You could always just wear your pants on your head and your t-shirt on your legs and then ride upside down with your hands on the pedals.

to whole foods and MEC
the sponsors are the last ones who are going to police these guys. let's face it, they only fire the guys to make an example of them when they get caught. if they can do it undetected, the sponsors don't give a ***** as long as they're winning stages. there's no way to eliminate drugs in sports so why not balance it out. make the athelets do something BAD for their health before they start the race like eat a cheeseburger or drink a beer or smoke a cigar...

I was just going out to get milk, looks like a stop at the Beer Store is on order too. I never thought I'd say that.

that's an idea. but i just like the thought of making drug taking MANDATORY. so, taking sleeping pills or drinking a 5th or gin before a stage. make it more like an alleycat or the single speed championships.

This has been true up until this point but this could be a tipping point when the favoured field is suspect.
I can see terms of conduct agreements being drafted. No more blind eyes until caught. A whole team has been asked not to compete based on the possible actions of the athletes. Regardless of wether the team itself is complacent in the doping or not, the team, ergo the sponsor, has just been handed a marketing black eye that could really affect the bidness. I say you get busted for drugs you give up your salary and endorsments, effectively you rode for nothing.

I'm still annoyed that I spent last Spring/Summer living in Sweden, and the SSWC is happening there this year. d'oh!

anyone else notice that in all this doping mess, most of the top american riders remain unscathed (Julich, Leipheimer, Horner, Zabriske, Hincapie). the euros must be thrilled....

EDIT: i forgot about Landis.

http://www.cycling-manager.com I wonder if there is a doping component to the game where two days before the start of the race your team is decimated by bans and arrests. I just read in another thread there was the sounds of Champagne uncorking on the Landis bus.

Ah we're just funnin him, he set himself up for it by posting the question initially.
Besides at 19 he should be able to RIP the distance no sweat, no handed, while reading a book, using CM as a cooling off period.

Or take the subway.

In MTL I'd commute 15k to downtown, work all day messin', then 15km back home. I'd average anywhere from 60-100km per day mon-fri, then for kicks go riding on the week-ends.....usually downtown. It's for the love of riding.

Ah Operator ....we love ya. Word to the HERBivores.

Well the list of operation puerto could be the pool. Who gets ejected who doesn't. Aston-Werth is in big doodoo. If they can't field six, they're out.

I'll try to make it to CM tonight (Sam, SE corner of Spadina and Bloor). With the traffic before a long weekend it promises to be a traffic blocking brouhaha.

And if anyone is looking for inexpensive accomodation around Aug 1, pm me. Sam, I'll check square footage on one. It may be fairly large. I may be okay for live/work as long as work isn't metal working or glass blowing or something industrial and stinky.

And woot for me, found a three wheel baby stroller in the trash which will soon be a bike trailer.
