Tuesday Roundup

Daily Telegraph (Aus/News Corp == Fox) says Australian Olympic Committee chair and CAS Vice President John Coates is irked about the Thorpe leaks. He denies it came from CAS as suggested earlier, and he suspects "a European lab" with knowledge of the tests. The lab is not named, so conjectural leaps that this might be LNDD are unsupported. Expect more about this to become revealed over time. How a European lab would get knowledge of tests that we assume were performed by the Sydney lab is also unexplained. Would FINA have passed results on for consideration by a local lab? The FINA HQ is in Lausanne, which would suggest Dr. Saugy's lab in the same city.

Royal Brougham Way wonders if despite everything Barry Bonds can be a unanimous hall of famer? In the process of discussing it he pens the first "snark of the week" candidate about Floyd Landis. He kinds takes a step back on being corrected in a comment, but not very far.

Jon (I am a swift wind sweeping the country) over on My Space gives us a listing of some of his cycling stats and states that fellow former Lancaster,PA resident Floyd Landis did what he would have done too, ride his bike to success.

The White Mountain Road Club promotes the upcoming FFF event to be held in Phoenix,AZ on April 14,2007 at 6PM at Teakwoods.
