Huge difference between a scripted film crew and a cyclingnews interview in my mind, yes.

Talking about the season past only a month after the team completely botched the Vuelta and someone died ffs - where Brad was advised so much he felt hounded (what I call micromanaging, clearly definitions differ) vs a movie where there were probably takes and editing and etc etc, yes.

Emotional people speak from the heart. The emotion is clear in the interview I am referring to.

Not sure which other interviews you are referring to, but I believe a lot of them. Just not the scripted ones. Like the Sky interview where it was like a robot talking about the USADA reasoned decision. Good grief. That was not Brad, that was a talking head and a teleprompter.

Good on ya Darryl for taking the moral high ground in the discussion and not being drawn into a sh!t fight.

Tiernan Locke on a weight loss program over Xmas.

Are weight loss drugs performance enhancing drugs...?

Some are banned and others aren't. Marta Bastianelli and Aurélien Duval have both sat out two years for taking appetite suppressants.

These bananas will be individually selected through a process that goes into the tiniest detail ensuring the banana is prepared to meet the needs of the rider.

All bananas will be tested to ensure they have not tested positive for anything untoward prior to being eaten by a sky rider.

Sky's April training camp

Despite having been ill after the Settimana Coppi e Bartali, the capabilities Tiernan-Locke displayed at Sky's TENERIFE training camp in April were instrumental in orchestrating his move for 2013.

"I had an SRM on and we were doing all these timed efforts and tests. Tim Kerrison was there analysing all that data, doing all the blood lactate checks and all that.

"I hadn't used power in a while and it surprised me. We set off at different intervals for an hour-long climbing test. It was half of their Tour de France team and me, and although we couldn't see each other because we set off at different times, I was right up there.

"Ever since that training camp I've changed a few things; my position has changed a bit and I'm not pushing such a big gear."

Spinning FTW!

Brad slows his cadence in TTs to go faster for the same power, but continues to ride an aerobically challenging 100+ rpm in the hills.

Now JTL is changing down and spinning up on the uphills too.

Lance would be proud.
