I love Cadel...I really do, I just don't believe in this era of uber climber's/good tt'ers that he has a snowball's chance in hell of ever winning the Tour.

Not to mention his lack of a supporting cast.
WC is the Debil.

Speaking of Cuddles...he's out of the Ardennes classics, which sucks. After last year, I was really looking forward to seeing him ride those races again.

Mattie Lloyd released by Lotto. He sounds nuts.

Honestly this is his best chance for a big win..if he's counting on a GT win he's deluding himself.

Well, if you're injured, you're injured.

His soundbite about euskaltel was so amusing too. Sad day.

He'll be back. He's way too good a rider not to catch on with somebody. Besides, it's rumored he'll be riding with the next Australian team that's destined to lose it's funding at the last minute.

I saw some speculation that was a contributing factor. Or maybe the real reason. Or maybe it had nothing at all to do with it.

McQuaid looks for middle ground...as long as that middle ground is exactly where he's standing.

I really hope that ASO, the other meaningful promoters and the teams can come to an agreement and walk away from the UCI.

Interesting, very interesting.  Good for JV, while I am not his biggest fan, I am glad to see him standing up and not just bending over to the UCI.

I've been a real fan of JV as a team manager. I think he's (up till this year) done a great job with getting the most out of his guys.  I also think he and few other team managers see a more professional future for cycling, one the UCI doesn't want.  The UCI reminds me of the Catholic church and not wanting the bible translated into English...they fear losing there power even though the alternative would be better for the sport.

Wow.


McQuaid conceded that the radio debate is about governance and power within the sport."It maybe to do with power but if it is, it's their problem," he said of the teams."They don't realise what their place is. In this sport and in most other international sports, you have an international authority and international federation that is the government and governance of the sport and regulates the sport. Organisers in our sport organise events, teams have riders who ride races."
