Oh for gods sake, Lewis 2nd?
Who is Geraint Thomas? lol
Another British winner of the Cheat De France.
And not a very happy one at that. He looked bewildered!
I really wanted Hamilton to win, but for me it had to be between the cyclist or the retired olympian to take it.
Not surprised the cyclist took it. He'll probably get a Knighthood later this year too.
Poor old Chris Froome. He won it twice and barely registered a vote.
Welsh brigade out in force tonight on the mobiles.
Although tbf, Froome is a saffer
Loving all the people on twitter happy that Hamilton didn't win as he a tax dodging scumbag. Geraint Thomas also lives in Monaco. They don't like having that pointed out.
They're the kind of people who would do exactly the same given the circumstances.
Team Sky could probably turn 10% of the country into Tour De France winners if they gave them the chance, Hamilton's achievement is so much better.
In the same way that any half decent driver could have had a shot at the F1 title IF they drove a Mercedes for the last 5 years?
Bottas is probably far and away better than "any half decent driver", most normal people wouldn't make the 107% rule as there's far more skill involved in F1. Cycling is mainly about physical preparation/training with a bit of team tactics.
And if the last few years are to be believed, a vast quantity of illicit substances.
Why do people always have to put down winners? Hamilton is one of very few Brits who doesn’t bottle it. He delivers on the grandest stages as does Froome.
Why can’t people celebrate people’s success?
4 Times! and Giro and Vuelta - face doesn't fit I guess.
Section of the public always have a problem with ‘plastic’ Brits, plus compared to Wiggins and G in the personality stakes he’s hardly Mr Friday Night!

I must admit I was surprised myself when he said that. I also thought he came across slightly over confident almost as though he thought he'd won it. Who knows, he might have got more votes and won if it wasn't for those things.
To be fair I'll never forget where I was when I found out England had won the women's netball gold at the Commonwealth Games in April 2018. Watching Sports Personality of the Year in December 2018.
