GASP....EEEK....this is just not good....
 
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.
 
I don't understand what he has to gain by fessin' up. Help me out, people.
 
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.
 
Right. I can understand the cutting yer losses part. But, would you give up seven TdF's for a clear conscience?
 
He didn't admit to doping...he admitted to trying to dope. He claims his Giro win was clean, and he wanted to dope for the Tour.

Umm, yeah, ok.

He wants a lighter sentence, so why not confess to a lighter crime?
 
yeah, "attempted" doping. Sheesh. If the guy can win a world class bike race by nine minutes clean, why would he even consider banking blood for a future race?
 
In case he crashes and needs blood transfusion.
 
"Attempted doping" -- my respectometer just took a dive.
