    Totally agree. Was scratching around a bit to get updates during last week. I believe they have been making a documentary on Graeme though, so hopefully we will get some good footage when that surfaces.

    First purist win and then second purist in the Canadian GPs as well! Getting the hang of purist now.

    I did get 2nd in a Giro stage and 1st= in a Vuelta stage (although I didn't get a prize because of a coin toss Crying Crying Crying throws his toys out of a pram). Can't dig something up for me Dave, can you? please! Loyal member of the forum etc etc. On a coin toss for f**** s***!

    Getting stage wins in GTs is very difficult, even in the fantasy world. How many have other forum members got exactly?

    "And I know when I'm being lied to and there are big holes in this. Although I would like to hear something from USADA."

    USADA have spoken and stated that Chris Horner is not suspected of any wrongdoing. So they must be "head in the sand, see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil apologists that allow this sort of thing to go on unquestioningly." Or maybe they are part of the conspiracy.

    I don't know when I'm being lied to; it's a fault of mine, I admit (although Chris Horner hasn't personally contacted me on this issue), but I prefer it that way rather than being overly cynical or negative.
    I'm with other posters in preferring to presume someone is innocent until proven guilty (it's a good principle, even if it takes a long time as in the case of LA; generally the truth will out) and I guess some will say that these events need to be questioned for the truth to emerge and that's true and I guess that's the job of USADA, WADA et al. But many posters are condemning rather than questioning and keeping an open mind; I think Wiggo hit the nail on the head when he spoke about the Tweeters last year:
    'It's easy for them to sit under a pseudonym on Twitter and write that sort of s***, rather than get off their a**** in their own lives and apply themselves and work hard at something and achieve something.
    'And that's ultimately it. C**ts!!"
    Well said, Sir.

    I think the correct word is not 'interesting', but 'unsubstantiated'. Only time will tell.

    Still not convinced about internal cabeling on cross bikes. I'd be worried that it provides an entry point for water into the frame and add a little unwanted ballast. (Yes I know they are probably sealed with grommets and the cable has a housing around it but...)
