Football is absolutely going to have a 90s cycling tier doping reveal at some point and people are definitely going to give a poo poo about it when it does.

In a cleaner sport I'd expect Slovenes to dominate. They're just built different. Just look at Luka Doncic being the best player in the NBA and Goran Dragic carving up the Bucks

He said some lousy poo poo to Cory Williams earlier this year, and I’d bet a lot of money the team told him if he did it again there’d be some problems.

I know Cory's older bro Justin IRL and he's a super nice dude, but did this guy say something other than "you aren't fast enough" or whatever? I think more of the problem is he's a square peg for a round hole as a crit racer in a USA development program that develops climbers and TTers pretty much exclusively. They'd probably have both been better off racing kermesses for a couple years instead of doing the lovely USA pro circuit and crits

Yeah I dunno, Eric Marcotte was a dentist, didn't go pro until his late 20s and won the USA road race at 34. Then there is Roglic of course. Talent shines through. Those development programs burn out as many promising racers as they produce.

Next time you're chillin' with your pals the Williams brothers, tell them that Cory didn't make it on to the national team because he just wasn't good enough. Let us know how that works out. Saying "talent shines through" is ignorant of how the world works.

Yeah he really missed out on a middling career as a domestique before retiring in his mid 20s to become a gravel racer like all the dross USA cycling turns out these days

I’m not caught up on emoji usages — has the progressive half of the Internet opted to stop using the ok sign because of white power people coopting it?

It was a 4chan prank on the media and instead of admitting they got pranked they just started saying everyone doing the sign is a nazi

Kind of. It's just a bit out there to win a grand tour with covid. So I'm rolling it around my head is he on PEDs (outside the regular reasons to think he is, Ineos/professional cyclist), Did he not contract it until it was over? Was he asymptomatic? Was he just that much better than his competition this year?

Poggy might be on some secret Slovenian power juice but he’s shown himself to be a special talent and not a former wasteman suddenly dropping world class climbers whilst in zone 1 because of “marginal gains”.

Too many years watching new japan wrestling and figuring out start times means I'm fairly sure it's a 3am BST start, but either way I'll be up at 7ish so I'll see the fun bits

e: for reference the opening ceremony started at 12 noon here, and was at 8pm in japan

Well the pic says it starts at 2:15 am pacific which is 10:15 am in england idk maybe its wrong
