Petition for Floyd
Filed under: general
Posted by: The Cyclofiend @ 8:04 am

I’ve sort of conciously stayed off this topic as it both
depresses and angers me. Some folks use it to tee off against elite
athletes in general and cyclists in particular, while others use it to
argue another chapter in why various countries seem to “hate” us.

If you’ve followed the WADA and Dick Pound actions with any degree of
regularity for the past couple years, the most charitable description
you can arrive at is that there’s a big job to be done and there have
been some reasonably clumsy statements made, positions taken and
sanctions levied. 

There’s a petition here (courtesy of Carlton Reid from bikebiz)
which has some of the recent specifics in the Landis affair.  Not
sure if it will have an effect, but it allows you to “say” something
about the mess.  There’s a comments field in addition to the
regular sign-on.  At this writing, there were over 2100 signatures
attached.
