If you have the patience read this all the way to the bottom. Amazing insight into Hein Verbruggin's character. Damn, what an astounding ass. He's definitely feeling the heat.

I liken Verbruggen to Sep Blatter (FIFA President). And it's not a compliment. Whatever McQuaid has done, it's nothing to the crock of shit dumped on him by Vergrubby!

Here is some more, it's satire but still worth a read. The odd thing is if it was a serious report I wouldn't think it unusual given what has actually transpired.

“We will not let this attack against the good name of cycling stand,” declared McQuaid, “We have ruled cycling with an iron fist and defended our interests in the sport with unwavering authoritarian democracy. We have filed lawsuits against many, many, many, many others and Jonathan Vaughters statements will not go unpunished.”

McQuaid arrived at the decision of having the UCI sue both the New York Times and Vaughters after taking twenty phone calls from Verbruggen early Sunday morning in London, followed by a thumping at the door of his London penthouse, just after breakfast, from Verbruggen.

“Hein was the best UCI president we have ever had. He took road cycling from obscurity to being one of the best and most well-known sporting pursuits in the world. Road cycling is our entire focus of the UCI. Road cycling is what pays our bills at the UCI. We need to protect the integrity of road cycling in order to preserve the cycling brand overall and worldwide,” continued McQuaid as Verbruggen whispered in his ear.

When asked about the timing of the piece in the newspaper Verbruggen was candid, while McQuaid retired briefly to change from his clean shirt into another clean shirt retrieved for him by one of the Olympic volunteers.

“Vaughters has obviously come under the EVIL influence of USADA mafia don Travis Tygart and that man with no conscience David Howman who apparently runs the WADA people. These are all men who are conspiring to take away what we have tirelessly built. Vaughters has embraced an anti-cycling agenda. He has joined those who have campaigned against cycling for the past fifteen years. I will NOT accept this attack,” asserted a visibly animated Verbruggen.

And this never seems to get mentioned:

In July 2008, a BBC investigation found documents indicating that over three million dollars were paid by Japanese race organizers as reimbursements for UCI expenses during Verbruggen's tenure as president, including five flights to the Netherlands for Verbruggen personally in 1999. The investigation cited sources within the UCI who confirmed that the repayments were "explicitly a payback for getting keirin into the Games". Verbruggen denied any wrongdoing, and the UCI ignored BBC requests for clarification.

Somehow, I don't have good vibes about Verbruggen. Hopefully I won't be sued for making this posting. 8) I wouldn't want to sully the reputation of Mr. Verbbruggen and the UCI.

Now there are Us Senators involved. Suddenly, after years of processing doping cases, there is a sudden need for Congressional oversight of the USADA. Despicable to say the least.

For a little background, Conyers tried to obstruct the Marion Jones case and Sensenbrenner is Trek's Congressman.

Ik hou erover op.
I started getting excited because I initially misread erover as "cover" and thought there was about to be discussion about a cover up. Unfortunately, there was not. But of course since the UCI and Mr. McQuaid's hands are clear, as we can gather from his answers, there's nothing for Mr. McQuaid to worry about.

Also, does that grimace in the frozen frame at the beginning of the video remind anyone of a certain former senior U.S. government official, one who has something in common with Greg Lemond's bother-in-law?

Although this document is not up to date http://www.freewebs.com/velodynamics2/NCChistory.pdf , it shows (p. 9) Lance Armstrong as winner of the Nevada City Classic (Tour of Nevada City) in 2009. Presumably per the USADA ruling, he was or should be stripped of this win - that would perhaps make Levi Leipheimer (I'm sure he never doped, LOL) who finished 2nd "on the road", the winner. Lance and Levi wasted all of the domestic pros on the criterium course which consists of a large amount of brutal climbing (and descending).

Hamilton quote "For me what mattered was getting it out there. If we sold one or one million copies, it didn’t really matter" : :lol:

David Millar (Garmin-Sharp) was on hand at the press conference due to his work with the BBC during the Worlds, and he challenged McQuaid's assertion that the UCI had no cause for apology, expressing the wish that the governing body would show more humility.
Millar, what a two faced c%ck.

In fairness to Millar. Immediately after winning a stage in this year's Tour he reminded the press that he was a doper in the past and that they should not forget that. Valverde, Vino etc?

How many other riders did that?

Millar asked questions many journalists in the room were not prepared to so big kudos to him!

That has been mentioned a lot of late.

It is my understanding that the Japanese Keirin folks did not actually "pay" $3 million, as that may have been difficult to explain .. :roll: ... I believe that the arrangement in fact is that Pat and Hein can present items to Japan for payment. Up to $3 million worth. Of course, I expect that more than UCI related bills are getting paid.
