Is it me or is Shane Sutton a tw4t ?

Anyone watch the Wiggo documentary on the Murdoch Super dodgy expensive information network sports channel ?

I remember S Sutton when he was racing in the domestic scene in the UK - oh and his Adolf top lip 'tache. He was a tw4t then and I don't think he raced much if at all on the continent. So how did he end up as Wiggo's trainer ?

Maybe Wiggo has to pedal hard to try to get away from the fokker, therein lies the reason.

    He's good enough to have been asked by Wiggo to coach him, and Wiggo's results speak for themselves.

    Yeah, what a censored .... :roll:
  • Is SS the guy who was always on Cavs case for not "hitting his numbers" on the test rig?

    I can't recall but I'm sure it was Cavs bug bear in his boy racer autobiography.

    If I could find the kindle I would verify it. I don't think it is though

    Totally agree with your unquestionable opinion. Did you see the big ozzie jesse (current Aus. captian) crying at the thought of the impending retirement of Ricky Ponting ? That lot have gone all soft.

    Ricky Ponting, now there is a 24 carat gold [email protected] with a face like a slapped @rse.

    Skippy was the last credible Australian (as well as Chopper Reid of course)

    He's a tough b***ard but a top bloke, I had the 'pleasure' of doing a few rides under his watchful eye when he was the Welsh coach. Why does the fact he didn't race much on the continent suggest he shouldn't be coaching Wiggins? He might not be great at doing the comforting arm around the shoulder routine but he's bloody good at his job.

    Thats easy ya censored :

    I'll lean out of the car and shout stuff at you. Stuff like this:

    "Go faster you friggin poofta pommy boy"
    "Yer backs hurtin' ? Thats what its for, pedal, pedal, pedal"
    "Whats the matter with you, its only a 25% gradient, you should be in the big ring doing 150rpm ya bloody cup cake..."
    etc etc.
    See, i've no continental pedigree (although I did a race in England once or twice) and based on what I can shout at you as you can see, i'm a real tough basteward too. So there. :P
