Rasch on Froome and Thomas:


a) says Froome and G have done all they could have. That they "have prepared well."

b) says that Froome and G haven't been close to being good enough, with the Tour in mind. They need to "step it up". (Start wanting it more?)


INEOS are hoping that the racing at the Dauphine will get them there. Obviously it won't. Curious timing to go public with this, also, especially when considering the fact that he's basically saying that they've done everything right up until this point.
 
In Yorkshire the Ineos chief Radcliffe threatened the team would be disbanded, you never saw the Murdocks saying anything remotely like that, it was a full on arms race
Literally everyone got something by letting sky dope.
UCI got a huuuuge Olympics payout.
ASO got a nice audience boost.
BC looked like geniuses to the point of voting members let them run the uci.

Ineos clearly did not have any idea how corrupt the sport actually is and thought they were getting a TdF squad. They can't even make it to the finish in the lead group.

Once again, the sport doing everything in its power to chase away legitimate sponsors

Conspiracy Theories:
  • The usual super-controlled micro-dosing for G & Dawg has been inoperative during Covid ...
  • The short space between recent races has meant contant in competition controls - not allowing time for OCC tricks to kick in.
Yes, and I was wondering whether Covid might have disrupted certain supply chains for special prep. Not sure how any of that would work, or not work. Pure imagineering, here.

I still cant understand that you guys keep going with the Dr Bermon meme, he is a smokescreen, Kashechkin was total ASS after he started working with him.

No way he is Froomes suplier, or anything other then a smokescreen, just like Carmichael was for Lance
 
Or, G is a lazy bones and Froome's not over his injury.
Please, don't use the "Trains harder" excuse. I fully realize it works everywhere, but it's one of the older doping excuses. You should look up Chris Horner. His transformation to Vuelta champion late in his career was, "eating fewer cheeseburgers." The other guys just didn't train as hard as good ole' Chris.

Froome at Dauphine was a joke. A supposed clean multi grand tour winner can't string 5 days of racing together? Seems legit.

Carmichael wasn't a smokescreen. Good ol' Chris was doping Armstrong as a teenager! Carmichael's program was very low tech and pre-EPO, making some riders sick. No way it could compete with Conconi/Ferarri/Fuentes.

Carmichael was smart to ride the wave of doping and corruption at both USA Cycling, then the UCI.
