I never said anything about Wiggins peperation. I have no idea how its going.
How is talking about whether Wiggins can win the Giro or not taking things out of context?

Sven Nys doesn't even drink during New Year and goes to bed at midnight, now that's preparation. Not drinking like a baboon and smoking like a chimney.

You know that after period of smoking hematocrit level raises?
It's part of basic preparations. Latest method from Sky laboratory.

It's too expensive for teams to keep riders for extensive periods of time in resorts on high altitude.
Cigarettes are economical solution in the era of financial crisis and expense cutting.
Depending on goals and phase of preparation, every rider has his own program of cigarette consumption. Also depending on training program, cigarettes of different amount of CO are used.

Alcohol consumption is still in research phase, but there are evidences that it facilitates respiratory exchange after periods of consumption.

Wiggo is, obviously, pioneer in new training approach.
We all know how important is to apply modern methods in training, and what advantage it can give a rider.

Wiggo for the double!
