Character is doing the right thing when nobody’s looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that’s right is to get by, and the only thing that’s wrong is to get caught. ~J.C. Watts
Well Alberto, you got caught. I have always been a fan of your ability. I rooted for you when it seemed that your whole team worked against you last year. Unfortunately, today your career may have been defined by one classless move.
Ironic isn’t it. Lance Armstrong who is known for breaking an opponent physically and mentally could not get into your head. Then some kid from Luxemburg who by most accounts is a happy-go-lucky kid forced you to make a completely classless move. You, Menchov and Sanchez took advantage of a situation that you were honor bound to uphold. Odds are you could have taken Andy in the Time Trial. I guess you could not wait.
I am reminded of a Shakespearean quote.
Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
Also, own up to your actions to say “When I launched my attack, I was not aware of the incident. When I was told about it, we had a solid lead and we were going full gas.” Passing a guy dressed in yellow bent over his chain is kind of hard to miss.
