Who's surprised? I've a friend who's big into cycling - can't really understand the love, personally - and he was saying (ages back - not as a result of this) that he'd be surprised if they weren't doping. it's just endemic.

I don't think it's as much of a conspiracy as you're suggesting. I just think the culture of competitive cycling (right from the start - they were on amphetamines from the very beginnings of the tour de france, etc.) and the pressure to win breeds that sort of cheating. better funding evidently gets better cheating.

If i was Wiggins i'd take loads of drugs as well, I mean his world seems a terrible place to live. It doesn't seem to make him very happy. He's like Paul Weller's miserable kid brother... Besides cyclists have the same charm as BMW drivers.... Bet Harry had a BM...

Cycle quite a lot myself to work and for fun. Back in the day they were doing the tour with a 40/42KM/hour average over 3 - 3500KM over a three week period and lets not forget the elevation aint gonna do that just on noodles.

Did Wiggins take something probably yes but cycling is itself to blame with these TUE´s that let people take medication for certain things such as Ashtma. The same with Froome two times the limit for Subutimol and he is trying to squeeze his way out, others with less have been suspended as should Froome be but úntil the UCI pulls its finger out of its backside probably wont happen.

Using an advantage has always taken place back in the Tour de France in the early 1900´s you would get a couple of riders riding together stop for a meal, one would get the other bladdered then bugger off alone one competitor less, one even took the train to just outside of Paris.

Regardless of EPO, TUE´s Blood Doping etc. a certain talent is needed to do what the great´s did or still do all these things do is give them an edge.

People like Floyd Landis grip my shit once chance at glory wchich he fucked up because one day he was dying and the next flew away from everybody with a Testosterone Plaster stuck on his bollocks. People like this are no better than your Wiggins and Froomes but try to put others in a worse light despite others not having been tested positive but bending the laws through the use of TUE´s.

..........hope i haven't upset you as well Swampy. Some of Rants right leaning lot are way more sensitive than they like to let on.

...you have absolutely no basis for making such an assertion, which I frankly find offensive. I thought we had put such crap behind us Laz. I expect an apology.

:))

Laz: read, take note:

Ed: "...given I've put 14 years into this I'm not about to allow the community to be overtaken by the kind of offensive crap, misinformation, and trolling that has ruined Facebook, Twitter and the rest of the internet"

You were being serious......? There was me thinking you were being humorous, a parody of me talking about sensitivity. So what assertion do you believe I made? Since we're being serious and talking about the Ed.......

I'll copy this and post it in off topic.




Well......?

I said right leaning....... Are your feelings hurt again? Your like a wee girl. Stand up and defend yourself if you think 'your' being bullied. Do you think your right leaning, is that why your whining again?

As for trolling... am i not allowed discus what is happening with 'our' team? Is there not a Pogba problem? Is there not a Jose problem? Just because i'm not as happy as you doesn't make me wrong and you right. (i mean correct).......

As for Zebs.... are you offended on his behalf as well? Why do you keep bringing up something that doesn't involve you, was apologised for and that apology was accepted by the offended party?

I don't get it, if your beliefs and politics are Tory, GOP, right leaning, right wing or alt right then what's the problem if someone says that's what they see in you? Why be defensive about it? What's wrong with 'labelling' people right wing?

I'm a 'left' leaning person and proud of it.
