Domino effect

This is the sort of thing some of us are hoping for. However more is needed to get the process moving at pace.

Two-time triathlon world champion Spencer Smith was part of this team. He then returned to triathlon and tested positive for nandrolone. Got off on a technicality.

Fron the road.cc article

However, DeCanio added: “The team definitely knew that some of the riders were dirty. If you wanted to use drugs, you wouldn’t lose your job. Doping wasn’t pushed – they weren’t giving drugs out. The team wanted to hire riders who knew how to dope themselves, did it on their own and who would come to races prepared.”

According to The Times, both DeCanio and the other individuals who have supplied information to it say that while doping was not organised at team level, manager Sean Yates was aware that it was going on at the outfit.


Sounds like we are getting confirmation of Yates' Team Sky approach on "driving the car and looking the other way". Real question is where was Brailsford in all of this. "sitting in front of his PC and instructing PR the other way" perhaps?

And what is Julian Clark's bone with BC/Sky for coming out now? Skeleton's starting to come out now... The sound of bones rattling...

Brailsford looks like the operation's beard. None of the press can raise questions about him without impugning the British track program and its results. No one wants to question the track results.

Nah, Sky said Yates departure had nothing to do with their omertà policy, (oops I mean zero tolerance policy.) Sky wouldn't lie would they?

...and could show us a clean-looking passport via our internal testing program whilst doing so. Not much point in being ambitious if you can't achieve some ambitious results, right?


Who would I be describing - for another thread, perhaps?

As far as I can see there is still no mention of this story on the UK Cycling Weekly site. So much for the Armstrong scam leading to a new era of fearless investigative journalism...

Unless there was an impact in the world of organised fun rides / sportives then they most likely aren't interested.

CW don't have much interest in any British related doping.
