- 'north munster'
I know he has great pedigree, but I'm not buying it. He's 'too' good. He doesn't even have a protour contract yet, and he excels in multiple disciplines. I've never come across anything like him. Ridiculous.
Yeah, his dad (Adri) failed a drugs test in 1983 ( positive for
strychnine) his excuse was he ate pigeon pie and his father in law's
pigeon had been doped !
always comes up in best doping excuses lists.
i'm going soft cause i love the Canyon bike ad with the footage of
the three generations.
his team is so weak so he won as close to possible on his own.
and what about Simon Clarke ? he almost won.
my favourite two races next - Fleche and Liege.
Dan will be up there as usual but i have to expect Alaphilippe
to win both....
Liege will finish in city centre i believe for first time in nearly
30 years so finish should be easier.
was thinking of 1999 Amstel race today :
Boogerd surprisingly beat Lance in two man sprint.
I was delighted - never liked Lance even then.
i haven't got a clue anymore who MIGHT be honest as i don't
follow cycling like i did in 2000's when i was very on the ball.
