    http://www.cyclinginquisition.com/ has been vocal in the past about the doping problems in Colombian cycling. He only has a footnote about thee positives today, but he's not exactly surprised. There's a huge corruption issue hand in hand with it.
    “Road racing was over and the UCI had banned my riding positions on the track, so it was like ‘Jings, crivvens, help ma Boab, what do I do now? I know, I’ll go away and be depressed for 10 years’.”

    The Vikings are coming!

    Why are you happy, do you not want a clean sport, or are you just that narcissistic?

    Like I have said many times. Riders are still doping.

    Just happy that the evidence backs up my point. They just keep on coming ,,,how many is that in the last few months?


    It's no good get angry with me. I'm not doping :lol:

    Its the sport and riders that are letting you down. I'm just telling it like it is.

    Team Colombia aren't in the Vuelta a Andalucia. Perhaps you're referring to this?:

    There's a reason 4-72 have plenty of supporters:
    But there's another aspect to Saldarriaga's teams (both Colombia Es Pasion, and 4-72 today) which has been hugely beneficial to all riders: the team has its own bio passport and stringent testing program. You see, Colombian teams are not required to be a part of the bio passport program, and testing at Colombian races has been...uh...let's just say, spotty at times.

    Luis Largo came from EBSA - Indeportes Boyacá and got a good result in the Vuleta a COlombia last year.

    Well true, but what I meant more was Columbian...erm...Peasants trying their best to get out of their less than ideal situation by winning some bike races and getting a pro contract

    Lets be honest, working class boys trying to get out of the fields/factories by doping to win cycling races is as truely traditional as cycling gets!

    Stuff like this is what makes people counter the nonsense the trolls post on here

    The ones who've been popped? No, definitely absolutely definitely not

    (Colombia Es Pasion became 4-72 Colombia)

    No. Read the links:
    From earlier this month:
    Ómar Puentes (Elegant House), Jorge Martínez (Supergiros), Diego Quintero (GW Shimano) y Jahír Pérez (Ebsa).

    And now
    Luis Largo: EBSA - Indeportes Boyacá before signing for Team Colombia.
