Man as soon as the caravan passes by, all the town dogs bark at it. It absolutely astounds me to this day that anyone in this room squeaks about Lance Armstrong's "only winning the Tour" year after year, rather that distributing all his eggs all over the place in other races. His Modus Operandi is to WIN THE TOUR. THAT'S IT. His entire life is constructed around that goal and he accomplishes it year after year. Yet instead of acclaim, he gets posts from small tyrants on RBR about how he doesn't spread his talent throughout the year. Jesus people, go back to sleep! This guy is WINNING. Over and over. A race you naysayers can't even afford to fly across the puddle and WATCH from the sidelines, let alone compete in! Shut up and ride your local centuries! Good Lord, give the man credit for destroying something you can only watch on video, fer cryin out loud!

well, at least it breaks up the monotony of the usual topics of...what wheels should I buy, what size frame should I buy, is this a good deal for johnnies used bike, or the whole frame material thing...another good one is the idiots analyzing frame designs and deciding weather or not they actually are worth anything or if its just marketing. Keep reading and youll find the same 10 or 20 questions being asked everyday. just add the lance thing to the notch. youll get used to it. =)

Nick, aka PodiumBound, has issues. Being a sprinter he has a hard time holding back when someone questions the legitamacy of a sprinter in cycling.

It's almost funny to watch. Last week, while praising Cipo, he said "What hasn't he done?" A couple guys barked back with stuff like "Win the tour."

The next day Nick gets flamed again while criticizing the Tour and praising Cipo.

He them posts his own topic babbling the same old arguement but this time proposing rule changes in the TDF. Everyone recognizes the trolling and he gets no response.

Now the 18 year old Sprinter is fired up. He will not be ignored!!! He finds some article written by an idiot sportswritter. The quote, most likely taken out of context, is all Nick needs to start barking again. This too is obvious trolling but people are getting annoyed. Now Nick and Cipo will get the torch.

Although the arguement is old, it's fun to read into Nick's increasing frustration as he gets all fired up. He's still young, he'll learn.
it's usually just Nick...collinsc
