A great win for Jolly Naughty Wiggins, now onto the hour record some time next year apparently.

I think he may retire from road racing at some point soon, although he may want one more crack at Roubaix. he seems to change his mind in his public statements very often!

Roubaix might well be his last road race. His programme is all about the spring then it's off to the track. He has to find a way to wear the rainbow jersey at some point though. Got my invite to the TdF route presentation today! Next season is almost here!

I bet there's some decent hills to give Pinot a fair crack.

Saw an interview on road.cc post the Worlds TT.  He had a few well aimed clever digs at the Kenyan.

The Belgian had a dig at the Kenyan? For being a better stage race rider than him?

Mr Crofts has a real downer on Froome, check back through this thread for evidence.
I have a feeling (just a hunch) that he doesn't believe Froome is racing entirely legally.

Well obviously Contador.  I don't think Froome is still on the juice, but like many others think he probably was for a time.

Anyway, this thread was meant for our own cycling exploits rather than discussing the merits of EPO which apparently you can still buy over the counter in Switzerland.

Reviving this as a massive doping scandal has just broken. The Padua investigations have exposed at least 38 world tour riders still working with Dr Ferrari. He was Lance Armstrong dr and is banned for life from working in cycling. Astana (Nibalis team) are up to their necks in it. This is very big news in cycling at the moment. Back to the old days I fear.
