Ouch! :-)

So, what kind of question follows that?

I'd like to hear the whole press conference.

Give 'em hell Lance. I've always liked Lance, particularly when he was young and cocky. In his Tour press conferences, he always seemed to really think about what he was saying in an effort not to appear negative or make waves, but I liked his former "from the hip" and "if you don't like it, don't ask" approach. So this bit with Kimmage was great.

Back in the 1990's basically every pro cyclist doped (or very few didn't). It was the culture. In the next decade, I don't know. I think guys were starting to go clean and others weren't, but the full blown "medical programs" that many teams had were on their way out.

This ought to be an interesting year. I think Lance has something to prove and that makes for some high motivation.
