I am someone who doesnt want doping in cycling and am willing to believe something isnt right even though I did buy in to the transparency idea at the start of the year. Stating you know wiggins is working with ferrari is slanderous and dangerous if it isnt true so if it is you should back it up otherwise its plain rubbish.
All you have done is fuel an idea and given it no substance so for the moment its bull until you give it substance.
Apologies no offence intended. I'm enjoying the debate.
What say we go backwards and connect the dots.
Tour de France 2012 - Sky literally rip the legs of every other team to the point they cannot attack (several quotes provided by riders on opposing teams).
Sky not only ripped off peoples legs but they did it with 6 guys (minus the sprinter, his helper and the dude they lost week 1 - ****sou).
Rogers during the Tour taunted the opposition by saying that no one could attack and if they did it didn't matter because he, Little Richie and the other henchmen were all punching 450w+ day in, day out and they'd eventually catch any foolhardy attacker in a short space of time.
Froome-dawg goes a little crazy, attacks, slows, soft pedals, gestures to the yellow jersey like a training ride whilst seasoned climbers (Nibili etc.) in the distance barely abele to keep up. He did this on more than one occasion.
Wiggins and Froome looking like concentration camp refugees somehow manage to go 1-2 in the ITT's and producing more power than the greatest TT'er of all time F.Cancellera. Producing more power for over an hour than guys 10kg more than them! That's like a feather weight fighter knocking down a heavyweight champion of the world!
Froome 10 minutes off the pace at Romandie - each stage.
Froome sick with illness that he can't train for 6-8 weeks of the year. Shows no form in any other race.
Wiggins to his credit had been in form all year but constant comments in the regards to being like Postal, loving Lance, 500 tests etc. are worrying.
are you getting it now....?
They talk of warming down, reverse periodisation, new methods of training dubbed "marginal gains" they head to the number one doper paradise in the world - Tenerife...
...looks a little crazy does it not?
Tenerife, Yates, Rogers, Lance, etc etc etc etc etc.
With all that cycling for the better part of 20 years has been mired in doping. Riddled with doping. The UCI has a lot of questions over its head. The same people who presided over the doping eras (plural) are still in control. Cyclists, DS and the like have been doping and working with questionable doctors since about 1987.
What changed in 2012 that one team (only) could dominate to such a degree but also be the the line in the sand of clean cycling?
I don't get it.
