Whatever PEDs are in vogue right now includes something that causes weight loss and no decline in power. It's been this way for years.


Nutritional ketosis has a protein-sparing effect and burns fats. No need for PEDs.


How effective is a ketosis based diet for supporting high intensity interval training?

Mikel Landa never showed the same spark at Sky compared to when he was at Astana. Not sure if this is clinic related but it is noteworthy.

Not too sure about that. While his Giro was certainly very good and arguable his best showing so far, the second Sky season was with no doubt better than his Astana seasons on overall terms.

Wildly inconsistent at Astana, wildly inconsistent at Sky. But his highs feature a similar peak level in both teams, I'd say.

two falls, tough circuit and against some of the best climbers and only Roglic dig did something to his gap, look at the likes of Alaphilippe,Doumulin and company who actually lost time on him on last two tough circuits if you take of 20 seconds from the falls.
This screams old Vinokourov, but its nothing special compared to some of the Astana performances of past few years, no proof of course but I am not going to watch any cycling for a while. Seen enough not to believe this wasn't on juice

Most moronic idea that the fall had to do with a motor, first fall he misjudged his speed going into the corner, second fall he started pushing down on the pedals to early.

Also Fuglsang wasn't doing too bad, no trouble staying with the leaders.

I never laughed so much since the Giro days of Mikel and Fabio.

Oh, Jakob and Alexey, you’re hilarious.

Pffff give me a break.

This is nowhere near Fabio and Mikel? Both Fuglsang and Lutsenko have marginaly improved if anything since last year.
Fuglsang was lucky with his attack, he would never be able to follow Yates if he waited until the final, Lutsenko finished over 3 minutes down today?

It's not anymore suspicious then last year, nothing has changed other then they have been lucky with the timing of the attacks. To act like this is something entierly new is sensationalism

Pretty much. Lutsenko has obviously lost some weight since last year though and kept most of the power = a somewhat better version of himself. Birdsong is just doing what he's been doing in Astana over last few years, that is being a very very strong 1-week stage racer who's now having the luck with him rather than against him for once.
