  1. SEGAN does not deserve this.
    He rides for no one else except HIMSELF and never heads done.
    It’s sad that the public thinks this clown is great because he does a one handed wheely says it all really.
    A Selfish loner who wins not very often and never helps Any1 else.
    I hope he retires soon as he is an overrated stunt rider.

  2. Sprinters – easily! Not many specialist mountain climbers get to be the leaders of the team so they end up spending their time in the mountains as domestiques. When they win a stage it’s generally as a result of good fortune from a breakaway, whereas on the flat stages, the teams will always work for the sprinters rather than the team leader as they know thats their best shout at a stage win.
