Default The Sky-Con-O-Meter. Predictions on how much more ridiculous they can get

Predictions:

- 1-2 in the remaining time trial.

- Froome to ride up to breakaway attempts by top tier climbers and then attack himself, slowdown and then ride on the front again.

- Sky doms to pace set for 50kmís at a time up HC mountains

- Cav to win one or more stages before Tour end.

- The grupetto to finish outside the time limit day after day.

- Known climbers being chased down by Sky doms.


Anything else I missed?

they have already lost credibilty with anyone in possesion of a brain so what they do from here on out doesn't matter. everyone knows they are doping it's just making sure that no one can prove it.

froome could win the time trial on a unicycle and the uk postal fanboys would still lap it up.

- Rogers drops Evans on a climb. Maybe even beats him in the final time trial.

I can be pretty damned confident about it. I was confident with Stephen Schumacher. Same with Ricco and Armstrong and Indurain. We have seen this farce too many times.

Forget Wiggins. Rogers is the tell.

I'm as sure as you can be without a positive test or a police raid. Which is pretty damn sure.
