This would mean Fabian is dead, according to Nietzsche.

Okay... does Fabian Cancellara play dice with the universe? I believe he does.

I'm pretty sure Fabian's just the clockmaker who has set the pendulum of the universe in motion.

Though, he probably does buy the occassional scratch off ticket at the local Quik-E-Mart.

I heard that Chuck Norris is so bad, that they use his belly button for a power outlet.

Robbie is still faster than Fabian, but Fabian is possibly shaping up to look like DiLuca in the Giro. You may say he'll die in the mountains but on that note, they tell me he can't sprint.

In Cancellarian Geometry, not only do parallel lines meet, they get it on.

Cancellera didn't sprint to that win. He attacked and got a gap at 750m to go and held it to the finish. That isn't a sprint in my book.

Please! I canít let that go w/o response. No one was better; in terms of range, depth, virtuosity, class. Not even close! Substance over style. Sry Jimi.

It was a sprint, it was just time trial style. The man averaged 35+mph in London so I imagine he can spin close to 40 if he is gunning for a stage win.

Exactly. Very similar to what Vino did in the final stage finish in Paris in 2005.

He can certainly sprint better than any of those other guys...what a huge f-up.

He's a great time trialist...but hold on a sec...he won a 7.9K prologue that was over in about 9 minutes, and he won yesterdays stage with a well timed attack at the end that caught the sprinters off guard....He didn't win a full on sprint.

This after an average speed of about what, 20mph? That was one of the slowest stages in a tour I've ever seen, and a lot of guys were still hurting from the previous day's crash. Hardly even called racing. The only thing he showed yesterday was moxie and smarts.

A bit premature to be calling him God. Wait until some mountain stages and at least one time trial...
