An Di Gregorio was at Astana in 2011 so I guess they didn't meet there. I never understood why Di Gregorio went to Astana, a promising climber, dubbed the "new Virenque", never did much and now this...

I wondered that, too. I always thought he was destined to remain in the FdJ land of fruitless breakaways.

Seems spot on to me :D

So far the only reaction from a tour rider. Not saying much though.

It's all so quiet ... They must've had a busy REST DAY.
That is not Chris Horner's twitter account

There is no way that Di Gregorio doped. He's never tested positive after over 500 doping tests. The French just have an agenda against him.

I am somewhat surpised that it's Cofidis. From my personal perception of the dirtyness of French teams racing the Tour they'd be somewhere in the bottom half.
Yep, and doped to the gills.

It's a cleanish team. Instead of being doped to the eyeballs, they're doped to their chinny chin chins. That extra five inches makes all the difference.

any rider that has gills has an unfair advantage in wet races and should be prohibited from competing.


it's not about Cofidis being dirty or clean. it's about 1 rider whose getting pinched due to activities they conducted on a different team

Unfair advantage, and the ability to kick *ss under the tutelage of a swimming coach...

This is Robbie Hatch on twitter who is commentating for Eurosport at the moment at the Tour de Pologne.

This is his response to a tweet by Joan Horrach where he does'nt seem to be happy with what he has said. Can someone translate it for me? Thanks.

I'll give a quick amateur attempt:

Jrack‏@JoanHorrach
Q se vayan ya a la mierda con tanta persecucion, controles y gilipolleces con el ciclismo! A LA MIERDA! Dejadnos trabajar y hacer ciclismo!

They can go to hell with all the persecution, controls and stupidities in cycling! TO HELL!
Just let us work and ride!


I'm sure that translation can be improved upon but you get the gist of it.

Exactly. With the kind of emotional statements about Cofidis, you would think that Lance signed with them or something.

:rolleyes:

I mean, like after he did EPO with Steve Swart on the Motorola squad.

Swart recalls a rest-day during the '95 Tour when the Motorola riders tested their hematocrit levels. Swart was at 48. "Lance was 54 or 56," Swart recalls

Nah, what am I thinking. Cofidis would never hire a known doper.

Dave.

Yeah, because the same management were involved :rolleyes: That's like equating T-mobile with HTC.

If you replace "stupidities" with "bull****", it's spot on.

That's what Horrach is saying: Di Gregorio being arrested is BS. Just let him ride. All those doping tests? BS. Stop with them already.

I'm not making this up.

Thanks very much for that - far more idiomatic now.:)

With regards to Horrach - he is not a cyclist well known to me but he is clearly utterly shameless.

Sounds like he was waiting eagerly for Di Gregorio to come back from Marseille with the supplies. Katusha must be proud of him.

Ah so Horrach is a rider ? Must admit that I'd never heard of him but it sounds like he might be making the headlines soon...

If the biological passport has a large margin of error then how can the list be credible? If the list was any good, those with the highest numbers should have the highest probability of being caught.
