It is all being said in the Jose Ibarguren thread where he is now team Doctor and was Team Doctor for Gilbert at Omega Pharma Lotto last year.

BMC should've hired Jose rather than Gilbert.

PS wonder do Omega Pharma use their riders as guinea pigs unbeknown to them?

If I understand correctly .Team doctor ibarguen worked for Lotto last year, was named in the Mantua-case and worked for Saunier Duval in the past year.

I mean... COME ON. Wow I wonder why all their riders ride faster than ****ing lightning.
Also explains Gilberts super year last year. Not to mention the Saunier Duval super duper trio of Cobo, Piepoli and Ricco

All joking aside, if your profession is to prepare riders for races, he's absolutely at his peak this season.

Ferrari & Conconi, eat your heart out.

Chapeau Sir.

Indeed, those riders are doped to their eyeballs. A shame, I used to like Boonen, but what's going on at quick step is fairly obvious.

why is lefevre still allowed to manage a team?
I wonder what he pays the UCI.

"Patrick Lefevre, 30 years of doping", was the title of an article that appeared in 2007 in a belgian newspaper. Lefevre went to court and the newspaper had to pay a 500.000 fine to Lefevre.
In the article, eight people (most or all(?) of whom wanted to stay anonymous) claimed to have witnessed teamdoping at Mapei/Quick Step. The witnesses included cyclists and an italian doctor.

http://06.live-radsport.ch/details_5...ht_Doping.html

back then, Boonen said this in defense of Lefevre:
Quote:
Quickstep-Profi und Sprintstar Tom Boonen hat sich mittlerweile auch zu den Anschuldigungen geäußert. Er glaube nicht, dass es diesen anonymen Fahrer überhaupt gibt. "Das ist unmöglich. Ich glaube nicht eine Sekunde daran, dass ein Fahrer von uns solche Äußerungen macht, die im übrigen falsch sind. ....Ich habe weiterhin volles Vertrauen in Patrick. Er ist mehr als nur mein Manager. Er ist jemand, der uns Rennfahrer ständig anhält, sauberen Radsport zu betreiben. Man sagt, wo Rauch ist, ist auch Feuer. Aber solche anonymen Äußerungen sind lächerlich", so Boonen.
