did anyone see Jensie being interviewed by Ned on ITV4 day before the news broke? He was saying how he believed the peloton was now clean. and then his team mate kicked him in the balls....

I'm pretty Jens would always have said the peloton was clean.

Had someone actually kicked Jens in the balls, I'm pretty sure that would have resulted in a broken foot for them ;)

Reaching straight for the Contador playbook, I see.

Jens came across as just that when interviewed on Wednesday morning. Palpaby agonising between loyalty to a team mate and a genuine abhorrence of the cycling drug culture. My heart went out to the big fella!

I will therefore continue my search to find out how the substance could have entered my body.

Yes, considering the teams he's ridden for he must find all the nasty doping awful.

I love him but he came out of the hardcore East German gymnasiums like Ullrich/Zabel etc. He's ridden in CA, GAN and for Ullrich in the 2000 Olympics and has been a party to all that's gone on whether he took anything or not. Don't RSNT lose any prize money as a result of Frank? Also, he gave up the job with SAXO to follow the Schlecks and it's gone sour

Any news on this issue?

Also does anyone know if they had Frank's DNA to test against Puerto bags?

Btw, how long will Andy be banned for?

I mean, a Frank-positive is an Andy-positive. We all know that.

Positive test for Frank or not, id say it's 90% likely A. Schleck has doped.

a) He trains with Frank everyday of his life
b) Everyone says Contador won his tours through obvious doping - which means the man who kept with him in the mountains and finished seconds behind him was probably also on the juice by that logic
c) Anyone who races like sh*t all year except for a 3 week period needs looking at.
d) Everything about him and his brother has been fishy this year. Still think there are reasons behind his absence barring the hip.
e) He races under Bruyneel
f) Brother frank likes to buy 'training' plans from suspicious doctors

All hearsay of course - but that counts for a lot on these forums.
