Did anybody else see E. Merckx's comments about Virenque in the TTT yesterday?

"He's got a Formula 1 underneath him but he rides it as if it were a 4x4!"

That's pretty harsh!

I saw that, but I read it as a good humoured "criticism," since no one will ever mistake Virenque as a time trialist.

It just goes to show that any comment without context can be interpreted in many different ways.

Yeah, well I wish they would have made it clear that was the case then. All that was listed was the quote, no context.

This is all part of a gigantic European Union plot to prohibit us from exercising our Constitutional right to pollute the planet.

Gotta go, there are some black helicopters overhead...
