    I'd rather not have it on the front page but it would make perfect sense in the Contador thread.

    Just ask dim to get rid of it.

    Hitch proposed it and I liked the idea and then Dim created one. We might have been slightly drunk..

    How about a countdown to Keldermerckx's first Tour win in 2014? :P

    Some people actually care about the return of the greatest cyclist ever. And please stop making all these stupid jokes.

    Why get your knickers in a twist though? Not like I said anything against thee, I haven't even been half mad through all this.

    Or are you sacrilegiously saying Reinardt isn't the best.

    Flo you need to have a bit of a thicker skin about this. People making jokes about Contador aren't attacking you personally.

    You say it was 'blown out of proportion' but from where I'm sitting the person getting most worked up about it seems to be you.

    Not worked up at all :D

    I just don't understand why everyone is making such a big deal of it. Just take it down and be done with it.

    For someone who keeps complaining about how much La Flo talks about Contador, you do seem to talk a lot about Kelderman.

    Despite the self-serving data benders and associated propaganda to the contrary, I am led to believe that there are pockets of organised, highly sophisticated dopers, even within 'new age' cycling teams. Personally, I don't accept that the 'dark era' has ended, it has just morphed into a new guise.

    i dont see any problem wth it being in the contador thread (but not on the front of the site)

    If everyone wants it removed from the contador thread I will gladly remove it, i just cant say how long it will take for me to get around to it, not really a priority, could take me, ooh, maybe 5-6 weeks or so ;)

    Nah, I really like it for the Contador thread and I think we should make a similar type of countdown for other riders their threads when they get banned, such as Shep  :P
