Here we to again:

JTL to hit the program start of December.

Quote:
A striking feature of the Sky team that carried Bradley Wiggins to Tour de France victory in July was the noticeably gaunt appearance of a number of its riders, and Tiernan-Locke has been requested to follow suit.

"No stone is unturned with an outfit like Sky they look at every ounce," Tiernan-Locke said. "If they can identify any area where you can improve, you have to buy into it. I'll be working hard over Christmas that's always a difficult time because everyone else is relaxing and tucking in because we have a second training camp in Majorca in January, and I need to be ready for that."
Quote:
In spite of the speculation that has shrouded the status of some riders and staff, and the media attention garnered by the Lance Armstrong affair, Tiernan-Locke was adamant that he was entering the WorldTour at a positive time in the fight against doping.

"It's a good time now, but it's also peace of mind for the future. You would have to be an absolute idiot to even contemplate taking anything, he said. "The stuff that people are talking about now is going back several years.

"I couldn't have got the results I've got so far, especially last season, if there wasn't a level playing field, so the whole drug thing hasn't really affected me.

Even Sky didn't think he was worthy of a new contract before his Vuelta '11 performance. Now if he truely was a massive talent who was just having health issues etc. you'd expect Sky to know that better than anyone, in which case they'd have him locked up in a nice contract. But no, they were as surprised as anyone when he started demolishing everyone...

Are you sure? What signs were they then Mister 19?

Before the Vuelta '11 most people who knew about Froome (not many) remembered him crashing into the commissaire at the U23 Worlds.

He does. At least 10kg.

I'm sure he'll gain some power with that weight loss as well

If Froome were to be clean it is obvious that he is certainly one of the best GC riders in the world. Most likely the best or second.

I would be interested to know who you think would be the best if Froome was second best?

[B]So him thus competing and narrowly losing out to those three, who may have been aided by other aids, is certainly not all that suspicious.

10 minutes+ is not a narrow defeat in a GT. Also, can you post your reasons why you have lumped JRod in with the other two, other than him being Spanish?

Not your finest post young Froome.
