how do they strip two races based on 1 abnormal result ? and menchov only loses TDF results?
or was the JTL biopassport 1 abnormal value story a bit of bullshit ?
because that was the timeline right … JTL evalled by Garmin n Sky prior to abnormal result, signed by Sky. Then tested 2-3 more times allowing biopassport to then establish baseline which flags the first result ?
totally befuddled by this transparency

It will certainly be one of the first to be inked into our race programme for 2015!

Brilliant. Fans are going to love trying to get these roadside or from riders.
After too much coffee and – appropriately enough – a Belgian bun, I rattle though some choice morsels in episode 5 of the eternally delayed and somewhat infrequent Chasing Wheels podcast.
- Paris-Roubaix, why will no one let me bet on Manuel Quinziato?
- Speaking of betting, thank you Mr Alex Kristof for winning Milan-San Remo. Proof that if you pay attention you can place a good bet on cycling…
The latest in the economic rollercoaster that is Welcome to Yorkshire’s ambitious Grand Depart is that they might have under-estimated an important tender resulting in a £2.3m shortfall.
I don’t think this is the first or last time the project will find that their hopes are matched by the expectations of reality.
A while back, I did some scribbling of numbers of rooms given accommodation was the…
So, according to VeloNews, what cycling needs is more races in shrinking markets with shrinking capital investment, not new races in growing markets with growing capital investment:
“With cycling pinched by recession across much of Europe, coupled with a growing fixation to “internationalize” cycling by shoehorning the sport into untapped markets, this weekend’s Italian romp should serve as a…
