With Thomas the most telling to me has always been his reaction to the news in 2012 that usada was going to investigate lance. Rather than happy like someone genuinely antidoping would be, he was angry that they wouldn't leave the champion alone.MartinGT said:My beef was the way he got dropped on the Paterberg only to suddenly magically appear at the leading bunch just after with hardly a deep breath from him in sight!
Suddnely he's smashing it on the Kwaremont and then spends most of the time of the 3 breakaway riders on the front doing most of the work for 40kmish? Then 4km out he smashes it again and drops Stybar like he's just a sunday rider out with his other pal Sagan
But of course its his track pedigree that always him to do that. Yeh of course.
I did like Thomas, but his reaction to the CIRC report was a smash in the face. How dare they point the finger. Cycling is cleans, especially us Brits and Sky. How dare you Cookson, havent you spoke to your son or Walsh?
