What motivates you to make a post like that if not to imply that you think Porte is clean?
I wrote about my discussion with a rider as I thought some here might find it interesting. You decided to lie about what I wrote in order to troll. Some might call that

Relax, Jimmy, relax!

You know it's TUEsday tomorrow and a rest day, medical miracles will happen in hotel rooms in France.

Porte's eyes will be bunging out if his head come Wednesday.

Brailsford is probably thinking - should we? Should we not? If Porte grows wings it would be fairly obvious. I said he's at TVG. If he becomes Mandone '13 then even Walsh might blush.

Bit of a quandry for Brailsfraud, is he asking Porte to lay off a bit? If he took yellow today and kept it for the rest of the tour it would be a huge red flashing light. 2nd or 3rd but no higher?

Porte was 50/1 the evening before Froome pulled out. I think it was a wise each way bet :D

A Podium would also line him up for the Leaders number next year when Dawg is cut adrift.

I don't see it unfortunately :( I think Nibali is going to cruise to the win and Porte might drop to 3rd/4th

You just know Nibali will crash and Porte will win. It has to happen.
Maybe Nibali could test positive? He is already very suspect in bot-land so this would come as a surprise to no one. Then Porte could cruise to victory.

Oh this is funny...this is a main story on the news.com.au site, most Aussie will appreciate that while the story itself is mundane, the tag line with a big pic of our Aussie lad Richie : Out of Nowhere, is this our new Steven Bradbury?
Calling it a Bradbury is pretty harsh on Porte. Bradbury would have been like 1000/1 to win the Gold.

Porte rode stronger in 2013. Waiting for him to unleash.
He also didn't have almost the entire season out with illness leading up to the Tour. I would expect him to be under the levels he was achieving last year, since his training must have been affected.
