Fascinating how small the cycling community is.

Gary Sutton, NSW Institute of Sport's head cycling coach.

Brother of Shane Sutton, head coach team Sky.

Father of Chris Sutton, team sky rider.

All from St George cycling club, together with Vinnicombe and Bates. And Matt White.

Small world.

Phill Bates is Gary and Shane's brother in law. His comments about Armstrong are most likely straight off a UCI script. Phill is also close with Jan Ullrich so most likely knows the real deal with Armstrong.

Vinnicombe knows lots, has had time on the Aus sprint team and plenty of time in Europe.

MV lived in Europe with a training partner, the French trackie in the 80s 90s who went to become a dealer to riders in Nice. Philippe Boyer. http://www.google.com.au/search?sour...Philippe+Boyer

MV will tell you himself, so dont take my word. I could well have my facts wrong.

Like MV said in the interview, you have to pony up when the big boys bring their guns.

Cycling Australia has urged former top rider Martin Vinnicombe to cooperate with an investigation into doping in cycling, responding to the 1988 Olympic kilo silver medallist’s assertions that a current high profile individual in the sport helped him receive an injection during his career.

The 47 year old made the claim this week to ABC’s 730 Report. “There are still people existing in cycling at the moment, in powerful positions, (who) at one point in their careers were exposed to doping and knew about doping methods,” he said then.

“It was known you'd have a sudden drop in blood pressure, therefore you needed someone there to assist you,” he said. “At that time [name bleeped out] was a person I trusted and thought he would assist me and he did so. He was present in the room.”

While the programme didn’t name the person concerned, it stated that he is now “a senior Australian cycling figure.”

I wonder if he'll tell the story about the official from a certain cycling federation and their shopping trip to Belgium?

It's not my story to tell. He could just be another one of these riders who think they know stuff but when it comes to it, don't.
