so nice to see the polka dot jersey back on the podium instead of 20 minutes back on GC

Kudos to Mr Kohl

For sure!

When was the last time?

It'd be real nice to see the maillot vert on the podium too one of these days!

Valverde would be the best bet IMO because he can sprint but... You know.

Virenque was 2nd overall and won the KOM in 97... no podiums by the KOM since. Rasmussen was on the verge in 2005, but his superb TT killed that for him.

Virenque '97 that's certainly a deserved podium. Rasmussen almost as much. Makes you wonder about Kohl.

that doesnt make me wonder about kohl. kohl wouldnt be anywhere near the dots if ricco hadnt been booted for actually doping.

just because virenque and rasmussen doped/likely doped, and both were on the podium (or near it) with the polka dots, does not mean kohl doped to get a podium spot and the climbers jersey. so we can say, bjarne riis used epo to win his tour, therefore, all winners of the tour have used epo to win.

both of Virenques and the Chickens

high GC placings were because they were 'let go' by the peloton to go on an exploit
and gained so much time they snuck into the GC
Virenque took that formula and made it a science
RV after his exploit in his following Polka dot years would lose minutes so he could go on such exploits.he would also lose minutes the following day

Kohl challenged, never dominated but was there day in, day out
