    They have found something, maybe not banned substances, but something. Thomas was not even breathing hard after stage 10, it's not natural. But I wouldn't trust the stolen (leaked) data, or anything...

    For the same reason so few athletes from the US have dominated cycling, there's no money in it.

    I don't see what the hotels would be losing. It's not as though those rooms would go empty. Sky should not be allowed to use RV's that other teams may not be able to afford, but it's much worse if...

    Maybe. But I'm disappointed in Valverde and Quintana who seem to be in pretty good form but are not being aggressive enough to make it a race up to this point. Then there is TJVG, I don't expect...

    Yes, he and Sagan are the only reason to watch. He tried the Giro/Tour double in 2011 and ended up in 5th, but he did manage to overcome a huge deficit at the 2012 Vuelta with a single attack that no...

    That's a little, maybe a lot, misleading. It depends on what that pound of muscle is doing and what it has been doing for the past 48 hrs. It also ignores the effect of body composition on metabolism...

    It sounds like what you are doing is working which is good, and you enjoy it which is even better. So I was only pointing out that it may be better not to fix it if it's not broken.

    They spent much of it on Sagan, and he's well worth what ever they are paying him in my opinion. But maybe they should have invested in a few more climbing specialists. Considering they won 2 jerseys...

    LeMond is right, they are likely to collectively attack Froome. That's the downside of having a lead like that so early. I'd expect to see Contador, Valverde and others work together just as they...
