F. Schleck's story re: amigo di birillo

anyone think his story, which I'll paraphrase (from VN) as depositing 7K eu into the account of someone he didnt know to get training advice similar to what the top pros were getting, is plausible?

if so, I'm sending him an email saying I'm a prince from a war torn country, that I have a huge sum of money to transfer from my homeland, but need an account number to which I will deposit the money, and I'll leave him a large amount in thanks for the assistance.

Sure it does - Basso said he thought about doping while sitting on the john, but it went away.

Not before Fuentes could take a few bags of blood, apparently.

I think it's crazy that he hasn't tested positive. He's only getting caught through paperwork...

Those euro pros dont know how to do anything illegal. Got gotta pay cash-money for these things. Leave no paper trail, especially something as bike as a wire transfer. Not that condoning doping or anything, i'm just saying if you are going to cheat, do it right.

money in locker #642 at the bus depot; a white X on the telephone pole at the corner of 5th & Main means the drop has been made.

Isn't Fuentes a gynacologist?

Maybe Schleck was having issues with his mangina.

Sounds like Frank needs to go with the ``smoked but didn't inhale'' argument. It seems to work.

Would have been better off saying "I bought the EPO but didnt inject it" (AKA Clinton + weed defense).

my wife is a physician. At the end of October, we're going to a medical convention. I'll have to check out the doping talks.
