Think so?

For me, I want to read positive inspiring stories about the exploits of the riders.........and not negative blather about doping.

We don't even know who won the 1996 TdF..........Does that make sense?

I think Gus has a point here Wayne. There is going to be a lot more negative stories until cycling can get itself straightened out. Lets face it, the news media reports more negative stories than they ever report on the good and positive stories.

They fuss and scream about cycling, yet scum in the pro sports are heavy into drugs and the violence they commit is far greater than we see in cycling.
Barry Bonds is still applauded and plays in his "record breaking" enhanced performances.

BB didn't fail a test (well, i don't think so) FL did
Also, are you saying that cycling is NOT a 'pro sport'?

Give it to Ullrich? Naaaah
Give it to Virenque?(snicker, guffaw)
Give it to Dufaux?(no different than #s 2&3)

Now, two weeks later, we're assured that the Riis confession is turning AGAINST the sport's past, instead of allowing cathartic soul-cleansing for the sake of this lively, lovely sport's future...

No Chris, Jerry was just referring to football and baseball here in the US. The use of steroids in those two sports has caused many atheletes in having blind rage that has often resulted in spousal abuse.

But I ask, "Did BB fail a test?"

Don't know about the doping side of it, but he's certainly the king of legal action. You might want to rephrase your post to 'alleged king of doping'. That way you may at least get your pants back after he takes you to the cleaners.

Good point Ali. Because, if Lance were to take Cannodale to court, than Cannodale would crap all over themself.

Hi Cannondale. You are on to a lost cause with this lot. They would still blame everyone except FL even if he went on CNN and admitted it!

Die Deutsche haben their own problems... sadly T-Mobile just pulled a 1.5million (? Euro or Dollar or Sf) contract off TdF coverage...

FLASH (I should start a new forum...)

UCI and the ProTOUR teams are meeting HERE in GENEVA on June 19... I haven't found out more than that yet... wish I had press creds!

How disgenious you've become Chris. You're becoming more and more like Will in your daily behavior towards everyone else here. What's the matter Chris, the truth getting too hard for you to face?

Cheers Everyone

And so, the German cycling fans become the true losers there. What an unfortunate decision to make and how so sad!
