What happened to Tiernan-Locke? The same excuse as Floyd....”I got pissed on the eve of the World Champs and was dehydrated” :lol: oh yeah....he’s British.

Or “my body is unique and secretes salbutamol instead of sweat when I excersise”. :lol:

Jan Ullrich is still in the popular media in Germany and reported now out of treatment again for substance abuse. Nice enough fellow but troubled.

Nice enough to cause harm to others on a seemingly regular basis. Chocking a woman until she passes out is not my definition of nice. Being arrested for breaking into your neighbour's home, threatening and assaulting them them is not nice. Persistently driving while under the influence of alcohol and cocaine is not nice. Surrounding yourself with drug dealers is not nice. Driving your car into bicycles are then fleeing the scene is also not my idea of nice.

This is one example of the carnage he caused, putting others into hospital:

Troubled - yes.

Needs help, yes (has persistently refused help for more than a decade - his first wife left him because he refused to get help).

Amazing bike rider (despite the doping) - yes, a phenomenal talent.

Nice - no.

Hopefully he has found rock bottom and finally gets himself sorted.
