Personally, if I were Iain Treloar I'd be checking there was no Polonium in my tea after writing this article.

    Ah, the good old world of top-end sports administration. Where brown envelopes change hands, nasty dictators are accommodated, and ethics is just an English county.
    It's only a bit of sport, Mun. Relax and enjoy the racing.

    I should add that that is a really good piece of journalism.

    He's the real El Pistolero. Contador be gone.



    I mentioned a lot of this stuff on a thread a couple of months ago. It's all about the influence Igor Makarov has over the UCI. It's why while Armstrong is a pariah, while his most loyal teammate Ekimov is in charge of the Russian federation and sits on UCI committees. Lappartient is a career politician, while Cookson was a career administrator. Lappartient is in debt to those who put him in his position.

    Sounds like Sean Kelly had a hand in the commentary. 🤣🤣🤣
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.
