It was so dry and dusty it just looked like that.

What was even more bizzare was Armstrong on his podcast couldn't make sense that someone would lift their bike up when they put the chain on and spin the cranks. He was baffled. :rolleyes:


I thought that was lame on LA's part -- he clearly knows it wasn't a motor but was just trying to stir sh** up

LA should stick to race tactics on his podcast and avoid discussing anything to do with doping, pharmacological or otherwise. His credibility is permanently compromised.

He kinda acknowledged his error in yesterday's podcast though... So it seems he really couldn't explain it initially.
Shut up, Jens!

Even a team-mate's wheel won't go on Froome's bike - which of them has the wheel motor? Video.

No Sky team wheel for Froome - took his chances with Mavic neutral. At least this time it wasn't a bike requested.

This video makes it pretty clear what occurred.

Thank goodness the UCI have looked closely at the issue of tech fraud and finally put it to rest:

Lots of increased trust in the cleanness of cycling promoted by the UCI and WADA this year. It's all about transparency, figuratively and literally. :D

Cant remember any attacks at 2000+ RPM, I wondered why he was quiet. Not tired from the Giro at all. Just a tip off ;) :cool:

don't think anyone stated that the issue had finally been put to rest?

164 bikes x rayed at tour and nothing found

millions watching on TV and at roadside etc nothing positive seen.....?

if indeed motors were used at this tour who were using them and what is the evidence

for thinking so?

Lappartient has figured out that in this race they were not being used. I don't believe he ever thought that at this level they were. In those circumstances what else can he say?

I can't figure out why on this forum many are willing to give him a free pass. He screwed up about the Froome inhaler case just before the Tour and may have been implicated earlier in the leak. He stirred up public opinion and nearly caused a crisis. Now he's spent a fortune on Xray equipment that would find motors if there were any but the usual brigade are not impressed, so what was the point?

maybe the guy/girl filming could have picked them wheels up, they just got tossed away, first rule of hidden motors don't chuck the motors away

What? No comment on Barguil ditching his whole bike (keeping just his front wheel and gps), then washing out on the right hand turn at the top of the climb?

If Barguil had won the race by 2 minutes I'm sure he'd be getting a lot more attention.

Tafi.

If Tafi wanting to ride Paris Roubaix as a competitor at 52 doesn't tell you motors are commonplace then nothing will!

I guess I'll have to take nothing. Oh, hang on a moment, the moon's just come out, wow, that's it, that's proof that motors are commonplace. I'm a believer!

Absolutely. And if me wanting to win the Black Reels best actor award despite not being black or an actor tells you nothing about racism in Hollywood then nothing will.
