    What a whiner and a loser. Disrespects the national jersey because he didn't get his way. Congratulation to the Giro organization for not giving into this media loving whore. Good poster boy for the Armstrong haters - he represents them good.

    I did read the same statement, it is true Zomegnan did say it. Perhaps Lance did in fact prerequisite his participation in the giro with the exclusion of Simeoni. Or Zomegnan is looking for an out. I remember last year, they excluded Garzelli's team, which had a very good previous season. 2000 giro winner Garzelli himself winning two stages at the giro 2007, and the team and Garzelli were off to a great start. This year he has them back in. It is pretty entertaining that Simeoni returns the champions jersey though. What balls!

    From a "news" point of view, or rather tabloid interest, it would have been more profitable to invite Simeoni, just to benefit from the daily gossip ("simeoni spitting on Armstrong",..."Armstrong escape cancelled by simeoni chase...hehe, cool this one)
