Either way given that no-one can now trust professional cycling is it not time for the UCI to be disbanded along with the rest of the organised professional cycling sport and then for it to begin again with a clean slate.
And this goes back to my earlier point that the usda is not only witch hunting one person despite that many are known to have done it but they are also career building and positioning themselves for the top job
Politely, over 26 people so far listed as involved in doping in reasoned decision. 6 sanctioned. 4 sacked / resigned. 11 still under investigation. 5-10 more seem to be at risk of breaking code of conduct on their own teams, 2 or more of the above under federal investigation within their own countries.
Do USADA want the top job? no. WADA wouldn't sanction it as would be the case with the IOC. The UCI are persuing individuals who they feel have libelled them, but so far, they are not persuing the media outlets that published the statements made. At present, no one seems to be chasing Tyler Hamilton or Daniel Coyle for the contents of their recent book. Statements made today by some prominent members of the Pro Cycling community re-iterate that they believe sponsors were complicit in their knowledge of doping. We haven't even touched on the rider who spoke out about their direct contact with people who asked them to take drugs to compete at the Pro level, but refused. The VP of the IOC asked someone today to just move along and admit his past.
I appreciate a lot of the points you have made in this discussion but lets not asssume now that this is now a single issue / single person agenda. It is growing by the day.
