For the most part they talk about doping in cycling, and Pereiro tries to talk to them and they shout him down and won't let him say a damn thing. He points out a few things that footballers do routinely that cause bans in cycling, and he points out that there are several things where, if a cyclist does something, the press are out there like vultures, but footballers are treated above that.

He mentions a few footballing positives (the main ones being Zinedine Zidane, Pep Guardiola and Carlos Gurpegui, whose case took on almost Valverde-like proportions being delayed and delayed). To which the moustachioed ****** next to him, who's been waving away and laughing off Pereiro's every point (if he even lets Pereiro get more than two words into it before shouting him down) starts counting it up, like "you can only think of 3". Pereiro goes on about the lack of testing and then points out bluntly, in as many words, that everybody at Barcelona is doping and everybody at Real is doping, but the authorities don't have to do anything about it because nobody cares. They bring up Fuentes, and he makes a lot of salient points about Fuentes and how Puerto has been treated and only cyclists named, and he hopes the truth comes out. To reiterate, Óscar Pereiro walked into the most chauvinist of football fan havens, and told them to their face that all their favourites are cheats.

If you want to see how football treats people who talk about doping, watch the first four minutes of the video. If you want to actually hear what Pereiro has to say, watch the last minute.
ya that guy with the mustache is pathetic!!! :mad:

near the end there actually 2 persons( 1 women and a guy) who seem to be agreeing with pereiro

Yea, but I bet they forget all about everything he said and stick their heads back up Guardiola's rear end on the next edition. Moustache man just walked out of a 70s cop show, and should walk back into it.

Yaya Toure consigned to a small headline yet he is in Man City and previously captain of the Ivory Coast. Disgraceful how he was passed over.

I think it was his brother Kolo Toure - a Journeyman defender on stupid money, 6 month ban when it should of been 2 years.

If he could play maybe it would be bigger headlines but he's pretty average and I dont think anybody cares.

Thx for that. I honestly thought it was Yaya.

I hope that it happens.

Ok with Hushovd and EBH it probably won't be super tough course but it won't be worse than average.
3200 meters of climbing so certainly not a course for pure sprinters. I've done this route several times myself and it's pretty tough. Moreover, at this time in Bergen it's very likely that it will be rainy and quite windy...Hushovd will be 38 though!
