If people think Froome's comeback is due to better dope then wasn't Yate's glorious first two weeks due to dope?

Heads up on Tiz cycling. The live feed url seems to work at:

Floyd is back! Procycling turns into a very bad joke.

I dislike Froome for all the usual reasons. But I also love Froome b/c of the way he races: running with the bike, gaining time with reckless descents...now this.

Then again, I still love Floyd's ride...PEDs or not.

Why is it a bad joke? would you prefer Dumoulin in Pink? (the same Dumoulin who also admits to using Salbutamol? - https://www.nrc.nl/nieuws/2018/04/05/ba ... t-a1598343)

Well you have missread something there. He said he used it but quit because it wasn't working. He would use it again if it was necessary. The main problem here is the fact that Froome had way too much.

Thought about Floyd as well. One of the biggest come backs in a grand tour (and one of the biggest melt downs by Yates).

Really don´t get how Dumo and his group could't close Froome for 80 km.

How many Salbutamol puffs did Froome do this morning.....

IMHO. if it was 1v1 , maybe DML would have closed more.... but when u have FDJ pulling through, was reichenbach pulling harder than a solo froome? was pinot? Certainly didn't appear so, and the time kinda reflects that.

That was a cool image when froome was IAB riding and DML was heading the train on his IAB too

Didn't TD have a better time up the final climb? Just not willing to tow the younglings all the way to the finish line gave Froome a big gap.
Brilliant performance by Froome, but supernatural like Floyd - I think not. Relax.

First thing that came to mind was Landis
Sad for pro cycling
