Prefontaine is on, and it reminded me why Vaughters comments bugged so many fans

P165
Those of us that love to see an athlete take a dig, have a go etc. We are the ones that think Prefontaine's choice to run for 1st and not medal was amazing. What we want to see is someone take a risk as Millar did last year not ride for 7th. That's the little thing that bothered people about Garmin's choice yesterday.

  1. What's bothered me about Vaughters' comments is all the bold talk in January, February, and March (I specifically remember an interview in which he stated that other teams are "f*cked" because Garmin lines up a team for a race with riders who can win based on how the race plays out). Now, when push comes to shove, his team can't deliver and it typically doesn't. Vaughters is a mediocre DS at best who has difficulty gameplanning, reading, and adjusting in a race. They ALWAYS seem to play their cards too early in a race. He should save the bold talk until his team actually shows it can win a race where the other teams best riders show up.
