Sorry to see you are so dismissive of intuition and the Myers Briggs etc to understand how people click and how interactions have certain dynamics. Your loss.

Here's what time I get up. 4.30 AM 3 times a week for a 70-160 km bike ride. And 6.30 on other mornings to get the kids to school. I sleep in until 8 for my Sunday AM long run.

During the week I have you for morning tea.

You?

Haha. I'll let you have the last word on that, fair enough?

The topic is Sky. We're very far afield at this point. Back to the topic please.

ZTP indeed!
Vaughters knew White was the chief of the Jayco project of Jerry Ryan.

It was an expedient confluence.

Some of the Australian riders got a pretty sub-par program (racing program) or no program at all. Clear why.

White was jettisoned with a convenient justification. Vaughters is nothing if not strategic

ok, back to Sky.

I dont see much difference in Sky to other teams.

The bigger question is, will Sky temper their program, after dominance. I doubt it, this is pro sport. Winning is only that matters.

Froome might have to extend his risk quotient for a Contador and Andy battle

It certainly was a exhaustive interview by Walsh. I feel that I know so much more about Sky now.

I mean I was little suspicious before but now I know they're clean.

Seeing the open manner in which they dealt with Yates and co. makes me know Sky truly are clean.

Team Sky's leadership at the 2013 Tour de France is far from certain according to this year's second-place overall Chris Froome.

In other olympic news, London games made a ton of money and the UCI is set for a windfall profit. http://m.espn.go.com/extra/olympics/...WT&w=1cdqh&wjb

If you divide the estimated $400 million evenly, that's $15 million each sport. I don't know the formula, so the number could be $5-12 million. FYI, Pat McQuaid is Vice President of the International Association of Athletics Federations

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Associa...al_Federations

http://www.asoif.com/IFDirectory/Default.aspx

We know that Pat and Hein are about revenues first, then revisit my crackpot theory that the UCI assisted Sky in making the fairy tale of 2012 come true. They'd do it for a few million bucks just like they did it with Wonderboy.

Now, is that exactly the sports fraud story that breaks? Probably not. Did the UCI assist Sky's pursuit of wins in 2012 in exchange for a bigger Olympics payout? Very likely.
