Rumours are just that, rumours and so far no one has been able to come up with anything more than a rumour over either the Winn test or anything on Sutton.

Cycling seems to be a race situation where there is lots of smoke without a fire.
au contraire.

Maybe you missed USADA's investigation, Festina scandal, Op Puerto, Op Padova etc etc

seems to me that there were lots of and still are fires burning away.

Yes! Sad day when we say cycling is a victim of too much rumor mungering!

If these guys would stop transfusing the blood of their pets and microdosing we might believe them when they say they're innocent.

In cycling when there's smoke generally there's an inferno!

We need a little more proof than a rumour though. Can you see BC reviewing the case and deciding that actually it was a deliberate effort by Winn to use a supplement containing ephedrine and he was lucky enough to find one without it listed on the contents? Is ephedrine even still banned now?

Default Shane Sutton

Does anyone think that Brailsford will get ride of Shane Sutton !!! They are joined at the hip and go back to the 80's when Sutton used to train here in North Wales..
Several people have quoted instances of his doping in the 80's - he says 'never failed a dope test' so who is Brailsford going to believe ????.
Think Sky are only going to get ride of the EPO generation !!

The answer to your question is a resounding yes. Ephedrine has been banned for years now. Years. Shouldn't be but it is. Should be a TUE exemption for legitimate reasons. But there is the problem. A decade ago almost every cyclist had a TUE for something, most were cortisone or some puffer for breathing issues. Hence why the WADA code doesn't leave much room. People abused simple privileges when they can, especially in pro sports. They still do.

Ffs it's an award ceremony; the sporting Luvvies, back slapping all round. Hard to believe you would find this hard to believe. Says a lot about you and where you are coming from.

I was expecting Wiggo to "out" the lot of them in his speech. Instead, he cracks a few jokes, thanks the team and promises not to swear.

What on earth did he think he was doing?
