"British Cycling overhauls medical services after independent review"

So the Sky way is not the right way? Surprise surprise......

A fairly incredible first 10 minutes of coverage of the TDF by the UK's ITV where the great Imlach and his colleagues Boardman and Dave Millar absolutely speared Sky. Making it clear that whilst technically they may not have breached rules, their entire conduct stank to high heavens both before and after the Wiggins TUE revelations broke. A very brave move by a broadcaster to question the credibility of leading performers at the outset of three weeks of wall to wall coverage.

I'd expect nothing less from the outstanding Imlach but I'm still amazed that the broadcasters let them do it. I can see there being very real consequences for Brailsford and Sky from such impartial coverage.

Inside knowledge that the end is near and putting the boot in now takes no courage. Like kicking a man when he is down and out.

They are 5 years too late.

Yep. Looks like we're going for the 'low key season then nuke the TdF' coz the cat's out of the bag and we've got away with it option.

I'm cheering for karma this TdF, frankly.

Only question will be if spectators finally punch them off their motor bikes. How dumb are they, cheating that obvious on the first day.

Not Clean.

Crap all year, all of the team except Kwiatkowski and Kirienka.

Turns up to Dusseldorf and their Dauphine complete and utter lack of form team wise relative to 2016; it is just too much to take.

Seriously Team Sky? Did you have to go to the absurd. Porte is the gauge.

Dauphine destroyed your whole team alone.

4 riders on their squad put 35-40 seconds into him today! 40 seconds.

It's the fact the team as a whole has sucked all year long and now boom! We've got the form.

Not clean. Looks beyond dirty.

Either be on form all year, or drop the charade. Didn't believe it with Armstrong, so not buying this.

You guys had better go back to sucking as a team asap!! Your number is up...

Frightening dominance, Thomas beating Tony Martin in what was Martins speciality and seasons goal is freakish in itself but to do it after coming back from a bad injury in the Giro.....that takes some doing. Froome took time out of all his GC rivals so the sky train will be getting oiled in readiness for riding tempo riding 450w up mountains again.

Yep unless more bad weather and crashes cause upsets it is going to be a boring 3 weeks to watch this Tour.

I can't imagine ASO are pleased either. Too obvious.

I blame ASO for this as much as the UCI.
