Yep... probably is a lie... if you believe Ferrari's statement.

Of course... if you believe his statement then you also think he never told anyone to use an illegal substance... which is pretty hard to swallow as well.

So we get into saying part of it is credible and part isn't... which isn't exactly safe ground to build any kind of argument on.

He's lying about not working with Lance now... but he was telling the truth about working with him until 2005... but he was lying about not providing doping regimines... but he was not lying when he says he's got 10 cyclists under his training now... but he was not lying when he said Vino was a client until 2007... but he is lying when he says he's not helping Vino now...


That's the problem with basing an argument on a non-credible source... and it's also the problem with trying to use the fact the source is not credible as proof he must be lying. It's VERY hard to have it both ways.

I base it on more then what Ferrari said. According to Dan Coyle, who followed Armstrong for a season for his book "Lance Armstrong's War" , Ferrari continued to work with Armstrong after the Press release. He even stayed at the hotel around the corner from Armstrong's house in Girona. Ferrari was also spotted with Armstrong, and Levi, at a remote Parador on the Teide climb in the Carnaries.

Of course the press release said that the team was also cutting ties with him...that didn't stop Tommy D and Popo from working with him.

That photo looks like a bunch of amateurs, not top pros. I can't find Popo or TD in the photo?

Of course Dr. Ferrari is not a D-doc, he just makes his riders *drink* a lot of orange juice... :D

Popo on the left, Sinkewitz in the T-Mobile kit, Tommy D with his arm up, Gaperatto in Liquigas kit. The rest are a some tourists....oh, and Ferrari in his trademark black t-shirt in the middle

The guy on the left side for certain is not Popo, he is much taller and fatter (sorry, still slim) than the real one.
Looks like a group of amateurs to me, wearing kits they like...

Maybe Dr. Ferrari only gave juice instructions for these guys.

Not bad, but not great. The color scheme has potential. The Radio Shack logo looks weak.

Not bad, but not great... more like woeful, atrocious, wrong. I hope for the riders' sake this is just a protype and they'll do some major revisions in the next month.

Garmin and Ag2R jersey stocks have just risen dramatically in my books.

Do you not like it because LA is wearing or that you just don't like the jersey?

the off centre Radioshack logo, the bizarre grey with dots section, the too short neck and the horrible garmines-eque clingy 'aero' material. Just wrong, no matter who the model is, Liz Hatch couldn't make it look good.
 
Come on, let's get it out there.

Credible:


Not credible: everyone else.

Anyone else see the irony in the red and grey colour combo?;)
Was the transfer guy stoned?

Still, a refreshing change from the peloton's normal sea of blue.
Should sell well in certain circles.

It is okay, I would expect a redesign before the TdF but not a bad starting point. Also if you look at Radioshack's adds and etc, you will see that the off center R in the circle is the true logo and the red and gray color schemes are common.

However you are not going to see me in one anytime soon. :D

Hincapie at best is an average climber, check out that win again in the tdf, sat on the guy who pulled and deserved the win the donked him at the end.

not a bad jersey but own a lot of Nike kit already and like the fit and feel of that so might get one. Not sure on the grey though

Agree about the grey-red combination, dont look right but I have a feeling it will not look as bad on the bike. Reminds me of the CSC kit circa 01 except they had black instead of grey which was more credible. Not Le Groupment bad but a long way of Cervelo cool black from last year.

Me neither.... why are the colours ironic.

Anyway, I like it. A lot better than Astana for sure.

i cant work that out either...

for some reason it reminds me of something and i cant for the life of me remember what... as for the kit, it aint bad, its better than some, at least its fairly plain, sponsor is obvious without being over fussy, and as someone said, will make a change from the sea of blue.. white side panels are a bit weird...

better than omega pharmacy's anyway..

That grey with the dots looks like old men's Sunday go-to-church dress socks. Appropriate for the old men's team. The red is nice though. Still doesn't go with black cycling socks.
