I fear for someone wanting to have a link to that.Bronstein said:Another example of Walsh's double standards from Seven Deadly Sins:
"That evening [after the Sestriere stage] I called Alex Butler, my sports editor at the Sunday Times.
‘Hell of a stage today,’ he said. ‘Armstrong’s got it now, hasn’t he?’
‘He will win the Tour, no doubt about that.’
‘You’re not convinced about him?’
I can hear disappointment in his voice.
‘Afraid not. Actually, I think it stinks. This guy has ridden the Tour de France four times before now, ridden nine mountain stages and not been anywhere near. Suddenly he’s an outstanding climber."
In the three GTs prior to the 2011 Vuelta, Froome never finished in the top 20 of any mountain stage. Yet during the 2011 Vuelta he suddenly became one of the best climbers in the world. It seems very inconsistent to believe on the one hand that Froome is clean, yet adopt a skeptical attitude with respect to Armstrong.
But, hey, lets not call out Walsh's hypocritical stance on Team Sunday Times.
