The 2015 CIRC “Truth & Reconciliation” report found that from 1998-2013 there were exactly four TdF winners who weren’t associated with substantiated doping findings: Sastre, Evans, Wiggins, and Froome. Depending on your opinion of whether a sophisticated, long-term abuse of the TUE process constitutes “doping” you might shrink that to two winners. And those were amazing chaotic TdFs.
Whether Pogacar is doping or not, I think that’s why there’s disappointment when, year after year, some “once in a generation talent” comes to the top and destroys everyone. For some folks, that’s what they want to see. For others it ruins the race.
As far as “benefit of the doubt” goes, when you go to Disneyworld, there’s always a chance that Mickey is, in fact, a giant talking mouse and not, like every single other time, a college student in a mouse suit, but this kind of induction is how humans stay sane.
Edit: I promise, no more on the matter–at least until next year. Doping talk is in poor taste in a general race forum.
