Yep. It’s a mistake. I miss my dog. They’re out to get me. Fucking French labs… It never changes.
“It’s a mistake. I never doped, that’s not the way I see my profession,” Vinokourov told the French sports daily L’Equipe for Wednesday’s edition. “I think it’s a mistake in part due to my crash. I have spoken to the team doctors who had a hypothesis that there was an enormous amount of blood in my thighs, which could have led to my positive test.
Vinokourov claims to be the victim of a “provocation.”
“It’s been going on for months and today they’re managing to demolish me,” he said. “The setting up of our team made a lot of people jealous and now we’re paying the price. It’s a shame to leave the Tour this way, but I don’t want to waste time in proving my innocence.”
Even though his career is facing ruin, Vinokourov managed to joke about his situation.
“I heard that I made a transfusion with my father’s blood,” Vinokourov said. “That’s absurd, I can tell you that with his blood, I would have tested positive for vodka.”
Drunkcyclist may have to sponsor that man’s father next season. As if we could afford his bar tab.by
