Lotto-NL rose form the ashes of the Rabobank team.....they were first known as Team Blanco asthey raced with Rabo money after they pulled out of the contract early....and yes, they positioned the new team as a "clean" team. They then became Belkin before Lott-NL.

As to why they apparently continue to adhere to their "clean team" representation i contrast to SKY and their continued pushing of legal / ethical boundaries...

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

"Froome’s kidneys misfired" Oh this is rich, it's going to rank up there with "the dope is for my mother-in-law."

So Sky, with their huge budget, is claiming they can't even keep the points of their prime rider's kidneys properly gapped?

On a serious note: I got to experience chemicals housed in my liver for decades coursing through my bloodstream. Not fun. (But is was not an accident. I went on a liver cleansing regime to purge it of those chemicals; precursors of polyester resin carried through my skin by acetone and other boatbuilding goodies that had been causing me weird 'allergies" for 30 years. I was warned before i started that I might well see chemo-like effects.)

Does anyone see a similarity to a Tour winning day by a certain Floyd Landis a few years ago? A very bad day followed by a Tour/Vuelta winning good day. Kinda makes you think "hmmmm ...". (Though in a way, I feel the opponents of Landis got what they deserved. It did not take rocket science to see that Piero's team, CSC and T-Mobile needed to do a team time trial for the 20 miles of flat before the final climb. I was sitting at a cafe big screen telling my tablemate just that as Landis was pulling away on the two long hills before those flats; that each of those three DS's needed to be radioing their teams and telling them just that. And practically yelling at those three DS's when their riders would go hard, take minutes out of Landis' lead, then sit up and everyone would slow again. Yes Piero's team was weak but the other two had no excuse.)

I just remembered the Tyler Hamilton vanishing twin. The misfiring kidneys?

If that is true, Moscon is a bigger douche-canoe than we thought....

Moscon has always struck me as dirty as hell, both in terms of his blatant racism as well as his riding being a bit too good.

Update me. Where is Froome's case at now?
Will this drag on for months and years?

No change at this time...still trying to figure out his strategy to prove he didn’t exceed the limit.

No way this is settled before July, IMO...at high point I will have zero interest in watching the Tour.

I'd like to see the Tour decline to allow him to start. Just say that it would be bad for their image. Normally UCI would go into an uproar, led by the president, but that happening looks much less likely than a year ago with Cookson. (Sky screwed up big time. You don't pull this stunt when your favorite son is about to step out of the office.)

The Tour has lost almost all appeal for me - the Classics, Giro and Vuelta are all much more entertaining.
