Identifying one-handed riding as an indicator of doping is one thing. Making up conspiracies that are easily proven to be complete and utter b*llocks is something else.

And in the imortal words of Corporal Jones, "They don't like it up 'em Captain Mainwairing." The Germans didn't, and neither do the anti-Sky faction.
Wallace, no!!

Don't you see : Tinman has been BOUGHT OFF!! Don't fall for it.

He's tryng to get the mod's to close the Sky thread. He wants to conceal the truth, just when we finally have the conspiracy almost fully discovered.

You owe it to cycling, no, you owe it humanity; don't let the Sky apologists win!!

Indurain sent Wiggins a cap, you know. With his autograph.

Just saying....tentacles everywhere...be on your guard...

Ludo...is he the ex Begium champion who told testers he'd been taking stuff, but then passed the test anyway?
Being signed as DS for Sky so he can share his secrets??

Don't let them close this thread down: we could get to 1,000 pages, 10,000 posts and 1,000,000 views before Christmas, with or without taking anything dodgy! What more proof do you need!!!

'Gosh, thanks for the compliments.....

Folks: REPORT PROBLEMS TO THE MODS. It is that simple.

And I am the only mod associated with CN in any respect outside of the forum, by the way.

I hope your theories about cycling are better groundd than your theories about the forum mods.

We got some general information, but no specifics about how cycling is quantified and rewarded inside the IOC.
Of course, Box Hill was sold out well before the Tour even started, but I'm sure the certain knowledge of what was coming played a key part in my decision to buy one.

In that case, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Crying about forum participants who won't yield to your world view, right or wrong, does nothing.

So, go ahead and disprove the conspiracies. I've got one and it's full-on crazy. My crackpot theory is Pat and Hein assisted in making the Sky 2012 fairy tale to boost Olympics interest/turnout.

Your turn. Tear it down.

I don't think the Olympics would have much to do with it. The UCI wants to recreate Armstrong. A new champion in a country outside the traditional cycling base brings more money into cycling. It grows the sport far better than putting on races in third world countries. Conveniently, Australia, Canada, and Britain all get their first GT winners. All English speaking too. Nice. What are the odds for that?

I have it on good authority that they are both friends of Alf Garnett and 'helped' with West 'am's bid for the stadium too.

They were however suspiciously absent when 1 million other people stood out in the rain watching the women's race, maybe because none of them ride for Sky, hmm.

You could watch on Box Hill for free without a ticket....I did as did thousands of others.
