It must be frustrating that he can't win every race! :-)

Still, he's got the rainbow strips which are like a big target on his back. Getting a handful of wins even if he has ten 2nd places is still a great year for a pro rider. He's got nothing to complain about. If he snags a monument and the green jersey it will have been a fantastic year for him.

All well and good.

The phenomenon PS doesn't exist in a vacuum, folks.
Poignant observation there. Sagan vs. (insert arch-rival here) is very, very good for the business of Pro Cycling.
So is it not possible that certain interested parties have no problem with more "pre-fight banter", much like the pro boxing model?
After all, we're a little short on sponsors these days. You may not like it, but that's where this is all headed. A new PR media campaign for Pro Cycling, courtesy of that front group commonly known as the UCI.
The UCI couldn’t organise a PR media campaign if their life depended on it! If anyone’s to blame it’s the bike manufacturers :lol:

That’s a certainty? He didn’t last year

It's a miracle, I can post.

I set an alarm to wake up and watch Milan-San Remo. I'm glad I was rewarded. Fantastic attack and win by Nibali.

The problems probably have something to do with the new layout? I cannot change from old to new at least..

He is simply awesome to watch, especially in the classics. Always attacking, always taking a chance.

He's not going to win any other way so may as well give it a go.
