It's fairly clear that during the interview, Benson has read the famous Wiggins quote and asked for a reaction - he knows his site's audience is rather more interested in Wiggins than Lim. I fear it's just that cynical. Fair dues, he sure got the reaction!
I find it hard to warm to Floyd, if only because he remains utterly unrepentant on the actual doping from what I've seen. He never really wanted to destroy Armstrong to start with. He wanted to copy him. It was really only fate and Armstrong's sh!tty decision making led him down this road. But I accept you do have to respect his utter "don't give a f***" attitude now he's down it.
I don't want him destitute, by any stretch. In a sense, he's already suffered too much, but I'm not absolutely sure I'd be terribly happy for him to get stinking rich from the law suit either though - much as I'd like to see Lance lose the ill gotten millions. #conflicted, as a twitterer might say.
Mind you, Valverde's even less repentant, repugnantly so, and somehow I warm to the guy*. Odd.
For what it's worth, I find it hard to warm to wiggins too, clean or dirty. Basically because hes a c**k.
Edit: * NB : I still think Valverde should be nowhere near the sport.
