The hits just keep coming.
Subject: Et tu DiLuca
You read the latest on Cycling News? DiLuca recorded on tape talking w/ a
doctor about taking EPO prior to Milano-San Remo… shit just keeps sliding
Yeah, I saw that. I’d like to say I’m surprised…
But I’m not.
In a recorded conversation from March 3, 2004, five days before Milano-Sanremo, Santuccione expressed the need to inject Erythropoietin immediately since, at the time, the drug was only detectable for a few days. “You have to pass by. You have to hurry because you need to do it today,” said the doctor. Di Luca responded that he would come by with Alessandro Spezialetti at 19.00.
And, gee, the Giro winner gets caught up in a drug scandal? I’ve never heard of such a thing. Di Luca, Basso, Garzelli, Gotti, Pantani, Tonkov, Rominger, Berzin… Spotless. All of ‘em.
In other news, it’s 4:30 and I just cracked my first beer. Tecate, in a can, ice cold. Someone (not me) taught my daughter how to “cheers”. Not so much the talking bit, just the clinking things together part. And she just rocked a dent in my can with her sippy cup.
Reminds me of when me and the gnome used to smash each others beer cans with impunity. What? Nothing.by
