Great interview with one of the recently caught blood doping skiers, explaining how to beat the blood passport. The trick is taking out the blood again after the race. Reminded me of Froomes giro victory last year. Only one stage absolute other worldly performance.

The long reign of terror continues: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cycling/47608625

quote:

Team Sky are set to announce a new sponsor - owned by Britain's richest man Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

The broadcaster said in December that it would end its decade-long commitment at the end of 2019, during which time Team Sky have won eight Grand Tours.

The team will be renamed Team Ineos - after the chemicals giant that billionaire Ratcliffe owns.

Ratcliffe is worth £21bn and has been in talks with Team Sky principal Dave Brailsford for several weeks.

Team Sky was launched in January 2010 and has since amassed 327 victories, including those eight Grand Tour triumphs.

Current riders Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas have won five Tours de France between them, and Welshman Thomas signed a new three-year deal in September after winning his first Tour last July.

Ineos is Britain's largest privately owned company and in 2018 posted annual pre-tax profits of £2bn.

Ratcliffe has already invested £110m in Ben Ainslie's Americas Cup team.

Are those the grand depart stages for 2020 (or whenever Nice was supposed to be the starting city again)? Quite unorthodox, if so.

Kinda hard to make out from the aerial view. So the Bigla rider rode up onto a driveway, then hit a rock or something causing her to endo. Bike goes flying and slides into Borghini and washes her out.
