    Go Away

    Why doesn't he just go away? I think he has a sick personality just like another #1 in the news today.

    If someone took away a bunch of your money, but you were still a household name and your publicist could get you paid interviews and speaking engagements, would you just go work in a bike shop?

    Is the other guy you're taking about coronavirus?

    Well … if one really wants to know how cycling operates, operated in the past and is likely still operating … he would know better than just about anybody.

    Love him or hate him, he knows cycling.

    There are many, many other dopers that are continuing to make money through announcer gigs, leading teams, promoting products, podcasts, etc. … I don't see anybody telling them to go away, in fact, most still support them even though they all cheated. The most beloved cyclist in history was busted twice (Merckx) and I doubt you would tell him "Why doesn't he just go away!".

    It's just LOL … people pick and chose the dopers they want to hate and or celebrate!
    Voting isn't marriage - it's public transport. You are not waiting for "The One" who is absolutely perfect. You are getting on the bus, and if there isn't one going exactly to your destination you don't stay at home and sulk - you take the one going closest to where you want to be!

    I really like a lot of ESPN's 30 for 30 shows and I'm looking forward to this one. I don't think they'll sugarcoat anything.

    Wookie is right. Doping has been a big part of the sport in the past and likely still is. If Lance needs to just go away so do dozens or hundreds of others who are guilty as well.

    Well, no. I don't know him, so I don't have an opinion on whether or not I like him. My post is based on enjoying past 30 for 30 episodes being to varying degrees informative and entertaining.

    Don't expect anything new:
    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/re...review-1273814

    At this point, pro cycling's (as it currently is) future is in serious doubt. Some people say that's a good thing. I don't really see what good can come from this documentary. It doesn't sound like it adds anything, and simply tears the scabs off of old wounds.

    You want to talk about doping in the current peloton? There are lots of people better informed and less toxic.

    Lance doesn't need the money. Lance's ego does need the attention.

    Exactly. So he's making some money. Question answered.

    The whole point of 30 for 30 is to provide detailed accounts of major sports stories that took place between 1979 and 2009. Whether we like it or not, the LA story fits the bill. He is arguably the most extreme example of athletic success and public adoration followed by a monumental collapse and being vilified by all...or the most extreme example that I can think of anyway. Certainly his story deserves to be featured on the show.

    The WEDU video podcast with Hincapie is just so, so good. I hate-watched it once and have been hooked. His commentary on races with George and Co cuts right through the BS and is just good, as one would expect.
    "That pretty much sums it up. I'm 43 and my max is ~178-180. If that HR chart was mine or Froome's, we'd be on the verge of death. But for you it probably looks like a normal workout." -TLG

    Lance was an inspiration and one of the greatest cyclists there ever was.
