    the hypocrisy on it's full act.

    During the 89's East and West Germany had a lot of athletes thriving internationally. After the unification the "wonder" athletes from East Germany were history but at the same time there weren't any German athletes in top level. Just like someone switched off everything.
    What it seems to me is that we have a political "witch-hunt" based though on real documents, just because the "Ossis" were pervert enough so to have a full documentation about everything they did.

    I still can't stop laughing that Lance himself handed over the 'key' to L’Equipe of his doping records for the 1999 Tour de France because he thought they were going to print a positive story about him ! What a fool ! Hook, line and sinker. Can you believe that he actually helped L'Equipe produce the story and seal his fate ? No wonder he won't sue them. What a farkwit !

    Funny enough it was the Chatenay Malabry in Paris which confirmed the positive test for Heras test for the lab in Madrid….. seems to me that the boys at the Chatenay Malabry lab know there stuff….. even when its to prove that a positive is an actual fact a negative (see below)… which again proves again that Armstrong is a fraud and the lab is independent.

    http://www.procycling.com/news.aspx?ID=1714




    The initial test was carried out by the UCI-accredited lab in Madrid, which delayed for a significant amount of time before informing the team, who then informed the rider. According to El Pais, the six-week delay between the test being undertaken on September 17 and the results being given to the team on October 27 were the result of caution on the part of the lab following a recent number of false positives using the EPO test. During this period, the Madrid lab sent the results to labs in Paris and Lausanne, both of which are reported to have confirmed them.

    The confirmation of the Chatenay Malabry lab in Paris is particularly notable as it is this lab that has confirmed that a number of recent EPO ‘positives’, including those of Fabrizio Guidi and world track champion Juan Llaneras, were in fact false.

    Oh dear... its not going to go away is it.... looks like all the truth will be revealed shortly....

    WADA chief Dick Pound declares that his organisation's investigation into Lance Armstrong's alleged EPO use at the 1999 Tour will continue, and knocks the UCI's efforts.

    World Anti-Doping Agency president Dick Pound had said that the investigation into allegations of doping made by French newspaper L’Equipe against Lance Armstrong will continue in the new year. “It’s not going to go away,” Pound told Reuters. “We’re dealing with all the spins out there right now but behind scenes there are investigations quietly proceeding.”

    Pound added: “There is no urgency because he is not going to be in another race, but there are some explanations that are going to have to be given.”

    Following Armstrong’s seventh Tour victory, L’Equipe published a story alleging the American had used the banned blood-boosting product EPO on his way to victory in the 1999 race. Armstrong has consistently denied that he has ever used performance-enhancing drugs.

    The combative Pound was also critical of the International Cycling Union, saying: “The UCI says it is conducting an investigation, although we can’t seem to get information about it, and we are doing our own… Right now the only thing they seem concerned about is how this embarrassing information got into the public domain. And there are another 15 or so positive tests on which they refuse to comment.”

    Yeah! Well said. The only way a french rider -- hell, let's call them frogs -- could win the Tour is if the Tour was clean.

    Stupid frogs.

    Nope, except Hincapie getting knocked out of the lead of Eneco within sight of the finish line... by the eventual winner.

    Oh, and Pound is showing his genius. In the midst of the worst doping scandals to hit cycling, with testing obviously coming up short and a crisis screaming for better regulation, he's going after Armstrong again.

    Has Zabel done anything?

    Actually, I take back that swipe at Pound. It took a moment for his brilliance to become apparent.

    After he's through with Armstrong, what about Indurain? He dominated in probably the most dope soaked days of cycling. And it took a real doper to beat him. Sounds guilty to me. Nail him, cowboy! And before that, LeMond made that miraculous recovery from near death. We all know about people who recover from near death and win the Tour next year... Guilty.

    So the plan is to forget about the doping that's currently going on, let a rider become a star, rake in twenty or thirty million in salary and endorsements, retire in wealth, and five years later, you'll nail them to the wall and humiliate them. But they get to keep the money...

    Pure genius, Dick. That sets a stirling example for all cyclists to follow, especially if they want to get rich. And it certainly will have an impact on the doping that's going on right now, even if it is a negative impact. Yep, not to worry, folks, Big Dick is on the job!

    Has anyone ever considered drug testing for WADA officials? I think Pound has been doing funny things to his brain during lunch hour.
