How many were saying finally it's all going to be all out in the open and the sport would be clean(er) after the Festina affair?

Yep call me cynical but I won't believe it until I see it.

Nothing will change long term. The only possibility I see for long term change is to root out all the coaches, managers, doctors, etc. at every level - riders come and go but who keeps on keepin' on. Even then the rot just runs too deep, especially in Europe.

It's really the same in every aspect of human endeavour though, we need a brain revolution. I'm not holding my breath.

to avoid american prison the texan seeks political asylum in france.

now safe from prosecution and thankful to his saviours, armstrong spills so many doping secrets that he gets appointed to head afld.:)

but seriously, it all depends on the agent novitzky's perseverance, budget and the pressure he surely will be exposed to.

was it one of the links in the clinic where i read that novitzy fired 2 other investigators when they wanted him to stop and that one of his victims had novitzky himself put under the fbi investigation ?

armstrong's worth about 200 mil - that's enough money to stall any investigation long enough that it vanishes from the public' radar (and headlines)
