I've read it described as a last resort treatment for serious asthma conditions (injecting triamcinolone). The idea that someone is such a state can take part in the Tour De France is fanciful so at best it must have been a sledgehammer to smash a nut, with the convenient side effect of it being a highly effective performance enhancer. Basically, he and his team are cheating cunts, abusing the system as far as they thought they could to gain an artificial performance increase. I wonder how long he'll keep his knighthood.

Belgium's Bradley Wiggins and Somalia's Mo Farrah looking more than a bit dodgy.

For what purpose though Bradley?

Quote:
Sir Bradley Wiggins says he "100%" did not cheat and claims he is the victim of an attempt to "smear" him.
This is going to go full Lance Armstrong. Which chat show will Bradley fess up on though?

blatant cheats. british cycling has been propped up with money for years and this is the result.

I've just read this fascinating article on the BBC about how Sky control Chris Froome's energy intake and output to almost F1 levels of detail.

It's too long to C&P with all the graphics but well worth a read if you have a few minutes.

Froome is going to get dogs abuse this year after the case being dropped by the UCI and WADA but without any real details as to why.

That's pretty cool actually. Anyone who's bonked on a bike or indeed running knows how fine the margins are and how horrendous it is if you get it badly wrong.

Really? All seems very straightforward to me. The urine sampling methodology was absolute fucking nonsense, and the reading he got was entirely possible with legal use.

Same thing completely fucked over Petacchi, who now finally feels vindicated thanks to this.
