About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Heh, someone was a bit pissed around 2:33, right side of the video. Any idea who?

  2. AHH, YES. THIS VIDEO REMINDS ME WHY I DON’T RACE ROAD ANYMORE….USUALLY IF YOU CRASH IN A MTB RACE IT IS YOUR OWN DAMN FAULT.

  3. That was a rough tumble! I don’t watch a whole lot of road racing, but that’s the roughest pack I’ve seen. Rubbin’ is racin’, I guess.

  4. …when you see those overhead shots from the helicopters, it seems almost amazing that there aren’t even more crashes…

    …juking, jiving, deke-ing, diving, to the right, to the left, fighting for wheels, this way that way, back n’ forth & all at about 40mph…

    …crazy ass stuff…

  5. Cyclingnews reports JJ Rojas & Van Avermaet were taken out by a Saxo Bank rider. Uhm…I don’t think so. Let’s go to the tape (thanks BJ) Rojas goes for a psycho inside line, and is nearly mashed into the barriers by Marcato – the Vacansoleil rider, and spewing bile Rojas rides his own ass straight into the Saxo Bank dude, who winds up in Van A’s grill. Marcato was riding like a DB, but JJ ended his own day on that one.

  6. This is the funniest thing I have ever heard CAV say:

    http://velonews.competitor.com/2012/03/news/cavendish-its-as-simple-as-one-wheel_210693

    No, it is not just as simple as losing “one wheel”… it is that you cannot win without having 8 pairs of wheels in front of you to drop you off at the line. Champions ride across gaps, sometimes multiple times to get to the main selection or the attack to make the selection they want. Cav can’t. had Cav even made the selection, no one is draggin him to the line, he would have been dropped sooner or later.

    It IS as simple as THAT.

  7. …nice catch, pigah…

    …baby got a new pair & is using them to encourage the riders…i like unselfish chicks…

  8. …hey holden…i won’t comment on your comment or extrapolate on your own particular fitness & finesse as a rider but remember one thing…

    …only one guy wins each race & there’s a lotta them out there trying & yes, certain riders in certain situations have certain job descriptions but in the end, i’m pretty sure young mr cavendish is giving it his best shot as regards whatever level of fitness he’s attained thus far this season…

    …take that for what’s worth…& besides, it’s a long season…

  9. That was awesome. Lotta hungry lions in that pack. Some domestiques forgot to attack mid race to whittle down the contenders at the end.

  10. @ HOLDEN FLABCOCK – That article is hilarious. Cav is a butter ball. Fucking kid has got to find a way across the gap and past the dessert tray. Fucking barrel-assed donut-boy is embarrassing himself out there. And, he’s just too daft to realize it.

  11. @big johnny Thank you. At least someone out there recognizes a crass over hyped brit when he sees one.

    @bikesgonewild I appreciate the 2 cents but really mate?? You are a World Champion and your excuse was ” I was one wheel away…” and got dropped. Funny, I don’t remember Merckx, Boonen, Cippo, or any other World Champ giving World Champ excuses like that. One thing my old man used to say was always know what you are good at and don’t make excuses. Cav failed on both. the truth is he is just not fit enough right now and I would rather him just say that and get back to bloddy tweeting about Peta Todd…

    Face it, you are a fat little roguish prize and can sprint. you are not a classics rider, and history will prove me true.

    That is all.

  12. @bgw: If he didn’t want to get called out for getting his fat ass dropped in rainbows, he shouldn’t have won Worlds. Tomeke could give him some good advice about respecting the jersey.

  13. I would recommend the “sprint” finish of the first stage of Criterium International. What a shit show.

  14. …hmmm (pondering my own thoughts)…“i wonder how cav will do in the ‘le tour de france’ this year ???…lemme see, that’s a few months away…jeez, he’s ‘only’ won 20 stages in the last 4 years, as well as the most recent green points jersey, which i think, kinda indicates ‘something’…but hey, whatta i know ???…

    …now, in my book, he’s not up to any kinda consistency but then again, it’s still only late march & as the current world champion, he was attending all the usual social functions that go along with that like hanging with the queen of england – fucking bradley wiggins would kill to do that shit…

    …anyway, i’m not too worried about the guy but i guess i’d better stop defending him on-line ‘cuz hey, i was sure put in my place by the all-knowing pundits & experts on this site…

    …ya, i think i’ll just bide my time & watch & if he gets his shit together & starts kickin’ ass during ‘le tour’, i won’t need to say a thing…”

    …uhhh, ya…you guys are sure right about that lard ass…boy oh boy…

  15. @bikesgonewild

    Will you please lose the …….

    Jesus, you just proved my point. He can sprint,never said otherwise. he can’t win unless he has 8 pairs of wheels in front of him leading him out. See also the Tour de France. I have less respect for winning a Tour stage then a Belgian Classic.

    Hard Men win in Flanders. Not Dough boys.

  16. @DB

    Pretty sure it is Steve Chainel with FDJ Big Mat. Very strange style, eh?

    Tomeke is strong this year. You’d have to back him for at least one more win by the end of April. Where the hell is Gilbert?
