Pereiro's True Colors

Let's see... I know there was something about Oscar Pereiro that bugged me, but I can't seem to put my finger on it.

In a recent interview with Cyclingnews, Pereiro said: "It is not the same - it doesn't have the same flavour," referring to the possibility of being named Tour winner before the result of Landis' B sample was known. However, at a press conference in Vigo, Spain, today, he said: "Right now I feel like the winner of the Tour de France. It's a victory for the whole team."

OK, I remember now. Way to stick to the high road Oscar. Give him another couple weeks and he won't even be able to recall being gifted 30 minutes. Pitiful.
