Asthma! What's all that about then? And some other stuff...

I occasionally post over on the Dark Side (the CW Forum) and one of the threads is a World Tour Predictions League, with only a few races to go I am, as you'd expect , manfully bringing up the rear but can't bring myself to vote for Lizzie Armistead/Deignan or anyone on Team Sky. To miss three blood tests as World Champion in an Olympic Year, beggars belief, and with widespread Tramadol abuse, a token 'no needles policy' and a ridiculous number of 'asthmatics on both Team Sky and Team GB, we have to question whether our anti-doping system is and less reptehsible than the Russians and the strangely silent Spanish. Hushed up Operation Puerto rather conveniently.  Next week, I turn my attention, and not before time on the devil's own dangly bits...

The trouble with rules is that they encourage the less principled to find ways around them.  I sometimes think there should be only one: your participation must leave the sport in a better state.  If anyone is accused of trying to bend that rule a jury should give a decision within a couple of hours, aided by whatever video/witnesses are available.  There would be only one penalty - a lifetime ban.  No appeals would be allowed, no discussions entered into.

Just watch 'em behave under my system.

".... I'd completely forgotten just how hilly Dorset can be. My next little adventure may be somewhere less challenging, East Anglia perhaps?"

"Just enjoyed a few days bike-touring the Jurassic Coast. My lady says it was one old fossil looking for other old fossils. Cutting but true."
