Congrats achieving your objectives.
Mods if you are in today maybe time to consider some action, or maybe time to close the shop soon. Not much value dialing in here much longer. Worse than the post season crit circus.
In the history of this thread, some of the highlights have included the suggestion that Sky caused the death of their own soigneur, who they were using as a guinea pig for the programme that they then implemented on Wiggins; we've had the suggestion that Chris Froome came second in the Tour, while riding at half pace and having to constantly check his power meter to make sure he kept his wattage within plausible limits; a fairly lengthy discussion of which side of Kilburn high-road Wiggins grew up in; the assertion that Wiggins is definitely working with Ferrari, but unfortunately the slam-dunk evidence of this, that one poster has seen is, ermm, secret; and now we've had the allegation that UCI were complicit in a plot to make Wiggins win the Tour, in order to sell tickets to an event that they weren't organising, didn't profit from, and was already sold out before the Tour.
I'm just interested, in your considered opinion, exactly why is today
the day that this thread has become worse than the post-season crit circus, and will the Hog, Dear Wiggo, Dirty Works et al also be receiving a bonus from Sky for similar services rendered?
