I popped to the Guardian's coverage to see whether he'd fallen further back today, and guess who's tweet my "Pinot" search brought up?

Good article on Pinot:

Quote:
"Pinot’s body and mind faltering at a Grand Tour is becoming a regular occurrence and, as he admits himself, could be a sign that a yellow jersey is not supposed to be. "

Yes, someone posted about it in the TV thread a couple of weeks back. He doesn’t come caress as sorry for doping, no. On one hand he is still extremely rich, and famous, so maybe that is why.

I was surprised that he seemed to suggest he had no regrets when he had tge personal belief that using the growth hormone was what *gave* him testicular cancer, but I guess the cancer was part of the storyline that made him so famous, and maybe he saw the lurching trajectory as worth it in the long run. Hearing his son defend him and then have to admit his father was a fraud and that distress would have been enough to turn most people’s assuredness, though. Not his.

I would recommend the book The Secret Race which covers it. There's some hilarious moments in it. And ways of avoiding testing "the doorbell rang so I lay under the kitchen table until they went away".
