LOL! Seriously, LMFAO! I saw that earlier pic, and was thinking about how it made me feel - not happy. Thanks for dragging me out of 'angry land' with a good chuckle...BroDeal said:We represent the Lollipop Guild

Now you've got me wondering if you're Hammer or Anvil?flicker said:Is Botero coming back to Europa as a director sportive. He was a fantastic and wonderful rider with KELME.
I think this is what Kathy and Greg have been dreaming about. A troika of Botero, Sevilla and el inocenti Sr. Mancebo. If they can pull in the lost tribes of Kelme and Polti I think we have tour contenders here. Go team Botero 2011; live Kathy and Gregs' dream.flicker said:Is Botero coming back to Europa as a director sportive. He was a fantastic and wonderful rider with KELME.

DAOTEC said:Oscar Sevilla Cleared
Oscar Sevilla habilitado para seguir compitiendo. Anulada la suspensión provisional (EXCLUSIVO)
Sevilla told the Spanish newspaper El Tiempo. "I'm not safe yet. Let's say that justice is done because there is no reason to suspend me, I have done noting illegal. The B sample is scheduled to be analyzed on 7 October.Susan Westemeyer said:ACtually he has not been cleared at all. The provisional suspension stemming from his positive A sample has been lifted. It will be re-imposed if the B sample is also positive, and it will then be up to the Spanish federation to hold disciplinary hearings.
Lifting the temporary suspension is in no way a ruling as to his guilt or innocence.
And this is drifting into Clinic territory, so if there is any futher discussion, let's do it there.
many did and where are they now? As Mr. T said" I pity the poor fool."Escarabajo said:Peña burnt his legs for your idol. Did you forget that?
Flicker, I'm confused. In other thread, you recently said that you didn't follow cycling much this past decade, and only know about Lance from watching the '99-'05 highlight videos.flicker said:Botero I respect as a cyclist and a person. Hugo Pena and Sevilla not.
I watched him in the tour, I think he rode with Kelme. Stand out rider, took the bit in his teeth. Totally a gut reaction as a cyclist. I might be wrong , you can shoot me down on this one.NashbarShorts said:Flicker, I'm confused.

If so..., how could you know enough about BOTERO's career to say you respect him as a cyclist and a person??
Very curious, pls explain.
(To me, I know nothing about Botero as a person, but I do know that he often would spend his early season "in seclusion, training at altitude in Colombia" (cough cough), only to join up w/ his teammates in July and kick *** at the Tour. Given the history of EPO, testing, and the whereabouts rule, this is all very dubious, in retrospect. But again, I know nothing about him as a person!)
Wow, life imitating art? I just watched the excellent film, "The Ghostwriter". In it, the protagonist spends the film trying to unravel a conspiracy theory. He finally solves it, but then gets run down while crossing the street.DAOTEC said:Oscar Sevilla, run down by a bus before traveling to Spain
11/01/1910 / 8:41 PM | Hours before boarding the plane that took him to Spain on Monday, Sevilla, was taken to hospital to the violence of the impact caused by the reckless driver of a bus that fled immediately it happened in his last training on the road from Bogota to Alto Patios.

"La Federación Española habilitó a Sevilla para volver a correr hasta terminar el proceso y determinar si rompió las reglas antidopaje."
