Just saw the cycling hub video, did he crash? Or was it just a cover-up? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYDvlkZq61c

Aliens exist! I don't believe they visited/are watching us, but we can't be alone in the whole universe. Now move this to chat :)

One of these two riders is in desperate need for attention and would do anything for it.
The other one has a job.

I will say, that he looks remarkably good for someone who crashed at more than 50 km/h, but I don't know.

I couldn't watch that video long enough to get to the Chris Froome part but I did catch that my predictions for Lizzy Diamond proved correct. You're all forgiven.

Provided that I haven't watched that beautiful video, so maybe some of this will have been answered by the tinfoil-hatted people..

- what exactly does crashing achieve? If he was to be sanctioned, wouldn't he be anyway now?
- even if there's a good reason to not partecipate to the TdF to cover up stuff, couldn't they just claim he had some kind of virus, without having to pretend a horrific crash had happened?

Of course! Don't ask logical questions for which there are no answers! :-)

Cyclingtips covered this in their podcast yesterday.

Four ads on that video. Not worth anyone's time!

I think the whole idea is that the UCI is in on it.

Personally, I hadn't given this a thought, but after watching Icarus, and learning about the Armstrong case, I guess nothing could shock me anymore.

Dan Martin was behind when Chris crashed and saw the whole thing.

If the UCI were in on it you wouldn't need to crash to cover anything up. You'd just cover it up quietly like a normal person...

Yea I guess it's a little elaborate to fake a crash leaving him unable to even walk for God knows how long.
