I just read that as well.

I can't say that I'm shocked. I'm also a little pissed that no one else is going down with him.

I can't help but wonder what things would be like if Lance hadn't retired when he did.

Oh well. Not like we didn't see this one coming. I wonder if Basso will get linked up next.

Doubt it. It would seem the Italians are better at looking the other way.

jaded, yes, that works, but that's how i felt last summer.

"stupid" is actually the word that came to mind.

Gee cyclist using PED's....I'm shocked!!!

As for Basso being next, the only 'credible' link (and I use the word credible loosely) is the word Brillo. Now they made the connection to Basso off of this being his dogs name, something Ivan denies. Yet some of the bags were named Valve yet Valverde was not involved.

yeah, didn't Kramer store some blood in case he needed a transfusion? He ended up putting 2 pints into Jerry.
