flandis is lame.. but I think the Unibet deal is pretty crazy, they've done well in the few races they have entered too.

- Flandis manager threatening LeMond (WINNER BY A LANDSLIDE!!)

Others:

- Basso admitting he "prepared to dope"
- Bjarne Riis admitting he doped after cutting Basso loose for allegedly doping
- WADA/USADA's handling of, well, everything
- Ullrich still denying doping after obviously being caught
- Hearing "sorry about the picture breakup" 7605 times already
- Cycling.TV changing its web interface such that it's not even usable
- Hearing people claim that we can tell from watching the Giro that everyone is now clean
- Numerous unnecessary crashes near the finish line in race after race

Correct. In fact, that is the lamest moment in pro bike racing this DECADE.

Are you still having problems with it? I've had my fair share, but none during the Giro.

Just like hearing last year about how great it was to have a "clean" TdF.

Absolutely, just 'cause we test for EPO, doesn't mean the sport is clean. Winning is a dirty business, whether it's sport or politics or rival taco stands. Nothing will ever change that.
