Why flame with me....?... I will make a post on what I think of the man. One post and thats it. A timeline:
Cadel started out in the AIS in 1995.
A number of young juniors around 2002 were were taught to have group injections in their public paid dormitories from ages 14-18. Doping became a social norm in this "institute of sport," how to dope and doping being acceptable and normal is very very important in the young teenager's development.
-2001; He moved onto European professional road racing to compete with the infamous Saeco which competed extremely well at the Giro when a mass police drug raid reveiled 02 carriers like HemAssit being used, and hundreds of syringes, vials, and other drug paraphernalia.
-He competed then on Johan Museeuw's favorite team Mapei Everybody's favorite manager Patrick Lefevere worked this team. Dopers Oscar Camenzind (EPO), Manuel Beltrán (Tour de EPO mule), Dr. Ferrari doper Axel Merckx, Johan Museeuw (Aranesp EPO) , Pavel Tonkov (Dr. Ferrari), Frank Vandenbroucke (clenbuterol, morphine and EPO), Patrik Sinkewitz (testosterone), Tony Rominger (Dr. Ferrari) all rode for this team.
2003-2004 Team telekom... Brief encounter with Dr. Ferrari? Not known for sure.
Erik Zabel (EPO) Oscar Sevilla (Dr. Fuentes), Jan Ullrich (Dr. Fuentes), Matthias Kessler (Friedburg), Andreas Klöden (friedburg) were some of his famously doped teamates of the team in pink. Walter Godefroot taught Cadel a few of the "tricks?"
2006- onwards. Chris Horner's heavily doped assistance, finsihes 8th..Due to Dr. Ferrari improvement? Loses time when Roid Landis attacks (possibly after blood refill and 02 carrier infusions?)
2007 loses time on Contradoper but still manages 2nd due to Chicken man Rasmussen having difficulties maintaining credibility.(bovine hemoglobin, biopure, frozen packed red cells, then Dynepo after running out of frozen packed cells)....
2008... No blood doping or only minimal dope...Nobody quite has the bio passport figured out yet... Sastre blood dopes for final TT and hold Evans off dramatically.
2009. Evans "average" to intermediate level TDF team rider Dekker goes positive for EPO after leaving his expert doping doctor Chechini back in 2007. The amount of epo required to dope with would have made him test postive 100 times or more so the only logical conclusion is that he was blood doping.
The empirical evidence appears to suggest 100% of Evan's teamates on every pro team he was ever on were doped (or very close to 100%).
Science shows full endurance trauma therapy doping gives a 20-30% power increase. I find it hard to believe Evans overcame a 30% deficit on other talented riders for the last 15 years. I do not hate Evans for doping.
