In his statement in response to the defense fund, Kimmage promised to repay the show of support with renewed efforts to clean up professional cycling. Today, he struck back with a criminal complaint against Verbruggen and McQuaid in Swiss criminal court:

Whether this is the best tactic, I don't know. But as velo news says:

Quote:
The move marks a turning of the tables . . . now, it’s the journalist on the attack, emboldened by a seething public and a defense fund that raised more than $85,835 in his name to combat the cycling union’s legal attack.

I still want to know who controls the funds and some sort of accountability of where those funds are spent.

I dunno, but clearly Kimmage is putting them to good use. As the old saying goes: "The proof of the pudding is in the eating."

Here's a follow-on article from cyclingnews:
