I predicted this one: his performance dropped off this year so it was a chance to dispense with a rider who if anything was likely to only slip further. Good chance to make an anti-doping stand and reduce payroll at the same time.

Sacking the rider is the same old system that makes that cycling will never change: the managers and doctors are left untouched. Lefevre, Ibarguren, Van Mol, they're in charge year after year after year, despite their dodgy track records.

Maybe he wil go to Garmin. For a team set up to have an open policy .Danielson, Vande Velde and Zabriskie and Millar plus JV himself. It's turned in to a graveyard for ex-dopers . Poor old Ryder and Dan .

Maybe the team fired him because he quit doping. With his advancing years, now more than ever, he needs to "step up"* his game.

* dope, please dope, just don't get caught

I didnt properly glue my tubulars and my challenge tires slipped off the rim before the race.. had to borrow some wheels with no tread. Not good on a course like that. Look for me at Koppenbergcross on Nov 1. Same kit, same bike, different wheels.

Thanks for the link. He's gone up in my estimation. When riders make statements like that I tend to believe. Maybe an answer to those on here who think everyone's doping.

Anyone actually watch the Levi movie trailer? Catch the clip where Armstrong does a lazy, 'non-pro' stand up and goes straight back into what looks like Levi (looks like Horner infront of Armstrong) causing him to crash? He trying to insinuate that Armstrong was jealous of his success?
