Adding my thanks as well. Someone said RR posted on RBR - love to know his handle. I started reading up on doping on RBR in late 2004 after the Hamilton positive. At some point, not sure when, that forum became toxic and I switched over to the Clinic - maybe 2009?

I remember after the Fed case was dropped it was basically crickets here for awhile (hence the "12" I think). And then RR posted that it was only halftime. I thought it was only wishful thinking.. was I ever wrong!

As an aside, don't know how any of you are managing to post. There is so much coming out to read I'm worn out just trying to keep up...
 
RR did us a great service of information from places it was hard to extract it.
Others helped immensely also.

Without some riders going full *** we'd not be here. USADA would have little to base a case on, and still be waiting to gather good leads.

I cant remember the handle, but I think RR was tired of the moderating and pro-Armstrong motivations of posters. Did not post too much. Think Eva Maria B was on cyclingforums too.

thing about RR, it sounded like he had multiple moles inside the inner sanctum, at Livestrong and Capital Sports and Entertainment. Woulda made StrongArm even more paranoid! Chapeau :D

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.

nicely done.

clinicians shouldn't be patting themselves on the back too long.

the events of the last few days, should be a launchpad for REAL reform, completely independent 3rd party testing, 3rd party results management, transparency, etc.

if we don't continue to demand these changes the cycle will repeat itself, of that I am sure.
I was referring to the Berlin Wall.

That was historic.

Armstrong's a blip on history. A skidmark.

Thanks

Thanks to Race Radio and everyone else on this board that enlightened me and educated me. I've been coming here for a long time. The things I have learned here I have shared with others who, because of a lack of information, supported Lance and company. Many have had their eyes opened as well. Of course, there are a few refuse to see - one of whom is a Texas native and two of who own bike shops stocked mainly with Treks.

Anyway, thanks.
 
I haven't read everything - it's been pretty hectic as you can imagine.
I've mentioned many of you - you know who you are - in various interviews I've done. When it wasn't popular, when backlash would be the ramification for standing up for me, you supported me because the truth mattered. I'm so appreciative and grateful for all your support. You were there when some family and "friends" weren't. Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you! Words can't adequately express how much it has meant to me over the years.
The truth matters, thanks for helping to be a force that refused to have it not matter.

I expect a primetime TV show "Fraudbusters" with you hosting very soon!

You come across very well on TV. Very well.

I think Betsy deserves her own thank you thread!

Thank you Betsy for having the courage and strength to do what so many failed to do.

BAAS.
 
Dom, here's Tygart's thread, a surprisingly low 18 responses, but then again everything has gotten buried in the many topics of discussion in the last 3 weeks.

Betsy, it's really great to see you post and acknowledge the importance of discussion like this in the information age. It's obviously much easier to try to speak out the truth when you're anonymous and it doesn't have serious repercussions for your life, so it's impossible to equate the work of those here with the stand you took that had very real consequences. You are really an inspiration, and thank you for holding to the truth all these years. It is just really good to see the truth be acknowledged as the truth from the broader public. Finally.

True, which always makes me laugh when posters in here say something pedestrian like..."do you really think anyone in the 'real' world reads the Clinic, or listens to the Clinic 12?" Clearly, there are more similarities than the reverse.

And, when Lance referred to the Clinic as the Echochamber. This Echochamber sure has been right, and no doubt helped create enough volume to attract attention... The Echochamber is now full of laughter too Lance.

Race Radio, you have undoubtedly worked long and hard to find the truth, broadcast it and assisted in the downfall of Lance the ******bag and many other associated slimeballs. Thank you.
