The director doth protest too much, methinks

Apologies to Shakespeare.

Johan came out firing after the Cyclingnews article had Jan Ullrich going to Discovery.

“I am currently not in any negotiations with Jan Ullrich to become a part of the Discovery Channel. Although I believe Jan is a world-class rider, our roster for 2007 is nearly complete and Jan will not be a part of our team.”

Also Pat McQuaid found a camera and microphone to say he would block any attempt for any Operation Puerto rider to ride next year.

This off-season is shaping up to include all sorts of fireworks as suspended riders look to save their careers. While McQuaid and Pound look to salvage what’s left of their reputation.

    I smell a rant …
