    Jack........

    I'm a supporter of Miller, even though at times he makes me cringe. Hey, he's the only Aussie horse in the race these days, so I haven't got much choice from a nationalist view. However, I follow him on instagram, and he's not long posted an image of him hanging with Lance Armstrong. Now, the Lance thing has been done to death, so lets leave the specifics of that alone, but surely somebody close to him has enough brains to see that's a bad idea, SURELY!!!!!

    Well, at least you have a horse in the race to root for. Hell, we're hosting this one and if we're not there live we get to watch it on a 2 hour delay.

    On Tuesday nights you can go cycle COTA. Apparently Lance was going to be there, rumor had it several MGP riders too. No idea if it materialized.

    Whatever explains it and makes it ok to you dude! I just think that hanging with "the best cheat", who behaved like a right cunt to anybody he felt like, is not especially smart for some one who would benefit from a positive sporting profile. Notice you didn't see Rossi, Lorenzo, Vinales et al there? There may be a reason for that?

    Seriously WGAF.

    Armstrong is from Austin, and despite his fall from grace is still a hometown hero in the area. When my parents lived there (when he was still an active cyclist), you would occasionally see him riding locally training.
    Hometown hero! I guess you got to work with what you got! As to fretting, I make an observation, that's not fretting. Just like you calling me a coward previously, clean yourself up, you are a disgrace.

    This, big boy, sounds more like fretting over lil' Jack's image than just an "observation" as you put it.

    And if you are concerned about how his social media persona is seen, that is your choice. Backtracking because someone says nobody cares just makes you look pathetic. WGAF what anyone thinks.

    So for the coward status, still applies even more. At least own what you said.

    Just remember, I asked a question. You immediately attacked. Ask yourself why.
    Hmmmm, and I'm the one with calories to burn........

    Jacks done some silly things but he has matured a little too. But on this issue I did not even think about it when I saw the pic.
    It's not like it's him alone with Armstrong. He's with Crutchlow and Aleix as well at COTA of all places. Who set it up? Who knows. If they were professional cyclist then it might be different.

    What's he done to make you cringe? Are you sure your an Aussie or just live here because it's a shit hot place to live?

    Jack's is an Aussie who is a bit rough around the edges but who gives a fuck, like most of us are. He's the type of bloke you would have a beer with at the pub.

    His mullet and Spanish accent were a bit cringe but also hilarious. Also called Neil Hodgson " a bit of wanker " on tv.
    A bit cringe for old buggers like myself but also refreshing.

    I thoroughly approve his mo' though.
