That's brilliant: you snipe at my posts looking to geta rise out of me, you get a rise out of me then say you're not trying to troll me, then say you're not going to get sucked into a tit-for-tat. If I could I'd rep you I would, but apparently I have to spread it around, and not because I've nerged you.

Well played.

see it however you want to. I wasn't trying to get a rise or wind you up (you seem to be able to do that all on your own). Even if I had the time to respond in full, I don't think I would have the inclination - it doesn't really seem that you're angry at cycling any more, just me.

^Nearly every quote in that is off.

I never won anything I couldn't win
I love the idea that someone might dope but only win races he could have won anyhow?!

You can mistakes in life
Doping is not so much a mistake as a deliberate attempt to cheat. it's not like he got out of bed in the night to get a glass of water then stepped on a syringe full of epo.

It's certainly not very nice
Yes, neither is cheating

doesn't change much for my fans
except they now know you as a cheat

The UCI have just announced the commencement of disciplinary proceedings against Jonathan Tiernan-Locke for biological passport violations.

Expect his suspension by Sky in 3, 2, 1....

Innocent until proven guilty of course. It'll be interesting to see how quickly BC can resolve the case.

It's worth noting that so far, the UCI have never opened a case using biological passport data as proof and lost.

It's well documented that the case was brought based on evidence gathered from before he signed for Sky.

Clearly we don't see everything, but it was obvious from very early on this season that his performances at Sky were a long way off what he'd been doing the year before at Endura.

Quite soon given the role they gave him in races and how much they modified his race program so he only rode races they didn't give a toss about.

Mixed feelings on this one, given the impassioned defence given by Tom Southam (http://www.cyclingnews.com/features/...locke-is-clean) and Brian Smith.

If he was on the juice, why would he have requested the extra testing while at Endura?

On the other hand, the bio passport doesn't appear to highlight false positives (that I have heard of). I have also ridden with a chap who trained in the group JTL rode with in Bristol, and he was adamant that JTL was charging up even then (pre-Endura days)

Southam and Smith won't be the first to have been caught out by a friend or colleague who doped, yet told them otherwise.

Endura were a Pro Continental team and the UCI can't afford to put in a biological passport program at that level. I imagine Endura's budget was small, and they wouldn't have had the funds to run a fully fledged bio passport for their riders. JTL would have known this so saying he welcomed being tested was easy for him to say, knowing that it wasn't going to happen.

His sudden rise to prominence was as suspicious as hell, and many noted it at the time.
