let me say that, about Paris-Nice.

If Yates was fighting for the win, I would have gladly cheered for him, or even Gallopin

let's imagine Thomas around 4th - 5th in GC, good perf as usual.

I would have genuinely cheered for the Orica guys without strings attached without hate/love reason

but just the fact Thomas and Sky have everybody against them, I cant help but cheer for them. this cheering could be defined "not genuine" "not true". fair to say that.
I will not remember Geraint Thomas 2016 Paris-Nice in a few years, as I wont with Poels' Volta Valenciana

me rooting for Sky is something strange. twitter and the clinic made me so. I cheer for spite
from people blaming Apollonio in 2015, to people tweeting a pic of dollars to Nieve when he re-upped with Sky and many other examples. I would never EVER behave like that even if I dislike a rider.

when the race is over I tell myself: "Fausto, you gone mad, you have always cheered for the less strong, the rider struggling, the one who comes second, the attacker".

I always cheered for riders with weird luck like Durand, Chiappucci, Vansummeren,Virenque, D.Martin, the Schlecks and co (apart from Miguel Indurian)
I always rooted for Garmin! hahaah! oh the disappointment in these years!

now I find me cheering for the strongest team.

:D

I challenge any Sky hater to think about their hate just how I am reasoning with my cheering.

The big 3 tours were originally organised to sell more newspapers. It worked. I love to follow cycling, doping-warts and all, because fiction just can't make this kind of stuff up. It wouldn't be the same anymore if alien space bats took the doping away. I hope it stays dirty until I get very talented offspring.

I am guilty, well, very far potentially :p

If I had a "doping leak" , some kind of info about someone, or about some wrong doings, even about an athlete I dont like at all, I would not write to Vayer´s and his merry crew new website, Sportleaks.

I know, I´m bad.

I thinkk this is the right thread to discuss Peraud?

Was he innocent, as he claims, in 1997 with a hematocrit over 50?
Has he published what his hematocrit was in any of the yyears since 1997?
That is, can he prove his normal/ clean is near that level?

I found this quote of peraud:

“I was regularly between 48 and 50 percent when resting. And since I’ve adapted my body to training and road race competitions, I’ve come down to around 45-47 percent,” he explained.

That still doesn't say how much over 50 he was, nor why it would be 52 instead of 47.

@Shame Peraud doped like the rest of the french MTB team back in the late 90s early 2000s. I recommend you looking up Peter Pouly. It's the famous french team with Absalon, Chiotti,Peraud, Pouly...
When it comes to HCT i recommend you reading this https://www.53x12.com/hematocrit-in-athletes
Vayer supports Pouly and Peraud because he coached them and thinks they're now clean. It is true that if indeed their lab results are correct their performances would be in what Sassi called the upper end of human physiology (Peraud VO2max of 86, Pouly 88) They definitely are gifted but we know that doping has long lasting effects on physiology so maybe those values aren't natural but the residual effects of years of doping.

@pastronef I get what you're saying. Leaking something on an athlete would only result in another doper getting the win... In regards to team choices supporting Bahrain is ridiculous, on the one hand I get why Italians would, it's basically an Italian team minus the bike and groupset... the rest unless you're a die hard fan of Dr.Ferrari's clients I don't see why... This is what cycling has to do to survive but prostituting themselves to the highest bidder is not something that should happen. Model needs to change to get rid of all that filth and yes SKY is included ;)

anti-brit bias aside. is "the most incredible donkey to racehorse" stuff, about Froome, somehow related to the how the people perceive what should be fair or not?
is that thing choking in the followers throats every time they see Froome, because it is not allowed?
because ok gimme Boonen or Alberto and I will close eyes and ears and WANT to support them, while seeing Froome do the same it touches the "truth" alarm and also involves Alberto and Boonen and Nibali and all the others cause they dope too?
is Froome madness also ringing a bell for everyone? and that means people really understand they support dopers too, while before they pretended they didnt see? they pretended it was normal, it was the old euro doping tradition?
are we seeing the pesky brits doing what they werent supposed to do, go berzerk, win the Tours, and shake the old status quo where the old nations did the same but it was always so and it was fine?

It was not the same - the transformation was unique to Froome

Lance was the evidence that a guy with medium quality could win big. Froome the evidence that a guy with no talent could win big.

2) Professional sports are about money, not sport. They are a simulacrum of sport, one in which their starring figures make a Faustian bargain in exchange for fame, fake glory, and, in exceptional cases, real riches.

3) In a system that is corrupt through and through, such as professional sports, fame can turn to infamy in a flash. The true stars of pro sports are not the players but the big money behind the scenes, and they won't tolerate anyone, or anything, who threatens their interests.

4) The only hope for reforming pro sport into something healthy and wholesome is a strong players union controlled by the players, combined with open discussion among enlightened fans who demand better than they are getting.

5) Lance Armstrong is a reprehensible character, but he is as much a victim as a perpetrator and a straw man where corruption in cycle sport is concerned. The sport is as corrupt now as it was in his heyday.

6) Today's cycling stars - Froome, Wiggins, Horner, et al. - and their teams, are as fake as Fox News. Vaughters and his team are no exception, far from it.

7) I too despise Bruce Springsteen.


....actually Brucie is/can be ok.....some of the fans not so much.....similar problem to the Dead crowd...
