What a great ride from him today. He just cruised off into the horizon while the others were bathing in the mud.

How about Mathieu Van Der Poel? First race with the u23's? No problem.

Ok:

Your argument is invalid.
Period.


I was just giving you shit! Good points, but I don't know why you assume I am "boys" with Joe D. Ridden with him a few times, but never have said we were close buddies.

not long time ago:

and he was right...


Let's take as example the most recent case; according to Scinto there was a rumor inside the whole Giro's caravan about Santambrogio using Epo.
Was anyone talking openly? No, only afterwards.

The article of Wurf is a good read but I dont expect him trowing shit at another rider. Actually I would be surprised by the opposite which is very rare (see Kittel but he did that with a minor rider of a minor team).

Spy sponsor our team and I quite like the screw. Nice looking and really easy to swap out different lenses.

The coverage of China with Phil is so bad. One person commentating is really terrible.

My son is sponsored by Spy and uses the Screw as well. A great piece of eyewear with a lot of options for lenses. I prefer the Alpha myself.

What job does Ricco have?
Bartender? like Cipollini told him to?

@riccardo_ricco You need to come see me immediately. Some things are not for 'do it your self' types. Nice bike, though!

that could be possible too
he's been posting pictures of his Cipollini bikes, and DMT shoes for almost two years now, and he always wears Salice glasses and Giordana kits. and no helmet, never. :roll:
I don't think he bought the stuff himself anyway

You guys are reading into it too much. Probably has a rep friend or two that kicks him spare demo product. Just cuz he is a *f##k* up doesn't mean he doesn't have friends- lots of people have that lovable but horribly stupid friend.
