Still not surprised. those wins where he rode away were truly doped.
He's a CSC/Saxo rider - a Riis boy - so he goes where Hamilton, Basso, F.Schleck, Lombardi went.

I'm waiting for Riis to tell us how 'shocked' he is that another of his riders was caught with his hand in the cookie jar.

On the subject of 2008 and the Olympics, does anyone remember a move that Luigi made towards the end of the race. I think he just powered away from a group on the flat to catch up with the leaders.

Actually I remember it being on more of (slight) descent, which would figure since he is one of the best descenders in the peloton. But I would love to be corrected.

I just have a memory of him making a move and thinking 'wow he looks like he's on a motorbike'. I think it was quite a big gap and he made it up very fast.

I thought it was a flat part of the course. I think he caught the SS group and SS is also considered to be one of the best descenders as well.

However, I maybe wrong.

I don't remember that descent being very technical, though. I seem to remember it being very wide, with only a slight downgrade. There must be a Youtube video of it. I do remember him just powering away from that group and catching the leaders very quickly.

Once again i have to insist he can't have used CERA because they caught rebellin and pfannberger with it in this race and they always test the medalists.

The swiss team actually raced really well or had a really good tactic compared to GB

So you provide us with two links neither of which have anything to do with the attack we were talking about.

As for your 'others tested positive so my boy must be clean' argument.

I have something for you.

Olympics 2008: Final 10km, Schleck, Rebellin and Sanchez were clear and looked pretty much nailed on to contest the medals. Rogers and Kolobnev were chasing at 20-30s but were not closing the gap, then there was a small peloton another 20-30s behind them. Cancellara attacked from this group, solo, and was across to Rogers and Kolobnev in a flash. Then they could hardly hold his wheel as he cruised up towards the leaders. I think Kolobnev and Rogers may have given him a turn or two just before they made the junction. It was a serious display of power from Fabian and if they'd only caught the leaders a km or two earlier he might've even won the fricking sprint.
