ok as you know i often decry the lack of top pros making their feelings about doping heard but, amazingly, today in CyclingSnooze there is a fine little article about the reactions from within the peloton to the news of Santambrogio’s doping positive.
copied here in full:
“I hope cycling followers realise that s(t)upidity of the individual can’t be banned. Damaging our credibil(i)ty anno 2013 deserves no 2nd chance.” Stef Clement (Blanco)
“I just don’t get it!!! What are they thinking? What actually goes on in their mind? STOP CHEATING DICKHEADS.” Greg Henderson (Lotto-Belisol)
“The peloton knew Vini Fantini weren’t trustworthy: was the talking point for the first week of the Giro (until misery & survival took over).
“The UCI doping controls are there to catch the dopers when nobody else will stop them. It’s wonderful to see we can trust the system.” David Millar (Garmin-Sharp)
“It’s to be expected some will take the opportunity to cheat with big gains now cycling is much cleaner. Let’s hope we’ll never see them back.” Koen de Kort (Argos-Shimano)
“It’s hoped with the last shot of “flushing” we also released the last of the idiots! There are no words!” Manuel Quinziato (BMC)
and just, wow, awesome, great work guys! you’ve punked my crank for the day…
