Professionally he would be advised how to deal with these "demons".

I expect he would now be limited to keeping a troll diary. Alphabetically entering the names of trolls who he will deal with after his redemption phase.

Redemption will occur (according to the hopeful Markvw).

He must be hating now that “anti-doping” is in fashion. Even Contador is in on the act!

he can keep the troll diary but it won't do him much good. No one id going to listen to anything he says anymore.

I think his only way is to take down the UCI. He'll get some kudos for doing that.

For that reason alone Wiggo,s credibility on the issue, Is, in my book, a big fat zero.

So, "talent" means what exactly? Without the drugs, the teammates on drugs and the UCI's help he wasn't going to win any Grand Tours. He couldn't even close the deal on a small-time stage race in the U.S. whe he was off the peak doping cycle.

I love how you drop the vague but official-sounding "knowledgeable guys." Is that Ed Coyle? John Wilcockson maybe?

Oh, yeah Wiggo is better. No doubt. Someone might want to ask what role the Pat and Hein had in creating the TdF/Olympics fantasy though.

I know he wants to spend time with his family but he needs to lose the invisible backpack of sadness and come out swinging!

I agree he must be fuming, especially wrt UCI, and more generally wrt the hypocricy of those who say Lance betrayed them. As if they didn't know.

Exactly.

Post of the day! The guy can't even keep the family man facade going for a week. He'll be back to embarass/imprison himself if he's already making training excuses. Go Wonderboy! You are a fighter! Have Thom whisper sweet nothings in your ear while you turn the pedals in anger! Grrr!!

Interested to see when the Sky scandal breaks and how much disgrace hangs on Wiggo after a full season of ridiculous 2012 performances and follow-on righteous indignation.

Maybe Wiggins will be a smart doper and go off the sauce since he already achieved his goal. He could have a sudden decline like Sastre. He could make a decent showing at his next GT, ride out his contract with subpar performances, and then retire.
