Personally, I don't think Team Sky is legit, and haven't been for years..


Even going back to when Bradley Wiggins was their leader I thought something was fishy. They're even stronger now than they were then. The only team that has ever dominated the peloton the way Sky does was US Postal and Discovery, and we know now those teams had a systemic doping program. Team Sky is even more dominant than those teams were, and Froome has been doing things on the bike for the last 3 years that Armstrong and Wiggins never did. Sky would beat US Postal head to head every time.

The other thing they have in common with Armstrong's teams is their secrecy. they seem to have a policy of secrecy that follows the game program of every dirty team of the past, like US Postal, Discovery, Festina, etc. It just seems to always turn out that the most secretive teams eventually end up being the ones who get caught doping. I think it goes with mindset. If you know you have a doping program, you're going to be paranoid and you're not going to want to talk to anyone about much of anything.

Now you take what's been going on with Wiggins and allegations that he failed doping tests. All the Sky team replies with "That has nothing to do with us." When the fact is, that entire team was built around Wiggins, just like Armstrong's teams were built around him.

You look at where Team Sky comes from; they're all members of the UK cycling program that totally dominates world track cycling. I think there's a good reason why they're so head and shoulders above everyone else.
