Almida with the tribute performance to his home tour, hitting the front early and forgetting to get tired and finish his pull
He left Portugal when he was very young mate, he knew he wouldn't have any chance against the modern Big Mig from Uruguay called Mauricio Moreira.

Good luck to follow Mauricio Moreira in August on Senhora da Graca doing 6.5 w/kg with a temperature of almost 40 °C!

I'm glad you brought this up. VdP's 'quick' trips to Spain and 'short' altitude camps have always been suspicious to me. Reminds me of an unstoppable Dario Cologna flying back and forth from Sochi to his home in between races for a little top off en route to winning 2 golds at Sochi after a mediocre season (would have possibly won 3 if he didn't break his pole near the end of the 50k).

Broke his ski actually, not pole. But yeah, a 3rd gold wouldn’t have been out of the question.

Both Benji and Patrick have talked about doping in the past too. Benji has the classical stance that if someone is found guilty they can be chastized for it, but never before that. Patrick on the other hand used to say they all dope. Some times he can be heard hinting at that still by saying he can't swear on anyone being clean.
Yep before they made it big Patrick was wide open about them all doping, like Durianrider levels of cynicism lol. Then complete 180 and deleted all vids with mentions of doping once they got mainstream. At least you can tell he wants to keep it real and doesn’t actively feed the audience fairytales.

Oh man, I have not heard of Durian recently. Is that tool still around the youtuber universe?
