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...

Hard to disagree

Whatever about Tyler Hamilton and Roberto Heras continuing to protest their innocence, I have to agree with Big Mig who was recently quoted saying cycling is in part suffering from bad press because it is more focused on cutting out doping and its anti-doping measures are tougher than other sports.

Given the joke that is Major League Baseball's approach, it's hard to disagree with Indurain who says that "Cycling wanted to be at the forefront by introducing the toughest measures and in the end it hasn't worked well for the sport. The rules and regulations should be international, totally clear and the same for every sport."

I couldn't agree more!
