Good luck with that. I suspect ASO will have something to say about that. Until UCI pays the bills, they don't get to decide... ASO has already said they will be left vacant. Honestly, they have no choice. The sport was so corrupt that they have no way to know who was clean. Especially after you get pace the placings that were tested.

I wonder what the chances are the UCI will rule something other than blank results. I mean Beloki is the only one who hasn't tested positive or been banned out of all the runners up. And Kloden I guess.

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.

Nothing. Scortched earth does nothing useful for Lance. Pat and the UCI have already done the only thing he'd want to stop. While Lance is spiteful and nasty, he only does so publicly when it helps him. This won't help him.

I enjoyed the first 30 seconds then it went down hill all the way. Nothings changed same old ****.

Press pack - tactic in case questioning got to hard.

Management meeting - why the **** is it next friday?

Quote of the day for me was Pat listing off his resume of doped riders caught under his watch - then saying the sport has changed and moving in right direction - then ****ing giggled!!!

@UCI_Overlord has it right

"If you watched press conference, it should give you all the reasons why cycling is in such a shambles. No grasp on the sport at all."


Nothing else to say, other than a disappointing journo Q&A.

I think they might have had people within uci to warn them but perhaps not as high was we thought. because they would be incredibly stupid to denie it now, since bruyneel at the very leats can open his mouth up any moment

I must admit McQuaid is one smooth sailor, and it will not be easy to get him out of his chair sorry to say.

"We have done a lot of work against doping in the sport, and will continue to do so" :rolleyes:

I really hope Armstrong is the psychopath we think he is, and will blow the whistle.

What the hell was going on in there?

We know journalists read this forum. Would some of them like to remind themselves of this?

It is clear that USADA has no jurisdiction in this case and also that USA Cycling has no jurisdiction: USA Cycling and USADA can/could only do what UCI requested them to do. Such request was limited to an investigation into the case and did not comprise the decision
on whether proceedings should be opened or not.

It is clear also that USADA cannot not rely on any delegation by USA Cycling as USA Cycling can delegate no more than what was delegated by UCI to USA Cycling and such delegation was limited to an investigation.

This should be clear to USADA and USADA should act or refrain to act accordingly.

Yet to the extent that USADA still would try to rely on any delegation by USA Cycling and insofar as necessary, we request USA Cycling to promptly instruct USADA that it has no authority to act or proceed on the basis of ADR or any other rule of the UCI or otherwise on behalf of UCI and/or USA Cycling, cannot act under a delegation from USA Cycling and must hand over the case to the UCI


Do any of them give a toss?

Ask McQuaid some hard questions, the backdated TUE (1999), the Vrijman-support (2005), UCI's fight for jurisdiction (2012), the 500.000 donation Schenk spoke about, the pre-test warnings, etc.

How can Phat not take responsibility for this? Even if he himself didn't actively engage in the conspiracy (which I doubt), it still happened under his watch. The only normal thing to do is to step down.

What a farce.

Some journalists are staying behind for one-on-one interviews, maybe they will ask.

any news about the 6 months ban of Danielson VdV Zab and Levi?

Sanctions have been ratified.

Phil Liggett has claimed that Lance has now raised $600 million for cancer. Also stated that drugs don't turn donkeys into racehorses... All on foxsports in Australia.

Edit: Lance hasn't confessed or failed a dope test. Nothing to see here.

Given the persistency of those rumors, he should be calling for an independent investigation and stand down of his UCI presidency as long as the issue isn't cleared.
How do journalists let him get away with this crap?

exactly. I hope he gets some serious media backlash from this from at leats the journo's not in that room
 
In a way I am disappointed that the UCI didn't contest the USADA findings. That would have been the best way to discover the truth about their implication in the Armstrong cover-up. McQuaid is experienced and practised at sidestepping the difficult questions, and the few that were asked put him in difficulty. The question about why the UCI would accept a donation to improve anti-doping mesures from someone who had suspicous test results was about the only good question that I heard.

He just got away with murder

McQuaid is a move or two from checkmate but this keeps him on message. He can still pursue Kimmage and look correct while doing so in court. After all as they have now said, everything within their power was done. Multiple tests, by all the best labs. They are part of a very elite group, which includes, USAC,IOC,US Justice dept and others that were fooled by Armstrong.
McQuaid has hitched his wagon and his story to everybody else. We are smart but Lance was smarter. He is using part of Lance's strategery, trying to play like he and the UCI are singled out when there is a huge list of people that got duped by Armstrong. He will try and make Kimmage soften his evaluation of the UCI and it's officers given the prestige of all the others that stood idle as Lance played hide and seek.
