Putin better step up and hand over a Gosdacha and a couple of medals.

I think a grand tour of Russia would be interesting. Riders disappearing during the race..............never to be seen again. Drink bottles spiked with polonium and riders queueing at feed zones to pay for exorbitantly priced food and drinks and also paying tolls to cross railway tracks. Just retire Dennis, write your book and spill your guts like all the others. They will need a new section in book stores soon.

Dope, make money. Write a book to confess, and make more money.

Seems legit

Never have I seen journalists more lost for words than at the at the end of the Olympic Road Race. Not sure what was funnier their reaction or the Colombian's look behind. I have to admit that Vino was so entertaining, it was hard to stay angry at him unlike some of the others. Of course Vino has nothing to confess ! It was all a misunderstanding.

It was a spanish conspiracy the whole tour 07. First they pushed him som he fell. Then they finished him off with faking his blood samples. And finished the whole tour of with getting the chicken thrown out so AC could win. It is pretty clear what happend if you ask me.

he was never involved in vienna, never heard of that one at least. those were weening, boogerd, rasmussen and thomas dekker.

and the mantova case isn't even a case but a joke and all they have is taxfraud. boohoo...

not saying menchov was clean, but he's as clean as anyone else in the peloton pretty much

lance took away from him at least 7 tours, at least...

gotta say denis will end his career like another silent legend,tonkov, maybe one or two stage victories and that's it.
but denis would never make rude gestures like him



by the way,in the photo,pavel is saluting lance of course who took away many of his wins. lance was such a nasty boy.

tonkov actually rode like a hero. menchov only did when he was very young. at rabo he became a cowardly disgrace of a cyclist that would basically never attack

I recall one attack at least on Alpe d'Huez in 2008. Of course it failed (he somehow crashed on wet pavement in a turn) but I'm certain there were others. He is a cautious rider that limits his losses, like so many others. I wouldn't necessarily categorize that as cowardly. More like riding within his means.
