Good to see but have the French guys had enough and decided to get on the program?

please point to any supernatural perf by a french rider or STFU.

oh, right, you can only be "cool" in the clinic if you are persuaded that EVERYONE dopes.

dopey

random..........................riders one does not care for

again cheating is neither french british or reserved by any other nationality

watching todays tour stage 'bossed' by nibali I did think that the overall flow of riding on the final climb was more like pre oxygon vectoring days

I'm for random trolling

Spoken like someone who doesn't know a lot about cycling.

Bardet and Pinot as random French guys. Lol.

I thought french guys had never heard of marginal gains. Seems odd that they can drop everyone from sky and garmin that easily.

You say that as if they were dropping an in-form Porte or if Talansky was still here in top shape.

Nope! Just a little casting for the leading role in the Brailsfraud's reality show "France's got talent" (in other words, looking for NCEFTW - New Clean Era French Tour Winner)

Yes looks like they're all on the catwalk for Dave.

Pinot has always been a personal favourite. I really hope he makes the podium. I tipped him last year until Sky decided to create warp speed cycling again.

When they start beating Tony Martin in a time trial, then I'll get angry but until then, it's nice to see the French have someone else to cheer on besides Tommy V. throwing himself all over his bike.

What Guy Random is doping? The Randoms are a great French cycling family and Guy was always one of my favorites. Such a shame.

Seems like logical progression for both Bardet and Pinot to me.
I agree. Bardet is a show. 23 years old. Pinot I think is the more likely to go on & win the Tour one day. I just hope it's with a French team.

Sky would ruin him.

Today they showed Valverde who's the boss,but i'm sure they are cleans,plus french don't dope.It's time for Brailsford to choose one of them and get to his next objective a frenchman on the top step of the podium.:D

if no one raises an eyebrow after today's stage, we should probably move this thread out of clinic section.

Only 1 French rider has abandoned so far (Vichot) out of 44 starters. Maybe we just know how to stay on our bikes.

Frenchfry what's it like in France at the moment? Bardet must be bigger than One Direction with the girls? And Pinot better than an actual Pinot?

I'm sure those two guys will be doing TV adverts for marmalade for the rest of the year!

At least they (Pinot and Bardet) have the good grace to look suitably knackered at the end of the climb...come to that, during the climb too.
This is last year but yes, agreed. No smiling and warming down here!
