Merckx says incredibly dumb stuff on a regular basis.jens_attacks said:so who knows more of pro cycling?eddy the canibal merckx/some random guys from the internet?i rest my case...
Can we have a non-team doctor decide that? Can't the UCI (non-corrupt, alternate universe version) assign a doctor to each team and have them make the calls, banning team doctors from the races? Impossibly expensive, I suppose.If a doctor says that they need recovery products, then they do.
Here's just one:veganrob said:Who's to say Eddie ever had it? Just because he is the greatest cyclist in history does not make the the smartest. Not by a longshot. He has made some incredibly ridiculous statements in the past.
Please don't ask me for links.
Regarding the OP, here's a couple more:Belgian cycling legend Eddy Merckx has added his support to Oman’s bid to host cycling’s annual world road race championships in 2015.
“From here to 2015, Oman will have the experience necessary to host the world championships.”
Like that has ANYTHING to do with what took place at this year's Giro. Last time I checked, Contador wasn't too concerned with having people say, "Oh yes, Alberto, bravo! That's exactly how Lance would've behaved, and we applaud you for that!"Armstrong always regretted having left the victory on the Ventoux to Marco Pantani.
LOL!!!What will he do if one of the Schlecks or Wiggins attacks him right at the start?
eddy merckx...Chuffy said:Define 'recovery products'. And if a rider 'must' have recovery products after a stage, perhaps he should be withdrawn on health grounds?
On this, Monsieur Eddie is talking through his old skool Molteni cap.
exactly...Bike Boy said:What? so he did drugs and tested positive a few times. That happened to everybody back then. Jesus christ!
He may actually not have been the rider with the biggest benefit. But with many things said by Eddie; half makes sense and half is filtered through his view of the world, circa 1968 or so.c&cfan said:eddy merckx...
the rider that had the biggest benefit with drugs, the person that represents the "problem" with this sport.
Oh, look. The Lance crew is once again trying to apply the doping policy of the 2000's to the 70's in order to minmize Armstrong's fraudulent results. Merckx would have won the Tour multiple times if he and the entire peloton was clean. Lance would never have placed in the top five. That makes Lance the biggest benficiary of drugs.c&cfan said:the rider that had the biggest benefit with drugs, the person that represents the "problem" with this sport.
