    Loved Il Pirata, is one of my sporting idols, always tried to replicate his stance for mountain climbs, with far less effect of course.

    This years Tour is crazy though, so many crashes, even one cyclist came off after hitting a dog!
    haha poor golden retriever.i saw that.

    no its no pantani. i dont know. never like the baldy.
    the guy im talking about is kinda tall and big, his jersey is always red.
    is it cipollini? i remember his name has a lot of L's.

    yes although i don't like Lance i feel sorry for him. But even more i have pity on Cadel Evans. Not the first time he has bad luck while being in good shape. He was so disappointed yesterday.

    Yeah that disappointed me, in football I love the craft and cunning you get in getting one over your opponent, whether it be diving, using the hand, scoring when it didn't go over the line. But cycling was different, I loved it because it had such sportsmanship between the competitors, unwritten code that meant Contador doing that was impossible before, because the pelaton group was more important. But now its acceptable it seems, and its a shame, and its not just Contador, this tour has been full of it. I blame alot of it on Cavendish, even last year you saw what lengths he will go to, trying to push Thor into the barriers, once one starts that sort of thing regularly, it becomes normal.

    i remember back in 99 or 00, ullrich fell down and armstrong waited for him
    and later on at another stage, armstrong fell and ullrich waited while i was screaming at the tv screen telling jan to go ahead lol

    and i noticed during one of the spints in the early stages this year, one guy headbutted another sprint contender to make way for his team mate.
    i cant remember such dirty tactics the last time i watched tour de france last decade

    At the moment... let's see... Alonso in F1 (already won this season), basket (national team, CL and Gasol with Lakers), Hockey (national team and CL with our club), cycling... well at a first look... no!

    Yep, I really hope Cavendish doesn't take the green jersey today, obviously I want Alessandro Petacchi to win anyway, but not just that. Cavendish is by far the dirtiest rider, and I attribute alot of this acceptance of foul play to him and his terrible attitude. It would be bad for the sport if someone like that won it.

    lorenzo in MotoGP.
    unbelievable year for the spaniards.
    hopefully it will give them a boost.

    pippo, i havent been following the tour that much.
    so was cavendish the guy who headbutted another rider during the sprint?
    what other dirty tactic did he do?

    Is anyone really surprised Contador is a doper? They might as well change the sport name to Professional Doping, really.

    Contador got a ban for a year after a drugs test came back positive. He said he ate "contaminated meat"
