Alex Steida?? Wasn't he one of the early 'Red Zinger' Champions?

Damn, that's an old memory... I was 16-18, living near Wash Park in Denver, with the 'Red Zinger' Wash Park Criterium going around (and around) the Southern pond... which is part of my 'daily laps' when I was staying at a bro's house earlier this summer...
Did an 'early fall' road-trip via Vail Pass and Gore Pass (south and north ends of the Gore Range), via Kremmling, w/ my friend who'd banged up his upper body, falling whilst riding his roadie to do a kayak shuttle (concussion, dislocated shoulder, busted scapula, right-hand-bone- fracture!(collarbone looks like he had a golf ball implanted! big bulge)): I did the driving, he did the talkin'!

Looks like this doping investigation is getting real nasty.

Hope your friend mends quickly.

I can understand being a whistle blower, a snitch, a brown noser, a squealer, or a blindsider.

A rat is the lowest of the low.

I believe I was there that day!(the lapped course!) but cannot remember (without your help, or seeing DVD), whether that 'crit' was the Wash Park Crit (usually early in the race(s)) or the No. Boulder Crit (usually near the last day)...

Will get them for Christmas...

Must have already shared the story of having 'La Vie Claire' staying in my hotel back in 1986??(which I won't name due to the presence of 'stalkers' heh heh)...

We were told by our 'Sales Mgr'(young woman with attitude) that we couldn't "get any F&B sales from the team because the local restaurants were all 'donating' for publicity)... but when the luggage truck showed up, I asked the LVC manager (Mike, who gave me my Red Zinger cap I wore to all the TdF's I saw) what their dinner plans were.

He said "none that I know of..." and I convinced him to have the Angel-hair pasta with shrimp (or scallops? heh heh) and chicken... they ordered 20 orders of that, plus 5 kilos of pasta with butter: and finished like 1, 2, 4, 6 and 9th (can't remember!), and then?

Another 'coup', when I passed the info to our local paper, and they put in a short article 'if you want to ride like the winners, go to "Hotel X" and try the 'angel-hair etc'!!!

And then?

I had the team autograph a poster, the GM agreed (I thought) that he'd get it framed and hung in the employee cafeteria...

And then?

It wasn't for a couple of weeks that I found that they'd hung it... over HER desk!!! Bimbo-deluxe, pretending that the poster I PAID FOR, was a gift to herself from the team....

I don't know why I didn't 'liberate' it from her wall, when I left that hotel... heh heh

There's no way I would have left that poster in her office.

I didn't 'leave that poster in her office', friend:

... it was taken, once signed, by the GM of our property, who'd agreed (the lying snake!) to have it framed and hung in our employee cafeteria (many large hotels give 'employee meals' on site so that the staff is always present in case of 'guest response priorities')...

After a 'reasonable' amount of time, I was looking for it, and either asked, or by happenstance,'found it' affixed (semi-permanently: meaning more than a simple hook-n-wire fixation was used) to her wall... a total betrayal of why I'd had them sign it!

Another ZEN-personal-lesson in US 'corporate life'... sigh...

I said many months ago that Floyd's life will turn out to be miserable. Lack of integrity, weakness of character, low self esteem and overarching ambition is a dismal combination. Floyd is destined for failure, frustration and bitterness.

On the other hand, there is new life in the America's Cup competition. Watch for it in 2013.

G'day Sailor Ricky :-)

I've not written much about WADA since the spring of 2010... a 'Floyd' got in my eyes...
