So Operation Open Mouth has folded it’s tent and slunk away. All charges against all riders have been dropped by the Spanish Federation. Much Ado About Nothing, I guess. With all the charges we saw in the media frenzy, they couldn’t prove one case? Nada? However, I hear, they are still going after the former Liberty Würth director, Manolo Sáiz, Vicente Belda, Comunidad Valenciana's Ignacio Labarta and Dr. Eufemiano Fuentes. But, you know that Manolo didn’t even lose his Pro Tour license....

Ivan Basso and Jan Ulrich ought to sue the asses of all agencies and officials involved in Operacion Puerto, but I suppose they have some kind of government immunity. Being throw out of riding the Tour without any charges against them was bad enough, but this is an appalling injustice and a career-destroying Spanish farce.

While I’m on my soapbox, what a disgusting, disgraceful, arrogant, asinine, mean, malevolent, tacky, trashy and unprofessional incident at the Tour de France 2007 presentation. Of course, you’ve heard that the usual Tour retrospective, the eight-minute film presentation, ended with the image of Floyd Landis on the podium cracking like a mirror, with the sound of shattered glass. It seems to me that what really was shattered there was justice, due process and fair play.

The ASO has made it very clear that they, along with their cronies at Le Creep, the Chatenay-Malabry cesspool and WADA have no intention of ever allowing Floyd to be found innocent of their inept, erroneous charges. It is hard to believe that the ASO went to that length to try to humiliate Floyd, however, they certainly showed their true colors to the world. And those colors look like cesspool brown to me....
