Good news, Yates's attempts to conceal his awareness of doping at USPS were pitiful, he has 'form' too.

Yeah... I called this a couple days ago. I just KNEW Yates had to be involved in something. Sometimes I hate it when I'm right...

What amazes me is that they all got a "parachute" compensation package.....
In addition to encouraging them to confess now rather than being found out later, it depends on how their contracts were structured. Previous involvement in doping may not be a valid reason to terminate the contract, hence the compensation. I bet the new contracts are worded differently.

Guys......they all doped and still are doping. There is no possible way to finish any grand tour and be clean.

I can just see cycling go down the drain real soon.......thanks to the great usada :D
And if you "see cycling go down the drain real soon" then we should just go ahead and classify you as a Pharmstrong fanboi and casual fan.

They said the same thing after Festina. It didn't happen. They said the same thing after Vino and Ricco's positives at the tour. It didn't happen. They said the same thing when Rasmussen was pulled in yellow. It didn't happen.

It won't happen this time, no matter how much you hope it does.

"They said the same thing after Festina. It didn't happen."

It didn't happen mostly because of Armstrong.

I still say that it's a great thing when you beat the best dopers in the world.

Its partly cycling's fault. Grand tours are ridiculous. A single sporting event that lasts for weeks. Stupid.

Cycling needs to make lots of changes. Over - emphasis on grand tours is one of the many needed changes.

it's not like the single days specialists were running on lower octane fuel.
