What I thought - just innuendo. He got into an early break that stayed out and sat on wheels all day, while back in the peleton, the gc contenders were playing tactics. Nothing gets past your keen powers of observation does it.
A guy has one great day over the course of 10? tours after working on his climbing for a couple of seasons, and despite the obviously negative test, and the unusual circumstances on the stage, you're out pointing accusatory fingers. Take your little witch-hunt elsewhere.
In search of what to search for.
