Default Review on doping within Cycling Australia

Interesting news that former Supreme Court Judge, James Wood, will be conducting a review of Cycling Australia

http://www.katelundy.com.au/2012/11/...ycling-review/

Do you think anything will really be uncovered?

If the report of the NSW Police Royal Commission is any indication, the inquiry will be very independent and very thorough (even resorting to intimidation and giving people their written testimony to agree to and sign...different times I know).

The telling factor however will be the terms of reference and whether they limit the inquiry in any way.

only announce an inquiry when you know the result before you undergo it

I would like to see the terms of reference to explicitly include:

- any Australian citizens (or dual etc nationality citizens), whether rider, team manager, medical staff, or any team member in any paid or voluntary capacity
- any Australian (see above) sponsor executive involved in deciding to sponsor/maintain sponsorship of any Australian rider, team manager, medical staff, or any team member in any paid or voluntary capacity

Lets take out any ambiguity and be clear about what it means to carry an Australian passport. Many Aussies overseas now....

is cryptic. Because he lead that inquiry, as you no doubt are implying, are one and same. Think it is absurd to make it about cycling, when it is really about PEDs in professional sport. Touretski is the gateway, not Hodge, not White, not Dajka, not Jamieson, not cycling.

I can't see it achieving much in 4-6 weeks, especially in the run-up to xmas. No time to investigate anything, so it will be relying on established information. All I can see it doing is reviewing procedures. Hopefully I will be proved wrong, but this smells like an ****-covering exercise, not reform.

One of the speakers at a New Pathways for Procycling conference, James Mazanov phd, spoke to me about AUSADA, and how they take a leaf out of the Don Catlin testing paradigm. We dont wanna catch out heroes. But Justice Wood, if he can take on power like the 80s, I dont think a ragtag virtual peloton will have much push on him. Hodge, perhaps he offers a better insight, but Whitey will keep some in reserve, just like Floyd. Not a full truth, because it neglects comprehensiveness. Ofcourse Wood has an entire career to see thru charlatans I dont doubt.
_____________unhappy the land that has no heroes

as VeloDude hints, there may be reason to have confidence with Wood's past form. Whether or not he has the correct terms of reference is another matter. They need to pick up that red-head step child rower come lawyer Coates and throw him from a moving train in a chaff bag.
