So, what have I missed?

Postby TakeTheHighRoad » Mon Jan 21, 2013 21:12 pm

I've been away since October due to Armstrong related reasons, but with cycling back on the agenda and racing back under way, I'm back to peruse the ramblings of the mad men that make up Pro Race.

Has anything happened in the last two months worth noting, and did anyone care about Oprah?

Cav's fat, Stannard's fat, Gilbert's fat. Boonen's injured.
We hate Rapha so much we can't stop posting about it.
Wiggins is either definitely doping or definitely not doping.
Contador has a range of hilarious nicknames - Contadope, Clenbutador etc etc.
Sky are the evil empire.
No-one has any love for Levi.
We defo hate Armstrong now. Without doubt. For finals.
JTL is getting a lot of LL love.
Griepel won a chipper.

So no. You missed nothing

Yorkshire got the Tour start
The Giro - a race personally blessed by the Pope - will start in Belfast. What could go wrong?
The Vuelta route was designed by someone playing Rollercoaster Tycoon
Greg LeMond and Paul Kimmage got a job selling compression clothing
Sky got rid some people for doping back when people still owned Squarials
Someone got a knighthood for crossing the channel and spanking the French in their own backyard for the first time since 1815.

Fair enough, aren't they always fat and injured?
I don't mind the new Sky kits, but £140 for a jersey?!?
As ever
Contador is a walking nickname
True
Surprising but understandable, any love for George?
Good to know, even the ones who staunchly defended him? Is Aurelio/BB coming back now? Those graphs were all worth it in the end
JTL will be a flash in the pan IMO
Greipel won a chipper wearing a silly hat.

I saw that, very exciting as I'm a Sheffield boy originally. Weird to think roads I rode (as it were) growing up will now be in the TDF.
Oh yeah, that will go perfectly.
Exciting times, the Angliru's in isn't it?
I thought Greg LeMond was gona be King of All Cycling?
Saw some of that around the time of SPOTY.
It's what knighthoods were made for isn't it?

I'm sorry to inform you Rainbow's not on any more,
And Beryl Burton's dead.


First day back at the coal-face and you've put your foot in it there, buster...
