…to explain why a team stacked with old dopers (who all claim to have stopped using just about exactly however many years ago matches the statute of limitations, by zany coincidence) has been so successful while doping is still an acknowledged issue in the sport:
Sponsorship keeps the whole operation going, And once you had that, the doping started to stop, the level came down a little bit and all of a sudden we started winning races.
THEY ARE JUST THAT GOOD FOLKS.
Are you buying that?

Two thousand seven
After which nobody doped
Before which all did
Via Velonews: Armstrong, Vaughters talking about moving cycling forward.
Moving cycling forward? Or, with their mutual everybody-quit-doping-in-2006 tall tale, consigning a new generation of young riders to the hell of having to take all the latest products and lie about it?
liked both of these guys a lot more when they were pedaling more and talking less.

This strikes me as hypocritical and simple-minded stuff from Neal Rogers, cheering Di Luca’s getting caught by young unknown riders who have yet to be caught in any doping dragnets.
Garmin is packed full of “riders with controversial pasts.” Let’s see if he has the same venom for them as they defend their Giro title.
While his move was bold, that Di Luca was unable to hold his attack on Tuesday is encouraging.
The day when the pro peloton is clear of suspicion will likely never materialize. However, the day when the peloton is clear of riders with controversial pasts may be only a few years away.
Translation: Di Luca’s defeat helps us pretend that they’re not all still doping.

Tweet from Vaughters:
@Vaughters: @Velo_Vicar So common, that during my time as a rider on a div 1 team, I cannot think of any div1 rider who never doped, outside of Bassons.
That Was Then, This is Now. So clean now. Blood so pure.
