    Has the previous years winner ever sucked this bad

    I was hoping Cuddles would get into a groove but now its just getting painful to watch as he can't keep up with his doms.

    Many winners don't look as good the following year.
    Study some history.
    It's not that uncommon.

    You have grasped that this thread is about Evans, right?

    Learning who won last year would have been equally helpful...

    Carlos Sastre wasn't even in the picture in 2009.
    "I just googled triple crank set and i see what your saying. this bike has 9 of those "cranksets".
    "They are showing [the TDF of Versus] at 5 different times in the day. It doesn't say which one is the live one."

    Yeah that's the one I was thinking of, but I couldn't recall the year and was too lazy to look it up.

    I thnik with a little work I could find one who didn't make the top 10 (No work at all if we include those who dnf of course).

    But for now how does 10th place 52 minutes and 56 seconds back sound?

    The 1998 winner did not compete in 1999 becaseu the course did not suit him.

    But in 1998 Pantani not only won both the TDf and Giro but also picked up the KOM in hte Giro and if I remember correctly barely missed it in the TDF.

    Never finished the TDF after that and his best result inthe Giro was 14th. He had a couple of DNFs in both the Tour and Giro.
