    I wouldn’t be surprised if someone would sabotage another rider. Personal issues with someone outside cycling, or Oleg offering a Sky soigneur 50K to do something the morning at the gloryride to Paris.

    • Stompin

      Or perhaps the rider is trying to advance his cycling career by getting a little ‘help’. Pretty clear when you look for a motive, incentive… what’s to be gained.

    Memorial Marco Pantani. Oh the irony (in an Alanis Morisette way).

    • Oldan Slo

      Alanis Morissette’s lyrics were all examples of bad luck, not irony. You oughta know that.

    Something is wrong with the editing/proofing reading here:

    “Despite putting his name to the document, Taborre

    Meanwhile the team announced the dates that Taborre and Appollonio will face their first hearing . . .”

    There should be something following “Taborre.” I wonder what it might be?

    • Sven

      Noticed that and the 100,000 euro thing get mentioned in two paragraphs close together.

  • Cynic

    The Italians love a good conspiracy theory, there must be a thriving business in exhuming bodies there..

  • Spider

    Fabio had a sensational day on the bike and thought to himself…..man, that barista makes a damn fine coffee!!!! tastes a bit strange…but great for the legs!!!!

  • Papuass

    Daryl Impey also should be on list of unreasonable explains.

    • jakub

      Impey’s explanation was plausible and proven by backtracking of scripts from the pharmacy.

  • ummm…

    How do we feel about riders being penalized in $’s?

  • chiwode

    who can forget Tyler Hamilton’s “unborn twin” explanation? surely that’s on the podium.

  • pedr09

    I really don’t think this is anywhere near creative enough to join the elite excuse club.

  • Durian Rider

    I bet this gets thrown out of court when the team decides to drop charges.

    I wouldnt sign a contract like that as the risk of someone spiking your drink somewhere is too high.

    Not that I believe this guy is natty.

    He is euro and wants to win more. Of course he is gonna get on the gas.

    • Yup, you wouldn’t get Americans cheating would you?
