Cycling in Sydney Australia
AKA THE THREAD THAT WILL NOT REST!!!

It is about more than just a bicycle race, or seven, a decade ago. Armstrong's cult of personality, LiveStrong, is a mult-million dollar machine that has been built upon this sham of a narrative. The most insidious con is not that he cheated other riders to win some bike races but that he has cheated millions of people into beleiving (and donating to) him.
He is a fool if he thinks he is going to get away with it, and he has thought that for a long time... whether he still thinks it, I'm not sure.
Hincapies latest media contribution didn't seem to indicate he thought Armstrongs cult was/is all that bad. Maybe he's drinking the same kool aid or forgot about the purported bribe 'deal' that USADA offered him ?
Hincapie said he had not spoken to Armstrong ''in a while'' but again supported him, saying: ''I feel bad that he is going through all this. Lance has done so many things for the sport. His accomplishments are incredible. What he has achieved in the sport of cycling, the attention he has brought to the sport of cycling and what he has done to the cancer society … is honourable. That's all I have to say about that.''

Bloody Queensland meedja.
I wonder how the coverage of Origin is in France.
I'm just waiting to hear that these guys are just lying, bitter cheats with an axe to grind... don't think that is going to wash this time (not that it ever did).
It'll be like when the USSR dissolved and they had to change the maps :P
