Good to see but have the French guys had enough and decided to get on the program?

Don't be silly. Everybody knows that the French don't dope.

please point to any supernatural perf by a french rider or STFU.

oh, right, you can only be "cool" in the clinic if you are persuaded that EVERYONE dopes.

random..........................riders one does not care for

again cheating is neither french british or reserved by any other nationality

watching todays tour stage 'bossed' by nibali I did think that the overall flow of riding on the final climb was more like pre oxygon vectoring days

Spoken like someone who doesn't know a lot about cycling.

Bardet and Pinot as random French guys. Lol.

I thought french guys had never heard of marginal gains. Seems odd that they can drop everyone from sky and garmin that easily.
MC: I don’t think Chris fully understood that (Vinokourov) had doped.

CF: No, I knew.

MC: Not fully.

You say that as if they were dropping an in-form Porte or if Talansky was still here in top shape.

Nope! Just a little casting for the leading role in the Brailsfraud's reality show "France's got talent" (in other words, looking for NCEFTW - New Clean Era French Tour Winner)

Yes looks like they're all on the catwalk for Dave.

Pinot has always been a personal favourite. I really hope he makes the podium. I tipped him last year until Sky decided to create warp speed cycling again.

When they start beating Tony Martin in a time trial, then I'll get angry but until then, it's nice to see the French have someone else to cheer on besides Tommy V. throwing himself all over his bike.

I think more of you need to read Antoine Vayer's 'Not Normal'

In that he clearly outlines that French people are better than other people.

Another thread where baseless accusations are thrown around.

How cool.

What Guy Random is doping? The Randoms are a great French cycling family and Guy was always one of my favorites. Such a shame.

Seems like logical progression for both Bardet and Pinot to me.

I agree. Bardet is a show. 23 years old. Pinot I think is the more likely to go on & win the Tour one day. I just hope it's with a French team.

Sky would ruin him.

if no one raises an eyebrow after today's stage, we should probably move this thread out of clinic section.
Cycling is interesting only because the line between the improbable and the attainable is not clear.
