I never bought that argument myself, domination like we saw today is fascinating to me, but I wonder how many people who for years claimed that Lance was bad for the Tour, would argue that Basso is bad for Giro?
It is bad for the Giro. For many years now the Giro has been very competitive and fun to watch. This year how Ullrich is doing is more interesting than what is happening to the top spot in the GC. There is nothing fascinating about already knowing the outcome.55x11 said:I never bought that argument myself, domination like we saw today is fascinating to me, but I wonder how many people who for years claimed that Lance was bad for the Tour, would argue that Basso is bad for Giro?

Oh, where's the forgiveness, where's the Humanity?svend said:yup, everyone likes a dead doper.......
Sorry, I thought Pantani was a tool, great rider, but a tool none the less.......one of the funnier comments LA ever made was referring to Pantani and his self given nickname....atpjunkie said:Yes, he lacks the personality of Pantani, he doesn't refer to himslef in the 3rd person but he also lacks the baggage.
I would be, but I'm much too preoccupied with following "Tommy D's" rise to the top of the cycling pantheon. Meteoric, it is.il sogno said:What? You guys aren't keeping up with the hot competition going on for the 110 Gazzetta classification? Patrick Calcagni is only 1 point ahead of Mickael Delage!
