In the dictionary beside the Phrase

"Throwing someone under the bus" is Floyd's picture. Ranks right up there with Kobe tossing Shaq.

cycling is doing this all wrong, every rider should be given the same amount and type of dope so all will be equally "doped". Then the results would be valid because they all will be Doped. As an added incentive they can use a special "short term boost(like nitrous) once a week on any stage they like. This would clear up any advantage from doping, just put them all on it.

Mennonite Boy trying to deflect his own dishonesty with another "lance-cusation".

Wonder if Zabriskie still hangs with FL after this. He's flaky enough, he just might....

Maybe we should change the term "Freds" to "Floyds"?

Don’t you dare… I’m very proud of being a “Fred” (utility/junk bike type). I don’t have the money necessary for the type of “performance enhancing drugs” that I would need to be a “Floyd”. The only type of performance enhancing drugs I can get, my wife says I don’t need…

I think that most people outside of the United States, really don't care what happens to Lance. I wonder though, I would have thought becoming a muscle bound dope wouldn't be a good idea in cycling, isn't it a little like horse racing, the lighter the rider the better.

If you have a 5kg plastic bike because you want to save weight, then a 10kg heavier rider, even if it's all muscle from the juice, is to a large extent self defeating, if that race includes any hills. I sometimes think that racing really needs to have two classes, juiced and non-juiced.
