Lee’s Lowdown on Strade Bianche: Valverde and Van Avermaet stain the white roads

Yeah, who to cheer for when one guy is an unrepentant doper, one is under investigation for connections to a dodgy doctor, when one rode on whilst under threat of suspension and the other is copying him?

If you love the sport, recognise the UCI (under current rules) is unable to temporarily stop you racing, know that race organisers are cowards and your team management are without ethics and any understanding why this has to stop, please stop taking advantage of all this weakness and stop crapping on the fans.

Take a stand and sit it out til all is resolved.

We’ve suffered Contador, Valverde and others, now Van Avermaet, who’s even missing a hearing date with the Belgian authorities to ride Tirreno-Adriatico.

One thought

  1. Valverde shits me to tears! Totally unrepentant doper. How the Operacion Puerto case can have a couple of hundred blood bags & hardly anyone busted makes me sick. International sport is so corrupt & now the CIRC report says Masters riders are getting on the gear in a big way. Then CTS does a deal with Strava & that video of Levi! F##k me! & Astana! & around we go.
    So many dodgy dudes with shady pasts making a lot of coin without consequence makes the sport really hard to watch.
