Sippy - Sounds like quite a guy! Too bad he didn't do the tour. Those old guys were tough.

I was in the stands with the American Embassy crew at the finish line when Greg LeMond won. It was quite a spectacle. I sure hope he keeps his medal. Who's next, Eddy Merx?

One can only hope it will end Pano, but if some of the era were at it, likely hood is that they all were.
Yes, Robert 'Bob' Hudson was one helluva guy, he met Tommy Simpson at a national award do and told him to 'bugger of you cheating scum bag'.
When Simpson died on Mon Ventoux he told my mother 'Told ya so, a cheating scum bag'.
Both parents rode, Father rode the Ras (the other tour of Ireland) and the Milk Race as a 1cat, earned the points for an Elite ticket but joined the R.A.F. as it was a better career choice (didn't want to do drugs). Mother was in the top ten in the womans national standings for 2 years before she had me - she rode her training bike to work till she could no longer swing her leg over the bars, 8 months pregnant.

Then he should stand in court like a man and prove it Bugun.
What makes him so special that he cant?
Saw an interview of him at some event and he was very 'whatever, the charity can stand on its own two feet,my sons got years of riding in him blah blah blah'.
Just the fact he belives wada cant take his titles (and he dont recognise them either) away is damn arrogant (which he's proved countless times in the peloton, post race interviews etc)....... only cheats and bullies are thus.
