It's called Team Hype. Only overrated cyclists need apply. This is the team for cyclists who are long on camera time and short on abilities.

Iban Mayo - Best climber in the world????????????? C'mon. He's a non-factor who never should have been in the spotlight. Who cares if he's Basque and has a nice orange Orbea. He's got no game.

Thomas Voelkler - Puleaaase. Get this camera hog away from me. What an opportunistic ham! This guy got 100 times more air time than he deserves. Next.


Who else dare join Team Hype?
Danielson? Vaughters - who continues to hype himself after a bs career??

I nominate Rasmussen as their designated time trialist and also as their "go to" guy in a clutch.

I am not sure if he should be a rider, but the team does need a morale officer and David Miller is the obvious man for the job. When the chips are down, the weather turns to crap, maybe one of the riders has even been involved in a crash with a race vehicle, who else could be relied upon for a pep talk that will stiffen the riders' spines along with their lips, urging them to continue on through adversity and never, ever quit?

Satntiago Botero. Won one big time trial and was all of a sudden overly hyped!

Cunego. Don't be talking about my boy in this thread. In his place, I'll offer up Gilberto Spumoni and his TDF exploits.

Yep, Botero hardly won anything.

And Simoni: I guess any moron with 2 legs can win the Giro twice. Glad to know the world still revolve around TdF.
I guess Armstrong was hyped as well since he never won a "real" classic?

Sylvain Chavanel, the next great French hope. He's been the next great French hope for a couple of years now, and even collected a few wins, but he doesn't scare anybody, except for maybe the French.

Of course he took over for the last great French hope, Christophe Moreau.

We can offer up anyone who's french that shows great promise. They seem so hungry for a TDF contender that the hype machine revs up a lot!

Botero... pfffft. What the heck is that list you're showing off.. Wow, a few top tens some races the past three years.

I think he had a great 2002 at Kelme and then they hype got going. Since then, he forgot to show up.

Cheap-a$$ hindsight gloating, lame thread. If they don't deserve the attention, why devote a thead to them? The best that can come from it is a little flame war. Rather dissapointing coming from you.
