OK Doc, according to your last mail, they are all as guilty as sin including Cunego. At least that's what I decipher from you last post.

Perhaps you can elucidate who is actually clean? Because if you don't your argument becomes circular and the guys who you consider dopers are obviously the same people who would win anyway. So, rumours (your choice of wording) are true then?

Moving the logic on a step further Riis, Pantani, Rasmussen, Contadoper, etc.etc. have no talent and only got the results through doping. Let's now also add in Lance as well and you have a 'full house'.

Maybe the true winner was a 4th cat winning a 'fish and chipper' in the Surrey League in the UK because he was cheated in not being able to take on the big boys and unleash his obvious talent.

Why don't we just ban everyone and stick our heads up our arses. Nobody's saying doping's right, but let's get a grip on reality and realise that the people you diss are way better athletes than anyone here. No amount of drugs would have made me any good as a bike rider; but add just about everyone else on the list.

Tell me who's won a legitimate TdF that you definitely know of? You can;'t because you don't know, but let's screw them anyway because they know someone who did. Rough justice!

Apart from any doping issues...

What interests me is: Will the astana's be in top shape in the Giro?


Actually at a convention in Vegas this week so wanted to run down and put a bet on Kloden, figuring that with the late notice the odds on him would be pretty long...the bookies out here (and I confirmed at Unibet.com) are picking him to win it...

There were other "non positive" riders in Giro 2007. One is Piepoli, and the other is Iban Mayo. Mayo is suspended for 2 years for EPO, but Piepoli is not.

I bid that Leonardo is not going to do a great Giro, the whole Saunier team is doing a very bad season, and i don´t know the reason :lol:

And i agree, this is a very funny thread :lol:

But what is most amazing, is the fantastic stories the fanboys accept outright, and the "innocent until proven guilty" lines...

Sure, I'll watch a few stages of the Giro near parts of Italy my family is from, but I won't admit to friends I still watch pro cycling, I'll tell them it was topless female wrestling instead.


A, I don't accept things outright but I do generally accept Lab results unless someone comes with proof the Lab screwed up and I totally understand why guys who are innocent don't have a damn clue where the dope came from and look for answers... It's the guys with one quick answer they stick with that scare me... And yeah I'll say I'm a fan, but if I'm a boy, you're a boy....


2,
I absolutely love that you needed to specify female.



and D, everyone please take this opportunity to laugh as Doc and I are...

They seem to be having a bit of trouble staying on their bikes this year.

Connect the lines from US Postal/Discovery/Astana to the majority of riders caught doping in the last decade and you see a nice wheel design with Johan Bruyneel as the 'Chris King' hub. That's the rear hub, the front hub is Riis.



Have to admit this is at least very funny.

I think it is far game for cycling fans to question any unusual patterns and trends in riders results. Cunego's form in 2004 was truly exceptional and he has not repeated any similar performaces since. The way he held off the peloton on the stage to Terenten was very impressive. Similarly his TT effort in the second TT in the 2006 TDF was also unusual, he put some time into Fothen and other Time Trialists on a not so tricky course.

Cunego's results seem to have smoothed out in 2007/8 and show he is an exceptional one day hilly rider but not necessarily the outstanding stage race rider he was in 2004.
