It also depends on wheter the majority accepts the rider in question is doping or not. For some it would be ”anglophobia” to not accept Froome and whatever british that turned a leg around some pedals suddenly turning up as the best riders ever.It is because the Dawg is African.
A not exhaustive peruse of this section will make anyone realize that as a minimum riders of the following nations have been under suspicions if not outright accusations : England,Ireland, Portugal,Spain,Luxembourg,Belgium, Netherlands,Denmark,Norway,Kazakhstan,Russia,Slovakia,Slovenia, Germany,USA,Australia,Colombia,Argentina and I think I am way short.
The number of pages a rider gets here depend on 2 factors . 1) How successful the rider has been recently. 2) How outrageous their "transformation" has been when compared to their previous performances. Sometimes 1 and 2 are present at the same time and those are the most popular topics. It 's not surprise that people like Froome will get a way bigger thread than Quintana. This is not a geopolitical Machiavellian calculation.
For some it was ”anti-english” or ”racism” not cheering on England in the euros.
