Interesting Re: UCI, could this be the start of the end for Pat McQ?

Was poor victim Armstrong really saying that he told Mcquaid that there needed to be a TRC, and that by implication he had told the UCI that he had been doping, prior to the USADA report and the subsequent Oprah-confesion? Why would there need to be a TRC if there wasn't doping?

You wonder what were the circumstances that lead to this.

Like all ex dopers say "there was a fork in the road and I chose the wrong road".

Id llike to know what was the fork in the road for the UCI - there must have been a time when they actively chose not to address this and to go down the road of covering up.

I don't think McQuaid made those decisions, he's inherited decades of bad decisions and missed opportunities.

It's his missed opportunities, the obvious, positive opportunities that he's choosing ignore right now, that what he'll be judged on - i think he simply can't see the wood for the trees. It's a bunker mentality.

Isn't this the classic case of when someone has broken the rules, and they get caught, their first cry out is "But everyone else is doing it?"?

Wasn't this the excuse the MP's made on expenses?

'Pat is just in constant CYA (Cover Your Ass) mode. Pathetic.' quote from Lance in an interview published just now on Cycling News.
