I don't like Gilbert all that much, actually. I admire him, but that's different. I certainly don't think he's cool. That hair is not cool. I would prefer to think he's clean, because I'd prefer to think that most riders are clean - but I know that logically they can't be. I have serious doubts about whether it's possible to do what Gilbert's done clean, even if there's less doping going on than perviously.ChrisE said:You would like to believe he is clean?
I think that all depends on the attitude of the rider thus how well he is liked. If Gilbert was a *** then ironically he would not have as many people giving him the benefit of the doubt. His results are stupid from the end of last year. That is a fact, no matter how cool he is.
