Didn't see it but he's working for cycling "omerta" tips now, so would expect him to be very politic in his posts.

Just looked and cannot see anything pertaining to the TT - got a link?
 
lol so true.

A few people "in the know" seem to think he is dodgy, but it seems that we are back to have never tested positive style arguments
Well he only joined Abarca in their "never tested positive" era.

Basso's numbers look like an error to me unless he is that un-aero. What did he do up to the first check? 6.0 W/kg on Montecampione? Yeh, nah.

I just checked but cant find anything, it seems like he deleted (I even replied to his tweet that day).

It was something like "wherabout will Uran lose the jersey?", something like that.

It's hillarious that Poels, Brambilla and De Gendt weren't even among the riders who finished the TTT together for OPQS.
Trolling or mistaken, this and the reactions by samson777, burning, Moose McKnuckles show beautifully how clinic works. One types untruth and others to whom it suits jump on it hungrily. Disgusting.

His single ITT performance at last year's Giro is the only outlier among all his ITT performances until Romandie this year. Otherwise, yes; he's consistently 4-6 s/km slower than the winner of ITT's. Source: ProCyclingStats

An average increase in performance of ~6 seconds per kilometer at (estimated) 50 km/hr requires ~20% more power (or reduced drag).

Just presenting the facts.

John Swanson
20% more power. :rolleyes:

Yo Poels, the 2nd coming of Uranium...







only that he was a great stage racer early on, with his horrible accident in between
 
All I could find with a search for 'Uran Whereabouts'. I don't remember this Gazzetta article?

https://twitter.com/EnriqueJulian23/status/446625509674598400

Tambien publica Gazzetta que en 2013 hubo problemas con los whereabouts de un ciclista que ya no esta en plantilla. Esto es Hayman o Uran.


Gazzetta also published in 2013 there were problems with the whereabouts of a cyclist who is no longer on the roster. This is Hayman or Uran.

Sigh. What happens on any given day doesn't erase what already happened before. This is, like Doping 101.

Pretty obvious allusion to whereabouts violations.
Yet people always use it.

Under that logic Santa wasn't anything special in the 2013 Giro becuase he sucked the second half of the mountains.

Nowhere near the same "logic".
Santa was super special from early March until May 19th, not one day.
Rest day, May 20th: His epo mate Di Luca gets popped for a positive.
Next day, dropped like a stone on a 3rd cat.

The logic here is that one TT tells all and we ignore the everything else.

Today Uran looked drained.
A one stage high followed by low = Lousy programme or putting too much effort into
one stage and suffering in the next test.

Di Luca got popped for a OOC test before the giro, the announcement was made during the Giro.
