A lifetime ban?
I have mixed feelings. He was and is a doper but if he truly has a mental illness, that 'perhaps' drove him to this, too bad. Lifetime ban of course but he also needs medical help. Depression is a very ugly disease. Bike racing is minor, minor in comparison.slowoldman said:Nail in the coffin. What an imbecile.......and cheater. Good riddance.
You know, after reading his story, if it is truth. I feel for him. The cynic in me doesn't wonder if it is yet another built in excuse. As you say, bike racing rates very low in comparison to one's health. He should have quit to be treated, and then come back. Either way, it is time for him to leave and take care of himself, on this we agree.Pietro said:I have mixed feelings.

Gee, thought I wrote, 'lifetime ban of course"...yep, I did.' "olympic medal", the symbol of what is clean and pure in our mixed up world'...hello Pollyanna....bikepure said:MIXED FEELINGS- you are mad. OUT and stay out. He holds and olympic medal, the symbol of what is clean and true in our mixed up world. and he spits on the symbolism and honour of real athletes. OUT
the whispers have been about for 6 weeks about this. When a rider tests positive: the media and his cycling federation should be informed together, the same day. Rock racings lurid director rudy, who destroyed Ulrich, Shumacher and Riis said last month that Tyler was not racing due to flu. More lies.
Delighted as it spells the end to ROCK Racings dope team,no one will sponsor Ball's fallen heros as it proved once a doper...............
Support clean-real riders.
Hamilton has brought a lot of trouble on himself. He was caught in the past but came up with bold lies to deny the evidence. Even recently he's been pretending to have "bronchitis". This isn't the UCI, it's Hamilton.BroDeal said:Cycling fans are like little trained dogs. The UCI points out the rider they want to villify and the fans chase after the rider, yapping away.
