Worst thing about this disgusting corner of the web: you want Sky to be doping, you want cycling to be dirty. You wallow in the appallingly negativity of the place, waiting every day for new victims and defend it all with a sort of world-weariness. You use it to belittle and dismiss anyone that disagrees: it;s a sad little bullying scenario for a short period you are the big men. Ooh

You think this is only cycling forum in the world? The only reason I bothered posted here was a reaction to the appallingly negativity you lot love to wallow in.

Pro-cycling doesn't belong to you, you are not the arbiters of the sport you play at being. Actually why I am bothering? Bye

So what caused the Wiggins crash? To me the possibilities are,

1. He was busy smoking a spliff of EPO rather than concentrating on the road.
2. All a publicity stunt to boost sales of the book.
3. He was worried about visits by random testers and he thought they were less likely to bother him if he was in hospital.
4. He lacks a basic knowledge of geography (seen by the fact that he has lied repeatedly about where he lived as a child) and thought he was on a cycle path so didn't look out for traffic.
5. Some **** wasn't looking where he going when he exited the petrol station.

Of course, anyone suggesting number 5 is a 'fanboy'.

And as for 2013: I dont think it will be any repeat of last year. With the Olympics over and triumphed as well as UCI and McQuaid under pressure it will be to much of a risk asking for "a little favour" from McQuaid during this moment in time. It will be a low key year hoping they can stick to their guns 2014 depending on the situation in the cycling world then.

Wiggo has already been preparing the ground for a suitable explanation ("I hadn´t fun") with Skys shift of focus. When Froome struggles in the mountains and loosing six minutes in the time trials (as in Beijing) it could always be excused "lack of experience".

I would agree. Brailsford was talking of Tour "domination" for years to come in August. I think that concept went out the window when the USADA reason decision dropped.

You can win. Just don't win by too much and for too long!

Depends on the 'narrative' the UCI and the sponsors want to create. They will choose the option that will make them the most money.

If they think that there is money 'clean Brits socking it to dirty johnny foreigner' - then it'll be more of the same.

We don't know if we are merely hitting the reset button back to 1999. Looking at the degree of support that McQuaid has within the upper reaches of the sport and the clear attempt to sweep the UCI corruption issue under the carpet

Everyone has got the memo with the talking points. You can play rider bingo.

'In the past'

'Biopassport'

'New generation'

'Most tested athletes'

'Zero-tolerance'

'cleanest ever'

I wouldn't make it a drinking game because it is the short cut to alcoholism

Hog - I thought you might like this other early indication of Froome's elite level skills.

Back when he was Chris Froome of Kenya.

I wonder what other thread links the three...

Wasn't that Vino's excuse when they gave him Kash's blood bag by mistake?

I wonder what other thread links the three...
"The sport has changed so much"

"Additional controls"

"We're talking about events 10-15 years ago"


Chris Froome from Kenya! I wonder what happened to him? Doesn't look like he would have amounted to much. (And yes he's in good company with the other two!)
