I have purposefully stayed away from commenting on the Trial of the Century. I can’t add any value to the unbelievable coverage at Trust but Verify. Commentary is also flawlessly done at Rant your Head Off.
But I have to say that after yesterday’s testimony, I am in a deep funk. Watching this circus is just surreal. The only conclusions one can draw is one or more of the following:
1) Greg Lemond will do or say anything to discredit another American cyclist.
2) The USADA is not above character assassination in their “win at all costs” mode. “He might have almost admitted something in a phone call?” submitted as evidence? Come on!
3) Floyd may have done something wrong (even if it is only his choice in a friend/manager)
I’m sold on the first two and have put my chips on Floyd. I’m leaving them there for whatever it’s worth to you readers.
Why anyone would tune into this sport right now is beyond me. Is the cure killing the host?
