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."

He a Sky employee or what?

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.

I doubt there is much lance can tell except maybe on verbruggen. uci wouldn't denie if it there was any evidence of it. they can't be sure lance will always shut his mouth (although I think he will)

Suggestions that Armstrong bought off the UCI are "absolutely untrue" says McQuaid.
 
Ah Kimmage question coming up...straightforward defamation case because he accused FatPat and Heiny of being corrupt, ok, same as for Landis then, I guess it's hard to argue with.

Didn't get the comment on Riis ? Is FatPat saying he's not happy he got mentioned in the reports ?
 
I'm wondering what LA's next move will be? I mean he must have lots of dirt on what the UCI did (advanced warning of doping his controls) and what they didn't do (ban him for the his 99 cortisone positive, rather than accept a backdated prescription - something in flagrant breech of the rules), etc.

Definitely it would interesting to see his reaction.

Not too many options, I take it.

Either collect a big fat dossier on the UCI and try to ride on that, or make a deal with the UCI outta the public domain and swallow.

UCI throw Armstrong under the bus!



trying to save themsleves.....

Too little to late. UCI basically admitted that for the last 15 years they've been completely incompetant and unfit to run professional cycling. Not news but a stunning admission.

They really need a clean slate if they hope to save the sport. I'm worried about the future of the sport. This makes Festina and Operation Puerto(sp?) look like a bake sale.

I want cycling clean and to have a future. Now US TV will nearly certainly stop covering this and we finally were getting most of the big races.

Sigh.
