Change of mind

A few days ago I wrote a short piece about the guilt of Armstrong and how cycling might move forward through some sort of Truth and Reconciliation process. Dick Pound the ex-head of Wada must have read my blog ;-) because that’s exactly what he proposed a couple of days later. But, having read the always excellent Inrng’s blog on just this issue and today, the Cycling News report of an interview with Irish journalist, Paul Kimmage I’ve realised I was wrong. There is simply no way pro cyclists would deal with a truth and reconciliation process if they didn’t trust the body that ran cycling (the UCI). Until there is root and branch reform at that institution and certain individuals are removed then, sadly the sight of pro cyclists speaking out will continue to be an extremely rare occurrence.
