    He screwed things up with his kids and and is now suffering deserved public humiliation, but no, he's not solely responsible for where pro cycling is now. He's just the pointy end of a very sh!tty stick. And it's a really long stick.

    Definitely the pick of his material, but his delivery was nothing special. Trust me, I'm a Brit, I know humour.

    Start by reading about the Festina Affair and what really happened, plenty of material around.

    Good luck with your new, improved, sense of reality..

    You're talking to someone who never gave a flying f*ck about Star Bores. Try harder.

    Other people, not me. I'll mail $100 to you if you can locate any post where I knowingly called you a troll. You have your opinions and I have mine, I prefer mine but that doesn't make you a troll.
    I think I called the stooge who posted as 'anti-USADA' a troll. Calling someone a 'troll' or 'hater' isn't really my style, usually means the poster has a weak or invalid argument or is just plain lazy.
