When did this become common knowledge about UKAD receiving this tip off about the package ? Who would be privy to that sort of info ? Are there any retrospective tests that can be done on blood/urine for triamcinolone assuming the samples are still around ?


The whistleblower gave this information to Lawton who could not publish it for legal reasons - My guess is the whistleblower gave this information to UKAD - Of course UKAD has to prove it was triamcinoline - A difficult case for UKAD.

Divorce rates are at a record high in the UK by the way, I think it's something like 60 - 70% don't make it past a 10 year sentence, I mean the 10 year mark. :)



42% per the most recent figures, and trending down. Lowest rates since the 70s.

Very interesting reading about the Wigg's improvement timeline. Didn't realise it was so dramatic, always thought it was more gradual.


he was an ordinary prologue and tt rider for his first decade


Yeah I somehow had the impression he was making gradual progress. Probably unwittingly brainwashed by the cycling press in the UK, the sycophantic coverage at the time was never-ending.


may have won a l'avenir prologue when he was about 23, won a four days of dunkirk tt or some $hit small race in inimitable parlance of Cav. may have beaten saul raisin on a stage in l'avenir. could not peel skin off custard for his first decade in the pros since Linda Macartney tv dinners. and they probably ate meat.

Sad deflection.

Wiggins has peed and shat on nearly everyone so it is called revenge.

Wonder did Wiggins stiff Geraint some bonus money........

I had to restrain myself from buying this:

I still might (such a good deal!) because here in the US people still wear US Postal/Livestrong kits without shame, so I could probably get away with it... :D

Now there is a spiffy new special edition automobile to complement that good looking Rapha WIGGINS jersey.

Yep, getting the defence in early for the inevitable rest day presser when the jiffy questions get asked.

Wiggins talking about Indoor Rowing at Tokyo Olympics and a gold medal.

"I took up rowing when I retired just to keep fit, but my numbers started getting quite good, so I've started taking it up professionally now and getting coached seven days a week,"

"I'm going to see how far I can take it. Maybe a sixth Olympic gold?"


He obviously did not fall out with his doctors :D
