stump the kazakh - ver 2.0

VN reports on a Gazetto report (which i now report on ... internet regurgitation isn't journalism, is it?), talkin' bout an un-named I-taliano sprinter-type who says everybody must dope to win. Can the crazy Kazakh identify the sprinter based on the limited tantalizations?

now retired for five seasons who won "six major races" during his career at the elite level.

Me? I've no idea. But, it's rather disheartening to hear such fatalistic charges against the sport. And yet, without more of this ... how will drugs in cycling be stopped? Is it worth all the humbug and hoopla? I think so.

I approve of idealism backed with pragmatic spankings.

where's your guru now, pretty boy?

Now going on way less than a thousand calories for the past 3+ days ... shyte, that might be edging towards a fast for spiritual growth. And, it's true ... my mind does seem to be wrapping around itself ... looking in and seeing out at the same time, both visions blurry and with fatigue. Intellectually, I know I should be hungry ... and there is a discomfort throbbing around my midsection ... but, the thought of forcing something down my stomach does nothing but revolt me. bizarre.

But, as i sit here straightening a few things at my desk before calling it a day to head home ~ i do feel surges of emotions buffeting through me. As though the physical energy I so lack has transmuted itself into a whirling dervish of emotions, shuddering through me in random blasts, leaving me dizzy with discomfort on how to identify the source or direction.

and the other essential clue - he's a carpenter now. Which means he was no superstar.

hmmm, I wonder if it's Cippo?

ginmtb said...

Soup and beer... nice.

Get well. I'm still feeling the energy drain from the D-ville weekend. Feels good doing nothing.

Velo Bella said...

Cippo? working as a carpenter?

Egaaads thats funny.
I wonder if I can hire him to build my stairwell?

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

shouldn't there be a step between soup and beer?

Bernie said...

Any of you pick up on Alexi Grewel's comments in his letter to Velo News? Wasn't that the year the Olympic Team blood doped?

Reed Maxwell said...

I caught that too. I'm pretty sure it was the 1984 olympics when the US cycling team blood doped and won more medals than ever.

Dr. X said...

OV is back! x-bunny is correct - too much fluid, need some bulk in there. Or some doping products....

Eclectchick said...

Is anyone else as sick to death of LeMond's yapping as I am??

Just wondering.
