Get landis a watch that works, comon.
Late for work, sure. Late for a start? Never. I cut it close once at the line for a 'cross race, but it's not like it was the biggest race of my life.MikeBiker said:Come on, give Floyd a break. Who among us has not occasionally shown up late for work?
Now waita sec...I thought you said you were off to Strasbourg yesterday...:idea:philippec said:I think Zabriskie pulled a quick one on Floyd. He changed the instructions ("transfuse 1-2 hours before racing") to read "transfuse contents one to two seconds before racing"!! But Floyd got him back and dumped some wet sand in the Z's seat tube to slow him down.
(hey, if we can't have fun with operacion Puerto, what is left??!!)

Did you know that there are enough opiates in a poppy seed muffin to cause a failed dope test? I sure didn't! My dreams of racing the Grande Boucle were shattered by an inoportune fit of hypoglycemia-induced munchies...Room 1201 said:Now waita sec...I thought you said you were off to Strasbourg yesterday...:idea:
I think there's a huge difference here though - don't you think?bman said:yeah, because lance never forgot to clip in at the start of a tt, or neglected to properly hydrate/bring water during an hour long tt.
Lance doesn't get flat tires. Flat tires get Lance.
the way I read it the tire wasn't actually flat but it was perceived that it would flat on course. I don't know how they, or even who, arrived at that conclusion but it makes more sense than landis suddenly noticing he had an untimely flat.55x11 said:Landis did something that was easily preventable - getting to the start on time. He claims there was a flat. Why was it noticed literally seconds before he had to get going? Somehow I don't think this would be considered acceptable at teams like Discovery or CSC. I hope Phonak has a talk with bike mechanic, or with Landis about this..
