Never pick a bar fight with an Irishman

That’s just what Greg LeMond seems to have done.  The UCI was OK with Greg’s rhetoric when it was aimed at American riders but when he turned and bit the UCI, that’s when the attitude changed.

McQuaid first asked the question that has been on my lips ever since Greg became the Altar Boy of cycling.  The UCI president said:

“If Greg LeMond was so sure, if he knew so much about the activities that were going on at the time he was racing, why did he not come forward to the UCI then with that information instead of talking about it now?”

Then the statesman took a back seat with the following Godfather like comment:

“Greg LeMond would need to be very careful”

Is there an offer coming LeMond’s way?  One he can’t refuse?

    Was that a thinly-veiled threat to strip Greg of his jerseys?
