No positives have come out of Horner's doping controls


Very few riders in history have ever been caught by UCI tests, Fletch.

Lance claimed he was tested 500 times, didn't he? :)

It still amazes me that Horner could win a grand tour this late in his career. Is it really all about the team than the rider?
Bianchi, Ridley, Montague, GT, Garmin and All things Apple :)

Well, it's a team sport.

A grand tour winner has to achieve a lead with an individual climb or time trial, but then has to defend the gain with team mates.
