sooooo, alessandro ballan? i know they're still investigating, but very disappointing if true.

and if anything is proven against cunego as well, then i'm probably going to stop watching pro cycling altogether. he's been one of the most outspoken anti-doping riders in the peleton in recent times, so to find out he's been lying all along would seriously piss me off.

IMO, its was quite obsious...

ANd Cunego, you're totally right, he even sports his little happy face sticker on his arm to protest against cycling doping....

It's funny you say that against Ballan, because I heard the opposite, in that he left Lampre because he knew there was stuff going on behind closed doors and didn't want to be a part of it or associated in any way. Obviously he left his decision too late...

Cunego has never been on illegal stuff - That's why he almost never wins :D

Great headline on the BBC news page:
"Sky star ruled out of Paris race"

They do, of course, mean Paris Roubaix when they refer to this 'Paris race'! :D

Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing Millar playing at the front of the bunch again and hope to see Hammond in the breakaway group.

For Ballan, a little different with this one - no one is accused of using at this point but I wouldn't be surprised. Too bad, might have been able to help George.

The investigation sounds interesting enough, as it's stated they're more concerned with those who sold the products as opposed to who took them.

Still and all, if Basso went for 'intention to dope' then whoever took them, regardless of the lack of positive test results, is gone too.

Will be very surprised and disappointed if it is so with Ballan and Cunego.

Do we know who BMC's replacement riders are? I'm a little surprised Kroon wasn't in the initial squad.

Roger De Vlaeminck talks about P-R

note: some of flemish expressions translated poorly :lol:

"Rather Cancellara than Boonen" Sporza - 09/04/10 vr 09/04/2010 - 17:33
Roger De Vlaeminck is still the record holder with 4 wins[..] "Behind Cancellara and Boonen it's third category"

Parijs-Roubaix
"I only see 2 possible winners: Cancellara and Boonen. The rest is not 2nd category, but 3rd category [not to be taken literally]. Cancellara and Boonen break away when they want to. In de Ronde Boonen came short. I am not sure how he can make up for that [form] in one week".

Belga "But I hope Boonen has closed the gap [form] , then we will see a nice final. I'd rather see Cancellara win though"

If Tom Boonen wins, his [P-R] tally comes at 4 wins, equaling Roger De Vlaeminck's record.

"I'd rather see Cancellara win, but if Boonen is the best, it's ok for me if he wins. I care about my record, but i am not going to [get ill over it]."

What does Roger De Vlaeminck think of the other favorites?

Filippo Pozzato: "Had diahrea this week. After 220 à 230 km he is finished."

Juan Antonio Flecha: "Why does he let his team work in de Ronde ? He doesn't know himself. Something like this did not happen [in our time], I don't understand it."

Matti Breschel: "Who is he? What has he proved? Won Dwars door Vlaanderen ? That is nothing compared to De Ronde or P-R. He had some bad luck, but I don't pity him, and Cancellara won't either."

Stijn Devolder: "Nice guy - it's ok [i'd like it] if he wins. He can go a long way, but at the end he is probably not strong enough.."

Leif Hoste and Johan Vansummeren: "[It's going to be nothing]"

Thor Hushovd: "If in form he could compete, but I have not seen anything from him this year. He was not good in "De Ronde" either ? It's probably [going to be nothing]."

Dear me, Boonen appears to cooked his chook. Flecha's finally deciding to work, but I'll be surprised to see Fabu caught.
