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.What amazes me is that they all got a "parachute" compensation package.....
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.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
That's a typical example of a press release to cover a "jumped before pushed" departure.No doping admission from Yates according to Team Sky: Sky says Yates will retire from cycling, no doping admission was made
it's not like the single days specialists were running on lower octane fuel.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.
