Those who can really should read the original interview: http://www.weekendavisen.dk/smarticle/view/2

It says a lot about MR's person.

A short 'recap' of it (from a different forum):
His comments are ridiculous stupid!

He is confused on the 50% crit limit and what you can take to get there.

What about being against the whereabouts system and the out of competition testing. This guy is officially saying I have always been and will always be a doper.

New article:

He argued that his team knew exactly where he was at the time and they were wrong to fire him. He won 665,000 euro, a tenth of what his lawyers had requested.

Suddenly I don't feel so bad for him anymore o_O

That's more than if he'd won the TdF, right?

The prize money from winning the tour is a small part of what you'll earn after winning the tour.
The rest is money for participating in criteriums, and a substantial increase in salary.

Dope or not, still it was great viewing.

Don't get me wrong, it was fun to watch. So were the attacks of the late 90's. My comment was more a statement that they were doped right out of their eyeballs. It's the old story - if it looks awesome and like someone is just hammering at a new level, there is a reason why. :p
