But it isn't about the bike, it's all about the dope

gfb - like I said before, he's just trying to get back into racing by showing willing to  "help" the USADA with names and methods etc. so they will reduce his lifetime ban from sport. Don't waste your time thinking he did this for any other reason.

Bionic IronWolf - I was just having a wee joke -

I am just really disappointed as I have been a big tour fan since the days of Stephen Roach and Sean Kelly... I really wanted to believe him. I watched the interview and I think he is still lying and only doing it so he can compete again.

I bought all his books and feel really cheated as I was foolish enough to support him and argue his corner.

No more he is despicable.

Race again! 

I'm surprised he thinks he can just turn up and join in.

After all, he has to be allowed to enter a race.

And then, the other competitors can refuse to start until he buggers off.

No, he can't just join in - but the point is, if he makes use of the USADA clause that says a ban may be reduced or revoked if a person "actively participates" in assisting them with details, names, dates etc. then he may be allowed to race again. I just hope justice will prevail and his transgressions are seen to be so egregious that even a very detailed account of all the doping that went on won't be enough  to change his ban.

A disturbing new twist!

Cheat, LIFE Ban  Ful stop.

People have always cheated in cycling I was just doing the same.

Blimey - there have always been murderers but doesn't mean I should go out and kill my neighbour.

No worse than the East German 80's drugs approach. Er well actually I don't see a lot of difference.

Ok so East Germany was communist and did it for State reasons. USA is capitalist and does it for money. East Germans didn;t always know what was going on and if they did were forced into drug taking by coaches, state machine. Lance Armstrong knew exactly what he was doing and bullied others.

Note I said USA above rather than Lance Armstrong.

The good thing about this is that USDA took him down because up until now with Armstrong in cycling, Balco in Athletics and a number of other areas, the USA is looking like the new Drugs cheat country in the world and needs to clean up rather than going to WADA and complaining about the BOA life ban.

Lance Armstrong.

Wasn't he somebody once?

"People have always cheated in cycling I was just doing the same."

So he's now been given two weeks to come up with the dirty and then the USADA will reduce his ban - point proven!
