    When did pay reflect work rate?

    Comparing road cycling to soccer or any of the big N. American sports is ridiculous in terms of money.

    It might seem that way compared to last year with the Alpe d'Huez and Mont Ventoux finishes.

    Never said I thought they would, just that they should.

    I'm quite sure Vino hasn't testified to doping and if Riis has then he should have no problem doing it again.

    Testify to the when, where, why and how of their doping.

    OK, so you clearly think the past should be forgotten and as long as it's ignored it won't reappear. I take a different view.

    I agree with Cookson. They should testify. As long as they don't the teams/riders they are associated with will be tainted by the secrets.

    Think you're mixing him up with Voeckler (Europcar). I only saw V and the Europcar do that. Valverde wasn't gapped on the Tourmalet he was in the peloton with a couple of team mates all the way up.
