Just watched the segment. For the most part, I think Tyler is
accurately relating what he saw and what happened. However, I fault 60
Minutes for not probing further when Tyler repeatedly said that what
LA was doing (and the whole Postal team, as well as Tyler), was no
different from any other top teams. They did scratch at it when they
asked Tyler about his initial motivations for doping, but they failed
in relating to the public exactly what the "culture of cycling" was
that Tyler kept talking about. IMO, that culture lives on today, and
anyone who thinks things are somehow "clean" needs to eat a good
Spanish steak. It also would have been instructive to discuss how that
"culture" fed into the US culture of winners and losers. LA clearly
understood that a clean loser is still a loser, and that nobody in the
US gives a shit about a loser, no matter what the circumstances are.
Again, I suggest to anyone who doubts this to read "The Unfair
Advantage" by celebrated race driver Mark Donohue, who goes into
detail describing how he and Roger Penske bent every rule sideways and
beyond to win races. To come out a decade later in the case of LA and
screech "fraud" is completely unjustified. US Postal got EXACTLY what
they paid for, and they knew what the score was from day one.

Where Tyler lost me was when he said that the reason he didn't 'fess
up after getting nailed for homologous blood doping was to "protect
the team". Bull Fucking Shit. Tyler's concern was his own ass, as well-
documented by his actions at the time. He's coming clean now because
he was tossed a deal, sees a way to jack it into a 6-figure book deal,
and expand his "clean" training business. He's as dirty as Landis, as
dirty as Armstrong, and as dirty as any other pro at the highest
levels.

IMO, I still haven't heard a thing that convinces me that LA and his
attorneys won't be able to dodge the bullet. Even the famous TdS dope
test results seem to be a bust. I didn't hear Tyler say word one as to
where the dope came from or how it was paid for, perhaps he did so to
the GJ, maybe not. Maybe it will come out in the eventual Fed case
against LA and his minions.

Whether Lance doped or not has nothing to do with the quality of the
bike. If anything, it means that the bike is even better, because it
is able to withstand the stress of an even stronger rider.

Cycling is one of the rare sports in which anyone with a modest amount
of money can buy exactly the same vehicle as the world's #1 racer. In
the US and the UK, this is currently one of the reasons for the
sport's recent growth, the rise of MAMILS. The direct result is
positive health benefits, as opposed to the previous middle aged
crisis where men bought sports cars.

No matter whether Armstrong cheated, and no actual proof has been
brought despite his conviction here and in the media, his career has
led to direct health benefits to the world.

the golden Tdf short sleeve from Russel iza bargain. I have several
excellent dye job. when you buy from a campmor buy several or a
lifetime's worth if you have it and want itlike go back again for more
caws there may not be more ever.
last year at the TdC, we ran down to Sacrementos' Arbuttretoreum for a
second stage after Auburn. Columbia ( Campmor) and I believe another
important racer stood up in a line across the blvd and gave us all a
big wave at the 90 end of the park. we were observed by police for ???
after aMom reported us for ??? when we were glooming the trees.

Make sure it closes on your neck arms and hips so no bee can fluster
you. Go for pockets for your inner tube, banana and cereal bar if you
wont use a bar bag. Something pretty, something bright, the choice is
yours. Just be comfortable with yourself that you can wear the design
where you wish to eat or shop when riding. The best place to buy
clothing is where you can try it on for fit. Material choice is
generally not so important with a short sleeve as long as it has some
heat retention for if you get caught riding at dusk.

Trying to figure out why this whole mess has taken so long, why it
wasn't over and done with years ago. There's so much stuff flying out
there, from David Walsh to Novitsky to 60 minutes to whatever. And then,
reading through the recent threads here, something became obvious.
Consider the three different focuses of people wanting to see Lance
drawn & quartered-

#1: Those who hate Lance because he's too successful, and they see
success as a sort of arrogance that should be put down.
#2: Those who want Lance punished because they believe he doped and they
see doping as a terrible thing in cycling.
#3: Those who want Lance punished because he was part of a mis-use of
public monies

Obviously there are combinations of the three, but the problem is that
people like Walsh don't really care about the money, and the money
people often don't really care about the doping. The multi-pronged
approach, instead of making a case against Lance stronger, actually
dilutes it because people either don't understand it or don't buy into
the total package. The exception would be those in the first camp; they
don't need any more evidence than they had when Lance won his first TdF
(or maybe his second or third, if I want to be charitable). They saw
something that didn't add up and to them, it's about time the world
caught up to their way of thinking. They're probably the most-frustrated
of all (because of how long this has been drawn out).

I stopped taking 60 Minutes seriously at least 25 years ago. One of
their reporters was trying to imply that some guy died because of
exposure to something, and he was interviewing a doctor and asked him:
"What did he die of?", doctor answers: "We don't know." Then
interviewer insists: "But he must have died of something." Doctor:
"Actually, there is a fair percentage of people who come into an
emergency room and die and no one ever figures out why." Interviewer
is dumbfounded.....

Or maybe it was Alar http://fumento.com/alar/alar1.html

No, those were just examples of (well meaning) incompetence. You can
never take that programme seriously after the "sudden acceleration
syndrome" episode in which they cheated in order to fool people into
believing something impossible, and in doing so did considerable
damage to a company's sales http://www.automobile.com/audi-investigated-for-unintended-acceleration.html

Dumbasses,

The last clean winner of the Tour de France was Roger
Walkowiak, who won in 1956.

Walkowiak was an unknown rider who got into a long break
and then was unexpectedly able to defend his lead.
(Ironically, wikipedia claims his victory was widely derided
because he wasn't a big star and won without ... panache.)
Given his unknown pedigree and the state of cycling at the time,
it's fairly safe to say that Walkowiak would have had a doping
programme much less sophisticated than the favorites of
the day - he might not have been able to afford much of a
doping programme at all.

So although we can't say with certainty that Walkowiak was
clean, he was probably cleaner than his contemporaries, thus
we may declare him clean by the standards of professional
cycling. Definitely more so than any of his successors, all of
whom are under suspicion, as are their companions on the
lower steps of the podium.

It is a tragedy that the Tour de France was ever run and won
again after Walkowiak's honest victory. It would have been
better for cycling (and for honest bike-mongers, who would
hardly want to sell products ridden by a dirty dog doper) if the
Tour had stopped in 1956. I hope and trust that cycling's
bout of self-examination will result in a retroactive re-ranking
of the results that disqualifies the winners of the last 54 Tours.

Sincerely,
Fredmaster Ben

Tyler doesn't come across as believable; his blinking, his pauses when
answering questions, and his statement about losing his epo virginity to
the white lunchbag and then later acting as if it was this big thing
"reaching out" to Lance for epo... either that was bad editing by 60
minutes or just one more thing about Tyler that causes me to question
anything he says. It was also a bit misleading when 60 minutes initially
mentions, in passing, that Tyler's writing a book, but later, when they
ask about motivations for coming out, the book isn't mentioned.

But the Tour de Swiss stuff... if there's a real trail there, that's
what I would go with. Skip anything that's a he-said she-said thing and
give us the "dope" on the UCI. Let's just hope it's more than Lance's
donation though.

I agree with his pauses and looking away but the more he did it the
more I realized that's who he is. It doesn't look good but clearly
he's very uncomfortable with the subject. As well, the bright lights
of the camera can be a part of that. Making ones eyes uncomfortable
and sweat like George Costanza.

Frankie said it better. For the most part, Hamilton was a disaster in
front of the camera. With all his blinking, pausing, and caveat-
spewing he came off as weak and totally lacking in self-assurance. No
wonder the Armstrong PR machine eats guys like him and Flandis for
breakfast.

Just watched the segment. For the most part, I think Tyler is
accurately relating what he saw and what happened. However, I fault 60
Minutes for not probing further when Tyler repeatedly said that what
LA was doing (and the whole Postal team, as well as Tyler), was no
different from any other top teams. They did scratch at it when they
asked Tyler about his initial motivations for doping, but they failed
in relating to the public exactly what the "culture of cycling" was
that Tyler kept talking about. IMO, that culture lives on today, and
anyone who thinks things are somehow "clean" needs to eat a good
Spanish steak. It also would have been instructive to discuss how that
"culture" fed into the US culture of winners and losers. LA clearly
understood that a clean loser is still a loser, and that nobody in the
US gives a shit about a loser, no matter what the circumstances are.
Again, I suggest to anyone who doubts this to read "The Unfair
Advantage" by celebrated race driver Mark Donohue, who goes into
detail describing how he and Roger Penske bent every rule sideways and
beyond to win races. To come out a decade later in the case of LA and
screech "fraud" is completely unjustified. US Postal got EXACTLY what
they paid for, and they knew what the score was from day one.

Where Tyler lost me was when he said that the reason he didn't 'fess
up after getting nailed for homologous blood doping was to "protect
the team". Bull Fucking Shit. Tyler's concern was his own ass, as well-
documented by his actions at the time. He's coming clean now because
he was tossed a deal, sees a way to jack it into a 6-figure book deal,
and expand his "clean" training business. He's as dirty as Landis, as
dirty as Armstrong, and as dirty as any other pro at the highest
levels.

IMO, I still haven't heard a thing that convinces me that LA and his
attorneys won't be able to dodge the bullet. Even the famous TdS dope
test results seem to be a bust. I didn't hear Tyler say word one as to
where the dope came from or how it was paid for, perhaps he did so to
the GJ, maybe not. Maybe it will come out in the eventual Fed case
against LA and his minions.

Just like the housing bubble, where the people riding the train sold
$600,000 homes to people making $80,000/yr, there were a lot more stupid
people who bought rides on the train. Mike sold bicycles to people who
wanted them. That doesn't sound particularly immoral to me. Anyway, you
sound like you're mad that you bought a Madone and now are ashamed to
ride it. It's still a nice bike, maybe you could get it repainted or
just tell people it was one of the models built to Hincapie's specs? But
then, I can afford to be calm about this since I never bought a Madone or
really got emotionally invested one way or the other in Armstrong.

The Feds will now finish.

Evidence of large payemtns to Ferrari as late as 2010.
Affidavit from head of Swiss lab that came up with an Armstrong
positive for EPO. A totally inappropriate meeting by Johan and
Gunderson with the lab head. Followed by a $25K "donation" to the UCI.
And the UCI says it didn't happen. Oh, this is going to be fun

Valencia--I remember at the time of Operation Puerto, Charles Pelky
told me Postal had a similar operation in Valencia. And the flight
logs to Valencia by Gunderson's private flight are already in the Feds
hands from what I've heard elsewhere. Has Charles spoken with
Novitsky?

Gunderson is going down. Good to see what criminal law and subpoena

So are you saying that 60 minutes uncovered new evidence that Novitsky
hasn't? This should be old news to the feds considering how long they
have been on the case. Given that it is old news, where's the
indictment? Have you spoken to Novitsky? If not, why? With your legal
expertise and inside knowledge, I would think that you could be a star
witness.

This is all brand new stuff for Brian. Before this he thought Lance was
clean and only said otherwise for the sake of argument. The "60 Minutes"
report enlightened him and now he knows better.

I'm a little fuzzy on why flying to Valencia is illegal, but it sounds
like they've got him nailed for that one COLD!

Hi,

What are the few best short sleeve cycling jerseys for road biking
approximately 100 kms?

I know there are several companies, such as Sugoi and Louis Garneau.
Each company has so many jerseys, are there a couple that stand out as
the best ones?

And where in Canada or the US is the best place to buy them?

Thank you

Wait a little while longer and you should be a able to get a killer

check to see if Campmor has short sleeves with 80 percent or ?
polyester and rest cotton for dye holding.maybe in dayglo colors. Then
maybe there's polyester specialdyed in dayglo.last year CM had a barn
fulla bright TdF yellow nylon short sleevers.

then see abt poly long sleeves for sun protection. buy a OR goretex
rain hat while there.

I used poly in Florida. 130 degree road temp noprob. The poly/cotton
dayglo's are warm in rain showers then cool off with the cotton
hypothermia when sweating.

these shirts need careful washing in a roller washer wioth dilute dish
soap liquid like Palmolive for longevity and no grease work. if your
working with dirt change shirts wash ahnds after.poly and grease are
inseperable.

There is only one place to buy a jersey in the United States. Here:
http://www.oregoncyclewear.com/woolcyclingjerseys.html Get the Widmer
jersey. They make good beer. Support your local jersey and beer
makers.

But seriously, folks, you need to go try on some jerseys. Sugoi runs
large, Louis Garneau runs cheap at Performance. Go down to a shop and
try some on. Many would say that Asos is best because their clothing
is hand made by magical Swiss elves. -- Jay Beattie.

You seem to have some ethical flexibility. You stand on high moral
ground by not cheating the IRS but are perfectly fine selling a bike
brand whose sole reputation was built on a the use of public monies to
finance a doping program to end all doping programs. Do you see your
hypocrisy? Wake up bro.

Hey "bro", I was selling carbon Trek bikes in greater numbers pre-Lance
than during his reign. We were often derisively referred to as "that
road bike shop" and for about 5 years running, from 1992-1997 or so,
sold more carbon Trek bikes out of just two stores than any other dealer
in the country. What Lance did was encourage *everybody* to sell road
bikes, including shops that really didn't have a clue about high-end
product, with a resultant dilution of market for those who had done very
well in the past.

I will also argue that Trek did not do a very good job of tying Lance
into marketing. Sure, you got big posters of Lance, lots of ads with
Lance in Bicycling Magazine or whatever, lots of pictures of Trek bikes
in Sports Illustrated. But they never personalized Lance. They never
used Lance to tell stories that "normal" people could relate to. They
never, for example, used Lance's kids in any ads for Trek kids bikes.
They never used Lance to sell hybrid bikes, even though he's been known
to play around with them.

None of this is news; I've spoken about it before, long before any of
this current stuff was hitting the fan.

But I will give Lance credit for one thing. If not for Lance and Trek's
interest in promoting their relationship with him, I likely would have
never traveled to France, my first time out of the country (don't think
stepping a toe over the border in Mexico counts), in 2000. 43 years old
and I'd never traveled, and Trek offered me the opportunity to ride the
E'Tap du Tour and see a few stages of the race. I became hooked, and
have been to see the TdF every year but one ever since. I love France, I
love travel in general, and I really love going someplace where I can
ride my bike and people don't think I'm in their way. So yes, I owe
Lance for that one.

The prosecutors are not going to find any records of money being sent
if Bruyneel had any brains. $15 million is a lot of money for drugs.
The money was probably exchanged in person if such a transaction
occurred at all. The bike sales were most likely to raise extra money
for the team. Pro teams require a huge amount of money and any extra
helps.

Dumbass,

Seriously, you're a dumbass. Paying money to Dr Ferrari for
a doping program is not an illegal act. Again I say it, I
know of someone that makes a comfortable living in the US
doing that. The feds took two cracks at him, they struck out
twice. Now they leave him the hell alone.

If there is a money trail it doesn't fucking matter.

I agree with this POV 100% It's not about the dope - it's about all
of the crimes done to get and use the dope.

There's a money trail. It's tough to move that much cash one way or
another. Novitsky is one of the best at following money trails.

OK, but then don't add the disclaimer "as far as we know".

Vincenzo Nibali accuses Alberto Contador of not showing him any respect.
There was no need for Contador to attack in the final 500 metres,
the Liquigas rider said.

Yes there is, bitch.

Why won't you accept that you are a doping profiteer? None of the
Lance apologists ever asked any questions while he was winning and
growing the sport. You benefitted tremendously if you sold Treks
during that era - which it appears you did. What you need to realize
is that he grew the sport ONLY because he cheated his ass off - better
than anyone else in his era. But those gains were all artificial. Just
like the housing bubble. All the assholes selling and taking out
adjustable mortgages just wanted to ride the train and didn't want to
ask any questions when property values were rising. You are one of
those assholes. Face it and repent.

That's a crock. At the time Mike sold those bikes, Lance and doping
were nothing more than speculative rumors. Anyone who wants to
retroactively grill his ass is an idiot or an ex lawyer or both.
Talking about ex lawyers, isn't it a bit hypocritical to accuse
someone of profitting from the misdeeds of others. Isn't that the
definition of a lawyer? Maybe you can explain the "winning" mentality
of the profession rather than the "truth seeking". Save your
delusional moral judgement for those comparatively more deserving,
child molesters, murderers and rapists.

You seem to have some ethical flexibility. You stand on high moral
ground by not cheating the IRS but are perfectly fine selling a bike
brand whose sole reputation was built on a the use of public monies to
finance a doping program to end all doping programs. Do you see your
hypocrisy? Wake up bro.

A former teammate of perhaps the world's greatest cyclist, Lance
Armstrong, says he used banned performance-enhancing substances with
Armstrong to cheat in pro races, including the Tour de France, the
sport's ultimate event. For the first time, former Armstrong teammate
Tyler Hamilton reveals details to Scott Pelley never heard in public
before of how and when he and some of the former members of the U.S.
Postal Service team led by Armstrong used banned substances, including
EPO and testosterone, to gain an advantage in races that Armstrong
won. Michael Radutzky and Tanya Simon are the producers.

THIS IS A DOUBLE-LENGTH SEGMENT.

I hope they dig into his phoney cancer foundation next.

500 tests and only 2 "so called" positives. Those are very impressive
numbers when you look at false positive rates in scientiifc testing.
The probability of making a "type I" error is commonly between 1% and

In Sunday's broad sheet Walsh gets a full page in the main section.
Headline "It's Not About the Bike, It's About the DRUGS" with the word
drugs in huge type between Gunderson's upraised victory arms in Paris
wearing yellow. Sweet after being sued by Gunderson for libel a few
years back.
