Wearing the yellow jersey usually gives you additional power.

He said that the TDF suits him better and it would obviously also depend on who else is in the race. Nibali has said he might ride the Giro (and vuelta) next year, maybe some dangerous Colombians too.

especially when peaking all the year round, marginal SkyBorg style - now, in the Oleg's prepaid year (only to be ruined by marginal loss of one-handed Dirtie's descent)

He has had extraordinary performances this year, most of them very close to one another and on very, very hard stages. This has been the most impressive breakout that I can remember in recent history...

But he has long been considered an extraordinary talent, so in a way it was not a surprise. But the magnitude of it all certainly struck me. In that sense I must admit his performances "raised an eyebrow" with me. But as with any rider, I hope he is riding clean.

Though I must say I did not like the way he rode in the Tour, maybe it was just a fluke, but he seemed very egotistical and with that style he will not make many friends in the peloton

All that body movement in the TT. Awful.

tinkof-saxo team super juiced this entire season. the difference with last year is stupendous -- coinciding with tinkov taking over and no doubt adding that all important "motivation".

fact: tinkov encourages doping on his teams.
fact: tinkov goes to court to defend blood dopers.
fact: tinkov consistently hires unrepentant dopers.

fact: riis doped to get all the results that made him famous.
fact: riis is being investigated for systematic doping of his teams.
fact: many of the riders have tested positive or have been connected to doping, doping teams and doping doctors.

conclusion: the entire tinkov-saxo organization is terrible for cycling and should be thrown out of the sport.

To be fair, it wasn't a very strong field TTer wise.

He should do La Vuelta, he could win it.

And with his "natural progression" and "great recovery" next year the Giro-Tour, he will walk them.

Amazing recovery

09 Aug 2014 18:59

I am baffled that Majka won the Polish race after TDF? he wasn't sitting at the back at the TDF, he won a couple. And now this? I am a fan but when I see recovery like this I think, "something does not add up". I will not rule out the Vuelta except his ITT is bad. He will probably contend and win a couple which is also baffling.

Not sure, strangely three of top four at Poland where also in top 4 last year, Riblon had a good back end of TDP last year and came close to winning

Well said, Absolutely agree. Some of the many Tinkoff/Saxo/CSC/Tiscali/Memory Card riders with relation to doping and doping investigations:

Ivan Basso, Jörg Jaksche, Tyler Hamilton, Fränk Schleck, Bobby Julich, Alberto Contador, Roman Kreuziger, Bo Hamburger, Jesper Skibby, Nicolai Bo Larsen, Marc Streel, Lars Michaelsen, Laurent Jalabert, Rolf Sørensen, Andrea Peron, Stuart O'Grady.

No, I guess not, but I would like to see Riis get kicked out of the sport.

fact: cycling is completely dirty and if you throw out Riis and Tinkoff, there are a whole lot of other names that should go.
