As far as your reading comprehension, it seems to vanish when a post points out your mistakes and arrogance. Not surprisingly, you love to tell people right and wrong ("correct"; "incorrect") but you are incapable of recognizing when you are wrong...

This thread is not nearly as fun as it should be.

Please, people. Try harder.

It's funny how the poster Simoni pretty much laid waste to anything you said and you chose to totally ignore it.

With 25k left, Rasmussen and a number of other riders were 3'20" behind the break. He was never "allowed to ride away" and to say such is laughable at best. In fact, it was Popo that rode/paced them all back and past the break. And as the pace kept up, riders were dropped. They didn't allow anything. They couldn't.

Chipcom...I don't think this poster is that old. Thus Simoni's comment about an age limit.

Some of the things out here are laughable...see some posters are genuinely interested in learning something, unlike the OP. Which makes many of us laugh.

Many english words ending in "ile" come from french. (something to do with that Norman invasion thing.)

I love it when people talk smack and can't back it up. Especially since they have no clue what they are talking about. But think they do. And keep going.

Is that the best you can do ?
Its kind of sad to see you over react like this. I suppose that's what happens when one of your self-important lectures turns out to be wrong.... Its ok Botto, it happens to everyone. Take a deep breath.

And yeah, I caught on to a post two days late I guess that in your world, that's a sin.... Remind me again, who has an unhealthy obsession?

But he wasn't wrong. And that's been pointed out to your pointy little head in this thread. And all we hear are crickets chirping...which make this even more humourous.

Now, please explain in clear detail how, in that stage Ras was allowed to ride away by the peloton, when he was over 3 minutes behind the break, was paced by Popo, then finished second behind Contador. And got no KOM points until the finish when he got the second place points. And all along that last climb shredded some of the finest climbers in the pro peloton who were puking their guts out to stay in contact.

Or you can just go up in flames...



Can you ride a bike, yet, without training wheels???

This is not coherent. Please explain your point.

I have read the thread, Blaireau's defensive rant to your post (including the odd collusion with Botto over a thread from '06). I was just asking your point.

Boy, talk about reading comprehension. You need to take that class again, o warrior of the road ! You got it completely ass-backwards. Try to read both threads before commenting -- completely.
Thanks for your participation.
