he trained in South-Africa last November View: https://twitter.com/officeguru23s/status/1192373910639202305Parasite? Some years he trained in South Africa, home of bilharzia.
Indeed. No idea what was going on, but this seems fishy.So... why was there a need to adjust his program weeks in advance?
I can asure you they haven't used ketones at this point in the season yet. It's only being used during the important races and certainly not during their preseason training rides.Okay great, nice PR, but I wonder if it had anything to do with the (yes, perfectly legal) ketone supplements Jumbo are using (and Sunweb aren't and weren't).
To be honest, that had little to no impact on Jumbo last year. It got lost in the hundreds of media articles in which Jumbo was talked about as THE exemple of a good and performing team within the peloton (justified seen the results, but after a while it gets tiring).Okay great, nice PR, but I wonder if it had anything to do with the (yes, perfectly legal) ketone supplements Jumbo are using (and Sunweb aren't and weren't).
Exogenous ketones can potentially cause serious stomach issues (and lower blood sugar levels, which could have have negatively affected his performance , as well)
Would their sponsors want that kind of publicity (again) , considering the headlines they got when they admitted to using them last year? Dumoulin is one of their star riders, also.

Farfetched, but it sound plausible. At the end of the day it is humans working. They make mistakes.The ketones scenario, while funny if true, i can't really see it. Few teams are this organized as TJV, checking everything, eye for detail, nutrition... If Tom's testresults have really been going backwards for 2 months, it would be a huge oversight on their part.
