so .... a long story which is meant as what can only be described as an obscure claim to fame ends up in saying that Bole either dopes or he doesn't. Well, thanks for that.

I mean to go from a stated policy of hiring British doctors who hadn't previously worked in cycling to hiring Geert Leinders is unforgivable.
spot on. Couldn't possibly agree more.

If Wiggins had designs on GC then one has to conclude that he was looking for something other than support riders and experience. Hiring Lienders gave us the answer to that.
it's funny cosnidering you find it weird he left garmin, where he had a measly salary compared to sky, yet you attack him riding in track, because there he couldn't make nearly as much money as in road. now what is it?

You'd think after the Armstrong Affair that there be a price on truth. But with Sky there is.

Sad.

even in this topic this post stands out as being full of ignorance. yes I remember well looking at teams what country there bikes are from, or who owns them. quickstep is now a czech team and saxo russian?
