This Day in Doping: Why denial is so insidious

| |

While Alejandro Valverde fusses ‘n fumes over being suspended from Italian competition for two years, a kid tries to take his life after testing positive for EPO.

As long as the top pros refuse to take responsibility for their actions … as long as they continue to deny, obfuscate, deceive and dissemble … as long as they maintain pretense in the sport’s charade of ersatz crackdowns and bogus claims of clean competition …

As long as the sad and ugly and tawdry and corrupt mentality of beat-the-system prevails, as long as Big Money and Corrupt Sponsorship continue to suck talent, honesty and respectability out of cycling — well, folks, this story will go on forever.
