WELL?

Does anyone apart from me think there's been something fishy about this team for a while now? Today's performance in Dauphiné reminded me of the bygone days of Lance's teammates at the Tour, when all of them (except he, of course) were doped to the gills ....

No offence intended.

Default Pat agrees.

Pat McQuaid agrees with you in this interview.

“In the big mountain stages, you never see the (team) leader surrounded by three or four domestiques. He usually finishes the climb on his own. That wasn’t the case during the big period of EPO,” said McQuaid.

If only journalists had the balls to point these things out. What would cycling be?

What's Contador got to do with this? He's currently suspended, in case you didn't know. We're talking SKY and Wiggo, Froome and the whole bunch here.

Wiggins compared his team to Banesto and USPS in the post race interview, does no one else think that that is a bit odd?

Uh, what? This isn't even about Contador. How many Saxo guys do you see finishing the climbs with Contador anyway?

Maybe Froome, Porte, and Rogers also have swimming coaches.

Team Sky is just physiologically better than the rest of the guys out there.
