That raelly would be the worst thing to happen to cycling - if Jens had been doping.
Just read that. I really really want to read that at face value. Forty flippin one, mighty indeed.
I love Jens, "Shut up legs". I've taught my 2 1/2 year old daughter to say that when she complains of tired legs when we're out walking.
I believe him.
With "shut up legs" and "come on arms do your stuff" most things are covered !
Now, that position would be fine with me if he wasnt simultaneously hanging out at Mellow Johnnys in Austin, Texas.
To many it looked as though he was taking Lances side in this, not an especially credible place to put yourself some would say.
Please, please, please, please let this be the truth. I am a believer, but if it transpires that Jens doped it will break my heart more than any of the revelations we have had so far.
Being pedantic, a couple of slightly contradictory quotes in the piece.
'Again, I do believe cycling has become better. I don’t see any traces of team-organized doping or doping networks anymore.'
'some people want to say, “Jens, how could you not know?” It’s true that I sometimes suspected some riders of doping. However—and this is important—I never saw anything firsthand.'
