    Don't look at the negatives of Vinos positive drug test. Look to the upside.

    Evans has a stage win!

    :D

    How at odds to all the other comments on Vino is that? Forget about someone testing positive. Blame the testers and the press. Interesting where his head is at. :rolleyes:

    is the problem with the way its being policed at the moment?

    at the moment its look, we took down a big name, were doing our job and winning the war....

    what i think they need to be saying is, we know your cheaating and were going to spank you and everyone you know when you get caught.

    more needs to put back on to the owners of the teams. make it a 5 year ban for the whole team for any rider with a positive a and B sample. directors, drivers, masseurs, secretaries the lot. ( the secretaries can come see me...
    ;) )


    make it so none of these lot can be involved at any level in the sport or companies that supply the sport for the duration of the ban. that way its in everyones best interest to stamp it out.

    It won't happen. Its not in cyclings interests to ban teams long term. No sporting body would risk multi-milliion dollar corporate sponsorships in that way. The race organisers are businesses and would freak. Any team bans if they come in are likely to be short term. If you threatened those hypocrite sponsors with long term bans they'd just move to other equally dirty sports who cover up PED use better, like soccer, tennis or athletics.

    or Australian Swimming.... ;)

    of course the economics of the situation mean it will never happen, but to stamp it out i think only the above action of making people more accountable than jsut to themselves is the only solution.

    yeah, it was bit out there, especially the rated 'M' bits :) -- and I didn't think it was a particularly funny episode.

    Apparently there's a new episode where they do a number on the Family Guy. How will I cope with 2 of my favourite shows up against each other? :p Divided loyalties

    The head of the UCI is Australia's own Anne Gripper.

    I think she is new to the position.

    Hail "the squirrel"!

    LOL, I dont know shit but my 2c...

    I reckon most folks are taking something which stretches the limits of cheating...whether it's subtle and approved like a prescription for asthma medicine to guzzling litres of horseblood from the TDF goblet itself....

    After my second vomit at track training this morning...pass the bloodbag;)
