Interesting, Kimmage spent a lot of the time just trying to get Vaughters to admit to doping.I'm not sure I really like Kimmage's approach TBH, there was a lot of focusing on what JV might or might not have done in the past rather than what he was currently doing.
Yet another helpful item for cycling's public image by Kimmage well done him :roll:
I think it is quite positive actually. Kimmage comes across as any journalist would, trying to get a headline, but reading the whole article it sounds like a breath of fresh air. The true test is how well they do in the tour....
Am I right in thinking that the sweet with words "famous cyclist" is someone from US Postal?
It could have been any one of a dozen or so big names in the peleton the way he tells it.
I have a lot of time for what Vaughters is trying to do but you can't escape the past, you can't build an honest future if you clam up about the past. Is JV another proponent of Law of Silence? I don't want to think so but he's not helping himself and the longer he denies things, makes odd statements or leaves people to make their own conclusions, the less firm his moral high ground.
Vaughters deals well with Kimmage and practically admits the Ventoux win was something he was not proud of-which I read to be an admission.
i think Cycling need teams like Slipstream and CSC as they are showing that there are genuinly people in the pro cycling world who desire real change and are happy to sacrifice a little success for it - can't imagine Mr L Armstrong or a Mr F Landis ever thinking the same way....

However, Kimmage's articles never have ANYTHING positive in them whatsoever, he also wrote a terrible article on the etape.
