Being Padrone of the Peloton has it’s own responsibilities, including the designation of who is a fucking wanker and who is not. Brad stepped up this week when rumors of doping appeared at Team Sky’s performance. “Cunts” he elaborated when asked.
Stage 8: Thibaut Pinot
“What do you say to the cynics who think that you have to be doped up to win the Tour de France?” Wiggins replied. “They are just fucking wankers. I cannot be doing with people like that. It justifies their own bone-idleness because they can’t ever imagine applying themselves to anything in their lives. It’s easy for them to sit under a pseudonym on Twitter rather than get off their arses in their own life and apply themselves and work hard at something and achieve something, and that’s ultimately it. Cunts!”
Later the Tan Man lobs him a please explain. He’s not afraid to ask the hard journalistic questions (or wear purple velvet jackets).
Robert Millar’s take:
“Speculation on what former Rabobank doctor Leinders role is or was, or stuff like the remoteness from the testers of the [Team Sky] Mount Tiede training camps, the metamorphosis of Wiggins, the emergence of Froome, the revival of Rogers and Porte is all just speculation. The fact is you will never know, you can only hope.”
Roll on the Pyrenees!
