Back in the day racing with Lance was no treat, a 17 year old with Subaru-Montgomery kit still haunts my dreams. Now I get hammered by Tommy Matush (former 7-11) in the same fashion you described with Rodgers. At least Bobby Mionske is busier in the courtroom now he makes few appearances on a bike.Rivet said:Another funny anectdote, Here in SoCal there is this guiy named Thurlow Rodgers ... I've been next to him or behind in races and the guy looks like a total kook on the bike, kinda chubby, flailing around and bouncing on the saddle, you'd swear he was a new rider, that is until he rides every damn person off his wheel, he even gives the local pros a good kicking. You never know.
He can't do it by himself, and Ullrich, Kloden, and Zabel won't pedal one stroke for him. Zabel would be the uber-domestique on the flats, and Kloden the same in the mountains. Ullrich could do either. If they worked for him, he'd get a podium spot, and maybe the yellow. Working by himself, I'll bet on at least one stage win for Vino.Caffeine Powered said:Lance who? Basso, Vinokourov & Bettini
maybe he's just cycling on two wheels insead of cycling his 'juice' intake......Berkeley Mike said:The wheels are now round but he still looks terrible. He actually looks kinda "Fred." Maybe it is the sox. Maybe he is starting to look human; vulnerable. The impression of an image is a hard thing to shake.
