That's also my guess and there can only be one affected rider.

Sure his GT weren't as good as Vuelta 2011, but uhm... you're completely wrong (again)
4th in the Vuelta alone suggests that winning the Tour de l'Avenir betrays some GT talent.

Except for that Belgian guy, but he won l'Avenir from an escape

Lolzzz
They're just trolling at this point. Why not just be open about it if it is doping related?

Group was 40+ cyclists big. It's not bad I agree, but he still didn't do anything in the classics which means Argos has no one for the stage races or classics next year.

The better way to go about this is to remind Pisti that Mollema is exactly the same age as a certain someone, and is 4th at the Vuelta (with Froome and Wiggins) really that bad compared to the groundbreaking gc contention epithany that 3rd place in the giro was.

I suppose that makes you good enough to become cyclist of the year in the Netherlands these days.
