    does anyone still care?

    New book coming out with accusations on der kaiser and doping.
    Rasmussen now says he lied, but then lied again to hide a lie.
    Basso is still in training with a camoflage kit.
    Landis is appealing (not to me).
    Tyler Hamilton has fallen off the face of the earth.

    Does anyone care any more about these wahnkers?

    Assuming his fitness is there (06 Giro) and he has access to same quality PED's as rest of GC contenders, Basso will win 09 TDF easily. The rest should be writting their tell all's on how it's really done.

    Only the American cyclists are framed, Doc. The rest are guilty.

    I missed the 'Rasmussen lied' part, do you have a link?
    Reacting is mind candy; it requires no thought. Thinking is tedious.

    I only deal with athletes issues when in the sports season (USA sports season), right now it is Football and Basketball, however the Mitchell Report may bring Baseball back the headlines. Cycling will have to wait until sometime in spring for me to catch up.

    I have long ago decided that:
    1) Professional athletes are going to cheat. PERIOD.
    2) I'm not willing to @#$% with my body.
    3) #2 is my excuse for never reaching Cat2 in racing.

    I doubt it. Has any rider come off a doping ban to be as fast as he was before?

    He'll be watched closely, will ride clean (maybe) but will be no big deal. See Hamilton at Tinkoff.

    The Giro was great without Basso in it. I hope it stays that way.

    I'll take your word in regards to peach>rhubarb. I don't eat either...

    Yeah, watching DiLuca this year transfused to the gills was better than Basso transfused to the gills last year.

    in 05 and 06 his hemocrit levels went down as the tour progressed and in 07 it was up almost 5 points from 05 and increased as the tour went on. I'm no Doc but I can only assume the levels are not out of line or he wouldn't have supplied them but looks strange.

    All dead. I'm moving on to the next craptastic crop of riders.

    The only reason I answered no is because I prefer rhubarb. Sadly, I'm not kidding.

    Try sprinkling cinnamon and nutmeg on top of your peach cobbler. Oh so good.

    Obviously you don't or you might of noticed Hamilton finished 12th RR and 6th TT in the USA Cycling Pro championships. Not bad for a guy whose team support had fallen off the face of the earth.

    Banana cream is a favourite pie of mine.

    But, these days? Pumpkin pie is tops.
