I've smelled more pleasant ten day old left over fish than this.

My BS detector is going off on the whole Postal, er, Sky thing.

Seriously, Dale!

Why would they lie?

You're such a Grinch this Holiday Season...

Seriously - I think they are all full of $hit.

Watching these "unbelievable" feats, are not enjoyable as a spectator. When a rider makes a brave mountain attack, and is swallowed up by someone spinning at 100 rpm, it's like watching professional wrestling.

I keep thinking that Sky's claim of unprecedented transparency, being the cleanest team in the ranks and making their hay on marginal gains sounds a lot like lighter, stronger ans cheaper.

And along those lines - JIffy bags are the English equivalent of Ziploc bags, yes? Transparent, yes? I trust it was new and therefore, very clean. And inside the bag was a visible box labeled Fluimucil. The marginal gains? Did anyone look inside the box?

I'm all for shaming the cheaters.
But, once again, we wonder, what is the solution?

More interesting stuff re: Cope in regard to his duties. This by a respected rider.

The whole situation reminds me of the cheer used by Fishbone, "U-G-L-Y, you ain't got no alibi!"

The most recent Cycling News podcast was very interesting....discussed Brailsford and Sutton's time in front of Parliament. Not pretty....

The Postal / Sky comparisons are becoming more and more apt every day.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

The Postal/Sky comparison started with the Froome Bradzilla story to explain his sudden GT ascendance way back when. Things are now coming fully into focus. All good things take time.
