Of course Movistar are dirty, but when was the last time they Brailsforded the press?

Full genius Froome gave the sign yesterday that it's hunting season. Everything is allowed, he gloves are off. Movistar took he hint and they topped off early, to remain competitive.

I wonder when Valverde gets popped again.
 
Sky were shockingly bad today. That's all.

When people like Voigt and Gallopin can make the main group, it's little surprise that Castroviejo etal can do so as well.

Christ, now it looks like I'm defending Vomistar.

Movistar are part of the new cleanER era, Valverde is Spain's David Millar, Quintana the Movi's token clean Colombian to match Sky's Uran and Henao and their docs, well let's say saddle sores are scared of Movistar.............

What exactly would you like to discuss?

I am trying to help you make it on to page 2, as Movistar don't have bots to defend them.
I like their jerseys - they even say O2 on the sleeves. :D

Ruben Plaza came back from the dead today. haven't seen him ride like that since he was on a Fuentes program.
You missed him coming 11th in the Tour in 2010 then? Rubinho shore his leg nearly in half in March 2011 and it took him over a year to get back to any sort of level. He's been pretty good this year, won Castilla y León, and ultimately is a fair way down the GC and was domestiquing today, so nothing too outlandish.

There are plenty of suspicious things about Movistar, I'm just not convinced Rubén Plaza today is the first thing that springs to mind other than that it's a performance by Rubén Plaza.

This. Exactly.

Movistar knew it was hunting season after watching Dr. Froomenstein tear through the peloton this spring.

If they did pop Valverde it might be interesting to find out what he's doing to be competitive in this era. Then again they might just do him for some secondary substance like Berto or Frank Schleck.

Movistar are, quite possibly, the team with the second most powerful gear this season. Their performance at the Tour has been a long time coming. No surprises here.
Movistar won the Team GC at the Giro this year.

And then the longtime senior manager at Movistar is Eusebio Unzué Labiano. He had Delgado and Indurain as athletes. What's their program? No idea. They've got the experience though!!

Is it wrong that I can over look the potential(quite possibly blatant) doping and enjoy the smackdown they were putting on sky? :eek:

Wait, they haven't failed a test for five years (with the exception of Costa's supplement issue), maybe they are clean.
Since the new clean limit was raised to 6.5 W/kg yesterday, I feel confident in pronouncing Movistar 100% clean.

apart from this year, when was the last time a clean rider won Liege?

Or have they not?
