Pound has an axe to grind, and he's grinding it at cycling's expense. He
has no personal investment in cycling. Perhaps he honestly wants to
clean up 'sport', considering sport as a whole, but he seems to be quite
prepared to sacrifice one sport - ours - pour encourager les autres.

In saying that I'm not saying there's no doping in the peloton. We know
there is. But that doesn't mean to say you have to take Pound's
posturing at face value.
