mmmmmmmm, gus you really need to stop thinking that all of our lives and souls here in the cycling forum!, this site!, complete strangers ! the world in general!, are all falling over each other to gain some or even just a crumb of knowledge from your mightily vast and superior intellect.
Our lives and any purposes we are able to dedicate ourselves to, are just at best! a murmur of a thought you may of had some time ago, when you were still just a twinkle in the eye of your great grandfather while he serenaded the beautifully vivacious creature which was your long ago grandmother. We are totally unable to understand your occasional heavenly worded ripostes which you litter across this forum with the true alliteration of genius only, goofballs and idiots! grievously underestimating your greatness would miss.
Gone are the threads which would bear witness to your mind of perception and insight of the world of cycling. Ghastly half measures replace them, without your conviction. Glaringly incorrect views without your force of faith in that morally bankrupt geep you worship. Ghostly half stories from your agent provocateurs leaving all the usual crowd feeling half cut by its inadequacy in comparison to that of the mighty Gus.
Gladly we would have you back and more, to once again bring the completely irrational nonsense you spouted so frequently before to our eyes and ears once again. Greedily we would read your utter pathetic worship of an unbelievably moral bankrupt shell who i feel dirty and ashamed just referring to on this day as i have true idols who mean much to me on this day.
I try and will continue to do so in ignoring and not allowing the insignificant la to effect or happen across my life and thoughts. He truly has achieved to lower everyone's or anyone's hopes and expectations of others. Even in his oprah/lance love in which i failed to completely block out. He managed to again lower himself further than any person thought possible. To even attempt to be the wronged (i almost gagged) and to attempt to mock others who did different to himself. To attempt to explain his cheating as strength ect ect ect ect. I can not go on, i am retching just feeling some of those memory's returning.
So Gus, i love you and your passion and admire you. But please stand true and by your self, where you can be proud. Do not let the unsavory smell drift in with you, you do not need it at all, just you and your true upstanding self.

Hmmmm I am left thinking that the last post makes no significant impact at all to the debate!

Man love exchange at the end just after a claim of retching at memories of Armstrong cycling/winning which makes me wonder that as all riders were doping at the time, read the record for the facts, you must have been on a vomiting marathon every time you watched cycling especially the Grand Tours.
I hope these bouts of illness did not take their toll on your health?

hmmmmmmmmmmm drumroll i have been left thinking by your comments here and before in reply to others using this forum. That there is no connection between your replies/thoughts and that you actually have unique and individual brain patterns which are beyond all us mere mortals who have commented upon this forum for some time. Meaning that you are left on your pedestal with only your self and your friend of equal delusion, la, to keep you company in that world of bright colors and shapes you both wander with your childish grins from ear to ear. As you barley ever make any sense and are always displaying such an embarrassing misunderstanding of what others have said or what they may be implying by their comments. i suggest you return to the pit full of different colored balls where you can look at all the bright colors and not worry about difficult things like what people are saying and why? Its just easier for you and your pal to run and laugh and fall giggling into all those bright colored balls.
cheerio

OK, Armstrong is history. Period. What about others during that time? Indurain? I mean, five Tours in a row?? He did test positive at one point. Hinault? He has an awesome palmares that begs investigation. Do we keep hitting the top guys until there are no more samples to retroactively test or the athlete has been out of competition so long that no one remembers him?

The sport needs a Truth and Reconciliation board to become credible with the folks. Honestly, I was excited when Armstrong made a comeback. I had missed his races the first time and I thought I'd get to see the real deal before he stopped racing. Now with the drip, drip of doping stories coming out every day, who cares? It's like McGuire and Sosa's MLB Home Run race in 1998. Awesome then, but both have been linked to doping, so no big deal-chemical monsters!

By the way, Dr. Fuentes seems willing to provide his client list from during Operation Puerto to WADA.

Only problem is that the list contains only 39 clients where Operation Puerto reported that about 200 athletes had been in the doping program because there were 200 blood bags found and accountered for.

Mystery!

EP there is NO mystery at all as WADA war with UCI and UCI war with WADA is a sickening political game that has no place in Sport.

How can any organisation in the business of clean sport accept and applaud 75% of dopers go free with no investigation and go after JUST Cyclist and say its a just way to do business.

Spanish Government gave clear instruction to Judge ONLY use Cyclist names and no others and WADA say OK.

Fecking great letting BIG BUCKS sports away to save Spanish faces like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Ferrer, Nadal and many more.

Also where is the blood passport in other sports?

The real reason Cycling is getting it tight is because if you cannot measure it you cannot condemn it and Cycling catches more pro rata athletes than anyone else and are a sitting duck in sport to be condemned.

For everyone who wants a clean sport and use WADA name PLEASE defend them and show how they are being true to ALL sports?

Damn Drumroll! That was an excellent post and you brought up some interesting points.

I'm going to answer that in another post box since your posts is quite big.

The war/battles between WADA/UCI and even the USADA isn't helping cycling at all. But, most of us have already pointed that out a few years back.

The UCI needs to either completely clean itself up or it needs to go as I believe that we have already proven that cycling can actually continue operating without the UCI.

I don't believe that WADA ever agreed with how the list of athletes was presented to the public as they fought to get the entire listing from the Spanish courts, but it was the one Spanish judge who seemed to control everything.

This judge actually ignored the Spanish government if my memory serves me correctly. Gus, do you remember it differently?

WADA was set up by the IOC to cover sports that attend both the Summer and Winter Oplympic, so as football/soccer isn't an event in the olympics, WADA has no authority over it.

But, I do understand and sharing your frustrations as well.

I cannot argue with what Gus stated here!

Most of us really did enjoy watching the battles that took place between Lance Armstrong and Jan Ullrich along with the other competitors as well.

But, as much as the "7" TDF wins in a row might have been questionable in the minds of the many, most people didn't want to go near that just as the "5" wins had to be quesionable in many minds in relation to Miguel Induran as well.

What had really ruined cycling for the many is more of a combination of events and the behaviors of the various organizations involved in cycling.

Instead of seeing organizations such as WADA, USADA, AFLD, ASO, IOC, various Cycling Federations all working together like "ONE TEAM," we actually watched an international war take place as they all attecked one another, while the riders themselves were the victims without any real representation (UCI responsable here) and they were the ones who lost everytime.

As Drumroll stated about seeing the doping process trickling out like a sive, we slowly or quickly watcked cycling being dstroyed from the inside.

USADA along with both the French and Italian authorities went after Lance Armstrong like the Nazi Gastopo just as they did with Floyd Landis. This whole process was far from the US Justic process that most US Americans are familiar with.

But, the worst part of this whole process was that the guilty riders along with their teams just kept denying their guilt to the public who really tried giving cycling the benefit of the doubt, only to later getting their teeth kicked in when these sorry riders and teams finally admitted to ther doping.

That was the real crime and no matter how anyone spins it, they're the real criminals who need to bge banned from all sports for a LIFE TIME!

But, while many here had ignored it in the beginning, I stated that the entire cycling team staff and the sponsors were also responsable as they were the real cause of why the doping began and took place.

Cheers Everyone & Have A Good Weekend

Drumroll, can you provide the sources that show where 75% dopers have been allowed to go free with no investigations?

Drumroll, can you provide the sources that show the Spanish government telling this judge to just release the list of cyclist's names?

Otherwise you're talking a story that has not ever taken place where the news/sports media has ever reported!
