You guys can decide for yourselves how you feel about the statements re: Horner. Suffice to say, it baffles me that, if Horner was indeed Rider #15, that no action has been taken against him. In fact, as fas as I know, the only rider that did not testify and received punishment was 7 himself.

In other words, Why aren't the other postal guys getting outed?
The article implies some will be at some point.
Some folks certInly want more heads to roll, but for others after landing the big prize of LA, the thrill is gone.

as i said in a previous discussion...

USADA went after US Postal's "systemic, sustained and highly professionalized team-run doping conspiracy"... horner didn't ride for US Postal, nor for Discovery. he was an itty bitty fish orthogonal to the investigation and travis had plenty on his plate taking on armstrong.

if horner would have placed in the vuelta where he normally places (or abandons) in GTs then the whole rider 15 thing would be moot anyway. but since he happened to win at age 41, it's kinda renewed interest.
