    Well, this isn't 100 years ago and Gilgert is not his name. http://philippegilbert.com/. Obviously, besides not being able to get names correctly, you also couldn't understand my point.

    This might have to be my nomination for BF hall of fame. The sheer conviction of his belief is admirable, though inexplicable.

    Listen folks. Our obviously trolling friend made a typo. He admitted it but also tried to make a light joke about how PG's name may have been spelled 100 years ago. Please stop feeding him and obsessing over what was clearly his attempt at humor.

    Dude, the whole idea that he may have had a motor in his bike was preposterous; are you starting to get a clue now? Go back and read the thread when your done with your proof reading for the day.

    Dude, I was the one saying it was preposterous & giving reasons why. You were the one calling someone gullible for saying they thought it was preposterous that Cancellara used a motor. And, you called that person's response stupid since he used financial resons why it would not be probable. Why don't you go learn some reading, writing, and comprehension skills before you call someone's post stupid.

    You're digging yourself a deeper hole the more you write. Show me where I called anyone here "stupid".

    Sheer irony. When calling others out, you might want to have a clue about what you're talking about and when to use a question mark.

    The "response" was from Cancellara genious.

    The irony is that both (all) of them are basically saying the same thing.

    Maybe you should write "Cancellara" instead of "his". Maybe you would be able to get your point of cross better with a little training in reading, writing, and comprehension.
