Do we have a cycling mafia, well perhaps that's a strong word he used but do we have powerful secret forces at work behind the scenes. Oh the drama of it all

Yes, the cycling mafia is headquartered in The Sudan, and it's head is the notorious former pro wrestler(and Tyler Hamilton's fraternal chimera twin brother) Abdullah the Butcher.

A friend of mine from boarding school used to wash his cars as a kid-he tipped very well!!!

So he's not really "The Madman From the Sudan?" He's just...Larry? :cry: :cry: :cry:

LMAO,

Yeah, OT but the first time I saw the guy I almost pissed myself and ran... He actually acted a little nuts even when in a semi private setting, but after seeing him a few times, he would wink after he made one of those wierd barking noises. Tha fucher would also eat literally anything. He ate a hamberger without unwrapping it at a Mc Donalds that was on the same street...

Sorry,

Back to the Mafia.

Actually, Hamilton hits the nail on the head.
- Zipp rims will break if you look at them too hard
- R-Sys wheels will spontaneously explode
- The ZG crankset will never, ever exist
- Everyone needs Lightweights, even if they're fat and old
- Parts actually made of metal are SO 10 years ago

Please expand on this. It would not surprise me. I play Violin and believe it or not we have a "violin mafia". I also fence saber and here in Virginia we have a "fencing mafia". This is how they are referred to by many folks but I suspect its a little exaggerated. Never seen a violin player with broken kneecaps. Even if we have a cycling mafia I am not sure what involvement he is suggesting. Failure to administer the law fairly or are the setting up riders
