Basso: the Next Millar?

Lifted from VN, who lifted an excerpt from an Italian mag... Ivan Basso says his suspension was "the best thing that could have happened to him" and he's ready to turn his life around. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt, because riders like David Millar who win dirty, get caught, pay the price, and come back to try again by riding clean are important examples to the sport. The one difference: Millar confessed and gave up his winnings. Basso hasn't paid the full price.
