Anyone else been following this sh*t show?  The stuff about Freeman ordering the Testogel for Sutton to cure his ED is comical.  For a group that portrays themselves to being the absolute best of the best when it comes to preparation and training, they sure screw up a lot.  Jiffy bags, lost laptops, mistaken orders for doping products (whoops!.)

Here is what I just don't get.  Why don't they just freakin' admit that British Cycling and Sky ran an extremely advanced doping program that propelled their track squad to absolute domination in the Olympics, set off Wiggins' career and ultimately lead to however many grand tour wins Sky/Ineos have racked up so far?  What's in it for them at this point?

Definitely a $4it show....Freeman not being mentally well enough to attend the trial, Sutton storming off, etc.

INEOS has said that they don’t care about the past, it is not on them....so yeah, it could behoove them to just say “wasn’t our team and we won’t run it that way anymore”.

Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Not paying too much attention to the details. It may take a while but it will have a predictable end. Every Ole Games leads to doping innovation for host country. It's a predictable pattern spanning over three decades now. London was no exception.

More interesting to see where Ketones story will lead. Interesting that a Brit was leading it. More interesting that it started as a DARPA funded "metabolic dominance " project to fuel US soldiers in Afghan war. Will WADA continue to cast it as just a food supplement (no blood no needles no pills) or will they start looking at it as performance enhancing. Certainly teams that are linked to it or are talking open about it win lots it seems.

16 months later - Freeman's banned. Most interesting - David Brailsford knew nothing about this, despite being the most involved team head ever who can swear up and down that he had such intimate knowledge of all that happened at Sky/Ineos that he KNEW for sure that his riders were squeaky clean.

Marginal gains... um, ok. Let's go with that.

Everyone knows if you pay enough attention to those marginal gains, you can take a track pursuiter and make a TDF winner out of him. (Both are endurance events. Just a small change of venue. Oh, and the grades get much easier; in fact near flat. None of the 40% nonsense of the velodrome.)

Shoe drop for sure. Brailsford is such a POS. Or just doing what almost everyone else is doing?

Whatever else it is between Aderlass recent verdict and this one it is refreshing to see emphasis on the docs for a change.
