And take those bloody long black socks with you  >:(

Nah mate, you're wrong. Black socks are cool. In fact, anything other than white socks are cool. (I wear anything other than white socks to annoy the cycle fashion nazis  :demon:)

I often wear black socks whilst cycling. But the only socks I ever wear are the ones that don't go above the ankle, so you can never see them anyway. Visible socks just don't look cool. In point of fact, they look about as cool as socks and sandals....
Those wonderful norks are never far from my thoughts, oh yeah!

Oh Jesus!  Now you've really gone and stirred it up.

I'm going to lock myself away in the bunker for a few days (with the rest of us Gilet-wearing types)

It doesn't matter what socks you wear in the winter coz no-one can see them unless you're one of those oddballs who wears SPanDals all year rounds.  Summer is a different matter altogether.

You're wearing girls socks. I hope you asked permission.

If you can see the colour of my socks then you are wheelsucking so have no right to comment.

I used to admire him, his skill, his dedication.
That was before I read several books including Willy Voet's and others of the same genre.
And of course all those doping scandals.

Good bye.

Interesting how they say they'll hand them over, but they seem determined to delay the process as much as they can!

Most of that article seems to be talking about cooperation with the UCI on doping controls.

How long before we see Lance on Oprah?

Back to socks... white is just so wrong, and what I find so amusing, is that the white sock wearing havit was allegedly started by a vain, preening French pro who donned them to complement his tanned legs.

If Lance is clean it will drag on forever as there are lots of people who will never believe it and keep dragging it up again no matter how many tests come out negative.
If he is dirty and doesn't admit it same thing unless someone gets some non circumstantial evidence.
The only way it will ever be put to bed is if he is dirty and admits it.

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.
