ok, so OPQS have their team camp this week with the obligatory (for them) set up of riders being dumped in a forest and shouted out by military fitness peeps.

HOW IS CAV GOING TO COPE?? :)

    Is it too mean to suggest that living with Peta might be good practice?
    We're in danger of confusing passion with incompetence

    I suspect Peta has the worst of that deal. Cav is a right moaning little sh*t. I thought I was a grumpy pr*ck, but I'm sure he has me beat :shock:

    Pffft. Saxo have a more "proactive" method of fostering team-spirit.

    They're giving them guns :

    s'pose that'd be one way of incentivising Nico to finally get a GT stage win

    but sorry, LangerDan, a camp that involves banana boats is hardly hard-core
  • Wow you think OPQS is good. Check out what Roche says about Saxo's:

    (Ps., Contador haters should steer clear of the link above as in addition to team building info it contains positive info on the best GT rider of the last 20 years)
    Contador is the Greatest

    Nico loved the banana boat the best. We all know this.

    erm...all that says is that he's better GT rider than Roche - not sure there's anyone that disagrees with that....

    (or that he speaks spanish better than a Franco-irishman and a Dane)

    he's also failed more drugs tests than Roche
  • Also he's not as good a grand tour rider as Indurain.

    Or Armstrong, he was a great climber and TTer.
  • Sickly Tommeke...had to skip the camp (bet he was devastated)

    and also a pic of genuine contender for Ugliest Cycling Trophy

    Never won anything though, did he?
    I have a policy of only posting comment on the internet under my real name. This is to moderate my natural instinct to flame your fatuous, ill-informed, irrational, credulous, bigoted, semi-literate opinions to carbon, you knuckle-dragging f***wits.
  • there are a couple of cracking pics coming out of the team-building, of Cav looking WTF. Can someone less technically inept than me, post 'em up? one in particular has just made me laugh so much, tea I was drinking just shot out of my nose

    He did OK. World Champs, Fleche W, San Sebastian, Tour du Pont. Basically the Alessandro Ballan of the 90s

    LOL @ Cav's face. I'm useless with heights as well.
  • That's SO NOT what he signed up for when he turned pro :lol:

    Cyclingnews accurate as ever (sic) with their sub-heading 'More team building for the team which dominated 2012'

    Think CN missed off the crucial word 'Classics'
