3 wins in a row. thank god Sky is not doing that. the servers wouldnt cope with that :D
If Astana are going to go down in flames, then sit back and enjoy the show. :D
I dont even want them to go down. I wouldnt enjoy. I am not wishing stuff like that to any team.
that´s why I am baffled when people wish teams to go down in flames.

I think Astana has serious money problems and it's most probable they will discontinue next year. There's a very high probability of them going down no matter what. I don't think anyone here is wishing any team to go down. It seems Vino still has some leftovers in his basement as Astana boys are giving QuickStep run for their money. Lulu Sanchez just snatched a nice win in Trentino/Tirol/Alps/whatever.

I find it disturbing that you call this man chubby. You clearly have a warped perception of the human form if you think arms are supposed to get any skinnier than that. Tejay, Froome, Zakarin etc. are the freaks who should be shamed. Who looks more like the pre-epo cycling greats (Lemond, Hinault, Merckx) --- Lutsenko or Poels?
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.

Cadel Evans said exactly this I think in 2012 or 2013. What happened in 2012? It seems to me that other teams have caught up in the arms race.

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.
