Maybe Colin has had a memory lapse then because he had a few things to say about LeMond a few years ago.

This source of your inside info is not entirely credible......
Must be the same source that said Boardman was clean at the height of the epo era ;)

About 11.10pm, Stephen Nolan show. Must warn you though, you'll want to throw stuff at the radio.
WHen you said that i expected a challenge but had no idea how bad it would be.
30 seconds in - "Lance Armstrong it is fair to say is the only global name in cycling before Bradley Wiggins"

Its not for me to share, but you go ahead and ask him if he ever made any specific claims about LeMond.

I dare say he had almost no contact with LeMond, but he made claims anyway.
lance has money waiting for him then...or...well...at least might have if he gets in quick...

Ha ha, yeah. I missed the start last night so tried to listen again this afternoon. Couldn't do it. Got past the "global name" tosh, but had to switch off about 20 seconds into Tony Doyle talking as my blood was already starting to boil.

Did you manage to listen to the whole thing?

Yeah, i didnt take doyle seriously at all, he didnt know what he was talking about himself, pausing mid sentence for no reason then changing the subject.

When asked how he knew there was a witch hunt against Armstrong, he just went on a 4 minute biography of Armstrong starting from 91, and got up to the 2002 TDF, before the interviewer interrupted him sarcastically - yeah its a great story.

The problem was the "hater" had very little idea himself and kept saying that all the witnesses were discredited dopers. Couldnt the guy do a little research before going on radio to represent the anti armstrong side.

Would laugh if the thing was replayed to doyle once the evidence comes out.

Yes, that was frustrating. I couldn't believe he let the "never tested positive" thing pass without a mention of 1999 or the ToSuisse allegation.

Oh well. It'll all come out eventually. And yes, I might personally email Tony Doyle when it does and ask for his updated comment.

Darryl, I was listening to the Armstrong debate on BBC 5 live last night. Being the BBC they have to be "impartial" and so had a "hater" debating with a "fanboy".

The fanboy was going for it. It was a masterclass. We had witch hunt, the French, never tested positive, most tested athlete in history, Floyd and Tyler are bitter with no credibility, USADA don't have authority. It was like he had a checklist of quotes.

It then turned out the fanboy was no other than Tony Doyle. I was extremely disappointed. As a kid in the early 90's with road and track aspirations I looked up to him. And here he was spouting this rubbish.

It then became clear why. He admitted he is friends with LA and has worked with him throughout his career through Nike.

Sad. Very sad.

Now his obvious lack of morals on this point has got me wondering. Is Tony Doyle yet another childhood inspiration for whom I need to put an asterix next to his performances?
How is it sad to support a friend? Is that not what a normal person would do? Hardly shows a lack of morals supporting a friend!

perpetuating a fraud isn't true friendship, at least in my book. I guess we have different definitions of the word.

Not saying he shod turn a blind eye but until threre is sufficient evidence given then you should stick it out and support them!

1. The USADA obviously feel they have sufficient evidence;

2. How is actively promoting lies and mis-truths anything other than morally corrupt?

You know what, I can't be bothered with this. There are plenty of other threads dealing with LA. It's served it's purpose for me, i.e. the (probable) truth about another childhood inspiration.

I'm not sure, but I think this may be one of the BBC interviews referenced.
http://www.steephill.tv/players/720/qt/?title=Lance+Armstrong+Analysis,+interviews+w/+David+Walsh+&+Doug+Ullman&dashboard=&id=velorooms.com/files/bbc_radio_five_live_ullman_slater_walsh_240812.mp3&yr=2012

I have yet to listen all the way through, but would love to hear Graeme Obree. Although I can not regard him as a balanced opinion, given his suicide attempts and various rather, ahem, unique ways of dealing with the vagaries of life, I still have to respect him for his cycling achievements and for just surviving in life. He's gone through a mill, he has.
Obree was interviewed the other day on bbc 5 live and was his usual frank and honest self. A breath of fresh air.

Gutted!! I think he's about the only famous(ish) from where i grew up in Asghford (middX) Bobby Davro's brother had a shop called Davro's Discounts as well. I once won a signed photo of TD in a local football club raffle!! Bad to hear about his LA stance. Funny you thought he was a fanboy and then he turned out to be TD.

We used to joke about TD having World Championship bands sewn onto his club jersey sleeves. Massive ego: I mean he won the World Championships but the need to remind people years later on a club run?

BTW (unrelated trivia) Bobby Davro took his stage name from the shop - it was his father's shop originally and the shop's name was a combination of his two son's names David and Robert (Bobby) :)
