If this article would be read to full house audience of Clinic readers, a non-english speaking bystander might think it was stand-up comedy, from the audience's response.Bag_O_Wallet said:Did anyone else hear crickets in the reactions to Armstrong's retirement article on CN???
In that case virtually all pro cyclists over the past 15 years may as well keep looking forward then because the same would apply to most of them lolBenotti69 said:i doubt he'll have either. a 'professional' cyclist means 20 years of doping and cheating, not much of a life to look back on if you ask me. try telling that to your kids, truthfully.
Stephen Swart realised that very quickly after he retired.
You know the Italians dont have that, it is inherent in their society to try and in, even by deceptions. so they wont.Yeahright said:In that case virtually all pro cyclists over the past 15 years may as well keep looking forward then because the same would apply to most of them lol
My thumb is down to Lance Armstrong, who retired this week from pro cycling. If that's news to you don't feel bad, Armstrong's announcement wasn't just quiet it was suspiciously quiet. Maybe it's only a coincidence that it came a few weeks after the latest allegations that Armstrong, the 7-time Tour de France champion, was also an expert doper. Armstrong's cancer fighting foundation has done a lot of good, in part because most people assume his career wasn't a big drug fueled lie. There is an ongoing U.S. Federal investigation to sort that out and now that Armstrong has time on his hands, he should do what his disciples hope he'll do: lawyer up and sue these false accusers.
If Feschuk was a cycling affecionado, he would have realized this. Armstrong is now a product, a marketing Icon, more than a cyclist. He is no longer top tier, a contender.pedaling squares said:

Dammit! Why is fanboy, chamois sniffing stuff like this allowed to be published? All publications should run everything by the CN forum true cycling fans to make sure in conforms to the only one true line!
