Officially, he isn't banned for doping. Besides, why would his analysis only be insightful when he's not serving a suspension?

If people have such a problem with Alberto appearing on Eurosport why didn't you just change channels? I'm pretty sure no one forced you to watch it.

Cycle Chic, apparently you don't, but a lot of people do care about what Alberto has to say. Out of the current peloton he is arguably the one with the most experience when it comes to winning GTs and stage races. The ban he's serving now changes nothing about that fact. Seriously, what is your problem with Alberto?

I suggest you write to WADA and recommend they consider inserting a gagging clause on banned athletes.

That might not hurt actually, with an execption made for those who've fully acknowledge guilt, and helped the investigation to satisfaction of WADA. Oh, and spend a signficant part of their ban actively fighting doping and educating youngsters. That is, if they wish to return to cycling after their ban. If they violate the gagging order, well...a year added per infriction.

You must be joking.

Define overacting.

It intrigues me how some people can talk really bad about Alberto only to later say that they "kinda like" him, or "don't mind" him.

"Infriction". A catchy word - I'm going to start using it tomorrow, although I have yet to decide on a suitable context.

For anyone interested in what was said, among other things, he suggested Cav would have other things on his mind (TdF and Olympics) and would probably not finish - cut to Cav trying not to directly agree, saying he never goes into a race thinking he won't finish but it would depend how hard the last week was.

Contador talked about how hard it is to train alone; he's got a custom-made shirt with good will messages from his fans printed on it. About losing last year's title: he wished Scarponi well and hoped he'd win the race in a different way this time.

Scarponi a bit embarrassed about the whole thing, and another guy (possibly Giro director?) said Contador shouldn't have lost his title as he was clean last year and passed all their testings.

Good boy Scarponi. I may just love him again.
