Actually we would. If the sport cleaned up its act that would mean a lot of people found the road to Dasmascus and would be telling us and turning on those who didn't. The silence about doping from the peloton is deafening.nslckevin said:But you don't. You have assumptions and guesses but you don't really KNOW. You may very well be right. I don't know. But that's my point. You don't KNOW either.
If what was going on behind the scenes was clean, then we would see a lot more of it, but we dont. Teams wont release riders srm files....nslckevin said:That is what I hate. A bunch of people who've never been closer to the pro peloton than watching on TV or maybe on the roadside who KNOW what's going on behind the scenes. I'm in the same boat. I'm just not arrogant enough to assume that I KNOW what is really going on.
You know what evidence i have, it is his silence.nslckevin said:It is possible that Servais Knaven was doped to the gills when he won, but is now a true believer in clean cycling. It's also possible that he is supplying drugs to the whole team. Do you have any evidence of what he's actually doing right NOW or are you just assuming (*** u me) that he's running a dirty team?
If you believe he was clean as a Paris Roubaix winner when his team took all 3 podium places then forget about trying to discuss doping.
The sports history is a cesspit. If i was clean i would want to distance myself from it at every opportunity. Not too many doing that in a meaningful way.
If they are not trying to show they are clean by being as transparent as possible and addressing the doping then why believe they are different from the past?
I dont see any difference between now and then.
