Without a doubt. They're just like their owner. They want world domination and are greedy.

If Wilco Kelderman had not clipped a moto, Sky could have won all 3 GTs. Throw in Kwia's good Spring and the Murdouchs have got a good return for their money.

This. It will be the beginning of the end of Sky. Other teams are pretty pissed by their dominance, I reckon...


Since when has what the Pro Teams thought mattered a sh1t to the UCI ?

Thomas or Landa would have lost to Dumoulin. 100%. Certainly if he still had Kelderman as well.

Poels was very good but he's done it before Sky. Same with Nieve. It's Moscon I don't buy. And David López was a bit too good today. Froome goes without saying.

And obviously having everybody at their best at the same time is suspicious in itself, even if "their best" is not inherently suspicious on a case by case basis.

If this is Sky's back-up team, they put up a frightful performance. I thought their Tour team was dominant but the Vuelta team performed at a different level.

To be fair, we're talking about pro cycling. Cheating is part of the sport.

Yeah, you can find arguments to defend Poels & Nieve.....but Moscon?? The way he's ridden the whole race has been like a huge neon sign flashing: "We're back to the pro-wrestling era."

13th on the Angliru. 5th in Paris-Roubaix.

Only 1guy might have come close and he's called George Hincapie.

I'd rather have USPS and LA bully the TDF than this racist cheater dominate the peloton.

UCI should do something about this. They cannot allow the US Postal 2.0.

You just can't allow a team to have 6 riders out 15. It is just stupid and ridiculous. It is not that they buy the best talent. No. Porte was no one before he went to Sky. In fact he was worthless for Contador. Now you have Moscon. WTF. You just cannot allow this guy to outclimb everybody while helping somebody else. UCI, I know Froome is your baby but don't over do it!

Maybe Sunweb will be Sky 2.0?

The way they're going, it won't be long before Sky + Sunweb will make up half the guys up the final climb.

Live Coverage of Vuelta a Espana - Stage 21
Sky though, have never shown any collective weakness in this race and some of their team even have a Tour de France in their legs. Perhaps their performance has best been personified by Moscon - a rider who made his Grand Tour debut here but found himself with the necessary horsepower to drop Grand Tour contenders, repeatedly. For a rider who came into this race as a Classics man, he has certainly had an astonishing three weeks.

I think Sky will have competition soon, though. I'm guessing Sunweb. Clearly Movistar and Astana are using old-school methods which just doesn't cut it in the modern peloton.
