It is funny how we can all read the same thing and view it so differently. I hardly see the exchange as a win for either individual. They both come across as childish.

I do think HV correctly called out Landis for his "victim" mentality in this statement of Landis: "I did see it and I do get satisfaction from seeing others made happy. My life could have been focused on that had you done your job (honestly) before I ever had the opportunity to wear a yellow jersey." Huh? Is he really blaming HV for his decision to dope his way to a TDF win? Both men need to grow up.

It sure is entertaining though.
-1.

I see it totally different way. And yes if the UCI had been more serious during the 90's and into the 2000's the doping should not have been so widespread or almost like the must do to survive.

Doping will never end, but the UCI did nothing to slow it down.

As to my activities in sport, I dedicated 30 years to sport as an administrator of which the last 15 on a full time basis. I never took any money, presents or other remunerations.
Hein must have forgotten about the return flights and other perks paid for by the Japanese to get 'Kerin' in to the Olympics - that was revealed by the BBC two years ago.

Nice find.

It seems Mr. Verbruggen is not as squeaky clean as he purports (not that anyone believed it anyways). Running the Beijing Olympics, in one of the most courupt countries (China), for one of the most corrupt organizations (IOC) isn't much of a red flag, either.

Nothing to see, move along.

I love Verbruggen's odd parenth and punctuation usages. Indicative of mental problems?

Are you sure Hein??

Hein said this at the start of the Bejing Olympics:
"IOC President Jacques Rogge and I both believed (according to the contract) that Internet access would be free," Verbruggen told the newspaper. "But suddenly things were different, and that came as a surprise to us."

Even though it was Hein who did a secret deal with the Chinese not to allow full internet coverage:
It is believed that the deal that allows China to continue to block internet sites that highlight the Communist Party's human rights abuses and to spy on emails was agreed to by Hein Verbruggen, who is Mr Gosper's Dutch boss on the IOC co-ordination commission, and by IOC French director-general Gilbert Felli.
....which Hein later confirmed by saying the Chinese had never promised "full access" to the internet.

Citation please? I am unaware of any statement by Landis that he was intending on writing a book, or making any plans beyond surviving the current upheaval. Most of the "book talk" seems to have come from those speculating on his plans, not from him in any direct way.
