Probably not the best comparison. NBA players and bicycle racers are two totally different breeds of athlete.

edit; and of course we just learn that "Formula One icon Michael Schumacher suffers 'relatively serious' head injury in skiing accident". Kind of goes against my point!

Every year he wins lots of races.

Lots of talk of Cav being fat so he should win a lot of races?


I am trying to motivate him... Tinkov style. I am sure he is following every post I write. 8)

Cav is a bit of a porker, isn't he!! He is just so damn short that any bit of extra weight shows up quick. Probably being fed chocolate covered strawberries by the lovely Peta daily is going to his midsection....

Layoff: Samu earned those. And the man totally deserves a World Tour ride this year. If not, it would be a blast to see him take a US domestic team contract and ride the national race calendar (a long shot, I admit).

He's a good rider to watch, but for some reason its odd that no one would want him considering that I haven't read that his asking price is super high or anything.

I think he is SURE of a ride for 2015 with Alonso. so maybe he's deciding what to do, If a WT deal comes up ok, if not, he'll chose a Conti team just for this season

Same thing for Horner
