Have any of the past doping cases provided info as to who the suppliers were!

Only as far as the various "Doctors!"

So, where did the doctors get the drugs from?

I asked this same question to USADA.

Hmmm. Doping/Drugs. One is a supplier the other is a user. Both are breaking the law!

That will only happen if the fans push for it.

And it doesn't look like any of the fans of the other sports are pushing for anything.

Back in the old days we believe in things like good sportsmanship, ethics ,honor and honesty. Now the money and endorsements are so huge that leads to temptations and violations.

Thank you. Hopefully the 2013 Tour has really turned the corner, away from doping? The past 10 years and more have exposed Cycling as a dope ridden sport. Especially at the professional level.

My gut feelings are Chris Froome was dirty, based on his past history and other factors he is not capable of this type of performance.

...not saying that I'm doubting you but could you outline his past History and those other Factors that you mention.

Go read the other cycling forums and you'll get your answer Gus.

But, for now I'll give CF and TS the same support as I did with FL and LA.

Never mind other forums. Tell us what you know on THIS forum. Many peoplethought he was better than Wiggins in last years TDF, now along come the 'knockers' Put your money where your mouth is and we can have a little bet,'clean' or 'dirty'
What history? Why is he not 'capable' of this performance. The Sky team have to much to lose to ride 'dirty'

Cyclingfan, you have to know that Chris is far too lazy to read other cycling forums as they prefer everyone else to do their home work for them.

And since Chris is also a Brit living in England, he's not going to be open minded here to having his heroes attacked in this manner.

Chris, as much as you have a good point about Chris Froome in last year's TDF and that this year's TDF was excellent, there are many others who have also provided very good technical points about Team Shy and it's riders as well.

As I have stated before, I will always provide them with the benefit of the doubt till they are proven dirty or when they admit it themselves.

But, since all of us here have done the same with Floyd Landis and Lance Armstrong as well, well you know personally how that turned out. And "7" straight TDF wins was a suspected point of contention all by itself.

Now where have I heard that statement before, like a few hundred times?

Well Chris and Gus, you have a very good point is asking cyclingfan to provide his/her points of opinion.

But, then both you Gus and Chris also need to provide your points of resoning as to why you believe that Team Sky and it's riders are riding clean.

That is only a fair way of play here fellers.

So Gus, you looking into your mirror again, while hollering idiot at the image in that mirror!

Tsk, Tsk Gus. Just as I can tell when people are real, I can also do the same when reading any forum. Not my fault that Team Sky has followed in a similar behaviour pattern of Lance Armstrong and company.

But, I'm also not accusing them of doping as I do not have any evidence that states otherwise.

Seems that you Gus are incapable of comprehending what other people state as well. Just go back to your bottle and be content with yourself.
