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.

In a 2008 interview with the Journal, Verbruggen said he had never been involved in a business relationship with Ochowicz and Weisel. Reached by phone Wednesday, Verbruggen declined to comment. “It’s getting ridiculous,” he said when asked about the account.
Neither Weisel nor his lawyer responded to emails and phone messages Wednesday seeking comment about Verbruggen’s account at Weisel’s former firm. …
Since we’re rounding up the weasels how come nobody mentions Chris Carmichael.

He’s one of those triathlon guys when it’s all said and done.
…In the end, no matter how much Tygart and Armstrong had fought each other, they still needed each other. Armstrong, 41, would like to resume competing in triathlons and running events that are sanctioned by organizations that follow the World Anti-Doping Code. Tygart wants to know how Armstrong so skillfully eluded testing positive for banned drugs for nearly a decade.
“I think it’s very valuable to them to know exactly how Lance avoided getting caught and how tests were evaded,” said Jonathan Vaughters, a former Armstrong teammate, a vocal antidoping proponent and a current co-owner of the Garmin-Sharp professional cycling team. “They need someone on the inside to tell them how it was done, and not just anyone on the inside, someone on the inside who was very influential. Someone like Lance.”
Bunk-owski. Tygart knows exactly how Armstrong dunnit, because the other guys who had also “eluded positive tests for nearly a decade” testified all about it. And those guys are on Vaughters’ team. He reaches the seventh level of weasel in his quote above.
(After 6-month suspensions those fellas will be back racing and cashing in on their doping by next season. But of course, they all decided at exactly the same time not to do it any more, and race totes clean now. ALL CLEAN NOW. Go home.)
When reading or listening to Vaughters it’s important to keep in mind some things: THE SAME PEOPLE

Great bike racers really do need all sorts of things to accomplish what TD did in that stage into Aspen this year. They need freakish talent, guts, race smarts, incredibly hard training, including core strength training and I’m sure he knows plenty about it, and good luck. They need teammates who have these things and are willing to make themselves barf on their behalf. Also, a really effective doping program is a necessity if you want to compete with the other guys who have all of the aforementioned list in addition to a highly effective doping program. And yet TD can’t come out and say what I just did. Can’t say it. Has to lie like a complete weasel instead. He has been on the right team for that.
According to Tom’s new book, “Core Strength for Cycling’s Winning Edge” tells the story of how Danielson was able to use strength training techniques to be a better racer.
