It’s lovely to know he sets boundaries. I wonder if he ever considered the astonishing and novel concept of honesty and fair play - no doping at all, either mechanical or chemical - and the reputation of the sport of cycling which he professes to love?
He'll be the perfect age to win the Vuelta as clean as Chris Horner.
I read that article and I think I now know the identity of blazed.
I’d love to see a team sponsored by dog ice cream though. That’s a rep kit I’d wear.
Ice cream for Froome Dogs?
LottoNL-Jumbo kicks out three riders caught using sleeping pills on a training camp...
The piece says the product used has not been identified but according to Daniel Friebe on the Cycling Podcast, it's Stilnox, which is the same stuff Cofidis riders were snorting for fun back in the day.
Antwan "I don't do interviews" Tolhoek is clearly a prize dick.
Apparently, Lobato has been sacked from the team. The other two have been 'expelled indefinitely' which suggests they will probably be allowed back in when the team feel they've learned their lesson. Worth noting that Stilnox is not a controlled/banned substance so there is no reason for the UCI to get involved, but it's good to see a team taking action against its own riders for breaking internal team rules - and adopting a very firm (and public) stance on riders taking substances not approved by the team as a general principle.
Interesting piece on “consumer” attitudes to doping.
Essentially we don’t care (well less than sponsors) and the more interested we are in sport the less we care. We also tend to view it as a rotten furriner thing. (pretty evident from the reaction to Froome on this forum).
Disappointingly, several cyclists passed the clean rider test at the Vuelta a Costa Rica...
Not just the family it seems. Real old school doping.
It's still fecked
More on the same subject, making the point that it was down to a police investigation and no positive tests were triggered.
