AG2R La Mondiale (Fr). Once best known for the hideous brown shorts worn by their riders, the French team make headlines for their solid performances at the business end of the toughest bicycle races. They won the team classification at last year’s Tour and in Jean-Christophe Péraud and Romain Bardet, had two riders placed inside the top six on General Classification. Their all-rounder Biel Kadri, who has not made this year’s team, also won a stage. With Péraud currently out of form, Bardet is likely to lead their assault on the GC this year. Team leader: Jean-Christophe Péraud (Fr) or Romain Bardet (Fr). While Péraud finished second last year, Bardet was the revelation of the race, finishing sixth overall and second in the Best Young Rider classification. A team regularly mired in scandal since their 2006 inception, they have had a troubled time since Vincenzo Nibali won last year’s Tour. Brothers Valentin and Maxim Iglinskiy both tested positive for EPO, while three members of their Continental feeder team also fell foul of the drug testers, prompting the International Cycling Union (UCI) to recommend their World Tour licence be...
Ernesto Duronto, vice president of Argentina’s association of forensic experts, said many irregularities are seen in the video, which was shot by federal police and obtained by Canal 13. The video “shows how things should not be done,” Duronto... She acknowledged what the video captured but said it had no impact on the case. In the video, an officer is seen removing articles from Nisman’s safe without gloves. Officers are also seen picking up Nisman’s cellphone without gloves and cleaning the gun found at the scene with toilet paper. Fein said police cleaned only part of the pistol to read the serial number and that would not have eliminated a criminal’s fingerprints. The next day, he was scheduled to elaborate to Congress on his allegations that President Cristina Fernandez had orchestrated a secret deal to cover up the alleged role of Iranian officials in the deadly 1994 car bombing of a Jewish community... More than four months since Nisman’s death, no suspects have been arrested and Fein has said authorities are not sure whether Nisman was killed or committed suicide. com/2015/07/02/jim_webb_jumps_in_confederate_flag_supporter_announces_bid_for_the_democratic_nomination/" class="plain gaTrackLinkEvent" data-ga-track-json='["morerelatedstories", "click", "Jim Webb jumps in: Confederate flag supporter announces...
We're at the point where the draft feels like it occurred months ago, despite the fact that less than two weeks have passed. Some fans will look back on the weekend's action and wish they could swap selections for draft choices they didn't agree with. There are years where you see a player like Justin Houston fall to the third round and say to yourself, "He's going to make 31 teams look foolish. " Houston is an example of a pick every team wishes they would have swapped a selection for before the Kansas City Chiefs were able to snag him in the middle rounds. Now there are only so many Houstons in the world, but that feeling of "I wish my team would have drafted X instead of Y" is a typical reaction that develops not in the immediate aftermath of draft weekend but years down the line. In an attempt to fast-forward to that point, we'll break down the player each team will regret passing up on the most, given their current situation. Either way, on paper, these names seem to be the clubhouse leaders for the "How did we pass up on Justin Houston for Jonas Mouton. In the fourth round of the draft, the Arizona Cardinals traded up for a small-school defensive lineman by the name of Rodney Gunter. It's obvious that the Cardinals badly wanted him as a 3-4 defensive end in their new scheme, with defensive coordinator Todd Bowles leaving town to take the head coaching gig with the New York Jets.
