    Valverde: I never tested positive

    Valverde has a way with words. Not great PR for the sport.

    He paid his due, served his ban, for what happened at a time that doping was given. But on the other hand, those guys Froome and Wiggins were never banned for their violation, errgh I mean TUEs. Get over it man. Valverde is no saint, but I like how you give Froome the thumbsup. Hard to miss your pro-Froome "subtlety". Brit?

    That whoosh you heard was the significance and familiarity of the words “never tested positive” going over your head - yet again.

    38 year old with super human results, and a unrepentant hard core doping past. What "dues" did he pay exactly. . . .

    Lance did and was given a back dated TUE for it. Valverde hasn't. Best thing for him to say, probably not, but his ban did not come from a positive test it came from matching DNA to a blood bag. At this point the team really needs to have someone from their PR dept have a discussion with him. However, I also know Valverde isn't the best of speakers to begin with. So that's also there. Oh and in that interview he also said, people will think whatever they want.

    Since at least 1991 every elite tour rider used PEDs and today its a standard or common in almost every sport.

    What's the difference? Did someone steal Valverde's blood in his sleep and plant it in Fuentes fridge?
    I believe the children are the future. Teach them well and let them lead the way.

    Testing blood bags is not failing an anti doping test. As we have learned not failing an anti doping test does not mean an athlete is not doping.
