Armstrong did that time on a FULL program. transfusions, cortisone, testosterone for recovery, training the whole season with EPO. a clean rider should not even be close to a time set by Armstrong in a Tour that he won, at any point in the race.JimmyFingers said:At what point during the Tour did Armstrong ride up i.e. how much racing was in his legs? Was the parcours of the stage the same, or different? How about the wind? Did the timing start from the same point? And end?
I'm not saying Froome is clean, just that I hope he is. But I've consistently said performance is not proof, so I'm hardly going to start to condemn him on the back of that one. Early in the Tour, Sky got smashed up the next day and Froome was outclimbed in the thrid week, so it's all relative.
Isn't this thread about Kimmage being a bit of a tw@t though?
it's amazing that this is even argued by anyone. it's right in front of everyone's face.
