Tour de France

That time of year, when the Tour is on.

The Case for Nibali’s Win

Nibali

The cheering kid, the man with a camera for an arm, her very French, Cest la vie hair stylings…and Nibali gaining more time

Bike Hugger Magazine contributor, Patrick Brady makes the case for Nibali on his blog, Red Kite Prayer.

While the credibility of professional cycling certain merits skepticism, epithets and innuendo simply accelerate a race to the bottom. What if the sport is in the midst of rebuilding its integrity, and Nibali’s impending victory is the rightful result of talent, training, teamwork, and timing? If evidence shall be required to support accusations, what is needed to restore credibility?

Our policy is, if they test nonnegative then we discuss, until then Nibaly was 3 minutes off the Reis Hautacam record. That’s not extra terrestrial and, as he said himself, he acquired a 7 minute lead over 20 stages

I’m very different than Lance,” said Nibali, whose news conference manner is certainly far less combative than Armstrong’s. “I haven’t done one huge performance. I got 30 seconds here, 40 seconds there.”

And hey I rode a new Tarmac like he’s racing earlier this year.
