Which part of the report most surprised McQuaid? "I have to admit I was sickened by what I read in the Usada report. The story of how Zabriskie was coerced, and in some ways forced, into doping is mind-boggling."

How will Armstrong be remembered?
"Armstrong deserves to be forgotten in cycling now.

To an extent I agree, but surely you keep him in mind as an example and a cautionary lesson for the future."

How can cycling go forward when some of the men involved with the running of teams are former dopers? "It is possible that people who have made mistakes in the past can help the sport in the future."
 
Does he regret not listinening to Landis in 2010 ? "WE DID" ! hum...if it had been up to UCI this would have been buried. Apparently they didn't like that he accused them of covering up the 2001 positive test...hum, ok. The real problem of course is that no one trusts McQuaid, he needs to go.

if he said there is no place for former dopers the likes of st millar and vaughters would need to go as well. Personally i have no issues with that, but i know quite a few here worship the appostals miller and vaughters

Verbiest just said the corroborating evidence from 09 + 10 was ignored.

So the bio passport is a piece of ****

That's amusing because on the UCI web site they claim that no one can cheat with the biological passport. ;)

A question asked about what to do with those previously involved in doping who now run teams:
"There are two views on that," says McQuaid. "One view, that Team Sky take, is that anyone involved should have nothing to do with the sport. The other view is that people who have made mistakes in the past can help in the future."

any questions yet about uci covering up positive tests of lance? :rolleyes:
Philippe Verbiest, the UCI lawyer, in answer to a question about Landis's statements in the report and the UCI's decision to sue him previously. "The only problem UCI had with Floyd Landis was him saying the positive test had been covered up. There was no positive test," says Verbiest.

Came up when they mentioned Landis, as much as I hate UCI there does not seem to be any evidence that they did...now the antidoping machine and Verbruggen payoffs, well...

Our only "hope" is that Dopestrong will go ape**** and spill the beans on the UCI and Heiny payoffs...I wouldn't put it past him at this point.

If you can't cut the head of the snake, it will survive. A part of me admires what the UCI is doing here, but cycling is dead. They are beating a dead horse, and to me it looks as if they are going to continue beating it.
