    From those comments you'd think that he'd never ridden in a bike race before. It was good to see him back in the mix and trying to win, but sometimes it just doesn't work out as you like.

    Think in future his team manager might want him to do his press interviews after he's had a shower and a cup of tea.

    Wish Voeckler had been in this race. He would have shown the front group how to try and race for first.

    Glad Haussler is echoing my sentiments earlier in this thread. Glad to hear he is in form - wish him a good win this year.

    Nuyens out for the entire Spring.

    ^^ Agree.

    Isnt HH just repeating what a lot of people on here were saying as the race was unfolding?

    As rants go, that was a collector's item. I'm all in favour of sportspeople speaking their minds, especially if they shouldn't. It would seem sensible to tweak to points system to see if it inflates the value of places, over winning, distorting the racing.

    Not used to being at the sharp end of a race. Seems to think it's like thr grupetto... ;-)

    I like Haussler's comments - good for him - passion and a bit of sweary bits too. The last thing I want is a peloton of EBH sound bites "it was nice and good and nice"...

    He still manages to look less of an idiot than Gilbert in those white leg warmers!

    I like what he's saying, but at the end of the day he rides a bike for a living and I find oil which means that I can flounce about all I like when I'm talking about cycling. Sucks as it does, in reality he'd have done more for IAM Cycling* by sitting at the back of the group and sprinting for 2nd than trying to chase down Sagan.

    I'm with mroli and Mac on preferring riders that speak their minds too

    *Thought it was pretty funny when the Sporza (and Dutch Eurosport) commentators were almost competing with each other to pronounce IAM in as many different ways as possible!

    Erm...

    Boonen Falls, but does not round up...

    I guess it means that he's not out of RVV?
