The Soap Opera Continues

:pSo,.....the one and only Mario Cipollini has come out of retirement to ride The Tour of California with the Rock Racing team.......Tyler Hamilton was set to make his second out of doping retirement comeback with the RR team until the ToC organizers said 'No Way Jose'......he's still under investigation......so are a couple of other RR riders......now Rock Racing are not sure if they will even start tomorrow.......here I was hoping to see Freddie Rodriguez lead out Cipo in the sprint finishes, or better yet, Cipo lead out Freddie.......to be continued no doubt........


:rolleyes:It's all (Astana, ASO, UCI...) quite embarrassing for the sport as a whole, but I still can't give up on it........it's a great sport to watch.....

You do realize that Rock Racing is purposely manipulating the media to get this stuff written about them? Of course they'll start. But they'll do anything for the press and publicity, including threatening to not start the race...
 
After listening to Michael Ball "talk the talk" , so to speak, about his team and pro racing in general, and seeing his team's colorful :rolleyes: uniforms, it seems he surely will go to great lengths to garner media exposure for his team, even if they can't do it through actual racing.

Although it was nice to see Freddie R. and Cipo near the front for at least one of the sprints.
