Cleared...Fired...Retired: Pick Two
I am looking forward to this season. Mostly because Pro Cycling is in a precarious position. With credibility and sponsorship hard to find and two of it's biggest stars of the past decade plagued with controversy, what happens this year, both on and off the road, will go a long way in determining the future of the sport.
The good news is that the peloton is still full of talent. The bad news is that the bureaucracy is still riddled with greed and corruption. Nobody wants to give up their piece of the pie to facilitate a more efficient, transparent, system. Mongo is still a firm believer that talent always wins out in the end.
