One of the C's in MPCC stands for Credible. They might as well take that C out now.

One of the agreements is that a member team can't sign former dopers.

That means Vinokourov can't do a comeback (not that they'd actually care about the rules anyway)

Last week, I posted somewhere in the Clinic, that one day, even Astana will be MPCC.

Cycling is changing, consistantly... The ultimate goal seems to be to reach the highest level of hypocrisy.

Edit: Just wanted to re-open this thread, accidentally clicked the first instead of last page. First post is about Moreni. Just in case anyone knows, what´s he doing today? I remember he paid a 1 yr salary to UCI, was the only of the 2007 guys to do so, and did this in order to return to cycling.

Their iconic team manager was convicted for blood doping, never admitted and never apologized. He is currently involved in a race fixing scandal as well. He is not the person to give a team credibility.

Take it to the Clinic, folks. Not here.

Guardini clarifying he's not one of them. Namely, he's not one of those who are pulled by cars to finish within the time limit, but rather a rider who finishes a mountain stage with his own legs.

Quote:
Su mayor éxito lo consiguió en el Giro 2012, con una victoria de etapa, aunque no fue fácil llegar hasta la 18ª etapa. "En el Giro mi rendimiento fue escaso en la montaña. He sufrido, llorado. Incluso llegué el último, solo, separado del grupo. Pero, con toda honestidad, yo siempre lo hice con mis piernas.Y después llegó el escenario de la victoria en Vedelago por delante de Cavendish. Mi satisfacción más bella hasta ahora

Funny that the next thing he said was his best victory was when he beat Cavendish in Vedelago. One thought led to another?
