Am I Overly Cynical?

In the past week or so, there have been three articles published that have had me scratching my virtual beard.

Stuart O’Grady’s article on http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/ogrady-doping-was-never-an-option

Chris Horner’s article on http://www.cyclingnews.com/features/exclusive-interview-chris-horner-on-his-career-armstrong-and-pro-cycling

Finally, cyclingtips.com has introduced the SecretPro articles. His first was more from the “tow the peloton line” http://www.cyclingtips.com.au/2012/12/the-secret-pro-the-off-season/ Wade even turned the comments off on this article. 🙂

At least I know I am not the only one a bit bemused by all these. Even Paul Kimmage weighed in this morning with this series of Tweets.

and finished his comment with this belter!

Whilst ever we have professional riders making comments like this, the humble fan, like myself, is going to struggle to believe any of them. I realise we aren’t in there on the team bus, thus, not getting the inside scoop, but don’t treat us like idiots either. Given what has happened over the past 15 years, we would be idiots to think it all stopped when Lance hung up his syringe.
