Hamilton continues right where he left off...biknben

I'm a big Hamilton fan but...

He wouldn't have to be half as courageous as he is if he could JUST STAY ON HIS DAMN BIKE!!!!! Notice his bars, jersey, and gloves. Looks like a damn massacre!!!

to the effect that Tyler could win big if he started kicking someone's a@@ rather than his kicking his own a@@. I like and respect the guy, but he needs some bike handling lessons (like I'm one to talk -- sitting here recovering from a broken shoulder I obtained in a solo crash) and/or some better luck.
Do you remember the tour...spookyload

when lance won the first time. It was a major climbing day and when the rain quit, he was taking his rain jacket off and it went into his rear wheel causing him to crash. I think it was 99 actually. There was lances lieutenant sitting on the ground getting his jacket out of his wheel.
At least it's team colors nmtorquecal

I mean, what kind of a bastard (excuse my language) breaks his collar bone in the tour de france, and continues? That is a praiseworthy stunt. I agree with all of you.

But going out like a freaking rebellious teenage jackass and getting injured, again, is beyond the pale...

I think he has psychological problems. Bonafide psychologists will understand what I am saying. No need to explain for the laymen; no I am not a pychologist; I hate them. I can jump off of a roof, and get bloody, but why bother? Hamilton is a big fake. He wants to be a martyr like his here, Armstrong.

Ain't gonna happen, Hamilton...

Like his "hero," Armstrong.
Sorry for the error, gentlemen.
oddly enough I almost agree with you (for once)spookyload

He seems to make news for himself not based on his riding so much as how he is riding this year. If he hadn't broken his collar bone and finished 5th would anyone but him have cared? Would anyone have thought him the superhero? It is almost like people are more impressed with him finishing 5th than Lance winning his 5th. In Hollywood they have a name for what he is doing, it is called upstagin. And it is very rude. Now we have this nice bloody picture for all you who praise his toughness. Maybe what Stephen Roche said is accurate. Maybe he is trying to use this for his place in history rather than win bike races. Does anyone even know who won the race where he cut his hand. No! Nor have you seen any pictures of the race winner, but the blood picture has been plastered everywhere.
