    Default Alberto Salazar banned for 4 years

    Not too many people are surprised by the findings with the exception of Salazar and Dr. Brown, as Nikeís attorneys have lost this round. I am not surprised by the arrogance of Salazarís response which was posted on the Oregon Project website...just surprised that Nike allowed such a response to be posted. Have they forgotten about the once famous cyclist that they helped sponsor?

    Well, Saladbar's statement is factually correct. Its just you can use loopholes to avoid positive results, and still be in violation of the spirit of the rule. Not unlike old Team Sky in my opinion.

    Is he just another megalomaniac (no shortage these days) or is he actually bat-shit crazy? Just really weird.

    Feels like a group of people who think they are bigger than the sport. Let's not forget the threats--people who are like this like threats: John Capriotti, Nike Global Director of Athletics, Threatened To Kill Brooks Beasts Head Coach and Former Nike Employee Danny Mackey At 215 USAs According to Police Report - LetsRun.com

    4 years does not seem long enough.

    30 accompanying “pacemakers” and a lead pace car to break the 2-hour Marathon record...he used to run for Nike and now Ineos.

    Not surprised Ineos cycling was involved in a supporting role. This seems consistent with Brailsford's approach, e.g., fixated on optimal conditions to replicate laboratory-developed performance. I bet he'd love to manipulate the TdF this way. Not the kind of thing that inspires me, at all.
