Any people here who are interested in cycling?


My favourite team is Etixx-Quick Step. Alaphilippe just won the 7th stage of the Tour of California.

I like cycling too, but there's already a thread I think.
Anyway, it looks like Contador is going to win the Giro, but the double with the Tour de France is too hard to achieve in my opnion.

And Cav now with the most wins in 2015.

Big Cycling fan here, Etixx are a decent team but they have massively underperformed this season, minus Cavendish.

They had bad luck with the injury of Boonen. But rescued the classics with second places and Kwiato won Amstel Gold Race.

Etixx? Lol.
The team is run by Patrick Lefevre and the main doctor is Jose Ibarguren.

You won't find a dirtier team in the sport, though Astana seems to give them a good run for their money.

Hate sports where doping is rampant. Cycling is all stamina and endurance based and there was no clean champion for years.

This is more than naive. Tennis is also very endurance and power based, so doping would help a lot in this area. Furthermore they could take drugs which improve concentration and cognitive abilites and this is very decisive in every sports. But i have accepted it and i will continue watching Tennis.

But back to subject:

Jan Ullrich was my childhoodhero. Since he was caught i watched less cyling for a while. But i am still interested.

Just ignore him, he's either trolling, or is as stupid as he appears to be.

Lets talk Cycling, I love Ulle, despite his recent problems and doping history, still a great rider and still in great shape for his age!

Especially the clinic. Noone is clean, all is a big conspiracy. But they have a point though, cycling should be paranoic after Lance Pharmstrong's era and the performance lately looks weird again.

I like Nibali, he looks like the complete package: great climber, great downhiller, great in the wet, great on the cobbles (see the last year's Tour, what a performance). Maybe a TT is a problem for him and he's not that strong as Contador or Froome overall, but he brings something different to peloton. One of the few guys who attacks even in the downhill, Saviodelii style.

This giro has had the best first week of grand tours since a long time, very exciting. I hope that Porte wins the TT by a minute over Contador, then it's time to bet money on Contador, he should win comfortably even with the dislocated shoulder.

The Clinic is bang on most of the time, completely exposing the bullshit. Sometimes you have to take it with a pinch of salt, but it is the best place to discuss doping in most sports.
