Damiano Cunego has to be one of the most stark examples of what happens when you dope and what happens when you stop.

I think Pierre Roland and Thibaut Pinot are two young guys who can excel in the mountains on their day but appear to be very much human.

Boardman.
LeMond.
Cavendish.
Voeckler.
Spartacus.
T. Martin.
Griepel.
Wiggins.
Evans.

Think the young guns who are good these days realise the wont get away with it, hopefully, and stay off it. Also specialists (Sprinters, TT) these days I think are pretty clean.

Evans has some questionable ties to a dirty doctor so I won't include him on the list for myself.

Gilbert
EBH

You list Gilbert despite his stunning performance when Jose Ibarguren Taus was his doctor?

I can't say anyone is/was clean.

Even I was microdosing on my ride home from work yesterday, of course that was because I forgot to refill my water bottle so I had to ration it out. :noidea:

Chavanel

Hesjdal

Artray: Why not just update your original post with the names as they are posted, and then mark them if they get caught. You'll need to be active with this though.


Hesjedal?

100% of the peloton must be clean if he is and that would explain why he's now able to win big things

I don't get how a decent rider can turn into a GT winner but considering Garmin ability to turn a gregario in GT outsider I'm not surprised

VDV, Hesjedal, Danielson,

Sastre quotes are quite funny

This is like the "Mancebo is clean because he puts his pain face on and bend his head the whole time"

^My thoughts exactly. There's a difference between (legitimately) thinking someone's clean and hoping a certain rider doesn't dope.
