Yet NOTHING is said about it. Apart from her impressive TDY win, she is far from the explosive and dominate rider from last year before all the missed test stuff came out


Not really. She's climbing better than she ever has in her life and worse in the flatter races as a result.
Which makes sense as this is the only Giro route she'll have a chance to win so she's focusing on it.

Why would she stop doing what she's always done if it's never triggered a positive?

I expect to see her do well today then. She hasnt done anything thus far in the Tour and that's had some decent climbs in it? Surly is she is 'climbing better than she ever has' she would have shown something? She just looks way off at the moment.

I suppose if she is trying to peak for the Giro then she still has a couple of weeks. But last year she was at a peak for most of the season!

For those who may have seen this story a month ago - the 'exclusive' is actually explained in her book, funnily. The DM's 'source' must have got round to reading it...
