Viviani to Quick Step.Oooft!


#122

I’ll die if Alpecin ever stop being involved in pro-cycling and the cycling-related promotion of their excellent products


#123

that’s… a slight downgrade

edit: for QSF, obv.


#124

Pivot towards GC with Dan Martin?


#125

Let’s hope so! Really no reason why they can’t effectively split their season/squad to cover the classics and 2 of the 3 GTs prioritising Martin as leader and hoping Viviani might sneak a win or 2.


#126

Just don’t see him as a contender in a 3 week GT. I like him, plucky rider, aggressive, but top 5 placing max


#127

yeah I agree.

He’s looked good (and was very unlucky tbf) because people haven’t treated him like a threat… not sure he’d be given the same leeway and be as effective… which would mean you’d lose the glory of seeing him do his thing. :confused:

Samuel Sanchez (BMC) pinged for HGH. Drip, drip, drip, the positives keep coming. Dirty fuckers


#129

:frowning:
I was a big fan of Sammy.


#130

So if he was pinged for HGH in 2017, imagine what he was taking in 2008 and before.

So was @thewarn, so was i

#136

You forgot the “oooft!”


#137

You’re right, he does have good hair.

(You around on Thursday evening? Got the plastics staying at mine and we’re possibly heading to pi for pizza and then a couple of beers somewhere if you fancy a meet?)


#138

Ooooh yes. Yes I am! I am most certainly around!


#139
