I found Daniel Benson's interview with Gerard Vroomen very interesting. He touched on the return on a sponsor's investment being great despite not winning the race, which is relevant to the a rider's motivation to dope. Also some good perspectives on cycling's battle against doping, the blood passport program, doping penalties, and Cervelo's top riders. Seems like a well spoken and thoughtful leader.

He also had an interesting comment when the Landis news broke, i.e. something other than immediate condemnation of the messenger.

I'd buy a bike from that guy over John Burke any day.
