Not possible. From what I can glean from voices on this site and in the media, the "doping era" was over as soon as the Biological Passport came along and Sky started telling everyone they were clean.
Lmao! If you believe Horner is "the cleans", then you probably still believe Cancer Jesus is "cleans" & it's a conspiracy against him. Remember, Wonderboy was tested like "1465 times & never 1 positive". I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles". There are SEVERAL sources that have questioned him (Horner)being clean.

Here's just one:

To be fair you must surely admit that the biological passport had a significant effect?

It may seem simplistic but 2010 TdF seemed more believable than 2009. 2011 was slower again. Schleck and Evans lumbered up the Alpe in about 42 minutes.

Geraint Thomas launching off the back of the Sky train in 2018 did it in about 41minutes. That is significantly slower than the 38 minutes Landis did in 2006 or 39 minutes by Sastre in 2008 into a headwind.

I thought my sarcasm, when combined with my posting record, woulda been more obvious. :)

Still one of the GOAT moments in cycling lore despite the obvious implications for both riders. The *** that went on in that Veulta prior were bordeline but the attacks, out of saddle climbing and speed 1v1 up that climb will remain in cycling lore for 100 years to come

Chris Horner recently (four months ago) again addressed suspicions about clinching his 2013 Vuelta win 38 days before his 42nd birthday when chatting on a podcast.

"As the doping controls get better, my results get better. That's the only facts I can tell your fans.

"If you look at the doping controls, as they got better, my results got better okay. I didn't come up with some magical way of avoiding the detection that everyone else got caught with okay.

"So those are the facts, nothing else any other rider ever tells you can you believe is true or false.

"You can just say 'this is what he said', but you can't believe it's true or false, but if doping control got better and my results got better while I'm riding for the smallest teams in the world at the same time, not making millions of dollars, you tell the story."
