    it wasnt so much that it was 3 violations that I think is the 'wrong' here.  If he had actually missed 3 tests I would be less sympathetic.

    But the first 2 violations were simply for being late in putting in his forms.  He didnt miss a test.

    The last violation he did miss an out of competition test - because he was competing, and got tested there.   The team changed his program at the last minute and did not complete the paperwork ... but he got tested in competition.

    So basically he got suspended for a year because he cant fill out forms properly.

    It's not tax return like forms where he has to be so careful, and it isn't that hardto change the dates. There's a link in one thread here about on how short a notice the whereabouts dates can be changed (a beeb scribe went through the procedure).

    Nope, in fact I think the USADA lot got a proper plum deal with 6 months. They deserved the same as Armstrong, a life ban.

    Just saying he shouldn't whinge with the paperwork, I don't file my tax papers, I get in sh*t with the govt.

    If that was the case then none of them would have any ban...

    And in second place would've been the legend John Buchanan (yes, he's Aussie). Wouldn't have that mich competition to be fair.

    Guessing Kiwirider's nomination would've been - Richie McCaw

    And the winner of the 2005 Vuelta is....





    Roberto Heras


    http://www.velonation.com/News/ID/13547/Spanish-Supreme-court-backs-Heras-reclaiming-of-2005-Vuelta-a-Espana-title.aspx

    Huge news imo. For fans of the history of the sport it now makes Heras's name ring out through the ages as the winner of the most Vueltas.

  • Despite the self-serving data benders and associated propaganda to the contrary, I am led to believe that there are pockets of organised, highly sophisticated dopers, even within 'new age' cycling teams. Personally, I don't accept that the 'dark era' has ended, it has just morphed into a new guise.

    http://www.thenewage.co.za/75143-10-53-Suspension_of_Spains_antidoping_lab_due_to_gaff

    Spain's Anti-Doping Agency (AEA) says that the mixing of two urine samples led to its laboratory being suspended for three months on Friday by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).


    AEA director Ana Munoz says that in August "one urine sample was contaminated by a sample from a different athlete that contained a high concentration of a banned substance," according to a statement reported in the Spanish media.

    The statement said that the error was discovered and that no athlete was incorrectly accused of doping. It added that the laboratory's head of quality control resigned on Friday after the WADA suspension.

    The blow to Spain's anti-doping program comes just weeks before Madrid must submit its final bid to host the 2020 Olympic Games.

    As I understand it, in this case it was the Spanish who sanctioned and stripped Heras, and when a court of law  overturned it they even appealed.

    I know what happened, and don't think doping cases should be handled in civil or criminal courts if it isn't a criminal offence.

    Tis a proper farce.
