They've also lost a bunch of riders that had options too so will probably be even more bad. Rumours they are going to try and sign aru which i think is a terrible idea, no way can they compete for GT's.

They should just call up a bunch of Cat 1 riders from Africa and see what happens.

Theres literally no downside to that and massive marketing appeal.

If you can get Aru for cheap it isn't crazy, just as a high upside signing in case he manages to find his form again.

DCRainmaker's take

"Well, the definition of ‘now’ is probably important here. After all, nobody knew about this in public until Caley’s article. According to Zwift though, Caley was in turn tipped off to the details by someone in the Zwift community (probably another racer). But also according to Zwift, the details of these have apparently been published for a while."


Fun fact: I am (probably another racer)

Another fun fact: There is virtual sock height enforcement in the Pro-Am invitational Zwift races.

One of the riders in question has now openly admitted that the 2nd file was doctored by a 'friend who didn't know the severity of merging files'.

Should have taken the 1 race DQ because now you're never going to lose the stigma of cheating.

Yeah ignorance being used as an excuse. I don't know how "Can you help recover the file?" turns into her friend taking the Zwift file and punching it through fitfiletools.com with a 1% multiplier. Ultimately the responsibility is hers to provide the data as requested.

He looks good. I am glad for him. Plastic surgeons can do some pretty amazing things if they're given enough to work with.

He's still waiting for the implanted/grafted jaw they built him to heal up enough that they can screw some teeth into it, and for his pelvis to heal properly from the bone harvesting.

I don't imagine he's getting passed some PED as he's walking to doping control and they literally watch you get your cock out to piss so I imagine it's something innocuous but it sure looks shady as hell even if it's just his phone or something

I mean, what could they possibly be handing him that would make a difference related to doping control? It’s obviously something very small so they can’t be handing him a bag of piss. Can’t imagine they’d have any sort of masking agent that would somehow work that fast that they wouldn’t have already gave him at literally any point before he’s walking in to piss.

Wasn’t it Hamilton who said there was a powder you could have on your fingers that would contaminate the sample to render it untestable? Maybe something you’d want to keep dry and not in a plastic baggy. Like I’m sure there’s some such agent that could gently caress with testing, but impossible to speculate from just that video. Can’t wait for the jar of sugar explanation though.

IIRC, the anecdote said just a bit was necessary to destroy the sample.
And it didn't go into this level of detail, but I think you could just do that maneuver when pulling your hog out of your bib, Rudy style.

Maybe, but in a team like that you're not carrying any deadweight for name value so they must think he can do some kind of job. Doesn't matter if he's cheap if he's toast and eating up a slot that could be filled by a rider that would actually do something for the team.
