I am wondering why this is in The Clinic,unless putting on weight after a bad crash, is a new way of doping.

The original article from Herald Sun (which feltet.dk is quoting) states that he went from 59 to 68 (-ish) kgs - not 78, as was stated in the feltet.dk article. That makes it somewhat more believeable, I guess.

"Porte put on more than 10kg inside a month, but makes no apologies in the belief it’s not just the legs that benefit from a break.

“I got out to 68kg, probably even more to be honest. I left the Tour at just under 59kg,” he said.

Going from five hours on the bike per day to laying in hospital usually puts on weight. And he was probably doping in hospital on painkillers................

Why? Simple. Porte isn't one of the Clinic favourites.

Sure
if he has put weight on
the clinic label LRP

After the acceleration he did yesterday, I just have to ask:

Does Porte have asthma?

He looks even skinnier than last year with an extra 20w built in.

He's a successful endurance athlete, of course he has asthma.

New team members at Team Sky are injected with asthma via a syringe with no needle. A side effect of the asthma treatment causes weight loss while power is maintained. Those riders who are unfortunate enough to breathe freely cannot compete with these maximal gains.
