The poster his point is not 'poor armstrong'. It's just not really original to bash armstrong ;)
one shouldn't jump on the bandwagon before its 100% safe seems to be the motto. Welcome to the club Mr Kittel and co.

Yes, nothing wrong with it, just adds very little value at this point.

Bugno, dope doctors, Ferrari customers etc. The list is endless.

Kittel did hit out at Vino and Astana and said he wouldn't consider signing for them if he ever left Argos.

I have been saying in numerous posts that the initiative, i.e. the push to prove the peloton is clean MUST come from the riders, publicly. It is the riders that have the most to gain by being transparent with the fans. This is a good first start.

However the riders need to follow up by routinely telling the fans publicly

1. What their haematocrit levels are.

2. The results of all of their in competition and out of competition test results

3. If they have missed a whereabouts disclosure

This is the price the current peloton must pay for the sins of the past peloton but anything less leaves the fans cynical and doubting.
Even just number 1 throughout the year would be a start .
Anyone not doping and playing with their levels should have no problem with it if it was across the board.
It could easily be rolled out aimed at catching people, especially in the grand tours.....but will it happen ?

No.

No.
It's a nice idea. However, the problem is that you get all these people trying to analyse blood data despite having no expertise. A rider releases their data and the fact that it isn't a perfect curve means that they get called out for doping.
