I love watching you ride, and I know you had a crap season last year. But PLEASE stop bitching about RadioShack and Bruyneel and do your talking on the bike.

You think he'd learn! He did exactly the same thing when going from Saxo to Leopard Trek (as it was then) and I agree with you he still needs to actually do something on the bike when it matters!

Exactly, does he have what it takes? I really hope so, but I'll wait and see what he produces at the TDF and hoping that he stays fit and healthy. It seems that's why he went to Astana, although how he can overlook Vino and his digressions worries me.

I really have reservations regarding the move. Reading the news out of the team, it's all about Nibali and his Giro push; they even had Jakob down as a Khazak on his Astana profile. I don't think they care two hoots for Jakobs' ambitions or the TDF; Jakob might lead the team, but what will that really amount to?

This is so unlike me to be cross with Jakob. It prob started cos I checked his twitter account, hasn't updated so all his whining about the Olympics was still there at the top. I mean, there is only so much allowance I can make for a very pretty face :)

I couldn't have put it better

He's obviously pretty good at what he does, but, personally, I don't think he's nearly as good as he thinks he is/that other people have led him to believe he is.

Basically, yeah- he needs to stop saying words before everyone hates him

Yes, cos I don't want to hate him really. Guess I was really cranky this morning.

just checking your post was meant to be deleted and it's not LJ being 'helpful'
