Monday Roundup

News
PezCycling Eurotrash Monday picks up on the FL to Slipstream rumor, but makes it abundantly clear that this is a very conditional on BOTH sides.


CNN.com ( with a Reuters report) frames the story a bit differently with the headline, "Careless Pereiro Cleared of Doping", placing the blame on the athlete.



MSNBC posts an AP report stating that the UCI has roundly criticized the AFLD for its handling of the Pereiro case.



Eurosport reports that Pereiro's test was just a big "mix up".

lactic_acid ran into FL this weekend at the LA Velodrome, and was surprised at F's mode of tranportation and his lack of a posse.

who posted about FL's visit to Arlington,VA two weeks ago, lists the cycling calendar for the DC area for this year including the Shenandoah Mountain 100 to which Floyd has been invited.


infomediality has solved all of sports' doping problems, by suggesting hypnosis. Let's hope the folks at WADA read TBV. Covered before here and here.

mentions the track championships at the LA Velodrome this past weekend which FL attended( and where Sarah Hammer kicked some ass) and mentioned that you can run into almost anyone on a bike in the hills of SoCal this time of year.

ScandalousExpo lures us in with a mention of the NPR story, but grabs us by the, um, throat with this illustration of a book all TBV readers will have to run out and buy, just because:

Thought of the Day

If you define cowardice as running away at the first sign of danger, screaming and tripping and begging for mercy, then yes, Mister Brave Man, I guess I am a coward.

I agree with Starbuck -- and this cover just plain confuses me. Is he sneaking out and leaving a townie bike in his place? Is she cheating on him with a bike? If so, wouldn't it be with a hotter bike?

Carlton at Bike Biz put up a video podcast a while ago that included a short from loveyourbike.org. It's, um, enlightening. And disturbing.

I'll let Carlton do all the warnings in the video. It should be noted that it's an award winning viral video.

How come the UCI/McQuad is slamming the AFLD/LeMonde for going public with Oscar's results, but isn't slamming LeMonde and WADA for going public with FL results?

Everything dealing with the UCI and WADA is so inconsistent, it's ridicules (sp?).
