    excellent article published in 2008. validates floyd’s and lemond’s claims that the entire usps 1999 team was on epo for tdf.

    Was listening to the latest podcast, laughing at the comment about shoving a squirrel into a downtube, just after someone mentioned a friend being attacked by a deer – low and behold I look up and this is what I saw on the side of the road….

    Well, that was the worst episode ever. Rumor, innuendo, hearsay, conspiracy theories, and mud-slinging without a hint of real evidence. Did Lance dope? I don’t even care anymore! There’s no real evidence he did. Hell, the only real evidence is that he didn’t. That’s not good enough for the conspiracy wack-jobs, though, because, to them, all the evidence has been suppressed. Proof? Who needs proof anymore? All you guys need is an accusation.

    As for Landis, a self-admitted fraud (that’s what they call it when you lie to get money from people, right?) with an axe to grind because his return to cycling has been an utter failure (no black-balling needed when your race results stink)? Yeah, let’s believe HIM!

    When you guys want to come back from your “X-Files” fantasies, let us know. I have better things to do in the meantime.

  • Thanks for your anonymous comment. I normally don’t approve them, but I was amused by your fake email address (foo@bar.com), so I thought I’d share with everyone.

    The Spokesmen is about opinions. We’re entitled to ours and you are entitled to yours. I regret that you weren’t informed or entertained by our latest show and I hope you’ll come back and give us another try. I also hope you’ll listen a bit closer next time because I think many of us indicated a healthy dose of skepticism about Landis’ claims. Speaking just for myself, I know that I indicated that I agreed with Lance about Floyd’s credibility. Perhaps you, the rest of the Spokesmen and I agree more than you think.

  • David – hang on, did MTS listen to the right show? It’s not my recollection of it.

    The one I took part in was covered in enough caveats and divergent opinions to satisfy every opinion.

    Hi All,

    Great show – Can’t wait for the next.

    PS. David – I was having Spokesmen withdrawls….and caught your TdF Primer – It was GREAT :) Thank you (I’m far from a roadie, and found it v.informative).

    More MtB stuff please :)
