LUNATICS running the ASYLUM ?

Race Cyclists have been told that Anti Doping in the Upcoming US Events will not include " HGH & EPO " , nor will USADA be allowed to participate ! We ALL Know that these are the PEDs of choice in Cycling but UCI has decided to overlook these tests ?

Currently phat the rat is president of the UCI and wishes to continue into a third term . Having lost the original Nomination by the Irish Federation , he then sought that of the Swiss Federation , which is now subject to legal challenge . Behind the scenes he has been active , and in cooperation with a number of MINOR National Federations , has caused to be put forward controversial changes to the UCI Constitution, which they propose to make RETROSPECTIVE ! So controversial are these changes that the Russian Federation has warned of Legal action and the various Media Pundits have had a field day .

Here is a timeline of events this year copied from Cycling News :

It is apparent that phat the rat feels that he should no longer be thought of as Jim Burn ( that 1970s englishman found in contravention of IOC rules in Sth Africa ), but is now emulating the " Dear Leader of Nth Korea " & Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe 's style of leadeship of the UCI and thus Cycle Racing .

42 " Voting Delegates " are responsible for choosing the Future President of the UCI , in an Election that will take place on the 23rd September 2013 during the Firenze Congress . Already we are hearing that there are Items being ADDED to the " Agenda " , normally required to be considered by the "UCI Management Board " before being added . Seems that the UCI Constitution is being challenged , continually , by those under the influence of the current incumbent ? Must be difficult to work for an Organisation , where you are under continual threat of loss of employment , if you do not give way regarding what appears to be a triffling detail ?

Has anyone noticed that there have been , " NO Positives " from the 2013 " Le Tour "? Seems that ALL the Racers , that is the WHOLE PELOTON , decided to mark the 100th Edition of " Le Tour " , by giving up ALL the health products that their TEAM Doctors & Organisation provide them with during their Career ? Of course they will also have modified their OWN Dietry intake to achieve this SPECTACULAR Result ?

Fact is , UCI are in the position of choosing WHAT to test for , and WHEN to release those results ! In past years we have heard of a bunch of " Positives " being discovered on the unattended desk of a UCI Employee ! It was reported that the employees desk was thought to have been cleared when they departed ? REALLY ? Smacks of some thinking that those outside UCI Circles , are thought to be GULLIBLE ?

As mentioned earlier US Races about to take place are going to be denied oversight by USADA . As far as i am aware , USADA , are required to test and then SANCTION any Racer that contravenes WADA Codes ? What is different in the USA , as far as UCI is concerned ? Lance is not racing , LL is not racing , GH is not racing , so if reports from previous years are correct , they should not have to worry about their " Protoges " , failing the " Anti Doping Controls "? Could it be that certain UCI personnel , still have bent noses from their run in with USADA , over the " Considered Decision " from 2012 ?

Copies of Travis Tygart comments , that are pertinent :

  "  “The whole conversation and dialogue around the races, just like we saw at the Tour de France this year, is suspicion about riders which is unfair to those riders. It detracts from the beauty of the sport. It is all happening because of the lack of leadership that back in November said they were going to take decisive and transparent action to put the sport on a new foundation for clean competition. Yet they have done nothing since. 

“We are not doing our job if we don’t speak about the problem this causes. Decisive and transparent action was promised, but nothing has happened. We have been saying this since October 10th 2012. We are approaching a year pretty quick and both clean athletes and those that love this sport are sick and tired of the inaction.”

Pretty clear to me that there is a " SMELL " in the air around Aigle !
My comment to that article :
  "  @mat binns WADA is NOT ALLOWING testing for HGH , EPO ? I doubt that !See my take in 
Wouldn't it be a laugh if Jim burn aka phat the rat , became HEAD of IOC ? He could then grant himself clemency for his 1970s antics , perhaps award himself an honourary GOLD Medal for Cycle Racing ?"

With phat the rat losing a number of prestigious positions during 2012 , it is hoped that Jacques Rogge & co , would not consider leaving the road open to a PROVEN Liar & Manipulator ?
