This strikes me as hypocritical and simple-minded stuff from Neal Rogers, cheering Di Luca’s getting caught by young unknown riders who have yet to be caught in any doping dragnets.
Garmin is packed full of “riders with controversial pasts.” Let’s see if he has the same venom for them as they defend their Giro title.
While his move was bold, that Di Luca was unable to hold his attack on Tuesday is encouraging.
The day when the pro peloton is clear of suspicion will likely never materialize. However, the day when the peloton is clear of riders with controversial pasts may be only a few years away.
Translation: Di Luca’s defeat helps us pretend that they’re not all still doping.

Great bike racers really do need all sorts of things to accomplish what TD did in that stage into Aspen this year. They need freakish talent, guts, race smarts, incredibly hard training, including core strength training and I’m sure he knows plenty about it, and good luck. They need teammates who have these things and are willing to make themselves barf on their behalf. Also, a really effective doping program is a necessity if you want to compete with the other guys who have all of the aforementioned list in addition to a highly effective doping program. And yet TD can’t come out and say what I just did. Can’t say it. Has to lie like a complete weasel instead. He has been on the right team for that.
According to Tom’s new book, “Core Strength for Cycling’s Winning Edge” tells the story of how Danielson was able to use strength training techniques to be a better racer.

I don’t know — is that the proper term? Sounds nasty.
I rode this for the first time recently. A new twist on an old classic near Boulder.
