Just wondering who I should cheer for for 3rd ...
The Hitch said:sanchez is 33 and never won a gt. He didnt do well until recently. That might mean something to those who say that this is a cleaner era. Some say that horner lost out because he wasnt doping and is doing well now because there is less so you might say the same about sanchez.
Benotti69 said:Menchov is Rabobank, how clean can they be when Rasmussen rode for them and he thought doping was ok unless you went over the 50% hemaocrit ...
Menchov beat a very motivated Danilo Di Luca in the 09 Gd'Italia, who was on cera. Di Luca was using the L'Aquila earthquake(06/04/09) as his reason to win it that year.
nvpacchi said:Sanchez has progressively improved slightly in each of his GC participations.
Tour 6th > 3rd or 4th
Vuelta 15th > 10th> 7th > 3rd > 2nd
No massive jumps in improvement, just consistently getting better over time.
The Hitch said:did he say something like this as an excuse for the doping?
