Hein and Phat , listen up ! There are people doing the work that your minions have chosen not to do , YET ! As people will see , some are able to see the wood from the trees , and reach fairly logical conclusions from the existing information available . Of course that tome written by shamilton may change a few things in the information made available by their efforts !
Listed below in date order , are the blogs that i have found presenting their conclusions and worthy of your attention :
My coming across these blogs , came through a variety of resources , but i feel sure that the " Clinic " on CNF , had something to do with that . Seems the mushroom farm is good for something worthwhile occasionally .
What a pity that the " UCI " is such a mess of problems that both Cadel , as indicated by the conclusions drawn , for 2005 and Georg Totschnig in 2004 , will not be presented with their wins when the 2013 edition of " Le Tour " begins on Corsica ! In celebrating the 100th Edition of " Le Tour ", would it not be great to see ONLY those who are " Clean of Drugs " participate ?
Please take note of what was said by " Scotslawyer ":
" What this exercise does, I think, is demonstrate the futility of looking to
change the record book by awarding titles, long after the fact, to people who
did not win on the track or field.
This is different from disqualifying Ben Johnson the day after his 100m win
at Seoul. “Fixing” the result within days, or weeks is probably in order, and in
fact even within a year of the event would be possible.
However, going further than that risks creating strange results, not
reflective of competition.
If, for example, the first seven finishers in the 2000 Tour had not entered,
or had been disqualified as the race proceeded, then Escartín and his Kelme team
would, in all probability, have had to ride the race in a totally different way,
and the people who were just behind him in the General Classification would have
attacked differently too. There is a big difference between how a rider races
when 18 minutes behind the yellow jersey, and 18 seconds behind.
That is why my idea, which, when I started this piece, seemed a whimsical
one, namely the Tour D’Utopia, could in fact have a place in sport. "
Some people think that the IOC is as badly run as the UCI and with the board of WADA having people like Phat as members of the Foundation Board of WADA , one wonders if there is not a taint of suspicion ? How much linkage is there between WADA and SportsAccord when WADA funds the Salaries of SportsAccord personnel ?
Governments will listen to the IOC and WADA through their National Branches so it is not difficult to believe that these bodies have the power to seek their cooperation in instituting an " AMNESTY in ALL SPORTS "! Would it not be worth while for Governments to allow Athletes to avoid " Double Jeopardy " when they choose to cooperate with a " Truth & Reconciliation Commission " in the allotted Time Span , thus paving the way to discovering and destroying the resources and incomes of Criminals supplying the Products used in Doping ?
With WADA conducting a meeting in Stockholm concerning " Doping as a Public Health Issues " , attended by World Health experts from the likes of World Health Organization ( WHO ) , the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the United
Nations Education, Science and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), INTERPOL and
WADA . Link for more details here :
Earlier in the week there was another meeting in St Petersburg of the " Athletes Commission " regarding changes to the World Anti Doping Code , link here :
Those at this meeting were concerned with the " Code review process " and their personal experiences will help to shape the 2015 version of the WADA Code ! People such as David Millar will be able to relate their experiences at the sharp end of the WADA experience ! In visiting the following website you will notice the background is of a Wheelchair race which no doubt will remind people that even Paralympians are involved in the collection of data needed to shape the 2015 WADA Code !
2012 London Paralympics detected several users of HGH , using new testing procedures , only recently introduced . That they were not used at the 2012 Olympics , was a policy decision by those in the IOC , seeking to avoid controversy . Perhaps they used the tests but decided not to publish the results ? " Shamateurs " use whatever they can get their hands on for what purpose ? You guessed right , " BRAGGING RIGHTS "! Of course Professional Athletes would not stoop to these means to inflate their income , prestige or EGO , would they ? Some years ago i overheard Masters Cyclists " bragging about their " Supplements and bike weights " , they still continue , no doubt with the same methods , to attend events , thinking they need these underhand abilities to enhance their lives ?
AS to the minor placings for the years that LANCE won , do we need to bother ? Doubtful that anyone cares ! Only Contador seems to have been replaced in the records and that by a suspected Racer who regularly follows the same training regime as his brother . Mud sticks , so it is not surprising that Andy has not taken the step of returning to racing after his Spinal problems mid year .
Off to watch the end of the Women Road Race and then out on the bike if the rain will only stop for a while .
