Excerpts:
"And for those who still have faith in the Indurain years, consider LeMond's comments last year that Pantani was one of the greatest ever. I think that should speak for itself. His wildly varying positions on different dopers are bizarre and indefensible. Greg needs to decide if he’s anti-doping or anti-Lance.”

and last paragraph

“In light of all of this, the comments from Greg, Armstrong, Leinders and Zorzoli, it's not surprising that virtually all legitimate sponsors have fled the sport. It is now financed primarily by bored wealthy men who need a reason to give their wives about why they spend so much time with young leg-shaving men in tight pants.”

Meh...it is not like Floyd doesn't have his own axe to grind against Lemond. Or was that someone else he and his buddy tried to blackmail before his doping trial?

Floyd just really needs to STFU. He proves every time he opens his mouth that he has very little intellectual capacity.

(however, I do agree with him re: sponsors in the sport. If it wasn't for guys like Doug Ellis, Andy Riis, Oleg Tinkov et al, the sport would be in shambles right now.)
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Yeah, it was that incident that led me to declare that Landis was pretty much a douchebag.

I am sympathetic to his plight (believe he was completely jobbed by the system, even though he doped), but as a person? Douchebag.

They're all beating a dead horse, and that includes Lemond.

Floyd is looking forward to his personal pot of gold at the end of the whistle blower rainbow. Keep that story alive!

I respect Greg LeMond. But he needs to let it go....
