Apart from family, what could be more important than wine and bikes? Of course, there might be the odd rant about other topics on here too...

Another thought about Heras

What if he's innocent?
If the B-Sample comes back negative (or worse, inconclusive), will there be any inquiry into how this news was leaked?  Right now, Heras is guilty until proven innocent.  And given the result of the A-Sample, there will forever more be a cloud of suspicion over a potentially innocent man. I appreciate the desire and the need to rid cycling of drugs, but why is there no repercussion for leaking this news and potentially damaging a great rider's reputation without due cause or process?
