And Walsh is just great at repeating his mistakes

He was embedded with Sky for weeks while researching his (shockingly bad) Inside Team Sky book and seems to have adopted a bizarre "pro cycling team wouldn't lie to the famous David Walsh about doping" approach to figuring out what might really be going on. Only recently has he admitted that Brailsfraud and Wiggo pulled the wool over his eyes

But at that point he kept the faith with Froome. Because he'd ghosted the Dawg's (shockingly bad) autobiography and retained the clearly broken not fit for purpose in the first place "pro cyclist wouldn't lie to the famous David Walsh about doping" approach to figuring out what might really be going on

Fool him once, shame on Brailsfraud and Wiggo. Fool him twice, shame on Walshy!


I’ll grant Walsh the courtesy of not believing anyone fooled him.

Indeed, he knew exactly what he was doing. He wasn't swallowing the PR, he was the PR

"That means that if there was some wrongdoing at the Vuelta last year, it was a one-off."

Wait, what? How does that make sense in any way? Unique and mentally tough athletes are physically incapable of doping themselves to the eyeballs?

Walsh has even confused his own logic. Looks like some of Dawg’s Giro appearance fee has hit the wallet of Walsh :cool:

These last 2 stages hurt me. In every respect.

This fits nicely in the bot logic thread as well. I mean, Walsh is practically a bot.

Well, that is odd. The supreme athletic abilities and mental toughness only appeared in 2011, and the memories of Nairobian roads only came back this year...or possibly last year when Froome showed an improvement in bike handling skills and descents.

Obviously there was that brief moment 2 weeks ago where a sharp Right hand uphill bend took Froome's mind off Kenya, and he fell off.

Walsh is a bigger see you next Tuesday than Brailsford and Froome.

Don't be so harsh on poor Walsh, relapses are common when quitting hard drugs.

Exactly, just wait for the cobbles at this years Tour, it will remind Froome of the paved stones of “insert African town name with rough paved stones” :cool:

Cobbled streets do exist in Nairobi, the proof is plain to see
I wonder if a certain cynicism has set in such that Clinicians are reluctant to give Walsh the benefit of the doubt

If you’re going to risk your journalistic integrity on a rider by claiming you believe he is clean and if you’re going to make a point about getting your facts straight – you’d better get your facts straight.


Walsh is not interested in facts.

He attacked on l'Alpe d'Huez and then proceeded to ride it more than 10 minutes slower than he did in 2013. Important to note that he also bonked in epic fashion in 2013 because Team Marginal Gains forgot to feed their captain and he probably lost at least a minute as a consequence of that.

But I'm sure pro cyclists find 10 minute gains on 40 minute climbs all the time. Totally normal development..

I actually doubt Walsh's mental condition. Hating on Lance was personal. Then defending a paedophile and now the whole Sky thing. Not the logic of a sane person.

I would have to agree. I don’t think he is a sane person and has very peculiar and creepy in his older age. Walsh is one to stay away from.
