British crew will be clean, and now we're flourishing in the sport. One of the few things we're good at now that the dutch are better than us at darts.
Yanks still haven't bagged Armstrong for old crimes .. be interesting to see what they've got on him.
Simon, if you believe they've cleaned up cycling you may as well believe that the moon is made of fudge and Noel Edmonds is popular. They've been bang on it for years. And I say that as someone who followed the Tour for donkeys. And who could blame them? You wouldn't drive over some of the hills they've to cycle over. Mad man's sport and only achieveable by injecting monkey's blood or being off your tits on a concoction of head-melting drugs that even Stefano would turn his nose up at.
Except for Merckx and Indurain of course. They were clean.
I agree they've been bang on it for years, and yep, you won't fully stop things .... but its a world away from a few years back.
The English guys will be clean and insist their team is ... as Team Sky has blown everyone apart this year, its safe to say there's limited narcs in the rest of the chasing pack. They may need to dope up to catch up though.
The anti doping rules for using over the counter medication is stupid though.
Great win by Cav yesterday, like a bolt of lightening at the end. If he wins on the Champs and Wiggins takes the TT today it'll be some all round british record.
Roche Jnr has been doing well for the irish too - hope he comes on leaps & bounds next year.
