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:

Froome was technically still a Kenyan in those days.

This operation was felt by the bookmakers also. I remember that the indices of some Spanish football teams decreased after this operation. I was betting a lot on the Spanish teams back then, just like I do today. The first decade of the 2000s was shameful for them. But this didn't affect a lot their fans, people like shows, and for them doesn't matter if their team used supplements or not. For some of them is important to have a show to watch, while for others, like me, it's important to have the numbers moving on the table so that they can make money from bets.
