On the opening day of the 2014 Tour de France race the peloton will come within about 40 miles of my front door as it barrels through the town of Hawes, in North Yorkshire, and the fact is I...

The Art of Cycling Commentary

A pro-cycling race typically lasts around four or five hours; it takes serious commitment (or a damning lack of anything better to do) to sit down and watch the whole day’s racing from start to...

So who's Joe's mystery Aussie?

Lots of talk about omerta recently, but we're probably all guilty of ignoring stuff from time to time. Joe Papp dropped a none too subtle hint on his Twitter account that Jeannie Longo's husband was one of his clients a full year before ther story hit both the mainstream and the cycling press. Are we going to wait just as long for this story to come out in the open, or is it time for some baseless speculation over this comment he recently left on Gerard Vroomen's blog? there were several other very high profile clients of mine who they chose not to bring charges against, mainly b/c, while there was evidence of their guilt, there wasn’t the same kind of overwhelming evidence that characterized the other prosecutions. So one of those riders, an Australian, is still racing, winning and making $$$ on the bike today (in large part b/c he followed the personal security and anonymity best practices we documented for our clientele…). There was still reliable evidence that implicated him in doping violations, but not enough for USADA’s standards, which set the threshold so high that they don’t end-up wasting time or $$ on cases that are anything but a sure thing.
