yes, the absence of some people who would be first in line to do so with Wiggins in condeming this quote from Cadel is notable. One must be consistent on these things.

Ill give them the benefit of the doubt for a few more hours that they havent seen the thread yet.

"Transitioning from white jersey to Tour winner in a year, that's never happened in history, has it?
Sounds like Cadel is scared of TVG

LeMond, Ullrich, Contador, Schelck won White/Yellow.

Just read the interview, thought this 'low impact' virus that made him under perform for most of last season was suspect, then he said that.

It's all very well not to try to delete Armstrong from the annuls of the sport, but to aspire to 'recover' like him from an illness given the current climate is a Wiggins's sized gaff and then some

Surprised to read Evan's open his mouth and put his foot in it.

But Evans is a doper. Look at his palmares.

I don't care if Evans shoots cocaine in his eyeballs in front of an audience 1 - it's still an incredibly tone deaf, stupid thin to say!

1. Obviously I care, since I want doping eradicated, it's a figure of speech...

Wiggins says stuff that is seriously stupid in hindsight, or in the heat of a rant. this was code red stupid, right now, in the calm of a post race interview.

People don't look at Ullrich's veiled admission as a stupid comment.

I agree: he smashed it out of the park. I wonder what the interviewer thought as he said it

Ullrich's already been busted.

Ullrich's already retired.

Ullrich didn't hold out LA as a blooming role model!

the interviewer should have gently tapped him on the shoulder and asked him if he really meant it - that's the way to get the best out of Cadel...
