indeed, for some everything that happens in cycling is clinic related. . . . i am pretty sure contador hunger knock at PN wasn't the result of anything clinic related but the result of him being constantly attacked over 30 or so km's and since he was alone and had to defend himself he forgot to eat during that time.
ofc it's much easier to instead of watching the race just looking at the results spot something strange and scream " he injected his dog's blood bag by mistake the previous night"
anyway out with the clinic stuff, and in with the proper discussion.
jan's on les deux alpes is indeed one we shouldn't forget, once again just like contador he was isolated and panicked.
