 I look forward to his signing for Torku Seker Sport.

Why is it that bad smells have to linger?

    Controversial? Alleged? Well it was alleged and he was found guily, i think that moves beyond alleged and into the world of proven.
    Asking the Torquay Herald to be objective on JTL is like asking the local Murciano rag to be objective on Luisle and Piti, or Ekstra Bladet to be objective on *any Danish rider*, or *any British paper* to be objective on Sky. ;)

    It should happen - but it never will.

    Sometimes it makes no sense which riders are welcomed back and which ones aren't but I really don't think he will be.

    He's not at all likeable or marketable (at least outside of wherever that paper is from) and he's shown himself to be sickly and inconsistent.

    Agree. He's a chump.

    JTL returns to Twitter after two years' absence. Still maintains he didn't dope but otherwise makes some interesting points

    "I held an Elite licence every year I raced since 2003, so I think BC might give me at least a 1st Cat one now.

    "It would be a bit petty if they make me start as a 2nd Cat, and I would be concerned if they stick to it because that might make it more difficult for me to get into 'National' races, especially early in the season.

    "Some organisers prioritise entries according to category, which might put me down the order.

    Hang on, this story isn't in the Plymouth Herald! :o

    I don't know how the distribution of categories is handled in *uk - but it wouldn't be improbable that they simply said: "Hasn't raced for two years, has had results from before that annulled - he'll get a cat. 2 to start with".

    That said, in Denmark the rule is that if you ever reached cat. A (the highest category), you can race in A as long as you want. You can ask for a step down to a lower class if you haven't scored any points in previous year(s); but that would have to be on your request. The federation can't demote you on its own.

    “There was a time I rode the World Championships and we were offered a painkiller called Tramadol,” he told the BBC. “I wasn’t in any pain so I didn’t need to take it, and that was offered freely around. And then we are seeing later on that they are calling for it to be banned and it should be on the WADA list and whatnot.

    “It just didn’t sit well with me at the time. I thought, ‘I’m not in any pain, why would I want a painkiller?’”


    ROFL

    right - so he doesnt need to take tramadol because he wasnt in pain ... but would happily     have a blood transfusion / drink himself into a stupor so bad that he was vomitting the entire next day and didnt drink any water and was therefore so dehydrated at the time of his blood test to give a 57% HCT reading    (choose whichever you think fits  ;) )

    but no no - he definitely wouldnt take that tramadol stuff  -   thats not even banned, why would you want to take that?
