He went from beating LA on Mont Ventoux in the 2003 Dauphine Libere to a 6th place finish in the 2003 TdF to the biggest dissapointment in 04, 05, 06, and now a contender in this TdF.
What is up with this guy?

Roche went off on a weird one yesterday talking about how so many top climbers suffer from depression and commit suicide. It was like he thought it might be caused by too much fresh mountain air or something.

Ahh...do you expect Iban himself to answer your post? You definitely aren't going to get many answers from us are you.

Your guess is as good as mine, maybe its a new team, less pressure from the basque fans...who knows.

Its still quite exciting to see this guy ride aswell as he is now.

Now we definitely know why.

German authorities said Tuesday they have received documents from doping expert Werner Franke which he claims show Tour de France winner Alberto Contador was involved in doping.

I read that Mayo was supposed to receive a package from one of Fuentes associates "Manos Pequeñas" at last years tour. But he got a wrong package of drugs.

It also said that several other Euskaltel riders were doping during the tour last year: Iker Camano, Inaki Isasi, Inigo Landaluze and Gorka Verdugo.

It is supposed to all be organized by Gorka Gerrikagoitia, a DS for Euskaltel.

The guy who wrote it said he got the information from one of the persons involved with Fuentes.

not hard to believe.

Have to think, if the peloton was all on the same gear, or all on nothing (and there would be a difference because of responders) there would be alot of different riders up there.

Not just some French, but other folks, the Spaniards would not dominate the GTs, and even some Belgians might mix it up on the GT GC.

It takes some defying belief, to think that the Spaniard domination of the top 20 on GC in the GTs is because of the sporting culture and genetics. Sporting culture insofar as doping, but not insofar as Freire at Rabobank stage race centric.

Ofcourse, the Italians stay at home. But if everyone turned up, in France in July, with no Giro or Vuelta to be had in their legs that year, we would see a shakeup on GC.

Man, the sherpas could come to play too, and other Asian folk.

Another TDF dream destroyed because of improper lab results....... And yet, all the posters seemed to have inside knowlwdge of his doping......

Again....... The UCI/ASO need to eliminate all drug tests and allow certain posters on here do the judging since they all have such insight to
*............ Who's doping determined by past results.
*............ Have the knowlwdge of the exact number of injections
done during the TDF.
*............They have knowledge of doping methods and even the type
of dope each team takes..... such as "Disco dope."
