You mean the procedure that wasn't even illegal at the time he did it and definitely doesn't enhance performance?

Everything Kittel said is true.

Astana is a team run by dopers, financed by autocrats and full of shady riders.

At present there are no definite rules. There is, for example, Jonathan Vaughters, who I think is fighting for a clean sport. On the other hand, he confessed in the USADA report that he too was a doping sinner.

“Solutions must be found, but they are not there yet. As an example there is the manifesto of several major newspapers…I find that a good initiative.”

“I would never go. Never. Money is not everything,” he said. “I need to feel good in a team. I already heard rumours of Astana about what type of team it is. The Kazakhs, even the non-riders, simply have a different mentality.”

Flawed leadership perhaps, but its an initiative.

You really think the UV-light thing is doping? It's just humbug.

nah,it's just kittel who piszed me off.nothing against the practice, pretty sure that it's healthier and works better than my stupid coldrex tablets.

on the long run,kittel will be proved wrong when he will sign with astana in 2019 people change. people grow up and stop being whiners. just look at phil, who would have guessed back in 2005 that he will become best friend forever with vino and rebellin?
kittel, the great nation of kazakhstan is awaiting for you.

It is clinic stuff. Supposedly removing blood and treating it with UV lights then putting it back in is suppose to boost performance. Something about boosting red blood cells or oxygen or something like that, I forget. But anyways, probably a better discussion for the clinic.
