I’ve never once said he demonstrated any kind of potential to be the best pre 2011. Have I?gillan1969 said:Brownbobby...."born to the be the best"? One, just one, performance pre-Vuelta 2011 where this gift from birth made itself evident? just one?
As I said earlier, there are countless reasons why potential can stay hidden.
My point, which I stand by, is that he is now the best, thus had the genetics to be the best.
What I/we don’t know is what happened to suddenly switch on those genetics. Maybe it was a genetic predisposition to be a super responder to doping, if that fits with your narrative neatly?
It’s still genetics.
