Freddy Viaene?

I just finished watching 'The Road to Paris', and was watching the interview segment with Lance and Freddy Viaene.

That whole interview with him and Lance has me seriously questioning if he might be/have been another Willy Voet - pre 1998.

I know he was with 7-Eleven, Motorola, Postal, and Discovery and was Lance's soigneur for years.

Anyone know where he's at now, and why he's no longer with Lance/Bruyneel?

I'm sure he has a lot of stories he could tell.

Just curious.....

Viaene was the guy with the hypodermic in Landis' but t cheek.

He went from USPS to Phonak with Landis, and then he went to Quickstep. Some noise out of Quickstep that some were unhappy with him coming on board. Why Lefevre hired a guy with his reputation. Well, ofcourse, he was running a program Lefevre, but you need your guys under control, and not renegades and risking it. With Dr Van Mol, he would have had the supervision.

So, wonder if he stuffed the dosage on Floyd in the 2006 Tour.

Now he has his own massage oils, balms, embrocations. Veritable alchemist. It was advertising on Cyclingnews a year back. Something like "Freddy's $hit"!

Quickstep? Dang that's a perfect fit isn't it.

I have to wonder if Lotto's lackluster results in the classics have to do with a comparitively lighter medical program.

I can't help it. I don't want to put you on ignore just because I want to see what sort of mongoloid nonsense you will spout next.
But then I slow down to look at traffic accidents too. It's one of my worst traits, I'm not proud of it but there you go.......

Freddy's Choice Balms

"As head soigneur for Discovery, US Postal, Motorola, and 7-Eleven, Freddy Viaene is considered the best in the business."

Freddy Viaene, from Izegem in Belgium, has been with the US Postal Team since its inception and with the Motorola, and 7-11 Cycling Teams prior to that. His five years of study educated him in all aspects of sports massage and nutrition. He is also a certified personal trainer. Freddy has worked with major cycling figures for over 17 years.

As head soigneur for the US Postal Team, he manages a crew of three and is responsible for keeping the team in winning condition while they are training and racing. Top cyclists have learned that proper massage with the right combination of ingredients is their secret weapon in maintaining injury free condition during grueling races and, particularly, the Tour de France.

An important part of maintaining muscles in top condition and injury free are the balms applied before, during, and after training and racing sessions. Freddy has developed his own balm formulas for all riding conditions. He brought these proprietary formulas to SportsBalm, Europe's premium muscle care brand, and carefully supervised the process of creating Freddy’s Choice to ensure that it met his strict specifications.

The result is a line that brings together all of his experience in producing winners. Now, Freddy's Choice is available to all athletes - cyclists, runners, swimmers, triathletes - as well as massage therapists and personal trainers.

Freddy’s Choice doesn’t stop at the skin. It is scientifically designed to penetrate deep into the muscles to warm, protect and repair and keep you in shape to achieve your personal best.

These products are carefully chosen to protect against conditions that most often slow an athlete—heat, cold, sun, chafing, and after-event muscle repair. They contain natural herbs that people have known and trusted for centuries. Science based on muscle therapy is just as important as nutrition in maintaining and improving performance, a fact well known among top athletes.

His 'F1 Team' can take credit for maybe 1% of the 10% post cancer gain that they refer to in this documentary, but Michele Ferrari and his programme, I would imagine, gives him the remaining 9%. Just my opinion.....

You're right that Ferrari's legendary training programme was hugely important too - he was the best in the business. We know it has nothing to do with doping because he was doped before Ferrari and didn't win the tour. It was only after he dropped the dope and turned to science and a proper training programme did it all come together, helped by his new mental approach from the cancer experience. LA is proof you can win clean.

What have you been doing in your spare time. One thread to the next, more ridiculous statements. I'd largely assume your were being sarcastic here, but alas your previous posts suggest you are being very serious. (Note I'm shaking my head). Didn't your mother tell you not to drink the bong water? Or did the doctor mix your headache pills with your psych meds?

Your above quote is not to be taken seriously, for a reason you won't have recognised. You admit Lance was doping prior to his cancer bout. Then say he got help from Ferrari after he was better and added a proper "cough cough" training program. With the power of positive thinking "the Secret", thus you lay claim of proof LA won clean. If all this was your attempt at being serious you should have taken the time and liberty to state Lance stopped doping. You didn't. There's my free advice for the day. You simply implied LA doped but wanted to get better and did so thanks to a nice Italian doctor who has better things on offer than epo, masking agents and blood doping. Nice humour on your behalf.

Also why post a message to let the others (you know who) know that you've blocked them? Your detractors daily lives do not revolve around you. You're not getting lonely are you?

Interesting.... Why do you say Lance doped before Ferrari?

If my memory serves me, Lance has stated on numerous occasions that he's never used PED's.

He even testified under oath in his trial with SCA Promotions that Betsy Andreu and Frankie Andreu were lying when that testified that they heard him tell his doctors he had used EPO, growth hormone, cortisone, steroids, and testosterone!

Another thing, remember the cortisone traces in his urine in the '99 Tour ----> Saddle sore cortisone cream, right?

I'm confused.

Why would you think he was doping before Ferrari with only marginally success, but then he cleaned up and won 7 Tours in a row?

That's not even logical?

And, if you say he doped, pre-Ferrari, that makes him a liar with zero credibility???


Explain your logic.....

After looking after Floyd and lance Freddy can't get a job in the business. He is selling his snake oil to various rub and tugs. He also occasionally posts anti Lemond BS as Radio Freddy on a blog.

Freddy works for Lotto now. He joined them last winter. He was brought in especially to work with Gilbert. Has he been caught by the winds of change?

Freddy V's nickname is Radio Freddy. He is the only guy in cycling I have ever met with that nickname. BKW also often had team car video from Disco. I have not talked to him for a while but I would be surprised if it is not him.
