    I saw the interview. He didn't say Nibali was attacking HIM. He said he didn't understand why Nibali was attacking.

    More interesting was the three interviewing Tinkoff. Roll asked if he had...

    Your remarks cherry pick the arguments to substantiate your position. The sequence is what's important; you ignore that. The first hill stage he looked tired. Every hill stage since then he seems to...

    The point is, as Bob Roll always says "If you don't go out in the lead you will never win"..and that's exactly what's happened to Sagan repeatedly; he didn't win. And that's what will happen every...

    Funny how, at almost every intermediate sprint Coquard jumps out ahead and then looks directly at Sagan as if he's shown Peter who is who...then at the finish line Sagan creams him repeatedly. He...

    And that has WHAT to do with the OP's question? The 2014 Tour de France. I also noticed a shot at that finish line with AC ahead when Nibali was wiped and now almost miraculously he flies up every...

    One of the point to be made was Specialized might have done what you commented on above before spamming out what turned to be a very poorly written response. I think no one would have commented if...

    It wasn't so much the victory, the Dutch just enjoy their beer. They do that a lot, they're famous for their spots on the mountain climb switchbacks. (Hint..look for lots f orange colors.)

    Just turned 72 a month ago. Last July I bought a Trek FX-7.6 and put 4200 miles on it. I bought a Fuji Rubaix 1.0 six weels ago and have 800 miles on it. Reached 5000 miles this past weekend....

    And all I got was this saddle sore. Now I can rest for the next week or so........darn.

    All the team's management lie. Remember after Froome's first crash? "No problem" when his hand was actually fractured.

    Commissioned an ensign in 1964 I was introduced to that term in flight training in 1965 and, at least then, it was "beyond all reason."

    He head butted another rider in a sprint earlier this year in a similar move and brought the guy to the ground. He's done it before a number of times.

    This statement appears correct; all I can see are recaps for the Giro. To my recollection I believe I watched a stage or two of the Giro on Cycling.tv, but may be wrong. Time will tell....

    Hello from Annandale, VA. I like to ride the W&OD during the week and the Ox road sidepath on the week ends. On the week ends the W&OD is way too congested for me. I got my Trek Hybrid in late...

    Thanks!

    You guys finally have the right idea. What most millenials think of as R&R is really derivative products of 10-30 years later. As a youth in Chicago hungry for more than the top 40 each...
