    can't see the point of this now. LA and others have confessed and he's banged to rights. Lets hope Cookson won't let him and others like him back into the sport anyway. Suurely it's not just the riders that should be getting doping bans

    Has anyone read 'we might as well win'?
    - I couldn't bring myself to, for fear of feeling sick/outraged, as well as the [email protected] getting some money out of it

    But I'm curious what the Hog's expressed viewpoint was

    If you chucked out all of those connected with doping, I doubt you would have any teams left.

    I think if other sports had the UCI running them I think you would find they are just as bad. Football etc etc seem to be able make things go away. The Fuentes case is perfect example. Cycling always takes the biggest hit.

    Nice they've finally got a date. Have they mentioned which year yet?
    “Road racing was over and the UCI had banned my riding positions on the track, so it was like ‘Jings, crivvens, help ma Boab, what do I do now? I know, I’ll go away and be depressed for 10 years’.”
