So when does The Clinic board a$$plosion happen? LOL, this is so funny. How many people here profess their love for the uber clean Froomedonkey with one nickname, and post their disbelief of old man Horner on another? Come on...there's gotta be a few of you.

Face it, all of this talk should be simply based on which doper you like, and don't like, because NOT A SINGLE ONE is clean :D
totally agree. A lot of skyfans out there, critizicing Horner, while defending their african national hero Froome, whoose performances are even way more ridiculous than Horner's...

In the rainbow jersey. On Team Astusha p/b Amgen.

Patrick Brian McCookson presides over the celebrations.

Long live cycling. Amen.
Sounds good. the only thing missing now is to hire Walsh as official twitter supporter and Race Radio for the weather forecasts.

Lol -> A fan of Luigi (rode for Brunyeel like redacted number 15), there is evidence and speculation, evidence against Luigi and Rider 15.

Just ask Tyler and Levi

Are there any examples in the history of sport of someone doing something similar to Horner at that sort of age? I certainly can't think of any.

At least Horner's not out time trialing like Martin or Cance like Froome did.

Now the sport is clean we can expect surprising performances from unexpected riders. I am glad that Horndog got his chance to shine. It would have been a tragedy if he had retired before the blood doping era ended and not received his shot at a big win.

Forza Horner!

Hampsten (Giro), LeMond (Tour), and Horner (Vuelta), champions we can believe in.

There is not really too much evidence in the sport of people doing what Froome has done either, well actually there is but we know how they all happened, Chiappucci, Riis, Armstrong, Perez, Mosquera etc, etc, etc.

What has Froome got to do with anything?

Hopefully on Sunday afternoon, we'll have the full set(at last)!

Come on Horner!!!

Poulidor had been around for years though, he wasn't showing a big improvement on his previous form there.
I am tired of hearing this argument, Horner has shown signs of being one of the top climbers in the world for many years. He's been plagued by injury and unfortunate circumstances, but still has turned out very good performances in week long stage races and GTs when the stars aligned. Doesn't mean he's clean, but it's not like he came out of nowhere.

To Brits who started watching cycling in 2012, it seems that Horner suddenly appeared on the planet.

The rest of the cycling world knows his palmares.

If only he'd won the Automatic Jock Strap race, we'd have more believers then.

An example of an athlete winning one of the biggest competitions in his sport at age 42 after never winning anything relevant before.
That's a completely different question. (And he's 41).

I was just answering Bernie's question like it was a quiz question, not offering any opinion of Horner.
