We already have enough Sky/Froome/BC books threads.

I moved the previous three posts from a new thread about Froome books.

I don't come to the clinic often, but this thread has the potential to become as classic as the Pelotoon one. A great Post in a great thread. Hitch was so on the money making this thread.

He obviously doesn't need the cash, but when Tony Purnell
eventually writes a book I hope he includes a few chapters
about his time with British Cycling and hopefully he'll share
some insights into Rio '16 and maybe Tokyo '20 Olympic
successes.

Loving that picture too. A bit disappointed there is no "platinum" table with Walsh as the main attraction.

Am I the only one thinking of starting a crowd funded project to get the Clinic 12 a Gold Table? :D

when I saw this in here first I thought it was a wind up - a funny one - what kind of loser wants to sit down with these muppets and drink wine...new to cycling - froome and sky are brilliant - millar will tell all about how sky are brilliant, cycling is different these days.
Millar plays the game - brailsford loves the limelight
Over 3 grand for a table - give the money directly to charity. But sitting down with these guys drinking wine you're nothing but a fat MAMIL who wants a story for the weekend.

Thousand pounds to look at Dan Martin while you're eating. Totally worth the money.

Now I might well contribute to that fund…but only if I get to go along as a observer…I might even offer my services as a honeytrap… :eek:

May I just say this

I would open a crowdfunding account and buy all Gold tables to make sure I would have the table with Alberto :cool: and then all the other "cycling legends" could share the other tables, maybe I would invite some Clinic regulars to keep them busy :rolleyes:

Two years ago I didn't imagine they'd execute this fraud for so long and really just monetizing it like Wiesel and Armstrong never imagined. We're in peak honeymoon period right now. There is no telling how long this will last. And then it's going to come crashing down. Again.

I'm not going to go to the trouble, but it would be fun to count the number of books about USPS prior to the fraud reaching a worldwide audience and the number of Sky-related books.

For a mere £30 you can attend this 'appetiser' the day before.
https://bloodwise.org.uk/event-challenges/go-event/south-east/audience-sir-dave-brailsford?

Not only will you be allowed to put questions to Sir Dave, you can listen to Tony Bliar's Spin Doctor, Alistair Campbell who's not averse to telling the odd 'porky' himself (see Iraq 'dodgy dossier' for details). Birds of a feather and all that. But 'it's all for charity' so that's OK.

Dave Brailsford is a genius. A man full of great wisdom. His quote on Geriant Thomas's book is inspirational and insightful. Sir Dave certainly knows how to make you want to go out and buy this book :rolleyes:

Chris Hoy seems pretty intelligent so I guess Walsh wasn't involved.

I've spend far too much of my life thinking about (and chasing) black boxes.

This is one book I won't be reading.
