The doping talk thread

With a GT over and doping talk residing in a two day old post race thread I thought it may be better to centralize it here. Obviously dope talk can be pretty boring yet somewhat enticing as...

Did we mall miss this? I'm looking back at the PdC posts from around the time this year's Giro Lombardia route was announced(Sep. 21) and can't seem to see a reference. It was right during WC week anyway. Looks like a pretty radical route change for this year and seeing the race is only 3 days away it's about time I realize this! via. http://www.gazzetta.it/Speciali/GiroLombardia/2010/it/percorso_2011.shtml

Final chance for Froome to win back some time, but the bigger battle will likely be for the mountains jersey and stage.

SPG Stage 19

The Vuelta heads into Eusky land for the first time in a long time. Once again punchy, maybe the best chance for Froome to give it a last go?

But seriously, this race has been incredibly hard, too hard in fact. I remember riding this race back in 2005 and people where here training for the Worlds and there would be nine or ten sprint stages up for grabs. Maybe one or two guys would go up the road and you’d catch them before the finish. Now everyone wants to be in the break and the starts are uphill. Things are going in the wrong direction.

http://www.cyclingnews.com/blogs/heinrich-haussler/vuelta-hardest-grand-tour-ive-ever-done Seriously GHH?? Wrong direction??? That sure seems like the right direction for the sport and race. Gonna have to take the G off HH soon
