if it was a British Tour winner it would have been realised already

As there were exactly 0 British Grand Tour winners prior to 2006, it would be highly unlikely a British Tour winner was invovled as Wiggins was a 2nd (?) year pro (so possible, although unlikely that he was going to Spain for doping) and Froome hadn't turned pro yet. Most of the names are likely Spanish and Italian and not cyclists.
 
I think what Ricky is getting at is that British winners are unfairly picked on, discriminated against, treated in a prejudicial manner and held to a higher standard than everyone else, purely because they are British.

Which is bollocks, of course. Ricky only started watching cycling in 2012 do he doesn't know that in the 13 years prior to a British winner, 9 of the Tour winners had their wins revoked :lol:
 
Nah, ricky just wants to shift the subject of discussion onto Sky and British riders, so he can accuse the board of being obsessed with them by turning another discussion that isn't about Sky and British riders into a discussion of Sky and British riders.

Froome was technically still a Kenyan in those days.
