Sorry for sounding like a jerk, but who cares? A guy that rides a bicycle really well. It's not like he is out there doing something that matters.

I mean it sucks the dude got hurt. I just don't understand why sports people are put on a pedestal.

it took me awhile to deal with the Lance Armstrong thing. I don't know him, but know folks who do. He is, according to all that I know that know him, a jerk. No one who actually knows him believes he was innocent.

And I bet that few would put retaliation past him.

Just sayin'.

Yeah, you're right - but Bradley Wiggins is one cool man - but then again anyone who likes Lambretta's and Vespa's is ok in my book.

A mate of mine was drinking with him at a special Stone Roses concert, reckons he's a cracking bloke.

Not too sure about any sort of conspiratorial angle to it all - but who knows.

Hope he's ok soon.

I was thinking exactly the opposite. In my opinion, it makes no difference if Lance was innocent or guilty for the PED's, they are part of modern sports like it or not, and since it is a high-tech game of cat and mouse with elite doctors in the mix, I don't see why they are illegal in the first place. Besides, the guy went through Chemo and came back! I think a little PED's to counteract the Chemo is only fair.

SO, in my opinion, the French Authorities de-throned Lance, and now maybe they are going after the British?

Probably just a coincidence, but if there is any conspiracy afoot, I think it starts in France.

Though I hate to say it, but perhaps there is another angle to this. Perhaps the cycling fraternity are trying to amplify thier case for safer roads for cyclists?

I mean if we are really, REALLY going to suggest that because two people who are part of the most at risk road user demographic in the land, who happen to work together, getting knocked off thier bikes inside of a twenty four hour period is somehow suspicious, then its worth looking at it from that angle also.

Me personally, bearing in mind the fact that cyclists are the most at risk road users in the country, I can swallow the coincidence. I can certainly swallow that an awful lot easier than I can swallow the fact that we live in a capitalist nation, which laughingly claims to be democratic.
