Well Timbo25 will tell you this was all part of the UCI longterm strategy - let the doping get so out of hand that the French Police have to expose it so the IOC will set up WADA.Race Radio said:More nonsense.
USADA tested Lance for 7 months of his 1st career. When he foolishly tried to come back they got him. You do realize that 40% of sanctions in the last 18 months have been non-analytical positives? Testing is only one element of the process. The UCI could have pursued much of the evidence that brought down lance years ago, they did nothing
The UCI did more then the IOC? The key motivator for the IOC to start WADA was the UCI's complete failure to police their sport. The Festina affair made it clear that the UCI was not going to address the issue and an independent testing agency needed to be set up
Brilliant thinking by the UCI - vote Pat No. 1, and Hein No 2.
