Films not to miss this week:
From Colombia's peace and justice process to Eastern Europe's sex trafficking trade, the HRW Film Festival brings three compelling documentaries to New York this week.

IMPUNITY takes us to Colombia, where families affected by the atrocities committed by paramilitary leaders fear that they will never receive justice. THE PRICE OF SEX is a story told by the young women who have been drawn into a world of sex trafficking but refused to be silenced by shame, fear, and violence. Using security footage of encounters betwen Canadian intelligence and then 16-year-old Guantanamo detainee Omar Khadr, YOU DON'T LIKE THE TRUTH - 4 DAYS INSIDE GUANTANAMO raises serious questions about civil liberties in a post-9/11 world.

IMPUNITY + Q&A
Presented in association with Cinema Tropical, Committee to Protect Journalists and International Center for Transitional Justice.

In 2005, Colombia started gathering evidence about the horrific violence being carried out by illegal paramilitias. Through a series of these testimonies, footage of paramilitary crimes, and interviews with victims and experts, the brutal history of paramilitary violence comes to light.

THE PRICE OF SEX + Q&A
Presented in association with Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma and International Center for Photography.

The Price of Sex is an unprecedented inquiry into a dark side of immigration: the underground criminal network of human trafficking and the experiences of Eastern European women forced into prostitution abroad. Filming undercover and gaining extraordinary access, filmmaker Mimi Chakarova illuminates how even though some women escape to tell their stories, sex trafficking thrives.

YOU DON'T LIKE THE TRUTH - 4 DAYS INSIDE GUANTANAMO + Q&A
Presented in association with New York Civil Liberties Union, and WITNESS.

You Don't Like the Truth – 4 Days Inside Guantanamo is a shocking documentary based on security camera footage from an encounter in Guantanamo Bay between a team of Canadian intelligence agents and Canadian citizen Omar Khadr, then a 16- year-old detainee. This unique depiction of Omar Khadr's interrogation offers an unusual
insight into a world where "the truth" itself is often negotiated.

There must be a moral somewhere involving wives versus government, its
just a pity SOTS isn't around to clarify the moral.

Wow you had team pursuit teammates ? I was pretty impressed with
that 4:07 pursuit until I realized it was for three thousand fucking
meters !!!

What does that equate to breaking 5:20 in the men's pursuit ? Did
they let you race 3k because of the sex change?

Spoken like a true doctor! Everyone knows that when you choke someone
the lack of oxygen blocks out the pain and stimulates the pleasure

Love it. Fred on a stick.

In other news, a local rider (to me) is leading the Solo-Women
division, which has been reduced by attrition to two riders. Ex-pro
Leah Goldstein is tearing it up. BTW, don't sass her, she used to be a
world-champion kickboxer, and the Israeli Army trained her to kill:

Have you edited Moninger's wikipedia page yet? They'll want a reference,
fortunately lawsuits are public record. Even Lafferty can look that shit
up.

And for everyone's benefit could you please keep both hands on the
keyboard when writing about LANCE? Thanks.

No, he didn't. According to Ed Coyle in September 1993 Armstrong weighted
75,1 kg (according the Motorola team guide 74,91). Ten years later Armstrong
declared to be satisfied with "a low 74kg", which, by the way, was his
weight just before the Tour. Of course, hors saison he weighted much more
(79-80 kg), but thtat's another matter.

The drug question isn't meaningless. Takings EPO isn't enough. The
Gewiss-Ballan team made a sensation 1994, not because they were taking EPO
(which was already in 1987 or 1988 introduced in the peloton), but because
they knew how to use it and how to combine it with other drugs.

I wouldn't say Vinokourov cannot time trial. He won the ITT in the 2006
Vuelta and finished three or four times third in the Tour (after Armstrong
and Ullrich).

his pedaling technique has been proved mediocre, e.g., his two up

Nobody had a worse pedaling technique than Michel Pollentier "the first
cyclist who doesn't know how to ride a bicycle" (L'Equipe). A small, skinny
guy. All the same, an excellent time trialist. Beat Merckx in the Tour 1974,
Moser in the Giro, etc.

Pedaling technique is a red herring.

My information is that Armstrong's 1995 weight was approximately 84kg.
To restate, Armstrong TT improvement must be due to position and
technique because of the 200+ other pros using similar drugs, none of
them had similar improvement. Moreover, everyone can improve his
position, but it takes a complete rethinking of everything you've ever
done to change pedaling style.

It appears to me that Johan Bruyneel who was known as one of the
leading proponents of high cadence spinning (I recall reading at the
time that he spent hours training in a 42x15 fixed gear, which leads
to fast spinning at the speeds he trained) somehow managed to figure
out that this was the key to Armstrong's progression as a grand tour
rider.

It appears to me that climbing an flat TT pedaling style are
fundamentally different and different muscles are used in different
ways. I just heard an interview with David Zabriskie who directly
referred to this by stating that climbing requires constant pressure
on the pedals, which doesn't suit him. Conversely, climbers used to
putting constant pressure when climbing could apply it to flat time
trialing thereby wasting energy, that is, no getting the muscular
power to the pedals.

Andy Coggan and I had a discussion here on how pedaling forces differ
between climbing and riding in the flats. I don't think we came to any
kind of conclusion as to why guys who are good climbers often aren't
good TT'er's and vice versa. Sure, position and equipment make a
difference, but there's something more going on here. Technique? There
are plenty of good ITT'er's who spin, some who push huge gears, some
who are slick as snot, others who rock all over. Indurain had a
terrible position on the bike, we used to call him "monkey on a
stick" (no relation to Magilla). A guy like Indurain simply should not
have been as good a climber as he was (dope or not) - but he was.

One thing that's often discounted is the mental side of it. You
remember Kevin Metcalfe? I heard he just set a national 40K record for
50+ (or something like that). He told us that he was able to hold a
180 bpm heart rate for a full 40K, that's got to be insanely difficult
to do and not simply give in to the pain. Is climbing different?

If I had any answers, maybe I'd climb and be able to ride in the flats
better. Unfortunately, not.

Certainly not. Even Ferrari and Armstrong himself ever claimed his weight
was more than 80kg. Before his illmes his weight fluctuated between 74,9 and
80 kg, from 1999 to 2005 between 74 and 79,7.


To restate, Armstrong TT improvement must be due to position and
technique because of the 200+ other pros using similar drugs, none of
them had similar improvement.


What about Bjarne Riis? Before 1993, the year he said he started taking EPO,
he Riis rode 7 ITT's in the Tour de France (I don't count climbing TT's).
His results: 88th, 64th, 67th, 89th, 138th, 79th. In 1993: 12th, 21th; 1994:
6th; 1995: 2nd, 2nd; 1995: 2nd, 4th; 1996: 2nd; 4th; 1997: 3rd, 93th (the
ITT when he threw away his bike!)


Moreover, everyone can improve his
position, but it takes a complete rethinking of everything you've ever

to fast spinning at the speeds he trained) somehow managed to figure
out that this was the key to Armstrong's progression as a grand tour
rider.

According to Daniel Coyle's 'Lance Armstrongs War, it was Michele Ferrari's
idea.


"Ferrari had watched the East Africans come to dominate the long distance
running scene, and, as a former runner, he was fascinated by what seemed a
glaring inefficiency in their form. Rather than the lovely antelope strides
of other runners, the Kenyans ran with short, quick steps. They didn=t run,
they scooted. It was hardly pretty; moreover, it had been shown by many
studies that the ideally efficient running stride was long, not short. All
the same, these inefficient Kenyans
seemed to win an awful lot. An idea began to form.
(...)
"It was a bold idea, one that appealed to Ferrari because it represented a
logical step in the evolution of the ultimate athlete; one who shifts the
stress from powerful but unreliable muscles onto the more resilient
cardiovascular system. They worked with Armstrong to raise his cadence from
the conventional range to 100 rpms, a move that Ferrari regards as the key
to all that has happened since."


It appears to me that climbing an flat TT pedaling style are
fundamentally different and different muscles are used in different
ways. I just heard an interview with David Zabriskie who directly

on the pedals, which doesn't suit him. Conversely, climbers used to
putting constant pressure when climbing could apply it to flat time
trialing thereby wasting energy, that is, no getting the muscular
power to the pedals.

And yet, some of the best climbers were excellent time trialists as well:
not only Coppi, but also Bobet, Gaul, Merckx, Oca�a, Van Impe, Fignon, etc.

Armstrong was already investigated for witness tampering when he
chased down a break with Simeoni in the last stage of the Tour de
France. The videotape evidence there was clear, Simeoni will be
brought to testify at the trial to confirm the incident.

Doubtful that Simeoni will be anything more than a tourist visiting
Armstrong's trial. Apples vs. oranges Ilian

If there are impartial third parties that heard LA threaten Tyler,
then LA is definitely in trouble. If there are videotapes that show LA
acting in a threatening manner towards Tyler, or there are impartial
third parties that saw him act threateningly, then LA is definitely in
trouble. However, if it just comes down to Tyler's word against LA's
word, I doubt anything will happen - and that's what it's looking like
right now. The videotapes don't seem to exist, and at least in that
article, it doesn't seem anyone other than Tyler and Lance actually
heard their conversation.

It has already been reported that Armstrong physically stopped Hamilton.
That lends credibility to Hamilton's allegations. If you bothered to
read the article, you'd have read that tampering charges are often
brought with only the witness' statement of what happened. I suggest
that you also take a good look at the description of the meeting on the
Outside reporter's blog.

The fact that the restaurant owner has admitted giving Armstrong advance
warning of Hamilton's presence is also a major problem for Armstrong as
his presence and physical stopping of Hamilton indicates intent to
intimidate.

It is being reported elsewhere the the US Attorney has, in a letter to
Armstrong's counsel, asked for Armstrong to relate his side of the
encounter. Lance truly screwed himself.

Moreover, during the USPS years, Armstrong was well known for
following his teammates and taking shelter from the wind as well as
taking pace, thereby using them for his own ends. During all those
tour wins, did any other rider from USPS win a stage, why did one of
his teammates only win a stage when they switched to Discovery
Channel? Inquiring minds want to know.....

I haven't seen either on Usenet in months; I took that as a sign that
they were both better off than before their crashes.
