Personally I think that's much, much better news than the Ducks being 7-1-1.

I guess it's all in your perspective.

The Michael Rasmussen trial keeps yielding interesting results.

Rasmussen is presently testifying, and o boy.

Doping was at least partially organized by the team (Rabobank), as team doctors were consulted. Menchov was among the users. Those are the headlines.

Michael Boogerd (frontman of Rabobank) has admitted doping between 1997 and 2007.

Levi Leipheimer has also admitted to doping while with Rabobank. He has also implicated Geert Leinders (now under criminal investigation in Belgium) the then team doctor for Rabobank and most recently the team doctor for Sky where Brad Wiggins won last year's TdF. All while David Brailsford said Sky would not hire any doctor with any cycling past.

Small detail here - Sky listed him as freelance consultant, not team doctor. Doesn't make a lot of difference, but my OCD is working overtime.

Here's a bit on their reasoning for taking him on: http://road.cc/content/news/76433-cr...geert-leinders

My response is not directed at you but rather right towards Brailsford. The whole reasoning for bringing Leinders to SKY is about as phony as a $3 bill.

Quote:
When it launched in 2010, Sky made the decision to employ doctors not previously involved with the European road scene, in line with its zero tolerance policy towards doping.

That approach changed after the 2010 Vuelta when the team withdrew after the death due to septic shock of soigneur Txema Gonzalez. In the days prior to his death, an unrelated virus laid low several Sky riders.

The team decided it needed doctors on board who were familiar with the specific demands of road racing such as the searing heat experienced in the Vuelta.
The soigneur (not a rider) dies of some strange disease and Brailsford needs to bring in a doping doctor in any capacity? I call BS on Brailsford.

Didn't pick up that he was the soigneur, tbh. Damn, that dog gun smelly!

Seven Deadly Sins by David Walsh.. interesting book. 2/3 read. Thought much of the stuff has been out there, but still. He's a good writer.
