The CyclingNews reviews the LeMond/Trek lawsuits revealed yesterday with some historical perspective. Speculation abounds that LeMond's response to Trek's assertions is expected today.
The Boulder Report writes about the acrimonious, and unsurprising, lawsuits filed by Greg LeMond and Trek. Joe Lindsey notes that it involves much more than just the bottom line, it's intensely personal:
With this story's convoluted tangle of business interests, money and personal feelings, it may take months or even years to sort out the specifics. In the meantime, it will continue to be an open wound on the sport and the bike business. Whichever party you feel is in the right, (Trek president John) Burke was dead-on when he said "Today is a sad day for American cycling."
Lindsey pointedly notes that Trek's sales chart LeMond bikes offered in support of their position stops at 1999, which makes it kinda hard to see what the trend has been lately.
In more of The Boulder Report Joe Lindsey continues his posts about the Greg LeMond/Trek story, and admits his bias to liking LeMond, even though Joe doubted many of LeMond's claims of doping cyclists early on.
ESPN posts an AP report in which new WADA president John Fahey cautions those who would cheat the HGH tests not to even try it:
"I suppose my greatest fear is that cheats get away with it," Fahey said. "What I want is an effective system that will find the cheats."
The Radfords reminisce about a July which now seems long long ago, and then snark about Floyd Landis' current state of employment.
Tyler Ford considers "Positively False" one of his top ten cycling reads.
Steroid Report/Gary Gaffney adopts LeMond's posture on the law suits, that it is all about covering up Lance's (alleged) doping. Comments run the other way.
Bike Radar does the same, cited by Gaffney.
The Chutry Experient saw "Bigger, Stronger, Faster" and found it interesting on many levels. He notes the sympathetic interview contained in the movie with Floyd Landis.
