Landa will be a tough sell in regards the ZTP in the non-Murdoch owned media.


After all even the average Mirror reader knows Astana is full of dopers.
The average Mirror reader will have never heard of Astana along with 98% of the British population.
The average Mirror journalist will have never heard of Astana the city let alone Astana the cycling team.

Lets see how the NOP and Mo situation pans out.

That could embolden a few outlets.
The media are hardly digging hard on Mo.

The UK newspapers will not risk libel cases.

Landa to sign for sky? loll
I think one of the first things that really made me doubt Vaughters as a manager was way back in 2009 when it was reported he was trying to sign Contador after that year's TdF, where his ascent of Verbier was so thermonuclear my only frame of reference would be something like the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsar_Bomba - if you're trying to run a clean team you don't sign riders doing blatantly doped performances.

And now apparently Sky want to sign the 2015 equivalent of Ricco :)
:confused:

Now?

You do know back in 2009 when Vaughters was trying to sign Contador, Brailsford signed Wiggins

who on that very same Verbier climb

And you think its only now when they try to sign Landa that it is dodgy?
Think you misread my post because I don't "think it's only now" anything.

The fact that sky are even interested in signing Landa should be the final nail in the coffin for anyone who thinks zero tolerance policy was actually a real thing.

I mean, it was only a few months ago that brailsfraud was asking questions about astana, and now he is going to sign their most suspect rider?

Pretty funny that Sky's #1 fanboy couldn't watch/enjoy the Giro because of certain riders. Now he'll be writing articles fawning over one of them.

Walsh better keep up because things moving fast, as Froome told us just the other day this era will stand the test of time and sir Dave is on the brink of recruiting dawgs own Roberto Heras. He simply cant go on like before.

I suspect a bit of a syntax error for the poor chap.

good news everyone. The campervan is still providing marginal gains!

The much-discussed motorhome of Team Sky remains a factor in the endless quest for marginal gains with the British team. Director sportif Servais Knaven explained to Cyclingnews that the team is now using it for meetings and when possible to provide riders with the comfort of a single room.
Team Sky is still making the best of its motorhome at this Tour de France, however, although it’s unclear whether there are one or two vehicles in use. The team appears to be using them for meetings, as breakfast and dining room and as dorms for their staff, freeing up space that allows some riders to have their own rooms.
 
Re:

Surely it reduces the risk for sir Dave to catch a cold and become a lesser gain for Dawg? The braintrust at Sky needs a bug-free environment for continuing to be this beacon of marginal gains that we know.

Anyone not needed should cruise that climb to save as much as possible for the TTT the following day.
