No Kiryienka, Rowe, Moscon, Castroviejo, Knees, Stannard types.


Well that same Kiryienka and Castroviejo rode for Movistar, but weren't as close as good like they are at Sky. Knees, Stannard and Rowe are no better than Erviti, Oliveira and Amador, maybe even worse...

Sky winning 3 GTs in the same year, just might be a tad overkill for the sport. Maybe even Brailsford saw that.

Geraint Thomas' Tour de France trophy stolen

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/geraint-thomas-tour-de-france-trophy-stolen/#disqus_thread

Some of the comments on that article just killed me

Martin Baisch
who steals a TDF trophy? You cant use it, you cant sell it (who'd buy it???). should have rather stolen a bike....... not very bright!

It's a bowl, it has lots of uses. You can use it to whip cream, put some fresh fruit in it, serve Tramadol - possibilities are endless!

I do have a collection of Sèvres porcelain, but this trophy would be too large for my caffè latte!

But you don't have tramadol for breakfast. ..

The trophy looks great for snacks to have on hand to throw at the circus on TV. :)

@cleans_letsrun

Replying to @cyclecollective

We could similarly create a list of things Team Sky *didn't* find:

1) Chris Froome's bilharzia
2) Quickest route to La Toussuire
3) Anything concerning on Geert Leinders' CV
4) MPCC registration form

The big question is what Comcast will do when someone is caught doing something they should n't.

The American man-on-the-street's first thing that comes to mind when you mention pro-cycling is probably still a "certain Texan".

Chin up chaps, we may be one-nil down but if we regroup we could still win this two-nil.

Doping or not, I'm sure that Sky/Comcast's internal metrics found that they had squeezed every last bit of value from the sponsorship. But, I don't discount at all that Froome's AAF made the decision to pull the plug very easy internally. How do you explain the UCI/WADA to to a board of directors?

How do you explain an insular, out-of-touch, corrupt, old boys club network facilita...

Yeah, I think you get the picture.
