I think 95% of ProTeam pros don't get called by the media for comment on these cases. I think the UCI knows this, and has their PR people get in touch with certain "friendly" riders to help manage the perception by the press. Within an hour of that story breaking, Evans was giving quotes that virtually matched what McQuaid was saying later in the day. Both were echoing what AC said from the beginning.Ninety5rpm said:I'd have to see the statements in question to decide for sure, but I don't believe it's that organized. The statements like those made by Evans that are being discussed in this thread seems to fall out logically from a few basic propagandistic notions that seem to be promoted by everyone in the peloton, and then echoed by the press and fans. Again, they pander to the ignorance.
"Cycling [bosses] are doing the right thing to try to clean up the sport". -Cadel Evans, towing the Omerta party line.
