Nice work Vino, outsmarted them all.

"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

Gee, sorry Cav....
Comments really do read as though the rest of the field was meant to ride so as to suit him, don't they?

If they hadn't already hung the medal round his neck before the race then it may have been raced differently. The way the talk was in the build up was that he only had to turn up to win, that was sure to annoy the others and in the end we (GB) weren't good enough on the day.
couldn't stay up to the end, must have been a good finish. bummed out ogrady got so close but no medal

Its a bit rich of the GB team to blame the Aussies, we had someone in the leading group, I can't work why the GB team weren't alert enough to do likewise instead of purely racing for Cavendish. Germany could be blamed though.
Good on Vino for winning, always one of the most intriguing riders in the tour de france when he's not sitting out for doping reasons! I read an article today basically saying that he's the guy no one wanted to win due to the previous charges, I disagree, but if they think that, why doesn't the Olympics just perma ban anyone done for doping as its not in line with the Olympic spirit..
Don't have a problem with what Cav said.
Thought it was our guy that led the first breakaway, stayed in the lead group the whole time and eventually destroyed GB's hopes
Furthermore, we also sent another guy up the road to help him
GB's tactics seem to consist of circulating slowly enough to allow Cav to climb the hills, co-opting Sky riders from other countries to help tow him, allowing anyone with any ambition to break away and expecting the others to come back to wait for Cav to sprint the last 200 m to victory
Sorry for ****ing that up for you
finish wasnt that good after all. rookie mistake too.
Cavendish is a brilliant rider but why can't he just have said it wasn't to be and that is racing instead of whining like a baby about how unfair the field were to stop him. Makes him look almost as foolish as when Paula Radcliffe blows it in a marathon then blubs.
Well **** me. It's called competitive sport. Hea the cycling World's Peter Costello with a sense of entitlement like that.
hey burgey, newsflash, both sides of politics are turdhead ****wits
I don't really think he's whinging. To me it just seemed a typical post-race Cav interview, he recounted how the race went, this time it didn't go so well, so he threw in a few words that reflected that.
