Purely for fun, let's indulge in a bit of speculation. Speculation is the mother of invention, so let's get to it: which three riders do you think are most likely to get caught for doping at this year's Tour de France.

I'll start the needle plunging, sorry ball rolling:

1) Vincenzo Nibali
2) Peter Sagan
3) Alejandro Valverde

Think small fish... let's see...

Wait, this is sort of in bad taste.
Vanendert, Kessiakoff, Kern.

A soigneur might get caught transporting, but I doubt there will be 3 riders found to have doped.

Maybe 1, but likely to be a Domestique.

Wiggins.
Based on the hype and sensational post-Tenerife performances, I'd say the TdF is his to lose if the UCI/ASO has it their way.

But, IF the press gets advance information AND the UCI blows the cover-up like they did with Contador, then it's another scandal after the "Cleanest Tour Peloton Ever" version 2012.

Like the others said, if it's anyone, it's some guy that the UCI has calculated they can send back to regional racing never to ride in the ProTour again.

Nobody, or someone from Astana.
Funny you should mention Astana seeing how their presumed dope dealer from years past and 2012 got named and shamed in the USADA letter.

I think an Astana positive would work for Pat too. He's got the Russian Makarov(sp??) gunning for his job and all. Nothing like spooking UCI delegates by dragging Astana down with a PED scandal.
 
ROFL...Sagan...yeah, right. Dollars to Donuts, no way on that kid.

I will come on the forum and proclaim what a loser and how gullible a supporter of Sagan I was and take all public humiliation humbly if that happens.

Wiggins....hmmm...probably a bunch of low level guys trying to make a name and land contracts and rides for the next season.

Oh wait, or they even testing this year? haha

Well, since this is his first post-RSNT Tour (in conjunction with the USADA witness list rumblings), the smart money has to be on Levi.

After that it's a toss up between:

Do people honestly think Bradley Wiggins is a doping cheat? Amazes me how bad some people's ability to judge character is.

You start a thread about people who might get caught and name Sagan, who as far as I know has not even been linked to anything regarding doping. Yet you become mad when Wiggins is mentioned? :rolleyes:

Yes, but Wigans is Anglo, they don't dope. And he's a nice boy, not sneaky looking like Sagan or Vino.......:rolleyes:

You know Wiggins personally? I presume you're not gonna judge his character by a couple of interviews are you? Even if you were his bff, I doubt you could make an accurate judgement about his character to say with any plausability if he doped or not. The nicest guys in the peloton have used doping in the past...

This maybe deserves a separate thread/poll - the nicest (humble, honest, trustworthy looking, etc.) guy ever caught juiced.

you are being sarcastic... right?
 
so if we want to get really into the USPS conspiracy UCI should be catching and shaming anyone who is a potential witness against lance still active today.

first on the list:

George Hincapie
