    It's good to be back...

    Of course I changed my email address and forgot my user name from years ago when I was a (once in a while) poster here in the mid 2000s. I was a believer back then, a believer in LA and a huge fan of the pro cycling sport. I raced masters in the mid-atlantic region for MLC and loved everything about training, racing and team comradeship. As the dopers were revealed I joined cyclingnews to read the "clinic". It became a ritual to visit that site daily for a dose of the news and a click over to the forum. I rarely posted there because it seemed like it was some exclusive club of posters who would take to task any newbie.

    Now that it's gone... it's good to be back here

    I just read several threads and I find more level headed posting here.

    For the record, I believe most all the top level pros are on some medical "program". The old postal is the new sky.

    I guess the real question is are you a kewl Lance hater or a detested Fanboi? There's no room for anyone else here, you know.

    Welcome back!

    Is the Clinic gone forever? Or just on a long holiday?

    Supposedly, there is a huge security hole in the Vbulletin forum software. Of course, it was right in the middle of the Tour, so I am sure that Murdoch and his evil Sky News henchmen had a hand in it to keep Froomedawg from being tarnished.

    Funny how sites all over the Internet, including this one, manage to use vBulletin yet Cyclingnews and its parent company are too incompetent to use it. The cover-story sounds fishy.

    My bet is one Sky pulling an Armstrong.

    Yeah, the Clinic was apoplectic during the mountain stages. Very entertaining.
