Still, I like where Lance is going. Last week he had a podcast with Ben Foster. I didn't listen to it, but fwiw I thought it was a sign of good character from Lance.
Why? Because he let Foster sit there stroking his ego, telling him what an 'awesome bro' he is?

I agree with Paul's reactions. If they meet, it has to be on Paul's terms.

A friend sent me this as well. And maybe Kimmage's initial reaction is to be expected but here's a chance to get the answers straight from the horse's mouth. Because of pending legal issues, the interview might stink but you never know. Armstrong could finger a lot of guys. Including Indurain and Contador. Probably never happen but he should at least explore the idea.

Armstrong does his podcast so he's more open. I'm sure he's dying to say things. Doping was there before me. Doping was there after me.

I don't know, I didn't hear it, and am not interested enough to listen to it.
So if you say the podcast sucked, I'm taking your word for it.
Still, from where I was sitting (in my mom's basement that is), it looked like a good bit of humour, or what the Germans call Selbstironie, from Lance to invite Ben.

agreed.

Indeed he still has too much to loose and too many (former) buddies relying on him (and maybe putting pressure on him) to stay quiet. So indeed it's unlikely at this stage that he'll spill the beans we want him to spill.
But it's nice to see him approaching Kimmage and seeing Kimmage not fully closing the door. It's like you say: we might as well hear him out.

The Landis interview was 10 hours (IIRC), Kimmage might need a week or 2 to get it all out of Armstrong and he aint going to speak while there is the QuiTam case still unresolved. So Kimmage aint going to talk to Armstrong unless no holds barred, imo.

Just Armstrong fishing, that is all.

Ha, no didn't listen to it either. Just the clips Kimmage played during his interview the other day. Foster came across like a deluded Lance fanboy. I suppose I can't blame Lance for the fact that Foster seems like a bell-end.

Not sure I get why Lance getting paid to sit down with people and talk the same ol c**p is showing character. I was initially interested in going to Dublin talk until I saw the price of a ticket- €2000 front row to listen to a bulls**t artist. €800 back row seats----with a chance to mingle afterwards . Its a conference you would get in the door for free at otherwise so the man is just profiteering and proving that we are all just mugs and drugs win again. I couldn't pay to go see him talk.
The Kimmage angle is a pure stunt and even if it did happen it just gives him airtime. Kimmage should stay well away, everything Lance does has an angle to it, the man is trying to recreate himself and get back in the spotlight, he cant help it.

you make some fair points and you're probably in a bttter position than me to judge this.

As for the conference: before judging that, we'd need to know what Lance's appearance fee is and how it compares to other speakers.

To be sure, a small reward and full travel expenses for the speakers would be fully normal.

Anyway, I wouldn't pay to get in there either. Ridiculous entrance fee.

I agree the Kimmage tweet was stunt to generate interest as ticket sales are probably low. Armstrong aint ready to talk the truth we all want to hear, not yet, and he wont compromise his QuiTam case just yet. If he loses that, he may talk as he may need to make some $$$ and that will mean throwing big names under the bus. Will they not buy his silence rather than risk Armstrong exposing them!

@bobkeroll Bob, I've offered your hero some terms via a DM. If you take your tongue out of his ass I'm sure he'll be happy to share them.

Bob Roll, another 7-elevener who's never had to answer for his doping.
I kind of like him, though. At least hes no Maserati poche.
In that podcast (the one kimmage responds to) he basically admits to his own doping saying something along the lines of "we've all faced the temptation".

Rick Delaney, the owner of the new Irish pro cycling team, seems exactly what the sport doesn't need right now...another **** idiot.

thanks for pointing that out. interesting.

I have just become an AquaBlue fan
why? The guy was objecively talking buckets of ***.
He almost literally suggested journalists should aspire to be fanboys with typewriters and nothing more.
He's a *** idiot and Kimmage called it.

Your personal dislike of Kimmage is certainly fair enough, but Kimmage was still right about the Irish guy.
The job of journos is to get to the bottom of things. The irish guy suggested otherwise. Those were the words of a ***, a *** idiot, and Kimmage called him out on it.

Bruyneel's reaction here is a bit rich.

It´s not a personal dislike, it´s just he calls names a bit too easy. Delaney´s team still hasnt begun racing and he alredy calls names, for an answer in an interview. maybe he does not even know Delaney.
though, I can understand that after all he´s been through after he stopped racing, his nerves are a bit sensitive. fair. but free insults are not the way

If Sky are doping Kimmage would definitely rub them the wrong way.
If I were a doping procyclist I'd steer clear of Kimmage.
