"“I have been robbed by drug cheats, but I am fortunate, I am here before you with more in my basket than the 12 year old dreamed of. But for many genuine people out there who do ride clean; people with morals, many of these people have had to leave the sport with nothing after a lifetime of hard work - some going through horrific financial turmoil. When Lance “cries” on Oprah later this week and she passes him a tissue, spare a thought for all of those genuine people who walked away with no reward – just shattered dreams. Each one of them is worth a thousand Lances.”"
You absolutely have to read this - it’s not a surprise Nicole Cooke’s retiring, but her statement is explosive! So much here - no punches pulled on Lance, Tyler Hamilton, Genevieve Jeanson, the UCI, British Cycling and so much more. Seriously, click through right now!

"The Women’s Tour of New Zealand will not take place in 2013, due to the increased cost of International Cycling Union (UCI) drug testing, according to stuff.co.nz. According to race director Jorge Sandoval, in the wake of the Armstrong scandal, the UCI will not allow testing to be carried out by the national anti-doping agency, and the race must bear the cost of it being carried out by the UC"
So much wrong with this story - why the UCI is doing this, why the race is cancelling the women’s race not the men’s one, etc etc(via womenscycling)
