Just in comparison: Roger Federer was tested 11 times in 2012 i read in a swiss newspaper.

Daniel Benson on McQuaid and Danielson

Find it comical that cycling fans in the US boo Mcquaid but are happy to see Danielson start cross races

VN: What's your opinion on the Armstrong situation?

GC: If the case and all the stuff coming out right now about things that happened ten years ago helps to makes cycling cleaner, then it's a good thing.

All the people who looked up to him have also a right to know the truth, even if they probably all knew before.

The bad thing is that now the media reflects an impression of cycling and the organized doping which is ten years old - and it stays in the mind of the public.

There are hundreds of cyclists with good intentions who are riding now; it's not fair on us.

VN: Has it made the German media even more 'anti-cycling’?

GC: They are not really anti-cycling. Ten years ago when Telekom was so successful, it was the flagship of the German nation and the journalists were riding the crest of the beautiful wave, called success.

They were not objective in this time, just as they aren't now. Now cycling is the whipping boy, so they write about doping – it’s just a simple thing.

If we had a £1 for every rider who has spouted that rubbish.

Being zero tolerance to doping & employing Honchar is like being you're zero tolerance to doping & employing Neil Stephens. Pointless

That's really harsh and unfair. Poor Stephens was just in the wrong place at the wrong time....five or six times.

This can't be right. The clinic 12 told me Kittel is a coward and possibly racist who only picks on unknown turkish riders. No way was he one of like 4 riders worldwide who criticised LA and AC. Must be some kind of hoax...

The "Clinic 12" thing is great for a joke, but when you take it beyond that it doesn't make you look good. Not all respected Clinic regulars hold the same opinion on anything, they're not a hivemind, and Kittel's stance has been mentioned in that other thread.

Well, actually there are approximately 12 posters in the clinic who hold very similar opinions, i.e, they all dope and everything is considered a sign of doping who also happen to be the most vocal in here and I am sure this is who JV was referring to.

I think most people could name 6 or 7 of the top of their heads but would have to think about the rest.

The Clinic 12 are batting north of .95 when it comes to spotting sketchy riders.
