Hey here a great idea, maybe they could allow a special super secret https web page for pro riders to email in doping questions!

Candidates will be receiving a phone interview to demonstrate their level of skill and a proficiency test on advanced Lance Armstrong topics.

Here it is, the UCI's state of the art, no expense spared doping hotline. The hardware was contracted out to the lowest bidder, who just happened to be related to McQuaid. It is installed in McQuaid's lawyers' office so whistleblowers can be sued without Fat Pat having to waddle across the street to order the lawyers to initiate legal proceedings.

I just hope they make the number public so that the clinic can call in and report everybody.

Seriously though, how do they give out the number and who gets it? I, at least, want to call it every day to report that Rasmussen and Landis and Ricco doped.

Ashenden says UCI-run anti-doping hotline would lack credibility

“For the UCI to urge riders to come forward with information now is like a fox with feathers in its mouth urging the next chicken to come down off its roost.”

Just a lie. He never came forward. His admission was an interview. The next and only punishment he got was from the cycle fed after his grand jury. The guy is like the rest never told his employer, the UCI and USAC had multiple written and audio accounts of Frankie saying he broke the rules. He said it over and over, nobody did anything. 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?

Interesting.

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?

Interesting.

So you are saying that it was Frankie who had the double standard?

Dave.
