    I give up. Just another example of everyone jumping on the bandwagon, lack of imagination, and the media hype controlling all. Who made this decision?
    Is it true that all runners in the Chicago Marathon are being issued bullet-proof vests?

    Bump.

    Interesting.

    Nike reportedly paid $500,000 to the former president of Union Cycliste Internationale, the governing body for sports cycling and international competitions, to cover-up one of Lance Armstrong’s positive drug tests, according to a report Tuesday from Michael O’Keefee of The New York Daily News.

    Interesting but all it boils down to is a mechanic saying he heard something and nothing else

    At least that part of things, yes. The dozens of people saying they saw him dope.... that is another part of the story though.

    Exactly. But $500K payoff and allegations that he really did fail a test is huge IMO, if true. Right now there's not enough evidence to say that it is. Up until this point the whole story has been that he's beaten the system by passing all of its tests despite all he was doing illegally

    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

    I always wondered why he didn't ride his bike around when he was up there.

    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?!?
