    Hi guys,

    Who would you pick in your all time drug fuelled best team.

    The members of this team have to be 100% proven junkies!

    I'll start with mountain climber Richard Virenque

    I'd take virenque as well.

    Definitely Indurain as well.

    Of riders actually caught, Ullrich, Basso, Vino.

    Kloden (anybody who doesn't see his guilt is blind). Armstrong.

    Pantani for mountains.

    cmon, kloden? of all the other riders to pick from he has never been mentioned in any scandal, unlike the other guys you singled out. youre convicting him based on association alone.

    my pick: armstrong would have to go down as the best doper of all time

    Armstrong, Heras, Landis, Mayo, Museeuw, Virenque, Zulle, Millar and Basso.
    There's my nine man Biotech squad.

    Little Tuler Hamilton could be the publicity agent for the team (after all he fooled a lot of the people........a lot of the time).

    Don't take these things to heart, Klodi. It's just not good for you.

    The rate of improvement in Armstrong demands that he be picked instead.

    If it were Ulle vs. Armstrong I would also... Armstrong usually rode better.

    I'd drop one of the other choices and take Ulle AND Armstrong however.

    No, I picked him for more than just 'association'. Anybody who leaves a team like t-mobile, where he was a shoe in for '#1' absolute leader, to go play joint fiddle with a new team of long suspected riders, while at the same time your old team goes on the warpath against doping, sets off a big red flag in my book.

    Like I said in my original post, anybody who thinks he is clean is blind. To ride like he did with a broken tailbone in this tour...well, sounds alot like some other riders...vino, tyler?

    That's why he's so good.

    Okay, I didn't realize we were picking entire teams.

    I'm going to roll with 2001 USP team: LA, Landis, Hamilton, Andreau, Vaughters... They proved they could work as a team. I think you get Vino and Ulrich on the same team and throw in Mayo, Greg Lemond and EM, you'll have a clash of egos.

    Nope, USP. Tried and true.

    If we're going for an All Star team - a sort of late 90's NY Rangers of cycling, here we go...

    Armstrong
    Riis
    Ullrich
    Basso
    Virenque
    Rasmussen
    Vino
    Zabel
    Heras

    I'm not sure how good team chemistry would be (no pun intended).

    Pfizer would be the sponsor and Viagra would be the payment for the sprinters who went too early.

    Excellent list.

    But I'd pull one of them (probably Ras... you don't need both him and Tricky Dick) and add Axel's dad. If for nothing else then to see LA carrying water bottles. :)

    ds - saiz (hands down)
    assistant ds - bruyneel
    soingnuer - willy voet (oh hell yeah!)

    gc- pharmstrong

    lieutenant- delgado (thats a throwback. he was a great domestique for indurain. put him on some modern day juice and the fucker would fly)

    sprints- zabel (cipo was never caught, but he would get the nod if he was)

    mountains- heras, pantani

    utility- landis

    ttt- zulle

    stages- vino

    laslty, someone like sean yates would be ideal. any ideas on a guilty juicer with characteristics similar to the animal? id need a juicer who could reel in a break, take long ass pulls and be a good lead out man for zabel.
