That came as Shane Sutton
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 Brailsford had to take ultimate responsibility for any drugs taken by Team Sky cyclists. Sam Martin Jersey A parliamentary select committee report this week concluded that Wiggins, and possible support riders, had taken performance-enhancing drugs to prepare for the Tour de France under the guise of legitimately treating a medical condition. Wiggins said his use of the powerful steroid http://www.footballcowboysjersey.com/james-hanna-jersey-for-sale-c-46.html triamcinolone before three of cycling’s Grand Tours was to treat allergies and denied crossing any ethical line, as was http://www.officialramsfootballshop.com/YOUTH+JOSH+REYNOLDS+JERSEY claimed by the digital, culture, media and sport select committee report.
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.”
Landis, 42, believes the sponsors will walk away from Team Sky in the wake of this latest crisis. “Corporations soon won’t want to put their name next to a cycling team. If I were running a http://www.officialnetsproshoponline.com/authentic-22-caris-levert-jersey.html business Derek Roy Authentic Jersey and wanted to keep its image positive, I would have left Team Sky a long time ago.
“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.
“It’s not going away; this is the new reality for these guys. I’ve been in this world. I know how the dynamics work and Brailsford has to take responsibility for what was going on.” wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china cheap jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys
