And all great competitors do it: give great credit to the best guy in the sport they beat. Only to indirectly give praise to themselves. :P

isn't he ADHD or something? illnesses apart, kinda reminds me of granpa Simpson's story-telling..

Believe he has ADD, I think it was mentioned in the interview which would quite logically explain his "style"
Looks like I made a new 90 Proof friend

Yep he does have ADHD.

I think a team time trial around the champs sprinting circuit would be neat. We would see incredible speed. It would be a test of who can bring the most men to the end of the race, possibly prevent people from dropping out. It would also bring some unpredictability to the results and keep people fighting to the end.

It is time we brought cycling in to a new exciting era. So lets have them ride unicycles up alp de huez in there underpants smoking a pipe team TT. It's the only way forward. :thumbup:

I like his point on AD"D". It's not really a disorder, but rather a characteristic. We only consider it a disorder because society wants us to be such mindless drones.

It's normal to feel restless sitting at a desk when you could be outside running and riding.

Who will prepare Team Sky next season, presumably Ferrari instead?

It means Sky won't be able to ride 'tempo' with 4-5 guys up HC climbs anymore. :thumbup:

They won't win the Tour next year either.

Leinders was't that influential in their prep, sorry haters.
Don't take me too seriously. The only person that doesn't hate Froome.

Pearl Izumi for clothing and 3T for handlebars. I asked about helmets, but he didn't know :x
He said Ochowiz takes care of everything form the US, so he should prefer something american. Giro?

Sky seemed to have got away with using a doping Dr . I am amazed that people seem to think it's ok for Sky but not ok for anyone else . Contador his a cheat for eating some meat but it's ok for sky to hire Leinders .
Sky fans look at the results look at the timeline sky hired Leinders . It cannot be defended .
You don't hire Leinders to stick a plaster on your sore toe .
