image of discomfort.

    It may well date to the early 20th century. That version was certainly well enough known in the US in 1969 for Max Yasgur to have used it when arguing with local dignitaries over his bringing the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival to his farm in Bethal, New York, saying:

    "Well, you can all go pound salt up your ###, because come Aug. 15, we're going to have a festival!"

    There's also a less vulgar version, 'go pound sand in your ears'.

    Here's an entry from the Southeast Economist, Chicago, 1948:

    "From her store of memories Mrs. Mary R. Stuart of Harvard Ave, perpetrator of this column of sayings of wisecracks popular in the 'Oh yeah?' era, recalls that 'go pound sand in your ears' meant to soft-pedal the noise."
