- 2013 TDF Winner. A retrospecive thread, so whos going to win?
Junkyard , sorry Indeed allegations . I’d love to see the Contador ride totally clean as I’m sure he did in the Vuelta as he is magnificent and by far and away the best rider in the peloton. I have no doubt Team Sky are a clean living team but just how far do you take It . Its only really folks like Taylor Phinney that take being clean to the extreme.Linky.Posted 5 years ago
Contador is by far the most entertaining rider of the last 5 years despite the allegations.
They said that about Pantani, and I even made a similar comment about Landis’ exploit in 2006 😳

Its not an allegation it is a proven fact
0.000000000000000000000001g of Clenbuterol….
From Wiki: “Not just athletes are affected by contamination. In Portugal, 50 people were reported as affected by clenbuterol in liver and pork between 1998 and 2002, while in 1990, veal liver was suspected of causing clenbuterol poisoning in 22 people in France and 135 people in Spain.”
I’m not saying he hasn’t used it but the dose was very low. With or without it I think he’ll tear everyones legs off.Posted 5 years agolangyMember
Bertie – if the team is right. Sky has more strength in depth I feel (see how it goes in a few weeks down here at TDU as to if that is right or not) and could make it hard for him. Likewise, I think RSNT or whatever they are this year, could make it hard due to a team effort.
Schleck and Froome to complete podium.
Cadel and Wiggo, alas, I don’t think can get there; too many out and out climbs this tour. top 10 or 20 for those two. Be interesting if they go to Giro or Vuelta though…Posted 5 years agoseftonSubscriber
contador (if he can get the support)
I reckon the whole thing was a setup (to save cycling from lance – they have known about lance for years. waiting for the right time i think)
contador ban (for tiny tiny amount of ban substance)Posted 5 years ago
tour route timetrial heavy
clean sky win
lance striped but alls well as that was ‘the old days’ todays winner is drug free. cycling saved!davefarmerMember
Sefton, you are right on all counts.
Giro has loads of TT this year. Padua investigation is happening, will “exposé” Scarponi etc. and Wiggo will win Giro…. Cycling saved in Italy.
Following year, investigation in Spain completes, lets see how much TT will be in the 2014 Vuelta:)Posted 5 years agoKryton57Subscriber
Contador and Schleck in epic mountain battles for me. I think Wiggo and Froome will get close courtesy of the TT’s and Sky will try to keep them in contention with regards to time gained, but its not Wiggo’s territory. My view is Wiggo should ride to win the Giro an Froome should lead the Tour – he had TT ammo and is a better climber than Brad.Posted 5 years ago
