    Its time to free Lance to Kona

    Surely saying he's never tested positive says more about the testing in his day than his innocence. There was an interesting interview with him on Freakonomics earlier this year and he talks about the incentive to dope extensively and it kind of makes sense - even today. It's difficult to make a full time living as a cyclist and the only ones who really do are the ones who win things and get big contracts, so there is a strong incentive to try cheat the system.

    Well, we don't really (though jury is out on both Wiggins and Froome). Lance admitted to cheating after the mammoth amount of evidence suggested nearly beyond doubt he was. The doping annoys me - but its the systematic bullying that Lance involved himself in that pisses me off far more: for years and year pursuing those who were telling the truth through the courts etc etc when all along he was lying. Has he paid his penance for the moral crimes his doping caused? I personally do not think so.

    While I think there should be a zero-tolerance approach to doping to act as a disincentive, I can see why there is a difference - the magnitude of his cheating was far beyond the average doper. It was a mark in the sand I guess. Regardless, the whole system is screwed up. Ban them all.

    Eugh, Lance's crimes go beyond just doping. Systemic bullying, ruining others careers for one, lying to how many other cancer sufferers. You can't really compare Lance with Vinokourov.

    Any news on Lionel Sanders

    As much as I like Lionel for his honest appraisal of things, I'm not so sure if his self-coaching philosophy worked this time around ...well obviously it didn't as he didn't come close to replicating last year. Being all over your data is one thing, but I think having an experienced person to monitor your performance or at least a second pair of eyes to assess your own training data may be beneficial. Will be very interesting to see his evaluation of what happened. Saying all that, looking at Lange's performance, I'm guessing he would have been hard to beat anyway.

    Biggest Loser 2018 edition

    I'm about 0.4 kg down this week. I have yo-yo'd throughout the week, but working all weekend and not being able to get out for a run didn't do me any favours.

    Sanders still obsessed with jan

    I'm assuming it takes some time to do all the video production, so may have been filmed before Jan pulled out?

    Lionel Sanders Limp

    When I used a sports dietitian for 70.3 last year, she recommended a 750ml bottle per hour + solid food (on bike). I guess it would work for running as well..
