I just knew I could find some humor and restraint here in TAT land,
of course I knew that you miscreants would be taking the piss outta the
poor seppo's (note the clever way I've distanced myself from them).
as for the landis as golden boy etc. jaysus would you look at the state of
US sport? football (not the US or Aussie rules) puhleez, the fact that we
even got invited to the world cup is a wonder to me, and we did so well.
Rugby? there are a few scrums here in the states
but they are mostly populated by embassy workers around washington dc.
Cricket? thats a bug. . .
We've got to hang onto something and well what else is there ?

Personally, I'm sick of the extreme attitudes, "he couldn't have because. . ." and
the "they all do you . . . he's guilty hang em." can't people just discuss it rationally?
that's my rant, and the fact that a really good tour is tainted, whether he's guilty or not.

for what it's worth Flandis doesn't believe the B sample will be any different.

For every case of T/E ratio positive CAS has ruled in favor of the cyclist, that 100%
which makes the test pretty useless.
still I love the sport, warts and all (to quote one Atmo aka e-RICHIE).

Man i'm a sadsac...(no offence badsac!)

no, My XT is 06 with the external bearing BB.

if you want the 05/06 XTR that badly then why not get it? worst comes to worst you can probably Ebay it or sell them on farkin.net and get back the difference. its a horn bit of kit and id have them if it wasnt for the chain ring.

:: edit:: phantom has X0 shifters for 249 and X0 rear der for 239 which i think is stupidly cheap? they did have a good deal on XTR cranks for a while as well.

I was thinking that fury on his face crossing the line was frightening. It sure makes sense.
Doesn't sound like he'll get banned necessarily.
From cyclingnews-
'Some riders can prove that they have an elevated Testosterone/Epitestosterone (T:E) level, if they undergo an endocrine test performed by a credible doctor. Landis said he will use Spanish doctor Luis Hernández, who has helped other riders prove a high T:E count. "In hundreds of cases, no one's ever lost one," Landis told SI.

In 1999, Colombian rider Santiago Botero was able to prove his elevated testosterone levels (over four times the allowed limit) were natural. His doctor at the time was Kelme's Dr Eufemiano Fuentes'

Odin posted Hoggies dribble on page 41, post #1018. The E's are explained at the end of the quoted section.

Hitchy also chimed in on post #1006 with a similar scenario, but using a different E scale (and there are plenty of variants out there).

Well, morally I'd take option A, but sponsors and anyone who relies on the rider finacially would probably take option B.

Doubt Millar had much fun training on the Dole.

So if anyone in Sydney's at a loss for what to do this evening, there's a bunch of bands on at the Mandarin Club in town. SEWEL SIDER, UNIT, EL DUENDE, BLACKSHAW and LEFT ARM OVER.
We're on at 9. If anyone wants to come, PM me for a cheaper ticket.
On again at Tailor's on Central next Thursday.

And the big one Friday the 11th August at Ruby Rabbit. That'd be the pick of the litter.

It's rock. A little bit hard to categorize. Melodic, aussie, driving, meat and potatoes ??? All original songs. I'm gonna start a myspace page, and chuck a bio, picture, song, etc on there. Seems like a decent way to start the ahem marketing.

Is the MasterSound the 6 or (very rare) 12string version? Colour? Action?

As for the JCM, I want one but don't have anywhere to put it. I'm teaching my son to be a rock god ATM and pretty soo he's going to need a bit more cred than the Chinese 10W amp!
