Actually, I think it is one of the best things to happen to cycling. A cheat is actually confessing to his dirty deeds. I understand the pressures to perform and all that. It still does not make cheating right. My respect for Basso has actually increased because of his admission. Removing the doubt of allegations whether guilty or innocent is better than allowing speculation to continue.
Paul Tay - Clear conscience? There are some people in the world who do like to have one - even among cyclists. It could be he is also looking to avoid the possible financial ruin that Floyd Landis is looking at.
