When the rest of the planet got on Armstrong's case then light bulbs went on atop the official heads and Andreu is finally punished. What more did he need to do? Shoot up in front of them? The silly part is Yates,White and others have all stepped away because of their doping and national team junior involvement, but Frankie shouldn't have to because he told a newspaper he was a doper, it was no secret. It may be the flavor of the day, but all the other doped riders turned managers are all employed. Good message to the paying public. He should post a copy of the letters or emails between himself and the UCI. Who wrote first? Did he admit to them he doped?
So if someone publicly admits to doping, you are suggesting that it doesn't count if he didn't email the UCI?
Interesting. Too bad there was no doping hotline, I guess.
Interesting in the context of the Vrijman report that solely relied upon - unverified - newspaper articles as its source of information.
So, *unverified* news services counted for the UCI then, but not for Frankie?
So you are saying that it was Frankie who had the double standard?
