Impressive ride by Pinot....if he's improved his TT'ing he'll be a real Grand Tour contender in the future.

I've actually been wondering if anyone can see my comments as when I look on my brothers account I can't see them if I'm not logged in as me Confused

I have been a fan of Pinot's for a cpl years now, one problem!
HE IS SHIT SCARED TO DESCEND AND E1 KNOWS.
He could stay with wiggo(also terrible,he best fin in tdf that year), but not froome and co.

Waaaa Waaaaa !

Another tour comes to an end, I am contemplating this one being my last, there is just to much bitching on the forum about the way the game is run, why don't we do this, why not try that.....instead of people just enjoying the game for what it is.

Anyway, todays winner is

1 Gmancervelo Gmancervelo 175

Top 3 overall

1 NouveauCompte NouveauCompte 704
2 The Pigeons chrisdstripes 684
3 Geekhouse Elite Squad 20thebear 663

Top Purist

1 Manxroadstars (Purist) royquilliam 487

Look, I don't want you to go D Oh Really! Smile Who's going to change the rider names for me? And you are (!) in my mind, the quickest of the team in putting up the game scores... C'mon! Big Grin

I just can't help myself, though...

Don't you think it's ironic that you post:

After you post:

... 180 is ridiculous... its got stupid now

Why don't you not (!) leave, stick around and 'enjoy the game for what it is' ?

Don't give up on me partner (!) You and I are part of the Roadcc fabric now (!). What's an 'enrique' without a 'Gkam'? Thinking Hmmm... probably a happy Gkam and a happy forum community. Big Grin Anyways, I forbid you to go! Just kidding. C'mon! Take in stride and be happy! We love you. At least I do (!) Big Grin

Stay. We want you here.

Ah well done - I just missed out (needed a big ride from Talansky yesterday to have any chance). Still got 2nd, and I think plenty of Forum comp points to go with it!

I heard somewhere that he had taken up downhill skiing to try and overcome this well known phobia?

Took a massive 40 point hit, but actually worth it in the end. Final score, 135 plus three extra badges (skinsuit, full house and podium).

Still, a rubbish race overall for me! Roll on the Giro...
