This idea that JV upsets riders so they tell about doping is a joke.
Who squealed on Lefevere, Martinelli, Rihs, Vino and all these other teams?
It took the feds to make most in the reasoned decision tell the truth!
A rider only tells when they are backed into a corner. Everyone in the sport knows that if they open their mouths about a team they will never get back in the sport.
Look at Di Luca, he got targeted for opening his mouth against RCS and breaking omerta.
If anything the Russian doping 99% of their athletes and recent Astana and Padua investigations again show the sport has not changed its bad habits and to think a rider can win over 3 weeks or a bgi race like a monument when guys are spending $10,000s to dope to win these races is laughable at best.
I aint gonna spend a big chunk of my wages to dope to not be competitive in the big important races FFS!!!
Sorry, JV has really got some people believing the BS.
Remember he didn't know where Wiggins was for most 2009 and Wiggins dodgy blood value at '09 TdF was 'machine calibration error', then he wants to sign Contador and lets not forget Hesjedal, for whom the dope never worked
, and who only admitted to doping after Rasmussen let that cat out of the bag, wins a Giro beating all Ferrari's riders and has some blood anomalies as well, again explained away by talk only of a 'machine calibration error'!
Anti doping testing doesn't work even still in 2014, unless UCI wants it too.
Garmin dope and do it very well. That is what Johnnyboy spends all that money internally testing his boys for.
