No, I genuinely am sorry if I did. You're clearly a big fan of Sky.

You didn't. But for my part in this little tiff, I'm genuinely sorry that I hurt your feelings by highlighting the contradictions in your argument. I didn't realise you would take it so personally.

(And actually, I quite like Orica.)

You don't need to put on a brave face big boy. It's ok for men to have emotions too.

It's odd though isn't it Tony - you complained when Sky didn't race on the Champs Elysees and you complained when they did race in Madrid. Is there any reason why? :noidea:


Sorry guy, I can't remember having complained that Sky didn't race on the Champs Elysees !? Why should I have? maybe I have Alzheimer already if so I am a big fan of Sky/ Froome

I watch cross to see craziness like this, superb skills.

Sagan should try a cross race this winter, I am sure the outcome would be similar to when he tried MTB at the Olympics. But would still be great to watch.

Yes I was thinking about Sagan also! He would certainly make the whole thing very "entertaining" :thumbup:

VDP is entertaining enough in cross, I serious think Sagan would get blown away on the first lap.

Sagan vs VDP would be insane! Since both are amazing in the field and mtb.

You wanted them to try and steal third from Bardet. Despite the fact that racing for GC on the final day against accepted etiquette and racing for points is what the final day is for. It comes across as a serious case of confirmation bias.

What's with all the focus on cognitive bias?
