Lopez is something different. I am almost certain it doesn't have to do with doping. You simply do not drop off performance like that. Could be crashes, covid, lack of racing, etc.Yeah, indeed. Since the argument "Colombians do not stand a chance in the blood doping era since they profit less with their high hematocrit" was frequently used - do we take something away from that? I guess not.
But Lopez looks really bad (and I mean Quintana too but thats not new) - how does this fit with his enormous Ventoux performance not long ago?
