    Ras has never seen anything close to 69kg... closer to 59kg.

    I love Rasmussen, I do. Aside from his insane scrawniness, he looks a lot like me..(sad to say) so I always root for him. Too bad I suck ass at climbing

    He looks taller that Contador, and MUCH thinner. I'd guess around 100-110 pounds.
    Not too much to say here

    You don't build up angst against anybody, and it doesn't have anything to do with whether or not you like someone. Angst is a state of self-doubt, or dread.

    Did you mean that the peloton has a deep feeling of dread about the Chicken? Or anger towards him?

    As skitchy as he is in real life (I met him and the rest of the RABOBANK team at the Tour of California) I too have always rooted for the climbers, and I'm loving it that he and Contador are in for the 1-2 right now...Plus I work for the bank, and they give me free stuff, so I'm somewhat obligated to root for them.

    I used to like him because he is one of the few riders who would speak his mind at interviews, although it often had a dickish slant. However, after reading his quote about being disappointed that Menchov "couldn't get his ass over the Galibier," I now think the guy's a jerk. He talks like that about his teammates to the media, and then expects their support in holding the yellow jersey?? Whatever. A solid NOPE for me.

    Ive always liked him as a rider, but I dont want to see him win the tour. At this point I want to see Contador win.

    The Dane, who is still shrouded in controversy over revelations of missed anti-doping controls, admitted his Spanish rival had him on the ropes: "I was really on the verge of giving up."

    I've had a soft spot for him ever since his KOM days. Unlike many of you, I find him easy on the eyes..well, when he's on the bike -- slender, boyish, nice pedal strokes. Off the bike, he transforms into a homeless crackhead, especially with that scraggly face fuzz he had going on recently. Glad to see he shaved before his conference today. Just one gal's opinion...

    I don't know him, so I don't have a reason to like him or dislike him.

    But . . . the current allegations for his skipping tests during training . . . when you look at the specifics, they're ugly. I think the guy is very probably dirty and hasn't been very smart in hiding it.
