A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.
Interesting but all it boils down to is a mechanic saying he heard something and nothing else

I never thought Pete Rose would have a rival for the most shameless person to continue to lie in spite of overwhelming evidence. How naive was I.
Over/under on 2017 for the come clean autobiography by Lance?
Now the question is ... who wasn't doping in cycling.

I think it's official that the 7 Tour titles have been officially stripped.
I wondering if this means there really hasn't been a Tour during the last couple decades if suspected enhanced riders are ineligible?
I think that's why they didn't give the wins to the 2nd place guys. Pretty much everyone in that era was doping.

Well, they can strip him of all his models, but they can never take away the fact that he walked on the moon

OK, seems the bicycle pros can stay ahead of testing. Does this mean:
(1) that all of the track-and-field athletes are doing the same? How about MLB and NFL players?
(2) the testing in bicycling has been a farce?
Something has to give here. Bicylce riders and their kin might be smarter than other sports, but they are not that smart (they can beat the testing and others cannot).
I have long believed that the NFL and MLB testing is a farce (hey, you will be tested in 3 months so make sure you clean it up!) and only the dumb fail. Hence, the reason many of these athletes get busted by the police with recreational drugs but never fail a league test (for PEDs or rec drugs). I can name three Bengals players that got busted by the authorities (Caldwell, Joseph and Henry), but never failed a league test. How did that happen?!?
