    Is it rider or riders? When I read this I thought it might be Andreu who has already spilled the beans hasn't he? Hamilton hasn't got much to lose these days and hasn't Vaughters already hinted at doping during his time at Postal?

    IMHO, this just shows that an amnesty makes more and more sense. Let's get it all out and move on.

    Nothing concrete of yet.

    Just that 2 members of US Postal team had driven 10km to throw a bunch of (200?) syringes in the garbage.

    Just because 2 members of US Postal team had driven 10km to throw syringes in the garbage isn't evidence Lance used the syringes himself.

    Allegations aren't solid enough, its all been speculation at best so far.

    Sorry, didn't want to make it sound like you didn't read the article, I just thought there would be others the Feds coveted other than LL, although it sounds like I may be wrong. Do the Feds have much power to question foreign riders like Heras? Just wondering how much involvement the foreign riders may have in this process.

    Oh, yeah. Mike Clark. Crazy guy who was run off medialens.org. I imagine we will be getting some real good stories about your looniness from the medialens guys.

    Martha and Marion would no doubt tell me that lying is bad. However I don't think lynching up a few bike riders with green cards will really help in the long run. This isn't Novawhatzky's fault, this isn't just an American problem.

    As I type this, I realise we're never going to see totally clean cycling (or football, athletics etc). Surely it can get a bit cleaner than the last fifteen or so years though.

    They haven’t got cleaner, just better at masking it. This is going to a huge uphill battle to clean up pro athletes. It’s all about the pressure to perform and win for the big money men.

    As I said earlier, when alleged doping systems are exposed to civil authority investigations, we see this sort of blame game start.

    The riders and managers begin to realise that individual responsibility takes precedence and CYA (cover your ****) kicks in.
    We saw this at Festina.
    We saw it at Liberty.

    The recriminations will start in earnest.

    Really road, what's this all about?
    You've started 6 anti - Lance threads recently, that's more than you've been starting during your Lance - worship days. Your activity goes beyond activity of Armstrong's biggest haters here. It's more than disappointment, isn't it?
    Did you get the same treatment as his team mates regarding payment?
    Or you don't want to be board idiot anymore?
    Do you still share the same room with No_Positives?

    Strikes me that you're still obsessed with Lance whether you love him or hate him.

    i wouldn't go as far a to say obsessed, interested in the story from start to finish without a doubt.

    hey listen, just because you all haven't had anyone in your entire country believed to be honest and clean win seven strait tours and no less a manner that would make Superman jealous, none of your riders could ever emulate in your country's history, past present future and then find out he's the biggest damn liar in the world, don't go knocking me for following it all...


    thanks for reminding me though, i got some checking of the news to do. :D

    No need to get all nationalistic on my ass. Just for the record the first English speaking World road champ, winner of Milan San Remo, Flanders, Lombardy etc...was an Englishman.

    If your avatar is anything to go by I think you're the one getting "bent all out of shape".

    eat my shorts! :) nah, i guess i could've worded myself a bit different. i just meant that i have no real indifference or preference from one continent to another, they are all occupied by humans, it's just that this one is home to The Cycling Great/Fraud, same difference.
