If they rumours do come out to be true about Moscon I hope we have the usual suspects come and tell us it’s sad that he’s being caught after all that’s the response that EPO Pantano got, or is that only saved for non team Sky/Ineos riders

Heard about it too somewhere else on the web. Supposedly the rumours indicate a connection to an ongoing case/investigation. Hope it isn't true, this is the last thing cycling needs.
just wandered into the clinic ?
:lol: but for real, I’d like to believe that it is a minority who dopes, even though the truth might be more grim than that. I just don’t want to endure another round of cycling bashing. While Moscon isn’t a household name like Froome or Contador, he is a bigger fish than Pantano.
 
Mod hat on:

Not with the same staff, riders, ongoing issues etc. no, I don't think it does. I also think that it's very likely that we'll end up with fragmented discussions going on, particularly if the rumoured news turns out to be true.

From browsing around various sites, I get the impression that not many people, not even diehard Sky fans, would ever feel sad about anything happening to Moscon.

I haven't read anything Moscon-related, although it wouldn't surprise me.
Anybody care to give more insight?
There's a rumour about him being one of the cyclists that is involved in Operation Aderlass, the Austrian anti-doping raid that happened at the nordic wc. He also moved to Innsbruck last year.
At first I was thinking that it was just crazy talk, but the rumour is still around and he suddenly stopped performing at a high level.

Is there a reason this couldn't have been posted in the Sky thread? Im just about to renamed that now due to the name change and I'm going to combine these with it unless someone has a good reason not to?
renaming the Sky thread works for me. My .02: Combine away!

Rename and Merge KB, no need for more threads.

Re' Moscon. The Sychophants will see him as a lone ranger and with his track record they wont care if he's gone. It wont blot the paper on Sir Dawg et al.
If he is availing himself of the local Austrian clinic then he probably is a lone ranger.

And we all know the last thing Moscon wants is to be a minority :eek:

I'm sure you guys will get a good laugh out of this aswell.
I don't see the funny part, really. He's just stating the obvious about Simon Yates. And if the bit about Froome's 'fueling strategy' would be enough to make my day, I'd feel quite sorry for myself.
What i was trying to get os him pointing out the "miraculous" fueling strategy in a funny tone. You can read into that what you will.

Nah, I think you are reading too much into that. I saw it at the time. And looking again, I don't see any insinuation.
 
I watched the tail end of the Bernal post Suisse tour and he said he was going to back home to Andorra to prep for the Tour. I guess most riders will be taking this week to discuss how many blood bags they are taking to France with them ?

But how accurate are guesses like that? If you believe it, fair enough i suppose, but it's not exactly clinical or forensic. When was the last time anyone found one in a Grand Tour?
