    On top of the Lance story, there is now this...

    "If you're riding less than 18 MPH up a 2% grade please tell people Coggan is coaching you."

    Can you imagine the furor if American Police searched European team motel/hotel rooms? Can you imagine the crap we would get? But, of course nothing will be said by the media.....as usual.
    As usual Europeans are EXPECTED to cheat and Americans could never be allowed to do such.

    -Eastern European weight lifters cheated for decades.
    -European Teams in the ISDE(long-distance dirt bike race) cheat all the time.

    But just dare Americans to THINK about cheating.
    Sorry, but I've had it to here with this European bull ****!

    I think your brush is a bit too broad for this task. The Italian police (and prosecutors) are really in a league of their own. It's a bush league, but thankfully no one else is playing there (although Great Britain comes close at times). I think it has something to do with their recent history of dysfunctional governments which resulted in inadequate oversight of law enforcement personnel.

    Got a kick from Eki's quote, "By the time I came I (found) everyone healthy and without problems, so I guess nothing happened," Ekimov said. "I cannot comment on things that I didn't see." Perhaps a slight dig at the Polizia? Love that guy. I was sad when he decided to retire, (from active racing).

    Wow, that's amazing! I never knew that Radio Shack had gone into the Hotel business.
    Do they try to make you sign up for cell phone service as soon as you walk in the door?

    I thought I was suffering from depression once. Turned out, I was simply surrounded by idiots.

    They're butt holes & they know it. I've dealt with them before, yes, Italian business leaders. They are who ordered this.
    If you want a lighter bike ? Eat more salads !!!!

    While he said it in reference to the issue of marital fidelity, I like the comedian Ron White's line: "You can't get caught if you don't cheat."

    When a pro team races at these levels they know they are signing on to random searches.

    You don't have to sign up, but they leave a catalog on your pillow.

    Maybe they're looking for something faster to replace this ?
