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.

"Brilliant morning for an early start; warmish, little wind and dry roads. So out came the Equilibrium for its first ride of the year. Magic."
