Paul Kimmage - realist or bitter
I listened to the Irish Times Second Captains podcast that had an interview with Paul Kimmage about the tour and about David Walshs Sunday Times paean to Chris Froome.
To me it sounds like Kimmage is very very bitter and goes beyond questioning performance to totally slating both the rider and Walsh. Now my point here is, can the sport ever move on if folk like Kimmage are asking for data to be published, for a largely uneducated audience to go, oooh look at the power output there or performance improvement, they must be doping?
Brailsfords idea of submitting the whole shooting match to WADA would be the way forward I think.
Cycling is the most tested sport at the moment (but also has the most high profile notable dopers) yet golf, American Football, football and other sports appear to get a reasonably free ride from this type of scrutiny.
By all means keep an open mind and don't believe the hype but Kimmages unrelenting negativity (largely as a result of how the sport treated him (appallingly)) does not move this forward.
