I've seen this picture posted many times, not sure why. Who is that slightly pudgy rider who's pushing Henderson. Is he still with Sky?

We were the first to produce the Cycling version of "The Ugly Duckling".

Now everyone is doing it....

But we did it twice -for now....

Every time I look at that picture, I wonder how much weight he has lost since then.
I reckon about 7kgs +/-1kg
15lbs +/-2lbs, depending on if it is on the 22nd day of the GT.

but Wigans and Froome-dawg dont have much weight to lose during the GT, so it would not be 1kg or more that a rider in the last decade or 90s lost, they might lose half of what the others did in a different era.

remember, they had cortisone and clen in the other eras, so it is not these products that cause the weightloss.

it is a combo of new peptides, a cocktail, AICAR, GW, lipotropin, plus maybe a potBelge chaser of clen and cortisone.

sry about breach of protocol Dear Wiggo, but I create the rules, i break the rules like the peloton on asphalt or hotpour or tarmac and lime

71-72 at 6 foot, to about 64/65 at 6 foot. NOT NORMAL. he did not have normal weight to lose, even on day 22 of tdf with Barloworld.

and yet JV says it's perfectly normal, suggesting Dekker was going to do the same. ridiculous.
Dekker had no weight to lose as a Rabo rider. Just like Froome had no weight to lose as a Barloworld rider. just like Wiggins had no weight to lose as a Columbia rider. There was were was was not a scerrick of excess gram/fat/weight to lose. they were not dario pieri or jan ullrich in the offseason

Of course SKY was the pioneer in a lot of things in the new cycling. I am not a SKY fan but this is something I should acknowledgem as all the cycling acknoeledge.
Really? What specifically did they pioneer and what evidence do you have that they pioneered it?
Oh god, don't make him link to his blog again, which is basically a brief summary of what appears in Walsh's book but with better grammar.

I assume it's all clearly delineated there with confirmation that "no one ever thought of that before" on each point...
 
We were the first ones to takes wheels from other teams now everybody's... - Not so fast Richie.

Clarke giving his wheel up to Porte. Not good. Mathews helping out with the chase. Totally fine with that.

As much as I wasn't looking forward to a possible Porte win, this is just silly. Dodgy TUE to go win Romandie last year for Team Sky, no problems. Get a wheel from another team, pinged for 2 minutes. Way to go pro cycling.
