Has it been covered here that Sky aren't abandoning Tenerife after all, they're sending Edvald Boa Hagen there sometime a couple of months into the new year.

So just sit back and watch Boasson Hagen, after having done one of the 'magical' Tenerife camps, go on to win a couple of the biggest classics out there.

No doubt the Italians are *****ing in their forums about the Padova Investigation while Sky and Garmin made everyone look like a joke.

It is an anglo saxon forum. There are plenty of non anglo saxons posting, that you only appear in Sky related threads as is your wont shows how narrow your agenda is.

You'll just need to wait. They'll come once Jack Bobridge dominates the stage racing calendar and tops it off with a thumping victory in the Tour.

We've seen 4 previously decent to average riders elevate their levels unthinkably high in the space of about 18 months. I think we are entitled to question and discuss Sky's probable doping practices to death.

I think one of the reasons people are looking at Sky differently is their self admitted "special " relations with the ASO / UCI.
I don't remember Green Edge or Garmin having meetings making "presentations" etc...
I think they are all dodgy.. not just Sky but Sky are looking extra "special"

Plenty of Celt related threads in here should your bloodlines feel the need.

It would be better if you could provide the names of the doctors which are more 'dodgy' than Lienders.

Without evidence you cannot be believed.

Why say it if you don't believe it yourself?
