It's all over the news
What a[nother] sad day for the sport I [used to ] love. Cycling has at least started to emerge from under a dark stone as the USDA has put the final nail in the career of the American cyclist of ill-repute - and whose name I will not give air to here. He's not alone in his deeds but it does rather seem he was in the midst of things and tried to keep things under wrap with threats and clouds of charitable work - the latter rather like the downfall of a disgraced UK DJ recently.
I am rather losing faith in 'my' sport - again. It took a dip when GB rider David Millar was caught using drugs - but I have to admit that he has at least seen the error of his ways . It seems there is just too much money in the industry - for it is not longer sport. The temptations are too big for many. However, at the moment I do still keep the faith for riders like Ben Swift, Geraint Thomas and their cohorts. Please don't disappoint me.
