The shoe drops: Verbruggen admits UCI tipped off riders

This is the real story, or at least the tip of the iceberg. And we do have a debt to Lance, if the thought of what he might yet say prompted this disclosure (or if he was trying to yank Hein by the short and curlies, and Hein decided that the faster route would be less painful.) it's been alleged damn near forever. It's hard to see how it could NOT have happened, given the sheer volume of testing. We can argue whether it saved lives (possibly) saved face (certainly) reduced the intensity--but not the pervasiveness--of doping (perhaps) or mostly preserved omerta (that, too).
