    Hopefully the UCI and the ASO can get their diffences sorted or else he may have plenty of time for recovery.

    Hincapie is the national road champion and thus wears his nation's flag on his jersey. Some regard it as a curse.

    It is amazing how almost every thread gets twisted into a doping thread. George is one of the nicest guys in cycling. I have seen him on a couple of occasions and he has always been willing to sign autographs, pictures etc....

    Are you suggesting that 'nice guys' are not drug cheats?

    George Hincapie has a marketing image. It may--or may not be valid. He was chasing skirts when his podium girl date became pregnant. Apparently she did not dope---as no effective birth control hormones were in place.

    Willingness to sign autographs is meaningless. Barry Bonds does that.

    So what? It is the 'willingness for steroid injections' that matter.

    True. How could such a nice guy be a doper?

    That's how they test for EPO at U.S. races - if the rider is friendly and signs autographs he's negative, if he is a grumpy sod and ignores the fans then he gets an instant 2-year ban. :)

    And only one athlete, Tammy Thomas is LIFETIME banned. Every other USA athlete can return to cheating and work eventually.

    Her crime: she grew a mustache and the Department of Justice needed a MLB steroid goat.

    There are four invisible posts by Flyer in different threads. His name appears but no posts.
    No not FF, the real original Flyer.
    Twilight Zone stuff man!

    I don't know what's up. Flyer must be on some "Auto Ignore" list or something.

    I'm too new, I never knew the guy (Flyer). I couldn't have blocked something that was never there.
    I haven't blocked anybody. I figure if they can take my posts, I can sure as hell handle theirs.:D

    If only you could do Demi Moore....


    That doesn't sound right, does it? :confused:

    Oh well, screw Flyer, let's talk about Demi Moore. Hincapie will be okay.:D
