This has the potential to be a HUGE bust.
Watergate Break-in type of bust. Festina 1998 type of bust.
Cyrille Guimard is THE Legendary DS of van Impe, Hinault, Laurent Fignon, Greg LeMond, Charly Mottet, Marc Madiot. His Pro Teams have won seven Tours de France.
Guimard's development team, Vélo Club Roubaixment team, is among the BEST development teams on the planet. Kind of like a Trek-Livestrong Team on steroids!
This is a huge bust. This may be the FIRST amateur team bust to make it on to the WIKI Dopers in Cycling pages. Unless Levi beats them to it of course.
And this bust will also be a big shot in the arm for the AFLD as it fights for more Government funding.
But most of all - I see this bust as a brilliant move by Captian Bordry as he chases his biggest prize of all - you know who, wink wink.
When Lance is inevitably taken in by the French Gendarmes in the Needlegate scandal, Bordry can now point to this attack on the Foundation of French Cycling. Lance will NOT be able to claim Anti-Americanism.
Lance will need to re-think his next move.
