    OK, I will say it -

    WHAT THE FUCK

    How can he not be suspended? How can he be lining up to RACE???

    Would he have worn his WC jersey had this been a month ago? That
    would have been something.

    unbelievable. I hope he gets some boos, but I bet he gets alot of
    "support" like tricky dicky did.

    People are stupid.

  2. people arent stupid.. they just dont need their heros to be perfect... if the
    fans liked the guy they probably still do... athletes in all sports sometimes
    represent something to some people that is unefffected by taking drugs or
    gambling or drinking too much, or beating your wife even...

    virenque is a great example of that... how must it have felt for him to have
    gotten all the love that he did from his people?... fucking great thats how...
    like it or not heros are real damned hard to kill... thats a good thing i
    think...

    RED TAPE MAN! The belgians are too busy trying to get Musseuw on
    something, they just ddon't have the time. Besides, they can always
    take it back.

    What you should be asking is why is he racing? IOW, why would he feel
    he should show up?

    There was a Belgian doping commission meeting just last week.
    Mind you, one of the results they considered was from a race in March.

    Perhaps these fans do not suffer from an excess of self righteousness.

    Yah that is kinda what I was shocked by. What the hell does HE think
    he is doing? What does he expect to happen? Is he so comfortable in
    his position with the fans that he feels he can show up for a farewell
    race and get some love or something?

    Then i read his interview (expanded) in the print VN this month. I
    still find it lame that they did that interview the way they did.
    Those were supposed to be the hard questions, verses part 1. It was
    still pretty effing chummy coming from people who's lively hood
    depends on the health of the sport, and he cant be helping it.

    Thats why i like Lindsey. He would have ripped him a new one,
    journalistically.

    Uggh. So sick of this doping shit taking over. Lets go watch some
    cross. Oh wait, the biggest needle sticker of them all is going to
    come over here for ALL SIX cup races. Pontoni. Funny how he only
    races at a few UCI races a year, and avoids them other then that. Now
    he comes over here to the "backwater" of cross maybe hoping to pull in
    here and make some good cabbage and not get tested.

    are you serious?
    send this info to crank brothers and see if they can look
    into it; they hold the title sponsorship to the gran prix.

    As far as I know, he has never tested positive. Dont want to sound
    like "all the others" but he is one of those guys that is just average
    (in the teens) at the world cups he still shows up to (and pretty much
    none anymore), races only a little in Italy, and then shows up at
    worlds and gets still mangages 4th, etc.

    Smells like the stay away and prepare for the big race routine you
    read so much about these days from the admitted dopers. If he was
    really that good wouldn't he be out on the scene making money? I
    doubt he is that rich.

    Then there is _all_ the rumors, winks, and nods from inside the cross
    scene about that guy, but probably best not to go there as its all
    conjecture unless you have a picture of the needle hanging out of his
    leg. Plus, I only hear it second hand.

    Bottom line, I guess his appearance will be good for the series, so we
    can leave it at that.

    But its my PERSONAL opinion that (euro) cross is one of, if not the
    dirtiest cycling sports at this time.

    just my 2 cents.

    So where does this,

    "told the investigators that he planned to write a novel, and the markings
    in his diary were fictitious."

    place on the list of excuses?

    By far the best excuse I've ever heard. He certainly deserves the Nobel
    prize for literature.
