  • Reckon it would encourage confessions? Why not prosecute based on witness testimonies and let the other rides sue for lost earnings. Legal shit fight going on for years. Way more interesting than East Enders.

  • UCI have just ruled out an amnesty, but even if they flip-flop on that there's the problem, particularly for Posties, of financial claims. The Armstrong era didn't just introduce effective doping and anti-doping evasion/corruption, but also the concept of hedging sponsors' win bonus risks on the financial markets.

  • I don't doubt they are true. But he cheated and got away with it, so any mealy mouthed confession is a little hollow in my view, especially given how he's benefitted so much financially from being Lance's loyal team mate.

    He could always redeem himself by giving it all to Livestrong, the famous cancer charity.

  • 30 min David Millar documentary from Spanish TV. Lots of English audio and my O level Spanish gots me through the rest.

    Things you are not allowed to say about the UCI bosses:

    are corrupt, are terrorists, have no regard for the rules, load the dice, are fools, do not have a genuine desire to restore discipline to cycling, are full of shit, are clowns, their words are worthless, are liars, are no different to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi,

  • To enforce this judgement against a US citizen, they will need to go to a US court. US courts have become increasingly keen to tell European courts where to stick their defamation judgements.

    Too good to be true ride was err too good to be true.

  • Two years for a 34 year old. End of his career. Good riddance.

  • He wasn't banned then was he? Back in your box.

  • Too good to be true ride was err too good to be true.

    mmm. I wish I had said something along those lines. Last July.

    That box is obviously too small for you though.

  • "In 2003 he was prevented from racing the 3 Days of West Flanders when he came in over the hematocrit limit. In 2005, he was prevented from riding the world championship in Madrid after failing a blood test conducted by the UCI. He claimed at that time that being an athlete, his body was producing more red blood cells than the average person."

    I didn't realise he'd actually failed tests in the past. So, still 7 years too late.

  • That would be the 'dodgy past' I alluded to in my post.
    When we move in, you can't keep your bikes in that box, by the way.

  • Jesus fucking wept, hippy, are those the standard of midgets you're getting these days?!

  • Chinese copies are everywhere on ebay these days..

  • cyclingnews.com/news/houanard-provisionally-suspended-for-epo

    The UCI has provisionally suspended Steve Houanard (AG2R La Mondiale) for EPO use following the results of an out-of-competition test conducted on September 21, 2012.

  • 26 years old. Not exactly the old guard that were supposed to be leaving the peloton.. :(

  • French rider at end of his contract popped for EPO, and Sky announce Geert Leinders will not be working with them again now we smashed our targets and BC Olympic funding secured for a generation for reasons unknown.

  • Team Squeaky

  • 26 years old. Not exactly the old guard that were supposed to be leaving the peloton.. :(

    No contract for next year, needed some end of season success, got desperate, got stupid. Got caught.

    But not part of any sophisticated doping ring

  • Where's the evidence he's not part of a 'sophisticated doping ring'?

    As far as the report goes we don't even know if he's requested b sample yet, which is slightly annoying if by some stretch he happened to be innocent.
