He's got a god chance to be the first cyclist to get the 2015 CODE four-year ban.

He had a contract through 2016. The Steve Houanard explanation wount cut it it this time.

expect a coupla french positives in the next months before Brailsford takes over to start a French clean team.
 
Such a shame that he gets caught the one time he tried it. Those single moments of weakness have consequences.

Comment Checklist:

Vincent Lavenu will be disappointed and is certain that this is an isolated incident.

AG2R as a team had nothing to do with this renegade action and is committed to a clean team and peloton.

It's time to stop looking towards the past and embrace this new generation of riders that can win clean.

In French, but google does an ok job to get the gist
 
Lavenu's interview:

?J?ai honte, j?ai honte, j?ai honte. Je crois que je ne suis plus capable de faire ce m?tier l?, dans ces conditions. C?est trop dur. Trop de travail. Trop d?investissement de toute une vie. Le v?lo c?est ma vie. Je ne peux plus, je ne peux plus. C?est un m?lange de honte, de trahison, l??quipe va ?tre salie, ce n?est pas juste. Il m?a appel?, il pleurait, mais ses explications ne me conviennent pas, je lui ai dit qu?il fallait dire la v?rit?, ne pas se r?fugier derri?re des excuses. Il ne faut pas que l??quipe arr?te car il y a des gens qui valent le coup, des sponsors exemplaires, mais moi, je n?en peux plus. C?est une trahison ? tous les niveaux. C?est un vrai ?chec. Ce sont des instants qu?on ne voudrait jamais vivre, on redoute ? chaque instant un appel de l?UCI (annon?ant une mauvaise nouvelle). Il peut tout arriver, le pire c?est que l??quipe explose.?

I'm ashamed...I think I can't do this job any longer...cycling is my life...I can't do this anymore...a mix of shame and treason...he called me, he was crying, but his explanations are not satisfactory, I told him to tell the truth

In a nutshell, the translation of Lavenu's reaction. After Houannard and Georges, the third case for AG2R. Yes Vincent, time to stop. And/or maybe time to speak.

Nice to see the UCI consistency regarding announcements...
This is the big one for me. Not so much someone presumably fails the IQ test, but it's announced. That is 180 degrees different than the new, more transparent, updating a document buried in their website.

this is hillarious. another nail in the new clean generation coffin surely.

I mean, if a french nobody is doping in this day and age, why would anyone else be cleans.
