You would have to be willing to ignore alot to not see the obvious pattern of Quid Pro Quo at the UCI.mohair_chair said:And the two are similar how?
What's "OCC"?bigpinkt said:Jesus Manzano said that it was not just his team that received advanced notice of OCC but the Postal Doctors received this as well....certainly this had nothing to do with the Lance's $500,000 "Donation"
Wow, once again you read an article and suddenly you're an expert. Not very impressive.bigpinkt said:The Keirin association got what it paid for. With your limited knowledge of cycling I would not expect you to understand that the Keirin does not belong in the Olympics. It has little to do with cycling and is all about Gambling. What's next? Is FEI going to invite Big Brown and friends to race at Sha Tin next week?
If the story about the lab is true, then:Under ACrookedSky said:Recently it was reported that a lab was offering to make a B sample negative for a 100K euros.

Nope,mohair_chair said:If the story about the lab is true, then:
The labs are associated with WADA, not the UCI. The UCI may be corrupt, but it only hires the labs for testing (as mandated by WADA).
It could just be a matter of opportunism. If the whole system is corrupt and people and organizations are taking money under the table at various points in the process then it becomes easy for a lab, when presented with an opening, to decide they want to get their piece of the action.mohair_chair said:2. It certainly raises serious credibility issues with the drug testing labs, and validates the questions that some posters here have gotten ridiculed for. If someone is going to pay 100K for a false B sample, that's a strong incentive for the lab to generate positive A samples by any means necessary.

The UCI is a mess.
Yet another UCI board member that says that the UCI can not be trusted....

Poor Landis should have never pissed off the UCI by demanding his salary from the UCI bank guarantees when Noble House folded.
The UCI is corrupt, and their dope testing has been a fraud.
