Taking it to the CAIS will at least it will bring a degree of clarity to issue because similar issues have been treated differently in different cases. I'm still hoping they will eventually 'get' hiim on the plasticiser when a test is finally approved.

New release of the very good, but very long (around 1 hour 40) Velo Club Don Logan podcast is out - worth having on if you can multi task (so probably rules out most of us on here )

He's a rising star this boy, still only 23, assured I think of a glorious track career.

But he has a comparitively svelte physique. Could he??

I haven't caught up on the last couple of stages of the tour of cataluyna yet, but old Bertie didn't look to fussed on the day that that the UCI/CAIS investigation was announced. He still has his smug face on. Git.

On another (related) topic, I got a copy of Overcoming of DVD the other day, it's basically the story of the 2004 TdF as seen through the eyes of Team CSC and Barnaby Riis. It's interesting, quite revealing (it was made before Riis 'fessed up about his EPO use and the indignation on his face when a TV commentator dares to suggest that his team might be dodgy beggars belief). Bobby Julich and Carlos Sastre both come accross really well, as does Basso, which is annoying as he then got caught not quite doping (he thought about it but still got banned - he says). Overall, worth the fiver on Amazon.

One more thing, The Flying Scotsman about Graeme Obree is on BBC1 tonight at 11.30. It's very good.

Only got round to watching this yesterday evening.

Don’t forget that Jason Kenny is already a track star, he was one of the trio that won gold in the team sprint at Beijing and got silver behind Hoy in the individual. What has changed since then is that Kenny’s acceleration has improved, the years are catching up with Hoy, and Grégory Baugé has come of age.

In terms of Kenny’s physique, I’d assume it is all about power to weight ratio, lung and heart capacity, and of course talent and training. Different builds could work equally well depending on the other factors. But the legs of Hoy and Baugé are enormous, no skinny jeans for them!

There were interesting parallels with the medallists in the 60 metres at the recent European Indoor Athletics Championships – the top three were Francis Obikwelu, Dwain Chambers, Christophe Lemaitre. Chambers is big and muscle-bound, Lemaitre tall and slim, and Obikwelu somewhere in between.

The book is very good, the film concentrates on the highest peaks and lowest troughs, but there are moments in the book that are truly odd. If I remember correctly after a championship in Holland he vanished and was found wandering around the streets in a daze, he also got involved in an insurance scam when his shop was failing.

Apparantly he's also just "come out" too.

An interesting character who could have been massive. His timing was all off though as Boardman was about at the same time. The UCI didn't like him becuase he wasn't a "name".

A proper cycling genius.

Looking forward to the next 'monument' on Sunday, The Tour of Flanders. It'll probably come down to a duel between Cancellara and Boonen, and maybe Pozatto and a few others will be there to throw the cat among the pigeons.

Good win for Nuyens, Cancellara just couldn't quite hold it - the oncoming Boonen forced him to go early.
