+ wear bandaids in the crook of your elbow.ElChingon said:Bring a bag of mixed candies that look like pills (sweet tarts, red hots, M&M's, etc.) and grab a handful and eat them always spilling some every time they asked a doping question, stating "What are you talking about? As you turn slightly and expose the excess shammy cream on your underside.". Then own random pets that are known to bite and scratch and always show off the latest pet injury during press conferences and take one to the press conference for added value. Have an unlit cigarette always in my mouth when not ridding. In the event of sighting a reporter doing actual investigative reporting (snooping around, yea never going to happen) do a role reversal and start following them around.
I had tumor the size of a small chickens egg removed. Other than losing my hearing in one ear (nerve from ear to brain was severed during surgery) and some weakness in one side of my face (trigeminal [sp?] nerve damage), I have suffered no ongoing related health issues.alitogata said:[off topic]Without kidding now and without want to be mean, I don't believe that LA had brain cancer at all, and I say that because I know people that had this disease and believe me non of them got out from a brain surgery unharmed.

It occurred to me years ago that Armstrong's camp may have exaggerated the claims of how progressive his cancer bout was. I do find it odd that he had no cranial surgery. No scars. All chemo. Fully effective. But that's been touched on here before.alitogata said:[off topic]Without kidding now and without want to be mean, I don't believe that LA had brain cancer at all, and I say that because I know people that had this disease and believe me non of them got out from a brain surgery unharmed.

Your first paragraph describes the Omerta TypeAlphabet said:I'd keep quiet, personally. I'd answer doping questions with 'no comment', or 'I'm not in a position to know anything about how widespread doping is in the sport outside of myself and my team mates'.
Much better than all these Omerta types 'The peloton has cleaned up! Nobody has touched a syringe since 2006!'

Speaking of Jaja, how come he never did well in the TdF?ljpoyz said:I'd probably go completely opposite to this "Guys like Lance Armstrong and Laurent Jalabert came back as better riders after they took a break. I hope the same happens to me." - Cadel Evans
When asked if he had ever doped, the Norwegian replied, “The only thing I can say is that I know that I'm sitting here with a clear conscience. Meanwhile, people who have doped said the same thing before, but in my head, and here I have it safe and fine,” pointing to his heart.
Yeah I see what you mean. There was a bit more "took us to the lofty heights then dragged all back down again" vs cheat other riders, wasn't there?Ferminal said:Natural for someone who is more worried about the damage to cycling's image caused by Armstrong than the actual doping.
Mad Elephant Man said:Why?
That is a stupid thing to say. For a cyclist to in any way liken themselves to Lance Armstrong is staggering. Unless he was trying to say he is going to dope like mad this year I cannot see much similarities in the breaks either.
