hmmm....no, I think that I'm saying that Eki IS a big star. Just
because Americans don't recognize his name and just because he hasn't
won a major Tour doesn't mean he isn't a big star. Two gold medals?
Big, gold star. Just my humble opinion. To me, a "productive" career
is being a successful domestique for a major team for a number of
years. Remember, most guys can't ever even ride in "the" Tour, much
less finish 14. Big star. He's not Lance, no.....
