as an "elite without contract" VDB would have not been involved in any way with the Bio-Passport and would have been rarely tested if at all.

Another tragic victim of omerta. Anyone who has doped, encouraged, enforced, defended or denied this curse should hang their head in shame.

I wonder when Mr. Omerta himself will twitter something about this...

I'm not just sad, but angry.
You have covered all culprit bases.

No doubt we shall get told not to speculate on the cause of his PE, but that again, is denial in action.

- UCI
- Media who elevate some to sainthood and denigrate others to pariahs to sell papers
- The old guard of DS's and soigneirs who encourage and facilitate doping
- Corrupt "doctors" who assist in this dangerous practice
- Doping apologists
- fickle fans who make unreasonable demands of their latest "hero" and - cruelly reject him when he proves to be human
- Riders who cynically "raise the bar" as far as doping and dishonesty is concerned for their own glory and financial gain, and set the example for their peers to follow
- Riders who deny there is any sort of problem
- Any idiot who speaks of "one bad apple" etc
- Ignorant observers who in their misplaced desire to affirm their hero worship for one rider seek to sweep the cancer ravaging our sport under the carpet

Blood on their hands.

Another tragedy. The doctors who supply these drugs, the team managers who condone them, the enablers and helpers must be punished as well as the riders. In a lot of ways the riders are victims.

I fully agree, there should be complete co-operation and transparency between the authorities and courts in apprehending and prosecuting those who assist doping in sport= they have perhaps the most to gain at the least risk, that incentive should be reversed.
