It wasn't hard to figure since Carapaz had no problem sticking when they gave it the beans, but was constantly looking like he was in extreme pain.

Did you watch the same bike-race as I did? Because even the hosts were talking about it.
If you understand Danish, I can probably put the recording of it somewhere.

They're just a bit confused because doping works on the 4 year Olympic cycle.

We had not left it yet, but when I would wake in the night, I would lie, listening, homesick for it already.



Managed to avoid the result until now and watched the last 40k. Lmao carapaz, was so obvious he was faking and I'm glad vingegard beat him. Ride of the day for me was gaudu, thought he was going to abandon on ventoux but plugged away to be the best of the rest.

Also bring back orla

It's not the tour without a police raid. Maybe the police were annoyed they weren't uploading to Strava?

As a follow-up to that tweet, the French prosecutor has now said it's a preliminary investigation into doping allegations - although I don't know how much stock to put in that, as it's apparently the very same prosecutor who did exactly the same last year with another team (I forget who), and absolutely nothing but a few columnist articles came out of that.

Doping is a criminal offence is France. Also the substances involves are often controlled

Eg festina was uncovered as the team were smuggling stuff across the border iirc.

It seems like most of the effective anti doping initiatives (in cycling at least) have come about thanks to the police

this (the idea that it was harder for French teams to dope because it was a police matter) was why for a while you had the whole "deux vitesses" meme and French teams were absolute garbage from like the late 90s to the early 2010s at least.

it's actually sad to see how bad the French teams like Credit Agricole are in like the 2007 Tour. Christoph Moreau :france:

Iím guessing itís a criminal offense in almost every country as the drugs are almost always controlled substances being used outside of their designed usage

It's like a specific statute that criminalises WADC violations. So I assume would cover even OTC stuff that's prohibited by WADA.
