Löfkvist article

Löfkvist article

Did you notice in the article about Löfkvist that Cyclingnews repeatedly refers to him by his first name? I find that very odd! Several possible explanations:

- LaFlorecita has joined the CN writers team
- CN writers have been infected with what I call rapidly spreading laflorecitism
- CN just copy pasted the report from Sky's website
- CN have now become the official publicity outlet for Sky.

I personally believe the last one to be the most likely. Sky and IG markets have officially taken over CN and now we get fed team propaganda disguised as unbiased news, like when they assured us that there was nothing sketchy about Wiggins meeting with ASO ... well as long as it's an independent news source that says it then it must be true :(
