Froomey is hot news right now... and rightly so even though he wants to keep it quite.
The closing paragraph annoys me but will provide some content but included the last two.
There’s no real conclusion to this. This is not a hot take saying you should forgive Wiggins because his TUEs were revealed by a hack with ulterior motives, or that your skepticism of Froome is unfounded. That’s nonsense; a deed done is a deed done and there has been plenty of subsequent investigation to suggest that Team Sky has long had an unhealthy attraction to gray areas.
But we do have a tendency to believe that propaganda — and let’s be clear, that’s what this was — only works on other people; that we alone are rational and able to see through the fog. This time, I’d say it worked quite well on us.
The title and point of the article is that hacking by a Russian sponsored entity is connected to leaked / revealed information related to shady practices. But are cycling fans 'suckers' because some information is available in what is suggested as a politically motivated stunt... or are cycling fans suckers because some riders and teams purposely make it opaque and this has been going on since cycle competition started?
I understand what the author is attempting to say but it doesn't work... the opposite active would have been that information was not publicised and there was less scrutiny of the Team Sky riders, but it doesn't make the practices any cleaner or transparent.
