So much for transparency...
Again... why should a business shoot itself in the foot? It´s the fault of politics. They (could) make the law... but hell, they are to busy to steal taxpayer money to safe banksters.
 
When I see Menchov get dqd from all these races part of me thinks of all the hot shot tennis players, football stars, track and field athletes who still get to say they won those events when its clear if cycling was still so messed up in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 after all these years of doping publicity, after the blood passport and all that, then there is no way there werent plenty of winners doping in those sports too.

the Inner Ring ‏@inrng 3h

Brian Cookson on dopers "sooner or later you will be destroyed. We will catch you & your reputation will be in the bin" in @cycling_podcast

does sound like a warning to the great champions fighting TdF now :D everything to make Richie the winner lol
But meanwhile, the lying liars of the UCI will lie!:D
 
So...They have a good passport case on these riders, but since it's such a pain in the **** to convict anyone for their passport they just make a deal and force the riders to retire instead. But they can't stop themselves not giving any credit to their passport so they release the information without any bravour. I have no idea, but I feel like it's something hilarious like this that has happened.

UCI tell Sporza that sanctions will no longer be communicated via press releases
This is just stupid.

I could perhaps understand this if they had said something......but they said nothing. Nada. How does such a major process change go unannounced?

Ridiculous move by the UCI. Very disheartening

I can't read it. Does it say how they will be communicated or just that it will no longer be a press release?
They've been publicly embarrassed as liars. Now they need something to explain the unexplainable.

Interesting that he's keeps the 2009 Giro win but is disqualified from the 2009 Tour.
Very interesting. Anyone who watched that 2009 Giro without coming away with the belief that both Di Luca and Menchov were heavily charging...well, there might be an opening at Velonews. :rolleyes:

Some of those attacks and counter attacks were hysterical.

I just can't believe that dope was involved. What's next, to find out that Cobo was doping too when he beat Froome at the Vuelta!? :eek:

I guess with the UCI now planning not to tell the media that someone has been suspended, I guess we just need to keep an eye out for retiring cyclists.

Most professional organizations in most western countries, routinely post disciplinary cases, with a summary and access to the full reasons for the discipline. Doctors, lawyers, accountants, psychologists, dentists etc. - plug in many professions and occupations.

There is absolutely no reason the UCI cannot have a dedicated page on their website with EVERY disciplinary matter including the ones where the rider is exonerated, available for public scrutiny. Dopeology is the closest thing, but unfortunately it is short on detail. Why a private website is doing what the UCI should have been doing for a long time is perplexing. The UCI just doesn't seem to get it!

Bypass the middle man and go to the source. That interview was done in HARROGATE when Froome was still in the race.

Robbie, why don't we do the same for tax evaders and speed offenders?
