He can't be that stupid, he's managed not to get caught all these years.

I don't like being taken for a fool, and yet that's exactly what he's doing.

"Redneck" -as he's affectionately known,
Just out of interest is that normally a compliment from where you're from? I was always under the impression it wasn't and normally applied to people from the south in the middle of nowhere that were a bit backward. Which actually sums up his views quite well - retarded..

Sounds like he has his sights on Phil Liggett's job.

Horner is only a bike rider. What else is he going to do? He is truly a representative of his profession. It's a filthy job, and Horner does it.
I didn't know it was possible to ride a bicycle if you don't have any vertebrae.

Oh, how about tell the truth?

I didn't make that post. But Chris lives on the outskirts of Bend (or used to). That used to be the "red" part of the state, but it's become kind of clique and a great outdoors town with skiing, hiking, riding, etc. between the ranch land. I imagine the term is used in a humorous, endearing way towards him, given to him by city kids.

No it wasn't your quote it's from the CN interview - just wondered if you had any insight on it as you said you were from his home state. And you did so thanks. Still think my interpretation is closer though

Don't laugh to much about it. If Horner retires without getting busted, we very well may be watching Bob Roll and Horner together at the TDF for years to come.

Some people are just a lost cause....and this clown is one of them. Does he know how idiotic he sounds....or is he worried that lance will hang him if he doesnt make himself look like a tool......its mind boggling how some people come to the conclusions they do. Change cycling ,start with Horner.He gets the tool of the week award by a country mile.
