I honestly shake my head.
Full scale program with logistics will smash the mid ranking dabbler.
Do you think Steven Hounard has $90k lying around to spend on a doping program incorporating AICAR and blood transfusions!?
Does Hounard have Yates, Sutton, Rogers and Tenerife?
The majority suggestions I have had on Froome are claiming that he went to the Vuelta with his very own DIY kit and that was what made him perform as he did. Seems very similar to Hounard that..
Also if not so then why does Froome get magically promoted to the elite group of dopers whilst he has done nothing to justify it and he has not got the talent at the moment to deserve such trust?
And also I would assume you would claim that Wiggins was doping as well in the Vuelta, so then why did Froome perform better? He may have had a better reaction to it than Wiggins, but considering that Wiggins is a far superior rider that excuse only stretches so far?
And also the point was not solely to draw parallels with Hounard that is merely a point, the fact is that doping could only have taken Froome so far concerning his perfomances in the Vuelta 2011.
Ps: Dont be selective
