and Eva Maria B, and Big Pink T. All three of those handles were great ;) cant remember the one on roadbikereview

Big Pink T??
I have only ever been active on this site - so while we are thanking people, I sincerely thank all who contributed here.

I actually was suspicious but clueless when i joined in 2009, but learned pretty fast - ironically BPCs (and the rest of his usernames) continued defense of LA meant I got digging and the more you uncovered, the dirtier it got.

Quite amazing, ahem - how many documents that were in the 800 pages of the USADA decision I had already seen before.

Thoughts with Craig1985 and theswordman - they would have enjoyed this week.

Already done some time ago but very happy to restate again.

And other senior bro's who've added pieces to the puzzle.

And it's not over yet.

Yes thank you - I was educated on doping in the clinic starting 2009, and consequently so were friends and family willing or not! thanks again.

Thanks Race Radio for all the info over the last 2 or 3 years. Thanks also for answering the one question I posted (regarding UCI finances - didn't get to thank you at the time)

Thanks RR for all the insights, both here and on Twitter. LA and his doping aside, for me the real issues are the injustices done to people like Lemond, the Andreus, Emma O'Reilly, Kimmage, etc (man, that list has grown long...), clean riders, young riders, etc. In fighting that, RR is a true Champion!
 
Yup. After so many hints and good info leading up to the federal case, I actually felt some empathy for a random internet stranger, Race Radio, when the plug got pulled on the fed case at the last minute. And when he said 'it's not over, there's still USADA and other things', I had a hard time believing. But now, well, ding **** the witch is dead, isn't he? I'm feeling celebratory and smug. And happy for those who did work over the years opening up my eyes through posts here about the real character of cycling's most famous personality. Race was at the forefront of that.

Another longtime lurker, cheers :)


I watched LeMond win in 89 when I was just a kid..

Lance never smelled right, but I was skeptical of him ever having to face the music...

Thanks RR for keeping hope alive.

Thanks Floyd for being a critical force in breaking the omerta. The way you were done in, while so many others had their day in the sun, was and continues to be wrong.

Thanks to Betsy, Frankie, Cristophe, Greg, Swart, Strock, Matt, and all of the other voices out there who have been putting forth the truth for so long.

Thanks to the admins on this forum for creating a place where such talk is permitted, and for eventually doing the right thing in putting a stop to the disruptive voices that continually tried to obfuscate and drown out the truth.


Much love for the sport and all of its riders who have tried to ride clean.. it really is such a beautiful thing in its pure form.


Keep riding y'all.

Thanks folks. I appreciate it.

Certainly has been an active last few days.....and years.

Entering the 4th quarter with a big lead is always nice. :D Still some crazy days ahead but I look forward spending more time writing about Cross, big climbs, VAM, WATTS, wheels, gravel roads, and racing.....and not some bully from Texas.

Thanks for saying this. It's a lot more work than people realize, and hardly anyone seems to notice.
