Interesting also to see if the WTC will have bought the race by the time it starts next weekend.... Laughing Laughing Laughing


Hopefully they will have learned their lesson and kept ownership within the 'Family' rather than a third party/event company franchise, which is how they lost so many other events.

If AB can stay injury free, he's the next Frodeno, but better. Not sure if that be caveated with, as long as it's not roasting hot?


I think we'll see a massive increase in the average performance, and he won't be completely dominant. Even if AB is a clean athlete, the testing is simply not there, so the risk/reward ratio has changed and the dopers will need to increase their doping (risk) to compete with AB.


I'm not sure why you feel the need to bring doping into this conversation?


I was wondering the same thing

Because it's elite sport, elite sport is rife with doping, please do not pretend it's not. It does no-one at all any favours.
