Google would tell you. It's a fault in something that could not have been discovered by a reasonably thorough inspection - a hidden or partially hidden defect - one that cannot be easily discovered.

From what I gather, this isn't a full on Sky related book.

That being said I wouldn't read the book whatsoever.

relationship between kath and cound is one I would describe as manifesting latent defect, or, manifesting a latent defect. Can someone please help me with my grammar and syntax.

latent defect, or counterfeiting Hermes Berkin handbags at ten paces.

Its an undercard to the Jerone Blijlevens v Bobby Julich match-up.

Dana White is busy in the gym power-lifting and cross-fitting[sic] for when he gets in between the fighters before the bout to separate the unadulterated pituitary excretion of testosterone

And they praise themselves with 'discovering latent defects' and 'cutting down on infections'?

Woeful idiots, should be locked up in jail.

I suppose you might think that if it had been a criminal offence, back in the days, it would have justified transportation to Australia.

Syed is full-on pro athlete/ con testing. Wrote a column in The Times the day after Sharapova, essentially saying she was within the rules, so cool, and who are WADA to move the goalposts.

If the Sky recipe is 'new drug so not banned' he is your perfect cheerleader.

If an athlete is seeking to improve her diet by means of
nutritional supplements, for instance, here is an example
of an algorithm she could use, my learned friends:

If they get caught down the liner they will have made such a killing from this anyway that it will have financially been totally worth it doping. Its not like you pay back the money you made from selling BS books to brainless morons).

I'm making this thread because I just heard the hillarious news that Wiggins is releasing ANOTHER book .

So we have

Froome autobiography.
Geraint Thomas autobiography (upcoming)
Dave Brailsford autobiography (upcoming)
Bradley Wiggins autobiography 1
Bradley Wiggins autobiography 2
Bradley Wiggins autobiography 3 (upcoming)
Inside Team Sky.
Dave Brailsford mastermind.
Dave Millar autobiograhy 1 (yes I know he's not IN sky atm but he's their number 1 cheerleader and close to all of them + close to BC)
Dave Millar autobiography 2 (upcoming)
Ellingworth autobiography (wtf even the 2nd tier coach of the team has 1)
Cav autobiography.

What else is there?

I think I remember at least 2 or 3 more ive seen. there was one about how sky conquered the world or some **** like that. Also one from ned boulting (saying ITV aren't part of Sky is like saying that the CIA isn't part of the US government).

What other ones have I forgotten.

How does compare to other champions in the past - Armstrong (he had about 3 or 4 iirc + Brunyeel) or Indurain, Contador, Merckx etc.

Seems to me to be a massive part of the Sky racket.

On a similar note what about documentaries, which is same principle.
So far I remember a Wiggins one by Sky, a Wiggins one by ITV, (also a Wiggins one by ES?). A Froome one by ITV and maybe a Cav one by ITV too.




Not sure what your point is?

Okay, that's an official algorithm, so? It basically describes the logic to be used for recommending dietary supplements. Still doesn't explain how a "new" algorithm (new logic?) might enable one to improve diet.

No, that's why I need an anti-aging doctor. In my day pro cyclists went to gynecologists. Nowadays it's all about anti-aging docs. And new algorithms.

I imagine Grandpa Chris Horner turned the peloton onto these in 2013. Looks like he needs to return to one today, to fight the dreaded lupus.

the anti-age doc trended already in the early 2000s, if not earlier.
