I haven't abandoned any rider, just yet, and if I do it'll be for a good reason. Btw, now I get you what you meant: 'a blind fan'.

I think they invented a new anti-dope test:

Those who still support Armstrong failed it and those who don't support him avoided the test.

He's received 2 GT stages now because someone else tested positive, you'd think he'd care if someone was cheating him.

Love it!

Now with Vino as manager, he'd be riding even more-but he'll do the ones he pleases...

Let's just say that one can read another sub-forum in to the quote (Still love Nibbles, but it is quite funny)

He's still young, and doesn't talk like he's been briefed by PR.
I like his comments on Wiggins: they obviously have a lot of respect for each other.
The forthcoming Giro promises to be the stage race of 2013!

Lo Squalo setting the record straight, or is he?
Can't wait for the Giro 2013.

CN: But it wasn't a very clear message against doping, considering everything that has happened in recent weeks.

VN: Some journalists misunderstood what I was trying to say and have forgotten what I've said about doping in the last few years. I've always taken a stand when things happened. I've said that the riders who cheat have to be kicked out of the sport.

I struggle to understand everything that has gone on about Lance recently because he retired several years ago but his Tours have only been taken away now. They should have got stopped him years ago, not after five or six years. That's the point I'm trying to make.
