But it's not "Wiggins and others". Wiggins is truly a unique case. And even then, basically it comes down to "there's too many variables, we have to stick to our skepticism."Larry Finnegan said:Taking the times Wiggins and others in question have done in previous years when they were finishing way down the field and presumably racing clean and comparing them with the times they are now producing is a good comparison, making allowance for motivation, weather, equipment improvement etc. The 'sod this' factor of being pummeled by Armstrong, Basso, Ullrich and the rest has to be considered too.
