Enough with the nit picking already! Listen to unca Oleg! Sounds like it's gonna be a menage a trois made in heaven between him, Bjarne and Bert.

Excellent analysis of Rabo's exit too.

These guys keep re-iterating what they really think of doping: "cycling's doping problems are exaggerated". This mentality is not going away any time soon.

wow - just the sort of views needed to turn cycling around- He really seems to appreciate the wind of change blowing through cycling and demanded for by cycling fans
+1 on excellent analysis of Rabo's exit too.

Exaggerated ....relative to other pro sports. That is what he really says. I didn't think folks would take issue with THAT.

Yeah, we all know he's dirty, along with Riis and Contador, but what he says here is just a factual statement. Leave it to CN.com to turn an out of context quote into a headline, though.

Fine, but even if it was a comparison, what's the point of making that statement? Cycling is better then?

Of course it's worthy of a headline! It's a staggeringly crass observation to be making at a time like this, and his own views shine through clear as daylight : "It doesn't matter...who really cares?"

As opposed to "cycling is cleaner" emanating from elsewhere, or the general idea that "everyone is cheating"?

Sorry, don't get your drift. Tinkoff's statement IMO is crass & insulting, and appears (as does the Spanish federation's voting in of Cerron) to be almost deliberately cocking a snook at those fighting serious battles elsewhere.

Parallel worlds, people like these are the enemy.

You mean like the ex USPS rider, now team manager, calling cycling "cleaner", or the serial dopers now banned claiming "everybody dopes"?

No, nothing like them obviously! What the hell are you trying to say?

You think Tinkoff's statement is impressive or something? Not noteworthy?
