...and now time to earn some money to make up for all those years...like Andreu is doing.
Walsh is the Chief Sports Writer for the Sunday Times. That's a six figure salary job. He's doing just fine for himself with or without cycling or Sky.

(And before you say he's being blackmailed to keep his job, as you probably will, he would have no trouble getting excellent employment as a freelance)

UK is 5 hours ahead of the Eastcoast and 8 of the west coast..

The Sunday Times is printing a settlement deal of 5 hours ago.

I'm not sure Walsh deserves to be enriched with cash. I mean was it not Landis who broke the story?

Dim prints the full story on Velorooms as of a few hours ago. Think he had the scoop. As far as I know. He's in contact with Walsh.

Sounds like Easy Street for Walsh. Big cashola payout. I can see why he might not want to investigate Sky too hard.

Good on him. He deserves it. Time for him to kick back and take the rewards for many years of hard work.

In the latest edition of the Sunday Times, the newspaper announced that it, Mr Walsh and Mr English, had "reached a mutually acceptable final resolution to all claims against Lance Armstrong related to the 2012 High Court proceedings".

The paper said it was "entirely happy with the agreed settlement, the terms of which remain confidential.

I don't want to subscribe to the Sunday Times–can you explain how Walsh is being enriched? The other article just covers an undisclosed settlement amount with no other specifics.

Dim has the full text on VR. Not sure it's appropriate to link.

I can see Walsh being a little embarrassed by it all. He has the movie deal. The Sky gig and now this pay out. He's doing very well.

But like I said. He deserves all the money. He derserves to be rich from all this.

As its undisclosed amount I don't think Walsh wanted people to know how much he was gaining personally from the deal. The Times got their part but Walsh wouldn't want it made public.

Someone a while back said it was a million. Doubt it would be that much. Thats a lot of tax free income.

More bs from The Hog. The original settlement came from the ST, not Walsh. They will get there money back, Walsh will get zero.

PS Where's the evidence for Sky's TUEs?

Walsh zero? David will need to confirm this. I'll check his twitter for updates.

David has done nicely. Very nicely.

Good on him. He deserves it. And the movie deal.

Sky TUEs? Wrong thread. Sorry. There's a TUE thread. Post a question there and I'll address.

Doesn't matter how many time you repeat your bs, it's still bs. Just like your Wiggo's working with Ferrari 100% bs.

So you raise TUEs in this thread, post 627, but refuse to answer when asked? More bs.

This is not thehog thread. Start one if you like.

Sky have serious issues with their TUEs. But please act appropriately and post in the TuE thread and do not derail the Walsh money thread.

Thank-you.

In case you haven't noticed there is no work for guys of the level of Walsh. If Walsh lost his job tomorrow he would have trouble finding regular freelance work.

Kimmage did very little cycling work since he retired from the sport and yet he has trouble getting an article published every week. Kimmage has more awards than most.

Walsh was not part of the original settlement or lawsuit. He did not write the article Armstrong sued over, he was not named as a defendant, he paid none of the settlement....so how is he making "Big Cashola"?

Or did you just make this up?

Never let the facts get in the way of a polemic post;)

This world is full of goodies and baddies: its easy for a goodie to become a baddie, as determined by posters here who are "strangers from the truth", but not possible the other way.

Best to leave it alone: its not going to change, just because you point it out. IMHO

I think that the acceleration (by eye) was enough for me believe that there is some bike technology involved, simply because I cannot come up with any other explanation. Doping alone would not and has never produced such an "unnatural" ride in it's appearance. I just find it hard to believe you haven't heard rumours.

I stated this earlier, either here or on a different Clinic thread.

Froome, from the looks of it, probably had a motor in his bike, the same one Armstrong and Cancellara used at different points in their career.

During the initial acceleration on Mont Ventoux, it seemed as if Froome couldn't keep up with the cadence, then settled down and got in sync with it.

The change in cadence was just too ridiculous to have been caused by anything else. And in all my years of watching cycling races, I've never seen such a thing. Only then and only with Froome.

New thread needed
