It will be hard to find out who the other investors are but it would be interesting if some journalists/Federal agent would at least ask.

If you want the correct contact details PM me

Thanks for the thread starter. Long overdue. Have taken the liberty to broaden OP to UCI nepotism in general.

The media coverage bit also interests me, for example Eurosports Sean Kelly's connection to Pat McQuaid. It's not exactly as if Sean stands our for his commentating skills...

I can't imagine how much dealings must of existed but has yet been found out. I bet this web goes deep. But as we know, Armstrong was at least smart enough to do many of his dealings in cash. Remember Hamiltons book and all the money that was being transported around in the private planes

The perfect partner for Harmon would be a gag and a roll of parcel tape.
