Off the front again said:Wow, well it looks like the NYT is trolling and obfuscating because they have only brought up some of the precise same points as I did.
Polish said:This latest installment from Juliet M....plenty of interesting points.
Seems Eddie B, the original director of Postal, will be a key figure in the investigation. He was the boss during the so-called EPO era...
Eddie B, friend and coach and mentor of LeMond, there at the birth of the Postal Dynasty. Kind of ironic. And Polish like Novitsky.
Taylor Phinney's mom did not like Eddie B:
"It's real bad for cycling, and it's real bad for all of us who didn't participate," said Connie Carpenter, a "completely antisubstance" rider who edged Twigg by millimeters to win the women's road race. "The blame falls directly on the coaching staff, and from everything I've heard since, I'm surprised nobody died." Pursuiter Dave Grylls had also refused blood boosting, and he, too, was quoted as saying there had been pressure from the coaching staff.
The staff they blame is headed by Edward Borysewicz, known to the cycling world as Eddy B. The transfusions were suggested by him. by staff members or by the physician who oversaw the boosting, Dr. Herman Falsetti, a professor of cardiology at the University of Iowa. Last weekend Col. F. Don Miller, executive director of the USOC, said that the "responsible individuals should be held accountable."
Race Radio said:How is Eddie B going to be a key figure? He was long gone.
You are mixed up on the mentor part. Eddie was never Greg's mentor, he was however Lance's.
