Sorry, I didn't realise Cav was in the TDU. Whats he got? a ******* tardis! I was quite chuiffed to see two Brit riders start the year well. Deary me, holier than though, lighten up alrroit
You re new here Nick so just a heads up - People get very angry when you put spoilers in threads that are unmarked, you need to give it at least a few days. Keep the race discussions in the race spoiler threads.
We're in danger of confusing passion with incompetence
Thats it, I'm not playing any more, dont get it! Folk write what the fark they like where they like and when they like about doping but racing has to be pigeon holed away. Never really got the logic of these forums before and obviously still dont! Fink I shall stick to the mags! I wanted to share some enthusiasm for two early season wins, just in one place! Seriously what are people waiting for? A telegram from the rider to say how they got on? Carrier pigeon perhaps? Never mind, no need to answer that
It's hardly as though there is extensive highlight coverage for these two races so I'm not quite sure why people are getting so shirty about spoilers. You could even watch the San Luis coverage and not know who won (like the commentators!).

Aye, you could argue specific exceptions for races like San Luis (lower than low profile, based on that outstanding coverage!), but I think the main thing is, everyone's become used to the "House Rule" about always having "SPOILERS" in any thread mentioning race results. Just makes life a little bit easier for everyone, knowing which threads to avoid if you're waiting to watch recorded highlights or similar.
Though it can sometimes be a PITA remembering it, I think on balance it makes for a happier forum sticking to the little bit of forum etiquette - it's not like this is a forum bound by hundreds of stupid little rules. Well, apart from all the unwritten ones
