I couldn't even lift it!
Maybe you could not lift it because it was affixed to the table by bolts!
All those people that posted about the past great riders who doped. You know by now that all the past great riders doped: name one that did not. Since all them doped to different levels, efficiency and expected results get over it. You don't want to get over it? That is your prerogative and it's not a problem for me and that is all that counts on this forum right? It's all about how Stella perceives you, am I right? Yes I am.
I perceive the you are an ignorant, pompous arm-chair-cyclist who pisses excellence in the morning before delivering your cacophonous message from a top of your throne of cycling justice. That's how you perceive them with no bearing or knowledge of what type of situation they were in. I am a bit more sensitive as to why a cyclist dopes these days than I was in the past. I have grown up a bit on this subject. I'm not glorifying or justifying doping here but I am putting things into perspective from their side of the fence.
In reality each one of them tried to keep up with their competition so that maybe they can keep their job for next years contract. You guys keep forgetting that pro cycling is a job that a cyclist makes his living at it. They do not ride for fun. It's not fun and games. It may seem that way but it really is not.
We'll see what the next batch of talent brings. How will today's Vangarderen, Kittel, and all of the promising 20 year old riders fare against the "new reality of cycling" what ever that may be in the next 10 years.
