But it seems that times are changing and some of us are in the past. In this mans case. Is his life that boring that he needs to take this shit?? he is on top of his game. Can have what ever he wants. But chooses drugs
I sorta agree, but hang on a bit. When any cyclist starts out, its a hobby - love of the sport, take it or leave it, no more, no less. As you become good and turn elite/pro, the love is somewhat replaced by responsibility. There's no staying in cos its raining or packing a race cos youre not flying. You must give all. Same with musicians. Love it or not, feeling good or bad, you have to perform to those who are paying you. The fun disappears and a release is necessary. So what does boonen (or others) do? Have a new hobby to chill out? When would he fit it in? There's probably more to this pro game than us no-ones understand.
I think he is becoming an addict. Time to come back down to earth. And get real. it will kill him. There are people starving in the world. Dictators are torturing ordinary people. The gap between rich and poor is getting wider. The worlds wild life is being destroyed for greed & vanity. The industrial world wastes foods & the worlds resources. And what does he do?? Gets high.
WoW what a conscience. What a man. What an example to set. Isn't pro cycles a great sport with great people in it
not everyone is geldoff. Very little of my free time and disposble income goes into making the world a better place. And i'll wager I'm not the only one on here. If you do your bit, then chapeau, otherwise we'll all join him in being men of not-so-great conscience.
Should it be the duty of people at the top of their game to change for the world for the better?
To avoid ambiguity, I'll conclude by clearly stating that I'm not condoning any drug taking, either for performance or recreationally. All I'm saying is that theres more to it than we who live in another world appreciate
A bicycle can't stand up on its own as it's two tyred
