Hincapie just tweeted

I can confirm to you I never spoke with "60 Minutes." I have no idea where they got their information.

As I've said in the past, I continue to be disappointed that people are talking about the past in cycling instead of the future.

As for the substance of anything in the "60 Minutes" story, I cannot comment on anything relating to the ongoing investigation.

He doesnt say that its not true, just that he didnt speak to 60 minutes
 
My long weekend of hateraid...

"This is a great day to be hater" (quote from a forum member, I forgot his username but I want to give him credit for the line).

A four-day weekend of this stuff, beginning yesterday and culminating on Sunday night.

I'll be wrapped in my yellow Livestrong Snuggly with an ice cold 6-pack of Ultra as I watch how the most tested athlete in the world rode on the same team full of dopers, against other riders who were doped, beat them handily, yet never doped himself.

Assuming an indictment. Assuming that the doping evidence is relevant to any indicted offense. You're thinking too far ahead! Let's enjoy the moment. Plus: The sponsorship hemorrhage is about to begin! I'll enjoy that.

True that, but this sport is BS anyhow. If LA loses who wins, Jan, Basso, Klodi…. LOL

What, exactly, do the "media" have to answer for?

I think the media have done a pretty good job of exposing the Armstrong myth (See Kimmage, Walsh, the Wall Street Journal, etc. etc.)

Don't ever expect a beat reporter from a newspaper or cycling web site to take on the cause of doping. That's just foolish.

Fair point and I agree with the highlighted.

But I am on about the Main Stream Media who helped build the myth (and the brand) and never investigating the numerous rumors about Armstrong.

Even Betsy Andreu was reluctant to speak with CBS recently because of what they had done in the past.

Andreu says that 60 Minutes approached her and Frankie about the story they were working on about Armstrong and she initially told them to "take a hike."
"I asked them, "Where have you been all these years?" Everyone has been so gentle with Lance. I grilled them."
Andreu says that once she realized they were serious and had done their homework, both she and Frankie agreed to be interviewed. It's not clear what, if any, material from their interviews will appear on Sunday's show.

The latest tweet.

That is a scathing denial of the validity of the information 60 minutes is airing on Sunday...

This has to be the coup de gras. I don’t know how LA can survive this.

I’m not surprised that George testified this way, at all. He’s slowly turning himself into a businessman with his clothing line, and for the last five years has been trying to find capital investors for his Pla d'Adet resort. Tell the truth now, and he can likely come out okay, go down with the ship and it’s likely a really long ride to the bottom.
Well said. Besides being the legal and honourable thing, it's also a smart thing to be telling the truth right now.



As for GH's tweet, nobody said that he spoke to 60 minutes. It's a good way to deflect attention that I am sure he really does not want (which I understand completely). 60 minutes has another source who apparently has the inside scoop on what GH said during his testimony.

Yes, it is perfectly fine.

I just thought it would be improper to disclose the grand jury testimony of one witness to another witness, so they won't compare notes to make sure they are not caught up in a lie. Maybe Lance will not be a witness? duh?

Anyway, it would seem the indictments will be coming down soon.
Be a shame to waste all these townspeople with torches lol.
The Feds realize this I would think...

Looks like it might be a long list of offenders and indictments. Do they have space to squeeze your name in there somewhere?

For those who live in the USA or know the justice system there, i am a little bit concerned now.

My Q: Can Hincapie backpedal now or does it count what he said before the GJ? May Armstrongs mafia (to use Hamiltons words, which i now fully understand) gave death threats to either Hincapie and/or his family. It´s possible, since his whole life/income/companies depend on this.

Thanks upfront

Yea, no kidding. I am pretty sure pitch lasts awhile though, so its just the wood that may rot.
