yup but in football these were individual cases, I can't recall any scandal involving such a high profile official who would steal and abuse for years. imagine some country's national coach stealing and raping his players - how long do you think he could get away with something like this? here it's been going on for years... and if it wasn't for the recent turmoil with major sponsor pulling out (which I bet had lots to do with the scandal) this stuff wouldn't even surface.

I agree it has a lot in common with the #metoo scandal, esp since it appears as if both the Polish Federation and the whole Hollywood knew and approved.

What do you think about the new Sky kit? In my opinion they should've stayed with 2017s design. It's something about the white and the blue band over the chest that just feels a bit dated.


I actually like it a lot better than last year's. It's like an updated version of their old Adidas kit (2010-2012). I still think white as a main jersey color is a disservice to racing though, it takes away from the White Jersey and national champs..

They should try a different colour, I really liked the green Sky logo for the Rainforest charity during the 2011 Tour.

I was never a big fan of the black but I quite like this new colour combo!

Do we think they will swap to a black version for the 2018 Tour?

On that, I have a feeling that all (WT) teams are allowed one swap per year. I know Sky did it for the Tour, and I think Lotto Soudal have been doing the same for Paris Nice (Lotto Fix All) - which I really liked their kit and bike colourways.

Do any of the other teams bother and if so, where?

I was listening to the Velonews podcast today and supposedly Froome will ride the Giro and attempt the double:

Maybe his rivals will then skip the Giro and hope that Froome is too tired for the Tour.

If he has no rivals in the Giro surely he'd be less fatigued...

IIRC he barely raced before the tour this year. I cant see him winning them both next year but am glad he's giving it a go, looking forward to watching the Giro in particular!

Is Froome then going for Giro/TdF/Vuelta ??? That would be awesome!

I suppose however Giro/TdF only.
Ok if he feels that good after the TdF then the Vuelta. In that case that would really be something BIG!

I remember stories about how Froome was not really trying for the double last year. This all could be the same kind of fakery, I mean PR, to get a reaction out of the media and other teams.

Of course he will do the Giro-Tour double with ease just like he did the Tour-Vuelta this year without any contention. He is literally not from this planet.
