Anyone want Cipo in TDF besides me?(9 posts)

Anyone want Cipo in TDF besides me?tommy t

I can't believe Cipo's team isn't in the TDF this year since it's the 100th anniversary race. I always thought the TDF was the greatest cycling race in the world represented by the best cyclists from around the world.

When I heard Leblanc decided to put in 3 French teams instead of Cipo team for wilds cards, I got a little angry. Do these French teams really have a better chance of winning or placing higher in the team catogory than Cipos team? Do people really want to see these unheard of teams? I sure the hell don't even if Cipo wins a few stages then drops out. I'd rather see him and his charisma then watching boring french teams that finish sub-par.

I guess with a cycling race with 100 years of heritage it's backed with 100 years of B.S. politics.
why? cipo might quit...ClydeTri

OLN announcers were saying Cipo would probably quit after one or two stages, as they hit the mountains real quick......supposedly he promised he would try to finish the tdf this year, but, hasnt he said that before?????
I dont want him win but...the bull

Giro & TdF since OLN started televising, and I get 'glued' to the tv when there's a non-climbing stage in progress and you can see Cipo's Team jockey him in for the stage's an exciting cat 'n mouse race for the last 5km all the way to the finish....personally I found last year's TdF almost boring during the last week...Yes, there were a few good moments, but did anyone actually think that Lance wouldn't win, barring some catastrophe?? I wouldn't expect Cipo to last more than 5 stages tops, but he does add flair to any race he's have to give him credit; he is one hell of a cyclist; like him or not!
