    I’m disappointed that the cheating rub Zakarin is still riding. Here’s an idea. From this point on ban convicted cheaters for life. We won’t miss them. There will still be winners and losers, heroes and villains, and the sport will be stronger.

      That’s what you got from this series of amazing photos?

      Smell the roses.

      I’m not defending what he did, but he was very young when he got pinged and was in a system that some would argue is institutionally corrupt. I did some dumb things when I was younger, I’d hate for it to be held against me for the rest of my life. I support longer bans for those pinged ore than once though…

        I’m not proposing anything retrospective, but just that from here forward, cheats be banned for life, and from all roles. We don’t need another Vinokourov polluting our sport for the indefinite future. I see no downside to lifetime bans. They can get real jobs. I remain disappointed that cheating grubs like Zakarin are still riding, but am not calling for his head on a stick.
