WinterRider said:Is it possible that Leinders actually didn't do any doping/dope monitoring at Sky?
If he was in charge of doping at Sky, why would anyone there bring attention on him by, for example, writing about him in a book.
If he was running a doping program for Wiggins, then Wiggins sure is rubbing our faces in it with statements like that. Maybe Wiggins learned even more from Lance than previously surmised.
if leinders didn't dope wiggins, why is wiggins deliberately lying for him? a statement like "he completely shares our thoughts on clean cycling" is an obvious lie, something wiggins cannot possibly have believed for real.
he could have said something like "i've hardly worked with the guy".
or "we at team sky strongly believe in clean cycling, so when it turned out that leinders had been involved in doping at rabo, it was only logical that we fired his ***".
instead wiggins sets out to defend the guy.
i cannot be sure of course, but i think leinders did play a role in wiggins doping scheme, otherwise i don't see why wiggo should come up with statements like these.
