Cycling

Post by Guest on Sat 06 Mar 2010, 19:21

This was an accidental double post of Mitchell and Webb because Firefox crashed and ballsed it up for me.

So I edited it to something just as pointless.

I cycle everywhere. It is fun. And pointless.

And we're the best in the world at it.

Somehow.

Yeah, somehow is right! You would have thought the Dutch would sweep all before them...

Maybe it's because cycling on our roads is quite like a professional cycling competition - dangerous, risky and fuelled by adrenaline. And you're always jockeying for position. So it's probably quite good training!

The exclamation mark tends to suggest you were surprised.

Got caught in the Japan Cup, which is like tampering the ball for a dead rubber JAMODI against the Bangles.

Rogers cleared to race again after it was considered that there was a significant probability that the clenbuterol found in his system came from contaminated meat.

Biggest cover up since Warne/Waugh.

I know you're being facetious, but he'd raced in China the week prior and their meat is very often contaminated with clenbuterol. So, unlike Contador's bullshit, this was at least likely true.

But he's an elite cyclist, after all.

You are implying Warne/Waugh wasn't a cover up?

Exactly after the Contador case you would assume that "elite" cyclists might be a bit more careful.

No, that was imo.

Yeah, some cyclists are careful. Think the British track team and Irish too avoided any red meat in Mexico, which has a clenbuterol issue. Others, less so. That said, with Michael Rogers and his team history... likely as clean as Michael Rasmussen. But Contador's was most likely just a fabrication to avoid suspension, unlike this.

The cynic in me says it might be a good time to overload on clenbuterol when you are in a dodgy country.

13 Aussies contesting the Giro on May 9th. Of them only Evans, Rogers & Lancaster are 'names' & none are likely to win.

Good start by the Aussies.

Aussie Michael Mathews takes the pink jersey after the second stage of the Giro in a very soggy Belfast. Kittel won the stage.

He's the best sprinter and the rest are TAYPOC. Even more boring than the usual sprints with no real competition.
