    Like I said, "for those interested" NOT "for those looking to prove their douchebag status".

    I think of it in the same way as Formula 1 racing. I like to know the results but I find the TV coverage turns me catatonic.

    Got to give credit to that Armstrong geezer. He managed to net himself Sheryl Crow. I believe he may be famous in his own right these days

    Cheers

    Whoever wrote that article is a serious douchebag and knows nothing about cycling.

    I love the paragraph on how the mountain stages seperate the "contenders from the pretenders". That is proof that this assclown knows nothing about the sport or is blinded by his own cynacyism. Not EVERY cyclist can be a great climber, just like every cyclist can not be a great sprinter.

    You've totally lost me there. Why would you want to stare at a CD cover rather than stare at the real thing? Is she a minger in real life or something?

    IMHO, cyclists are the best athletes in the world. What other sports involves the same amount of risk, speed, and athleticism as cycling. By making the bike technology better, it makes the tour that much harder because there is a smaller margin for error for all of the riders. Talk about boring, shouldn't you be playing cricket???

    Absolutely, any clown that can (and is allowed) to write or comment on something he knows nothing about usually pisses me off.
    Sheet, just watch any HBO PPV fight, Larry Merchant is the biggest assclown out there, WHY they let him comment on fights is beyond me, and every fight fan out there. Thank god they have Roy Jones there to correct his many errors.
