Here is a McQuaid quote from 10 years ago...TeamSkyFans said:
McQuaid and Rushton’s last Irish venture saw the Tour de France come to Ireland in 1998. However, although the race was marred by a series of drug scandals, McQuaid is convinced that things have improved since. ‘Cycling has done more lately than any other sport to clean up its act, and I am convinced that over the next year or two it will become one of the cleanest out there.’
I love McQuaid. He's always so transparent, despite his efforts to the contrary.Hmmmmm said:http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/contador-has-damaged-cycling-says-mcquaid
Gotta love this guy! I'm beginning to think McQuaid is unique and his brain is located in a different place on his body then the rest of us...thus, evolution has not worked yet in his case regarding his use of his brain.
To quote him from the above article....."I don't want to speak about the affair before it is concluded....". Ok, so you would think he would have nothing further to say on the subject. In his own words, though: "But naturally, the fact that the Clenbuterol was found overshadows last year's Tour de France. Whether he is guilty or not, Contador has damaged us very much," said McQuaid.
Idiot numero uno! Yup, cleaner than ever!
Good chance that they are privy to what is coming because Armstrong told them and their reaction is to start the distancing process. I imagine they are repacking an old blood testing machine to post to Austin, Texas soon.Alpe d'Huez said:That is peculiar his distancing himself from Lance after all these years. He must envision something coming.
I refuse to believe there is a single sport out there that is 100% perfectly clean. Even sports like darts, billiards, cricket, sailing have at least a few people likely on beta blockers, or some form of barbiturate to calm nerves, or HGH to improve perception, etc. When golfer Gary Player made that announcement that he knew golfers who were on steroids it didn't surprise me for one second either.
Having said all that, I'd have to say cycling is one of the dirtiest sports in the world. The NBA has to be up there, not so much for doping (though lots of guys on weed), but because of corruption in officiating and league control to alter the outcome of games. That may be worse than cycling actually.
