    While I agree that he better get used to sloppy seconds... Remember 2007.

    Paris-Nice Predictions

    Perhaps you'd like to tell those "stupid cheats" how to access the newest gear that is very rare and prohibitively expensive for the vast majority??? The really successful cheats don't take dope thinking "Gee, I hope I don't get caught". They, like Marion Jones, take the dope knowing that their...

    Paris-Nice Predictions

    Are you saying that you don't understand the difference between doping that is genuinely performance enhancing and that which is more accurately described as 'performance maintaining'? The drugs I listed for the latter have very minimal performance enhancing effect. Corticosteroids help you get...

    Paris-Nice Predictions

    You are the only one saying anything along the lines that Contador is the only doper. (By that I mean that that is what you are accusing others of saying.) The problem I have with Contador is not that he is "the only doper", but that he is taking doping to a much higher level, much like...

    Paris-Nice Predictions

    So did Astana/Contadope deliberately tank today (Stage 3) to reduce suspicion and to reduce the number of dope samples taken from their riders?

    Paris-Nice Predictions

    Maybe Contador is going to win everything but the Tour, which will be given by the Astana vampires to Lance. Afterall, Contador owes Lance for agreeing to ride the Giro. When he did, the Giro organisers then said they wouldn't do anymore testing of the Giro 2008 samples. Regarding what drug(s)...

    Worst bike shops in Melbourne?

    They told me this in 2003. The SBR guy who told me that "all bikes feel the same" also said that no shops selling high end bikes allowed test rides. I told him that I'd just taken a Colnago EPS with Super Record for a test ride at another shop. He then said that there was no point taking a...

    Worst bike shops in Melbourne?

    Start off with some absolutely **** advice given to me by Swim Bike Run in St Kilda. "There is no use taking a bike for a test ride because all bikes feel the same". Or another pearl from Mascot Cycles in Bridge Road, Richmond. "Mavic wheels are not compatible with Campagnolo equipment".

    Rider Transfers

    I think you are a female George W. Bush. You, like GWB, take the approach of: if you say a lie enough, it starts to become true. In addition, you, like GWB, have an IQ of about 30.

    Bravo Contador! Takes his place as one of the greats.

    Yes, he will stand along side the greats of cycling. His name will forever be remembered along with legends like Fuentes, Ferrari, Cecchini et al.

    Armstrong comeback!

    If Lance really does come back to the Tour, the worst thing for me will be having to listen to the commentary of Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen. They talked about Lance more than any other rider even in the last three Tours when he wasn't riding. How much will they go on about him next year if he is?

    Paulinho's convenient excuse?

    Sergio Paulinho pulls out of the Olympics because he's "suffering from allergies and expected China's weather conditions to worsen his state" according to www.cyclingnews.com Should we read into this that he's been on the CERA too recently and doesn't want to risk getting caught? After all, he...

    CSC's morale and teamwork is a fraud

    I agree. The mutual man-love thing is all PR spin. Much like USPS/DSC and the "we just train harder" crappola.

    Evans, reasons to dislike him

    Evans, reasons to dislike him

    Yeah right, if only Cadel could be a better bloke like other Grand Tour winners. If only he could be more like Indurain and Menchov, who have as much personality as a plank. If only he could be more like Lance, who is an arrogant bully. If only he could be more like Contadope, shooting...

    CSC strategy on Stage 17?

    He's still dirty and just about everyone else is starting to clean up their doping act.
