09 March 2013 - 12:26 PMThanks for the link.
OK, so help me with this-
"Den hollandske cykelkommentator og -analytiker Raymond Kerckhoff mener, der er ved at blive bagt en kraftigt lugtende rævekage".
Google translation- "The Dutch cycling commentator and analyst Raymond Kerckhoff think that is being baked a strongly smelling foxes cake"
So what is this "fox's cake" of which he speaks? Some elusive Danish delight?
i heard they can now test for fox's cake.
15 February 2013 - 04:20 PMI love the recent developments with Riis vis a vis the UCI.
Riis hints that there are truths that remain to be told about Operation Puerto and the situation in Cycling prior to 2006, and that he might be willing to speak openly if the situation changes (e.g., with the much touted possibility of a TRC - something I suggested already six years ago). It should be obvious to anyone with two brain cells that the only way to clean up the sport is to create a process where everyone can be heard fairly - and without the fear of disproportionate and arbitrary reprisals, the way it is now (i.e., those who are unfortunate enough to be caught or chose to admit are punished severely, while equally culpable persons are left to continue their careers in the sport).
The UCI's response: "STFU. The problem is that people like you are talking about the past."
whoa, i suggested "amnesty" on this (or the old board) back in 2003 when everyone else still believed in miracles.
02 February 2013 - 12:17 PMIt's worth noting that Armstrong has retired from the sport (several years ago), has confessed to doping and been banned for life. Cycling is not about Armstrong anymore. Move on folks.
Apropros of nothing, I have just completed 2 thousand miles this January ... and I always thought smug was "special"
ha, you guys are great. there's nothing left to fight about except to the extent of lance's apology and remorse. we are pathetic.
01 February 2013 - 08:53 PMas one of armstrong's original detractors, the whole event left me feeling kind of empty. i remember the days when talking about armstrong and doping made us like outcasts (conspiracy theorists that also hated freedom) and could easily get us banned from message boards. now that he has admitted to doping, everyone is now on the bandwagon that of course he doped, everybody did. so i don't feel very special anymore.
