Not waiting to find out whether he is found guilty before you conclude that?
It's not just his ex-wife, a female friend and even his own sister have made similar accusations.

From the article: "In February 2020, Cipollini was in court for an unrelated 2017 incident, facing allegations that he beat and threatened his sister, Tiziana Cipollini, during an argument about the custody of his pet chihuahua. Those charges were later dropped. "

I'm not saying he won't be found guilty, just that denouncing him on the basis of him being on trial is scarcely giving respect to the principle of innocent until proven guilty.

And those accusations that you cite were not tried in court, so we only have his sister's word against his. None of us know whether it happened.

ed. Oops, wrong thread!
It may be the wrong thread but I don't think there is anything wrong with describing the scenery once in a while. The course, the speed, the weather, the scenery... for those who can't watch every stage live I think we're just trying to walk them (Sandisfan) through the experience while we are watching the races live. At least that's what I'm trying to do, anyway.

Having said that back to actual cycling news now. :)

I'm glad TVP finally has the courage to keep the race to themselves. If you want to see the balloons, go to Poland (or get a VPN). People who pay for subscription sites always think they're entitled to everything they pay for, don't they?
