Virenque...funnier than a mime in a blender

Am I the only guy who thinks that Richard Virenque is dang good entertainment? I love this quote from Pro Cycling Mag

"given that you only have to make the most anodyne comment to Virenque to get a 15-minute self-justification, was plenty enough"

This, in reference to a comment by Bahamontes about Virenque being unworthy of the KOM record...again...

But I can always hear Virenque's "Olympic Gymnast" squeaky steroid voice defending himself...and I almost die laughing...

What's the point of this post....who knows?

Until I read that article, I didn't realize there was so much animosity towards Virenque.

Now I watch the videos and understand the reactions from within the Peloton. But the French public loves him!
