Actually Gus, you've said very little all these years with he exception of making a few sarcastic remarks at best.

Crawl back under your rock! It suits you better.

As much as you are right here Chris, I haven't forgotten how Gus attacked me last year and I have never been able to understand his reason for that attack.

I have always liked Gus until that time and I have never said anything degrading about him or his family.

And I will never say anything degrading about anyone's family no matter what any provocation could possably arise.

Cheers

I am definitely going to enjoy watching the TDF tactics and then London!

No Chris, that doesn't work that way.

Not when out of the blue a person whom I had never attacked, suddenly attacks me without cause or reason.

I'm guessing that all of the Brits are quite happy since Bradley Wiggins now wears the Yellow Jersey at the TDF.

But, the real cycling tactic that was so special was when after all that work that Wiggins team mate did in leading him to the line, that Wiggins team mate was still able to out sprint Cadel Evans for the finish sprint as well.

Certainly doesn't say much for Braddly Wiggins as he could have printed for the finish as well considering that he had all that restful energy after being led into the finish by his team mate.

I cannot believe how many crashes we've already seen so far in just the first week. Sure hope that we lessa lot less of them during the rest of the race.

They have finally got a strong enough case to bust Lance, the man was a great ambassador for the sport, but we must all play for.

What a strange thing to say about Wiggins. He is NOT a sprinter, the other two are better sprinters than Wiggins. All he had to do was finish with Evans, he did just that, give him credit to what he has achiever so far

I am neither for or against Lance. if there is impartial, correctly collected and tested lab results that are unambiguously positive, then he is dead to rights on this issue and deserves to have his wins taken away.

However...

The testimony of others, the bannishment of team doctors, etc., is all very interesting news but does not prove anything. It's like s murder without anybody being killed. The body here is a solid positive test. So far, we do not have an unambiguous positive test.

Thats all USADA needs. The rest is noise...

Hey Dude, i understand and respect what you have said. But you imply that as long as you can outwit the testing and cheat better then its ok? i personally believe that when most of your ex team mates admit that both they and you cheated, that the doctors you employed are proven to make a living out of advising cheats, that close friends admit cheating with you past or present. Then your dead to rights also.
There is and has never been a witch hunt! that is lance publicity. its just all so sad really. I will always admire lance for the tours and a load of other stuff to, but i know deep down he cheated and i know that he was the best and had the best advice of how to avoid being caught. Wish it was not this way, but it is.Just wish he would admit it, we will still respect and admire him for his achievements. But the more he attacks other people just doing their job or admitting themselves the wrongs they have done the less he will be respected.

...Gus, did you read, think, and consider what was written or did you just jump to your response without thinking? please take a moment before you reply.
Do you believe that oj was innocent ?
please look at the way Lance is defending himself (did you read the judges comments when throwing his first appeal out) I wish this all had not ended up like this, it really is sad to see a superb athlete and great man reduced to this.....

It was really a nice win for Frome since the Germans are really strong cyclists by themselves in the first place.

So far as I've seen, Bradley Wiggins has been riding (hiding) safely within his team. I will give him credit that he did a great job on the TT and won with a big time difference above Fabian Cancellara.

But, the reporters are already questioning Bradley Wiggins about dopping.

And the French police have already arrested one of the Cofidis riders for drugs within the first week of the TDF.
