This is the part that I like. The stupid excuses.

Aww, FFS! I'll bet Och knew nothing. Or maybe he just felt old and tired.
Humm, let me guess. When Och was asked to comment he said "Blah, Blah, Blah" and "ahh Shucks"

If Cadel is implicated he should ask for refund.:D

Actually, maybe Sven really does need EPO. A soigneur's job is tough and physically demanding. Boosting the hemo would make scrubbing chamois and making sammies so much easier. Now there's a good application of a PED if I ever saw one.

What does "original case dates to 2009" mean?

It is no big surprise. Cadel has a history of being on dirty teams.

Contador has to be one happy Spaniard. What is a little Clen compared to TB500 and a truckload of EPO. It takes some of the heat off him.

Bye bye Cadel?
HELL NO! Only the "clean Cadel" will race this year's Tour. Corrupt to the core UCI may just ignore this & "sweep it under the rug"....he he he

LOL. You are right. Not that that was the only wrong thing he did anyway.

Going to bed. I expect this thread with 4,000 posts tomorrow talking about Cadel. It will be hard to read. Hopefully we will have an english version of the story.:)

Sometimes schadenfreude is funny. Now, I'm just getting sick of this endless train wreck.
Note to all of you pros:
Cut this 5h!t out. You're killing the most beautiful sport in modern history.
I think the whole team is going to be expelled. So much for Hincapie tieing the record for most TDFs ridden.

At the end of the day:

The seizure occurred in 2009
He was a part timer who could have been selling the sh!t to anyone
BMC will distance themselves from him and his actions

An alternative theory: 2009

The courier failed to deliver
Cuddles was left without his vitamin injections
Suddenly the hills became a lot steeper
"why am I being dropped by sprinters?!"
At the end of the day 30th place and 45 minutes down is pretty good riding clean!

Of course the Tour was well over when he was caught so maybe he was just late on delivery in July
