Why did you answer? it was directed at sky conspiracy theorists - their fans.the sceptic said:Sky are clean, but their riders wont peak for another 15 years, its a bit too early for them. Looking forward to see how fast Froome will climb in 2030.
Anyway this thread is about Horner. Who will sign him up next year? Garmin? sky?
Heaven forbid someone should mock the amazing hypocrisy of those who believe in Froome yet question Horner. We would not want something logical like that to enter a discussion. No wonder why this place has markedly fewer posters than it used to.sittingbison said:Gentle(wo)men,
please desist with trolling and baiting by introducing off topic...heaven forbid...Sky and especially the Dawg. This thread is about another Chris, lets keep it that way
Horner is 42. So less is more.jilbiker said:Contador comes into Vuelta last year and folks say "he does not have enough racing miles in his legs" as excuse for the average first 2 weeks. Now its Horner is fantastic in the first 2 weeks because "he has little racing miles in his legs". Sounds weird, right? Which one is it?

@nealrogers @richardmoore73 @Ben_M_Berry Are you guys discussing the same Chris Horner that chased down Hincapie in final tdf for talking?
Like for like.Zoetemelk was caught in drug tests during the Tour de France in 1977 and 1979. He also tested positive in 1983. At the time, blood doping was not considered a huge deal in road cycling and he mostly escaped punishment.
I thought the consensus was that the confused, old-man Horner didn't realize the peloton was letting Hincapie do a parade lap for his final Tour. I guess JV knows otherwise.IzzyStradlin said:
not sure why you consider this relevant, but Cancellara did eject most of the peloton on the second to last climb (including the rest of radioshack)coinneach said:Beetroot juice just makes you cr*p more: can help with weight loss a bit
But this much??
Nibali was going full gas the last 2kms and couldn't eat into his lead
And almost no help from his team, unlike the leading contenders
Thanks.... that was the obscure interview i looked for at the Froome/Horner-Thread.thehog said:JV will sign him up. He's all for clean cycling.
Funny enough I accidentally clicked on the first page of this thread and read the OP.
What are the chances there hadn't been talk in Radioshack about Hincapie and the Garmin boys and their cooperation with USADA? Don't you think they were foaming around the mouth to see Hincapie even race that Tour? Of course they were expecting him to go for that little honorary solo break on Champs-Élysées, and of course Horner followed him out of spite. He gave us a Armstrong/Simeoni deja vu. All though seeing him fly in Spain this year makes one wonder about his mental health.benzwire said:I thought the consensus was that the confused, old-man Horner didn't realize the peloton was letting Hincapie do a parade lap for his final Tour.

All of the 2013 Spain riders may be clean. Though I really doubt it, it is a possibility.FoxxyBrown1111 said:Now this guy must go down. Same arrogant behavior as LA. Knowingly doping big time a la 90s style, but still having the chutzpah to spit in the face of other riders/fans/observers by giving obscure interviews, chasing down those who break omerta and "winning" at an absurd age from nowhere.
One more puke on this guy.
That there is some Grade A Trollkraft right there fellows. A man who defends Froome writing those words is a man who knows how to throw a lure into the water.FoxxyBrown1111 said:Thanks.... that was the obscure interview i looked for at the Froome/Horner-Thread.
This guy is beyond help. He (Horner) needs to be caught to learn a lesson or two.
Which means he wasn't suspicious then and there, provided that's what the index actually is (the UCI insists it was not). Means ******-all over 3 years later.zigmeister said:
Yeah, cleaner than clean. Reminds me of "...Lance to Landis" where Walsh wrote about Armstrongs samples were cleaner than clean... i guess Horner learned a lot from his clone how to manipulate... only that this can lead to serious own problems (like missing cancer markers in tests)zigmeister said:
Yop, i am in the same boat as Walsh. We are all idiots...ChewbaccaD said:That there is some Grade A Trollkraft right there fellows. A man who defends Froome writing those words is a man who knows how to throw a lure into the water.
