I cannot prove absolutely that he has been doping since then, it is basicly a matter of opinion, you have yours, I have mine. Mine is that he has been doping all his career like almost every cyclist in the peloton today.
Cycling has failed

Analysis (since discarded by Captaintbag) based on publicly accessible Mapei data would seem to indicate otherwise.

Hasn't Basso been making his data freely available online for a few months/years now?

Even if he is doping, at least he's being semi-transparent.

.........According to CONI, Elisa Basso is forbidden “to join or to hold any position within the Italian Olympic Committee, Italian national sporting federations or the associated sporting disciplines; to frequent sporting facilities, spaces designated for athletes and their coaches; or to take part in sporting events that are held in national territory or are organised by the forenamed sporting entities.”

Yikes.....

I always liked the name UFOBasso better as that year he was seriously like an unidentified flying mountain climbing object. But 2006 was a site to behold. Riding up mountains, like it was a leisurely sunday recovery ride, breathing through his nose, winning by 10minutes over noted GT superpower José Enrique Gutiérrez putting 12min into Simoni and almost 20min into the previous 2 edition winners Cunego and Savoldelli.

But you have to remember this Basso was only intending to dope for the Tour de France....so this performance was obviously clean and remember we now know that everyone stopped doping in 2006.......

I dont think we'll ever see UFOBasso/RoboBasso again.....and i think if we did the sport would have to have taken some serious steps backwards

Elisa Basso is the partner of Eddie Mazzoleni.

You can do your own Googling in him if you don't know his history.
I watched him ride in the Giro in 07, on his way to the finish in Bergamo, his home town. I didn't really know who he was at the time, but me and a mate both commented on him as he went past. His eyes looked wild.

I guess he wasn't one of the early adopters of that new Chinese EPO, though. Fingers crossed, I suppose.

Don't mind me, I will make this prediction every year 'til he retires.
