gosh, what a surprise

from coverage of the FLandis circus at Pepperdine:

On Monday, USADA lead counsel Richard Young said that Papp would be brought before the panel of three arbitrators to explain how he used - and benefited - from testosterone during his racing career. [VN]
this is getting weirder and weirder by the moment

one has to wonder what deal was struck with USADA for Joe to finally come clean.

can't wait to see the bitch n' moan mayhem that erupts out east-coast way from this little bit of drama.

oh, the silliness of it all.

It looks like you could hire him if you need some pointers.

I wonder if he ever found his wife?

shawndoggy said...

yeah that was pretty funny/sad/weird. M -- methinks you raced against him in Cuba?

Papp had one of his riders get called for testing at Superweek in '05. Joe wouldn't even escort the non-english speaking rider knowing full well he was hot. Said rider got dinged. Yes, this is getting weird...

"can't wait to see the bitch n' moan mayhem that erupts out east-coast way from this little bit of drama."

I wouldn't say bitch and moan...but the east coast old school R.B.R. crowd is already having a good old time with the Papp "revelation" (ha!).

You did the tour of cuba with Gui? Shit, its a small world.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

yeah ... that was an experience. Cuba with Papp, Herriot, Dietrich, Gui, the Spaniards, Wiesenhof, Mapei back when Pozzato rode with them ... the Cuban mafia, the pharmacies, the needles next to porta-johns ... whatever.

i still never did apologize very well for dropping Gui's bike one time at band camp.

christ, i was a punk ass bitch back then. didn't know my ass from my forehead. but knew enough to stay away from them dopers.

what a joke.

hmmm...funny, yesterday when you went to Papp's homepage the lead article talked about him playing D.S. at Redlands for Rock Racing and how the athlete he coaches...a certain USCF Crit champ who somehow skated a dope charge...won the points jersey. Today that article is missing...hmmm...I wonder if the east coast crews badgering got to him?

If you have not seen it already, this is rather funny:

Wow, the puzzle is coming together. Papp coaches the "US Am Crit Champ". It was pretty odd watching the "crit champ" (Big legs and all) ride in the front group with pure climbers over very long and steep climbs at the Tour of Virginia. It was like watching Holk Hogan climb with a bunch of skinny guys. Everyone was wondering what was up!

jhl ~ oh man, so bad and so good in one breath.

anony ~ the stuff works wonders!

see him in a decade, or two.

but more to the point, look at what a prick he is now. karma (working as metaphor), both instantaneous and delayed in satisfaction.

whatever - let 'em take what they want, i'll still beat 'em. one way or another.

Little_Jewford said... think AFM has an opinion on Papp?

wife was never missing...
she fled!
