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.


it was ferkin Rupert

even since Wendi started writing love notes to Tony and talking about his buttocks, Rupert started to feel cuckolded for the first time in his life

and he would have none of it.

so he turned to the chick out of Batman

:D Yeah, I wondered about that, too.

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:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3554028/figure/i1062-6050-48-1-124-f01/


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.


That's why you need a swimming coach.


Does the algorithm work on Nutella? :rolleyes:

\yea, then Wiggins becomes Wigans became Twiggins became Twiggo,

and was using the enema nutrition intestine absorption liquid diet.

that my friend, is marginal gains, on a colon sized margin. anal liquid diet. no Nutella, merely scatology


when the Belgians and Flemish just had pot and pot belge and belge pot and caffeine suppositories, Brailsford and sky, saw their potbelge suppositories, raised them, showed an anal liquid diet. They bypassed the gut and upper intestine altogether. some pure marginal gains. genius by Brailsford.

Implicit tagline of Sky team, should be made the explicit tagline. Put it on a bumper sticker. Put it on the official Sky branded enema bag.

Is this the first time ever Admiral Lord Nelson has featured in a forum discussion on doping?

I don't know, he seems to be a suitably muscular christianity type, and the UCI's approach to doping strikingky resembles Nelson's approach to orders.

:D

on a more serious note, whatever algorithm they were using in 2010, it did little to prevent the fatal events at the Vuelta that year. I don't think we've ever seen any other team in the history of cycling screw things up so tremendously on the medical front. Not even PDM.

Was good to see UKAD on top of that case spearheading the investigation into what the **** happened there. :rolleyes:

In the case of PDM 1991, it took about 6 years before that episode came under renewed scrutiny. As it happens, that retrospective scrutiny was triggered by the busting of a Dutch doping ring involving ex-pdm doc Wim Sanders. Sanders, very much a Dutch Boner kind of guy.
In 1995 the FIOD (Fiscal Inquiry and Tracing Service) traced Wim Sanders for tax-dodging of dfl 100,000 and discovered the illegal doping circuit. It appeared that not only cyclists but also bodybuilders, ice-hockey players and track-and-field athletes were involved in this doping and black money circuit.

This one will be awesome! Hang on?! Wasn’t this guy too sick to speak to parliament?!! :cool:

The former Team Sky doctor at the centre of the Jiffy-bag scandal has been criticised by Parliament for ­announcing a book deal that appears to cash in on the affair.

Richard Freeman’s publishers revealed this week details of the “extraordinary” book called The Line: Where Medicine and Sport Collide.

How is his medical hearing gone on? I presume he said that the contents of the jiffy bag were definitely Vicks cough medicine that was needed urgently - no wait - not quite so urgently - well yes urgently so we need it flown out but doon't rush about it. And certainly not cross-his-heart-hope-to-die something that professional cyclists from the 1990's on the same team together, would use for doping one of their young proteges to a big race win, with a courier on a several thousand mile trip for one of his mates, fiddling his expenses and not doing his day job paid from public money.

So are we to speculate that the medical council have brought the full weight of their disciplinary procedures to the issue and has Freeman has been let off with a "If you get your lap top stolen by them nasty Greek thieves and don't keep records - and appear in front of us again - then we will have to do something more serious that tell you not to do it again".

So now, having dodged around parliament and everything else, with people cutting him a bit of slack because no-one wanted him to do something drastic, instead he has hidden low and cut a book deal. Is the book sponsored by Team Sky and edited by Brailsford ?

Now if anyone were to attempt to write any of this soap saga into a book the publishers would reject it as waaaayyy tooooo fanciful

I'm not sure the book is going to reveal much. The publisher doesn't even make the jiffy bag story the main focus of the book. I would imagine it will be mostly in-line with his 3 statements to Parliament that the majority of the public will not know anything about or have read anyway and so will help sell the book.

Dr Freeman will explain the importance of an holistic approach in the book: from the psychology of the rider to the importance of athlete welfare; the prevention and treatment of injuries to the importance of proper recovery, including practical tips for amateur riders. He will also give a "frank and open" account in response to allegations of misuse of medical treatment to enhance performance.

Depends if the dr feels he was thrown under the bus by Sky, it may be uncomfortable for Sky at best.

I doubt it. I can't see any logical reason why he would want to say anything different to what he's told parliamentary committee in a book. He either felt he was thrown under a bus at the time, in which case he lied to parliament, or he doesn't and a few £thousand he might earn from the book about holistic medication in sport isn't worth the repercussion and financial requirements legally if you ask me. I could be wrong, Holistic medication in sport might be next years best-selling book, but it sounds unlikely!

This pretty much confirms it btw:

The name for the book was borne out of Dr Freeman's philosophy that "patients and their coaches are given the best medical advice to ensure that they are able to reach their own inherent best performance without ever crossing the medical or sporting ethical line ... It’s never about winning at all costs".

A TUE and a supply of Corticosteroids is hardly winning at all costs. Every team doctor will have applied for a TUE at some point to keep a rider in the race or able to start a race and every team doctor will have a stock of corticosteroids because they are legal anyway so long as not in-competition without a TUE.
