Well done Geraint on his win! :)

Very pleased for him. We didn't see a lot of him last year because of the Olympics, so hopefully he'll do well in the Classics.

It looks a lot better than the red, white and blue ring.


I can't decide if I like it or not. Looks a bit clashy.


It's better than looking like a former dutch national champion. Or maybe not, but it's more obvious anyway.

I was wrong, it wasn't deleted, it was the wrong link I looked up... here you go, Cyclismasgate http://www.bikeradar.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=40002&t=12832862&hilit=%26quot%3Bmade+up%26quot%3B&start=300

read down to see where the post with the big quote in it from Mr FF says: (and then onwards)

Can't you guys see what low level people are calling the shots here and ruining lifes.

Read what Contador is saying. The guy is a very respectable person.

I'm disgusted.

And didn't he do it in style!!

Possibly because some haven't watched it yet and were trying to avoid the result ;)

So you haven't read the Tour Down Under thread and decided to create a whole new thread?

A word of advice, don't do a thread title like this for any major races!!

Quite. I believe the last person who did this had his hands chewed off by donkeys as punishment.

Yanto Barker is lovely. He could use someone asking him slightly better questions though.
