"I'm no expert but there seems to be more and more stuff coming out now, from former team-mates' confessions to accusations of the UCI taking cheques and covering up stuff for years. Maybe I'm being naive but I really hope thats not true.
Hopefully the commitment USADA have shown in chasing the sports biggest star and eventually bringing him down will discourage riders of my generation from even contemplating doping and I hope they will continue to chase the people I am racing against now.
If the outcome discourages others from doping, its a good thing."
I have to give kudos to Roche, this is what I would have expected from most pros. No need to put the boot into Armstrong but at least recognise the process and the the possible plus side of this investigation and the hope that anti-doping authorities will continue to be vigilant in their war against the cheats.
OK, since no link, i took him off the list...hiero2 said:I really want to lose my temper and shout about nit-minds and behaviour. I am trying to control it. POST THE LINK. That is worth saying again.
POST THE LINK.
I went to the Independent and reviewed Roche's columns, that I could find, and I could NOT find the words you say he said. This means Nick Roche DID NOT SAY THOSE THINGS.
Post a link.
