I don't think you will be able to convince a hater to change his preprogrammed opinions but nice try.
Dear Wiggo said:Nope, don't have to try at all to counter your claims. Candy from a baby in fact.
Bayern-Rundfahrt is a race. He won it. That you can't accept it's a race is immaterial to the cold, hard, fact that it is in fact a race, and that he won it.
They are certainly at the forefront of not testing positive.
So I have to guess your definition of race is anything that isn't GC-related, but when it comes to my argument, you lump in a whole "Dear Wiggo is saying TS are immune from suspicion" based on evidence of Rogers having twice as many CQ points with Sky as he does with Tinkov?
Goodness. The irony is delicious.
Here, for your edification is how I feel: the top 5 teams on CQ are pretty much doping as well as each other this year and most of last.
They are not suspicious, they are all guilty.
Rogers scored more points. Points are what a dom trades for salary. Points and usefulness beyond being a good workhorse. Noone is hiring Rogers to win races. Noone. They hire him to be a road captain and a good domestique. And to get points. And his last 2 years at Tinkov have so far netted him 50% of his last 2 years at Sky points.
Further more, he only won a stage at the Tour because the team had no GC leader. Otherwise he would be emptying himself for his team leader.
