SDB learned a while back that his schtick no longer works. Wonder if he's getting many bookings for his public speaking...

Time was he would be all over this type of story like a rash. Trying to set the media agenda via a soft interview on Sky News. Giving the fanboys nuggets of waffle to pin an argument on

So is he hanging the Dawg out to dry, as Walsh has suggested? Or is he just very very confident this problem will go away, like all the others?


I just think he's learnt over the past 12 months to keep his mouth shut unless he's absolutely forced into saying something.

If he hasn't, then he definetely should have

Suspect you're right

Brailsfraud's ego must have taken a battering when the first piece of advice from the expensive PR guy hired by Sky to smooth over the jiffybag mess was...STFU!

And the second piece of advice was...No really, STFU! :D

Oh yeah, and they worked even better with their bikes with hidden bolts.

I think he still believes he can bully and force his way through his one. Sans Cookson it might not happen but SDB will push hard and try.

I'm not sure. There are a few indications that he's eyeing up the underside of the bus as somewhere to throw Froome.

When it first blew up, he didn't refer to Team Sky, but loaded all responsibility on "Chris". Also, I've heard that Team Sky are not paying Froome's legal fees.

Remember that time last year when Froome stayed silent and didn't endorse Brailsford up until the last minute...

Agreed. But in the back of Brailsford mind is “I can contain the Dawg but I can’t contain the Michelle”.

'At the end of his press conference, Lappartient was asked if he believed that Dave Brailsford was an ethically good representative for clean cycling. Again, the Frenchman provided a long pause, before answering: "Dave Brailsford has said they [Team Sky] don't need to be in the MPCC, because they are doing more. I hope so." '

"For me, there’s no question, he’s done nothing wrong – no question, no question, no question,” Brailsford said, in front of a huddle of Colombian broadcast microphones."

"The two situations are quite different. With Sergio, we did some testing where he came back to Colombia, but the situation with Chris is... he’s not been charged with anything at the minute, he’s just been asked to provide information."
Heano was charged?

In 2016 he was when a ABP case was opened. But in 2014 he wasn't, but I'd argue he wasn't really suspended by Sky either, just sent off to do a couple of months of testing in Colombia. Once that was over he was straight back to racing, with no waiting for the UCI to give the all clear.

"That’s why I think, at the minute, the approach we’ve taken is to support him and make sure we do what we can to have a fair process, even though I do understand it’s a very difficult situation for everyone"

Note SDB's *** covering "at the minute"

He's getting ready to throw the Dawg under the bus!
