    I'll be honest im suspicous about anything anti russia at the moment. Any day now they'll be telling us Russia is responsible for global warming, AIDs, cancer and Putin wants to cancel Xmas.

    One day the bear is going to bite back and we'll regret all the prodding it with a stick.

    While I've no doubt that there is a ped problem in Kenya, I'd be of the opinion that it's not state run.. could well be wrong

    That was not state sponsored,

    However UKA/UK Sports/GB Cycling have been implicated in that and given they cleared a review of Salazar it could amount to state aided, though I can't imagine to many will be calling for the same :rolleyes:

    No it was corporate sponsored and yet this corporation has bigger reach and potentially more damaging impact
