Saturday Roundup

The Boulder Report makes a clarification or two and revisits the past with an apology to Greg LeMond fans.

The CyclingNews says the UCI is questioning the commitment of the peloton to a "clean sport".

The VeloNews writes Rock Racing has filed a lawsuit against the Tour of Georgia in an attempt to force its organizers to allow RR to race in the event.

VeloNews also reports a 1 million euro fine has been placed on Jan Ullrich for defrauding the public:

Prosecutors accused the 1997 Tour de France winner of taking performance-enhancing drugs, leading under German law to fraud charges against the 34-year-old on the basis he deceived the public, sponsors and his team.


Science Fiction Twin will be incommunicado until 4/21 and will miss TBV among other cycling news outlets.
