Being a prodigy and being a doper aren't mutually exclusive. In fact I think it's incredibly likely he's both.It’s amazing .... all the conspiracy theories.
This kid has been a top endurance athlete since he was a wee lad.
He’s been consistent in his performances and how he rides throughout his cycling career.
Yet there are countless examples of riders who have come out of nowhere and become top riders or completely deviated from their specialty and become top of the line talents in different specialities.
Could he be doping? Who the hell knows. However, the assumption that he is doping simply because he’s shown the same consistency throughout the year while cracking on a few times would lend itself to the idea that maybe just maybe he’s a prodigy and he was born to be a cyclist.
Strange, that Dennis doesn’t have a clinic thread near the top of the forum seeing that he literally disappeared for 2 months.
If you really want to ask the doping question, you should probably start there.
It's not like Eddy Merckx was clean. But everyone always conveniently forgets he got popped 3 times.
