You lot are such clowns. A legendary rider gets over an illness which has killed some careers and gets back to winning and it has to be doping.

Coming up: Fabio Jakobsen and Remco Evenepoel haven't done anything for a year. How are they form on back?

Clowns incapable of processing a thought without doping.
 
I am guessing Ellingworth is a clown as well for not offering a 'legendary rider who got over an illness which has killed some careers' more than a 1-year contract?

Or maybe he is a clown for offering this legendary rider a contract even when that legendary rider had mono?

Or maybe the likeliest explanation is that even people close to Cavendish knew that he was done and could not offer him more.

So just being in the environment of Quickstep again made him so happy and confident that he's able to win races again a few months after he left Bahrain? For personal reasons I wish everybody who's dealing with mono the best. It can ** your life up.
But this is a very sudden turnaround, just when he joined an infamous team (and also here, I have become to like QS in a way because they do so many things right). And these weren't tactical wins. The lead-out was a catastrophe each time. He has a punch and strength again. Riders mysteriously start to lose their power when they leave QS, they mysteriously gain it when they join. This is a quite extreme example.
To think of doping in a sport with such a history, well, in sports in general, when a sudden, very surprising comeback at 35 with these circumstances, occurs, is not making somebody a clown. Less is it so when it happens after working with experienced doping doctors.

Show me the physiological reasons behind it and I'm more than willing to believe in other explanations, because I'd love it to be different.

(Jakobsen's and Evenepoel's cases are very different, I don't know what they are doing in your argumentation.)

Overly cynical to look askance at Almeida absolutely crumpling here after the reportedly difficult negotiations and recent confirmation he'll leave the team? >_>
A bit, yes, but we may get a few chances to see if it hold any water since most of the team is negotiating until the end of the season.

eh, what are the implications?

they cut him off the juice because he is leaving? he did a good TT so its not like he is without form and somebody from DQS worked for him (knox?)

he is in good form but what? saves himself? if anything this is the time to show real strength he could leverage for a contract somewhere else

looks to me like he just had a bad day, now if he doesnt work for evenepoel at all, that will be certainly telling a story but everyone knows he was leaving before giro, so why even take him on the team if they knew he would be off juice/unwilling to cooperate

Team with doping associated doctor magically turns washed up rider into world beater for billionth time?

Obviously we're the clowns here.
