Watching the evening coverage of vrs. I heard 2 things I could hardly believe I heard.
First Bob Roll says Lance is the most prolific stage winner in The Tour de France. Come on, he is not by any definition.
Then I see a repeat of a segment where they say Eric Heiden won the points competition in the Giro! Say what? I even was able to find his Palmares on hte memorie-du-cyclisme site and saw he doesn't have anything that could even be confused with the points competition win.
I had also caught some of the morning broadcast where they did a very good job of pointing out that Thor was hanging with the peloton and even discussed the chances of at least some riders ahead getting caught. Then I watch the evening coverage and Thor never gets mentioned until the final sprint! Whats with that? Then they wonder when was the last time a rider contending for Green picked up points in the mountians. They then said it must be way back. Sorry guys, it was during the Lance era. Zable did it more than once (I don't think on a stage with quite as much climbing as stage 16, but then there are rarely stages with that much climbing and such a long runout after the final climb).
Does anyone else remember these comments? Did I hear wrong?
