    He tweeted again:
    I am so sick of it. It becomes common knowledge within days. Why try cheat.

    And then Neal Rogers piped in with two more tweets of his own:

    I believe he meant @fabioaru1

    Hendy’s tweet opens up Pandora’s Box. Innocent til proven guilty, but I’ve spoken w/ many riders who’ve told me they’re always first to know

    Henderson is an evangelical hypocrite, pointing the finger at dodgy Southern Europeans on East Euro teams, keeping the spotlight off the anglos. Nauseating.

    I've seen a fair bit of young Fabio on his way up on Rai etc. Considered quite a talent, but racing at a level and in a system with probably the worst level of cheating out there.
    Thoroughly beaten by Joe Dombrowski at the baby Giro, I've watched their relative pro progression with both interest and suspicion.
    For me, it wasn't that Aru went so extraordinarily well in two GTs, last year, but that he was the strongest rider in the final week of both of them.
    These days, I don't have many clear cut doubts over riders, but of the few I do have, Aru is top of the list.

    Riders in the know: isn't that like how it used to be in the bad old days?
    The difference here being the breach of Omerta and with a big name to boot.
    That should please those good folks of the Clinic, but,as with Maca, it won't.

    I wasn't being serious. I just can't stomach sanctimonious Hendo: a Butlins redcoat on bad acid. With any luck this case will be a case study in what happens when riders start taking the law into their hands.

    That is not a cool thing to say from Greg. So he is young, Italian, talented and rides for Astana. So he is doping?

    If you know something don't be a censored and talk sh*t like that on twitter. Spell out exactly why you are making that accusation to the authorities.

    Hopefully Astana or Aru's lawyers sue him for defamation.

    Edit. Aru just retweeted this. It says hoping Astana and others take legal action.

    Il tweet di Greg Henderson contro @FabioAru1 è VERGOGNOSO. Speriamo che Astana o chi di dovere prendano provvedimenti, anche giudiziari

    Us Kiwis are used to being mistaken for Australians but I'm not sure Adam Hansen is used to being mistaken for Greg Henderson.

    Just to help people:

    Us Kiwis are used to being mistaken for Australians...

    *off topic*

    How do you tell the difference between an Aussie and Kiwi? Ask them if they would ever have sex with a 15-year-old.

    The Kiwi will say "of course not, don't be disgusting"

    The Aussie will say "a 15-year-old what?"
    It's only a bit of sport, Mun. Relax and enjoy the racing.

    Ask a Kiwi to say six, sacks or sex. It's all the same. Well not exactly I'm being stereotypical. Posher Kiwi accents do distinguish between vowel sounds. The accent is generally flatter than an Australian one.

    This is actually prutty accurate.

    This residual chippistry is not really their fault. Generations of Scottish inbreeding inevitably result in overwhelming paranoia.

    One issue I can imagine with Aru's bio passport straight away: the guy spends more time at altitude than the Hubble Telescope.

    @friebos · 2h 2 hours ago
    Now Nibali's telling Aru to sue Henderson. Let's all go for a lie down, shall we?

    @friebos · 1h 1 hour ago
    Aru's management speaking to lawyers this morning about Henderson's comments. "Apology a first step but not enough."


    Friebe supporting Greg? Wouldn't be surprised, he is a Brit after all.

    Its just pent up frustration that Astana have been let in again.

    He's just being a deck* about it.

    As posted ealier from the Secret Pro. It's talk of the peloton, not just him.

    Could be the case that Greg Henderson just backs himself up through his Secret Pro-account, though ;)

    I noticed that Greg Henderson is just about the only Pro that the Secret Pro himself doesn't follow.

    So tomorrow, do you you worry much about "Accents" ??

    Anzac Day – 25 April – is one of Australia's most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.

    He tried to delete it so he also doesn't get sued. Bad luck for him its screenshotted and retweeted everywhere.

    These guys really are pretty thick aren't they.

    Heres the thing, he's apologising and deleting tweets, to stave off being sued until it comes out.

    Remember suing someone for libel doesn't mean they are clean. Ask Lance.

    I like Aru, hope he's not.
