Kittel

He continues to be good value with his opinions.

He said he'd never go to Astana and doesn't know what possessed anyone to give them a WT licence.

I guess Vino will have a heavy put him in a ditch next year
Fckin' Quintana … that creep can roll, man.

Good man. To be fair, it would have to be a super-heavy to put young Marcel in a ditch - the guy's a big unit

Is there a trend here, in that it's only the physically big young riders (Kittel and Phinney being the obvious examples) who are speaking out against doping?

As the exception that proves the rule I give you Sammy Dumoulin, or as he's usually called "little Sammy Dumoulin".
Correlation is not causation.

Kittel has pi$$ed of Jakob Fuglsang with his rather robust comments, who defended Astana (because they have employed him one should mention) and also claimed Kittel 'had his problems', using that UV blood manipulation thing. But i seem to remember it was for 'health reasons' or something... Oh well, they're getting the handbags out anyway.

Or musettes, perhaps?

As Tail Wind Home says in another thread, it being the off season its a very fertile ground for lots of huffing and puffing and argufying in the absence of any actual racing
