I nominate Lance Armstrong for UCI Pesident. I will twitter Tweet him to let him know he has been officially nominated here on VeloNews.
His Platform should be threefold at least:
1) LANCE HAS SAVED CYCLING. Lance has a proven track record of saving Cycling. Many metrics can show how cycling was saved and flourished during Lance's years.
2) LANCE BROKE OMERTA WHEN IT MATTERED. Lance broke Omerta WHILE he was riding. Lance broke Omerta WITHOUT being offered a Sweet Deal. Lance boke Omerta without being Bitter and Jealous. The Letters Lance sent to WADA and the UCI back in 2003 highlighting blood doping. What did WADA do? They brushed it off. Then came Puerto years later ooops. Lance would NOT let WADA brush stuff off again.
What did Greg do during PDM doping? Tell his lawyer? Yep. What did Greg do way back when EPO first came out? Riders dying. Raise the flag? Hardly. And then EPO steamrolled.
3) LANCE HAS LAZERLIKE FOCUS. UCI Presidency would be a snap for Lance. Skill Set proven on a Global Scale.
4) LANCE KNOWS DOPE TESTING. Lance probably knows more about Dope Testing than WADA and USADA and Greg and Ashenden and Floyd combined.
There are so many more aspects where Lance would Rule and Greg would drool. Need to have a Greg vs Lance debate.
