I just got a heads up text message from my man Fitty.
Zajicek. Suspended. For. Life.
The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has announced the life-time suspension of former Fly V Australia rider Phil Zajicek after he admitted to a second doping offense for purchasing erythropoietin (EPO), and a third doping offense for providing false testimony at an American Arbitration Association (AAA) panel hearing, as well as encouraging other witnesses to provide false testimony.

I’ve been putting in 10 and 11 hour days studying for the Bar exam. As such, I haven’t had time to share anything on the site, and I don’t see that trend changing much until the end of July.
But, for this, I had to find the time.
I know Zajicek. I’ve been calling him Z-boy on the site for years. Sad news. I feel bad for the guy, really I do. I’m not saying I condone his choices. But, I understand the motivation behind them.
If you read this, Z-boy, keep your head up. I still appreciate you pushing me (literally) over Pistol Hill.by
