    Blimey, this guy is mind bogglingly good.



    Yes, indeed. At what point do we start wondering how this wonderkid came out of nowhere and started winning everything? :oops:

    He got his brother on board at Liquigas too recently...who is also apparently very good.

    Was it Davis or Iglinskiy in 4th?

    Iglinsky

    Could Sagan be the new Kelly? Strong TT, good at reasonable bumps a monster at everything else.

    While few, if any, of us had heard of him before this season, a look at his background shows that he hasn't really come out of nowhere.

    In 2008 he was Junior World Mountain Bike champion, 2nd in the Junior World Cyclo-cross Championship and came 2nd at Junior Paris-Roubaix (after attacking with 80km to go and being caught by a small group near the end and outsprinting all but one of them).

    Sagan could be the new EBH!

  • So let me get this straight. Is Sagan the new new Eddy Merckx?

    I think the line of reasoning is as follows:

    Sagan is the new EBH

    EBH was the new Kelly

    Kelly was the new Merckx

    Therefore, Sagan is the new EM.



    Mind you, its like the old syllogism . "God is Love; Love is Blind; Ray Charles is blind; Therefore, Ray Charles is God"

    Where does that leave Stevie Wonder? Is there more than one God?
