What happened to Tiernan-Locke? The same excuse as Floyd....”I got pissed on the eve of the World Champs and was dehydrated” :lol: oh yeah....he’s British.

Or “my body is unique and secretes salbutamol instead of sweat when I excersise”. :lol:

Jan Ullrich is still in the popular media in Germany and reported now out of treatment again for substance abuse. Nice enough fellow but troubled.

Nice enough to cause harm to others on a seemingly regular basis. Chocking a woman until she passes out is not my definition of nice. Being arrested for breaking into your neighbour's home, threatening and assaulting them them is not nice. Persistently driving while under the influence of alcohol and cocaine is not nice. Surrounding yourself with drug dealers is not nice. Driving your car into bicycles are then fleeing the scene is also not my idea of nice.

This is one example of the carnage he caused, putting others into hospital:

Troubled - yes.

Needs help, yes (has persistently refused help for more than a decade - his first wife left him because he refused to get help).

Amazing bike rider (despite the doping) - yes, a phenomenal talent.

Nice - no.

Hopefully he has found rock bottom and finally gets himself sorted.

It's a crying ass shame what the Jan is doing to himself. I still pull out the Rudy Tayo's and Telekom gilet now and then. My all time fav. rider...in a manly way of course :lol:

I note that Armstrong continues his road to redemption using this. Maybe there's genuine concern, maybe not. He did make sure we knew about it.

And on that, I note that Cycling Tips is an enabler!!!!

When I meet him and translated in an interview, my impression was 'nice enough fellow'. This was after the Telekom days, night club sagas and, if I recall, after one crash. Hope this context clarifies the comment.

Last roll of the dice to pick up a contract for 2019. BM had informed him in June there was no contract for 2019.

Wonder why he had been told so early - non-performing or some other non-mentionable reason ? Was in the Giro team ....
