im surprised on how many pro tour level dudes are from luxembourg . I mean smallest country, and sending (what it seems) like a decent amount of dudes to world tour! I heard the tid bit from commentry on how there is a one on ag2r. I could be wrong in this observation though.

is there a list of world tour nationalities? im curious to see what the ratio of pro riders : country population is



edit:

and this bike hits me right in the feelz

Do you criticise guys who write a book professing their innocence and soliciting donations to their legal defense fund, and then admit their guilt (become open about their doping) only to get back at someone who wouldn't hire them?

True, but Oscar is the most recent 2006 tour winner 8)

The modus operandi is for Mr X to criticise those that claim their innocence and those who protest that they are clean.

The mother of the imbecile is always pregnant and all :roll:

He is, I believe, a former Lance fanatic. I guess he feels let down and is ill prepared to look beyond the past. Yet Mr X does seem somewhat selective in those he seeks to question.

Wow! Well that is what you call "judging the chase of a breakaway to perfection" I guess!

No doubt Cervelo's brilliant marketing department will say he would have won on an S5 :)

So, six sprint stages down and three won by other people. Kittel is leaving a lot of 'crumbs'. :wink: Is he simply too big this year to stay fresh for three weeks, or will he come good again?

Assuming he's still tired after the pyrenees I'm starting to get a feeling about Sagan and the Champs Elysees. Any takers for him to finally win one on the biggest stage of all?

I really hope for Sagan winning the last stage. He didn't have luck yet and that would be great compensation :)

I definitely think that Sagan will have a really good shot at the Champs. If for no other reason than he's just been shafted at every chance so far

I like how before the Tour everyone was talking about how Kittel would dominate just like Cav had in the past. Kittel isn't Cav and while a top sprinter, I don't know if he will ever match some of Cav's hauls
