Ulissi needs to change his name to Rogers. Or ride for an Anglo team.thehog said:I've checked the UCI policy document and it appears you're not allowed to have a long surname and it can't be euro sounding.
Kreuziger, he has to go down, surname too long.
Vinokourov, too long, ban him.
Iglingsky x 2, way too long, ban them.
Rogers? Short, he gets a pass.
Impey? Short name, non-Euro, pass.
Froome? Short he can take prednisone.
JTL? Short name but hang on, Tiernan-Locke, that's Euro sounding and long, 2 year ban.
well that sort of model wouldn't be any different to the Western world.avanti said:I have a suspicion that cheating is a way of life in some Eastern European countries whether it is getting a pilots license, paying taxes, paying bribes, or taking drugs. Any way to get ahead is acceptable.
It's kinda like waiting for the other shoe to drop. Cookson called Vino and Bjarne out, and Vino is getting hammered. When is it Bjarne's turn? Maybe as Sceptic says there's too much Oleg money floating around?LaFlorecita said:it is sooo obvious the UCI is out to get Astana. Hopefully they won't start doing the same to Saxo because of Bjarne (and Oleg)
