In that IM exchange with Andreu, Vaughters said Moreau was clean when they were both at CA - think he said his (Moreau's) hct. was 42.
Moreau's suspicion index was 7 (first french rider)
In 2007 he was surely on blood booster, crushing the french road championship an indecent way, but you're right he certainly had no logistic (the extra BBs) to last more than one week in a GT.
In 2008 he had a very weird DNS in the beginning of the TdF, even his DS didn't know why he was leaving, I guess he was on CERA and was aware of the oncoming new test.

I still don't understand how Moreau's hct was 42 when he was riding with Vaughters, Moreau was the only french guy to be close to Armstrong/Beloki/Ullrich in 2000/2001, was often the best french rider in the TdF, was at least once stopped by the fed doctors for low cortisol parameters etc. Plus he never said a word against doping, is often arrogant about doping on twitter, bashing Bassons for example.

IMO clearly "part of the problem".

agree, just a bit of PR. Astana are now leading the Squeaky Clean brigade and will be ready to join the MPCC.

neh, After the first mountain stage in the tour, we will see Kash rising up as the captain for the team (birdsong looses 10 minutes) After that it is fighting with AC, Froome and AS in the mountains and gets the third place after taking 2 min ++ on Andy in the final tt

Good plan, but winning TdF shouldn't prevent Kash from going after the Vuelta as well. Only lightweights will be in Spain, no problem for Kash.

Fuglsang can only surprise at this point. Everybody (well, some) thinks hes the dogs breakfast.

He will skip the Vuelta because of the spanish armadas mental health after the Kazakh invasion in the tour
