Floyd Landis, the one-time doper turned informant, has called for Sir Bradley Wiggins to be stripped of his 2012 Tour de France title. The American delivered a scathing assessment of the former Olympic champion and Sir Dave Brailsford, the Team Sky principal, who remained silent amid further calls for his resignation.
That came as Shane Sutton, a former Team Sky coach, turned the heat up on Wiggins and the team’s former medic to explain what drugs the five-times Olympic champion had taken and why.
Landis said Wiggins would definitely have benefited from the substance. “It’s 100% performance enhancing,” the American told the Guardian. “Certain steroids increase body mass and certain ones decrease it. But they are stress hormones designed to help the body respond to fight-or-flight syndrome and increase physical ability in a life-or-death fight and that’s what cycling Eric Weems Youth jersey is. It’s undeniable it gives a performance enhancement. There’s no ambiguity.”
Landis was stripped of his 2006 Tour de France title for doping after being told of a positive test for testosterone. Some may distrust him because of his drug‑taking history even when Landis’s testimony about widespread doping in cycling contributed to the downfall of Lance Armstrong. “I don’t know what the authorities will do about Team Sky,” Landis http://www.officialauthenticredsox.com/authentic-19-jackie-bradley-jr-jersey.html said, “but they kicked me out and took Authentic Steve Grogan Jersey my title for taking steroids [he tested positive for synthetic testosterone], so the same should happen to Wiggins.”
“On top of the Froome case you put it all together and the only people who are going to try to defend Team Sky are people who still believe Donald Trump. It doesn’t matter how much you put the truth in front of their face; it makes no difference.
