Episode 58: The Doping is Back in Town
We’re back talking about all your favorite topics- doping, the UCI, Pat McQuaid!
First up, the Senate report.
- Cycling Tips has a great overview of the whole report (not just the ’98 positives)
- Joe Lindsey wonders if the fault of the journalists or the fans that there is so much focus on doping/positives [Bicycling Magazine]
- Neil Browne’s guide to doping categories
- Gerard Vroomen wonders about all the coincidences in the doping confessions
- Inner Ring’s thoughts
We speculate on why O’Grady got so much grief for his ’98 positive over the others who were revealed as positive in the report. We discuss the other type of omerta that still exists in cycling – doping methods and networks.
Also, how and when do cycling fans move on? Who is at fault for all headlines that focus on doping – the journalists or the fans who click on the links?
Then, we talk about Pat McQuaid’s slow decent into crazy-town
And we demonstrate that we are bad at math.
We also talk a little bit about actual racing, when we talk about team transfers! Jeff rechristens it “Schleck Trek” and sings a little ditty.
