Tour de France

Postby Underdog » Sun Jul 15, 2012 10:02 pm

Great response from Wiggins to the Tack situation: propper Gentleman (and loads of good work generally by the British Guys this year)

Kinda makes ya feel just a little bit proud after the embarassment of certain fuckwit footballers lately !!
And every one of that pelaton deserve a fucking medal; these guys are pedalling on with injuries that would put aforementioned fuckwits out for 6 weeks minimum.

And how nice to see press conferences where all of the partcipants realise that chewing gum whilst talking to a human being is unacceptable.

(As an aside, how the fuck did a nation with our heratige allow a game (sic) like football, populated by a clan of subhuman mouth breathing wimps. pussies, cheats and idiots, become regarded as our national game?)

LBTAR :-)

it's very accessible..jumpers for goal posts etc etc

football's ills is money related...

get yourself down to see the sunday league sides playing for a real view of english football.

the sport you play doesnt make you soft or hard or more determined...we are all the same species after all.

The abundance of drugs in cycling has made me completely disinterested in it, its almost a competition on which lab can get one step ahead. Even those who aren't taking performance enhancing stuff are blood doping, which is basically allowed.

/\ Except in the thighs! Not sure about muscle loss..... probably more a case of extreme adaptation to needs?

they both look in good health to me. I gather you prefer looking at well sculpted, muscular man meat, thats your thing and although I dont approve of your lifestyle, i do tolerate it vincenoir.

Google pictures of both after an HC climb like the Col de la Croix de Fer - oh hang on, Can't find any of Mr Hoy.
I wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that they compete in disciplines so disparate as to be virtualy different sports?
Maybe the power to weight ratio and endurnce requirements might require different body types?

And, whilst you are at it maybe you should google "healthier" :wink:

Great profile of him on ITV4 last night, Paul Weller look-a-like a couple of years ago. Big Mod fan by all accounts.

The one thing that came out was that he can switch from track to road so easily, don't think Hoy could manage that. Both are legends and can't wait to see Wiggins tasting champagne on the run into Paris on Sunday.
