It’s hard to fathom the lengths of idiocy being reached in front of the 2010 racing season.
1. The AFLD won’t be involved in testing at the Tour. Great, the UCI got what they wanted. Mark our words – a few small time riders will get pinched, and the dope machines like Valverde and Armstrong and Contador and the Schlecks will dope like mad, put up superhuman rides, and do so worry free. And the money will roll in.
2. Ricco. Kinda makes you want to shit yourself and puke on yourself at the same time, doesn’t it?
3. Rasmussen. See Ricco.
4. Riis pops off today about who should “have to pay” and whatnot. Bjarne – calling the kettle doped.Just go away you fuck. Please.
5. In brighter news, Floyd Landis beats Zabriskie’s record at the Tour of Bahamas and credits “all that drinking” for the win. He also says if he doesn’t get his contract with the eternally and completely fucked up Rock Racing that he’ll “go back to his shed behind the dumpster” – repentant or otherwise, he sure is funny. He also says he might “write a book”. If that’s not a shiver to dopestrong, I don’t know what is. Please write the book, Floyd. Tell us about the Motorcycles.
Hey, at least we got “As the Toto Turns” to keep us laughing in spite of all the shame. And we were almost kinda sorta maybe a little bit starting to turn the corner on doping for a hot minute there. Oh well. At least we’ll have fodder to laugh about.
