The UCI‘s denouncement of Lance Armstrong vindicates Paul Kimmage and David Walsh.
Now that almost…
…everyone is willing to agree that L.A. is not just a great rider but was also a master of ‘scientific preparation’, we might expect Walsh and Kimmage’s dogged persistence – in the face of bullying and lawsuits – to be praised.
The UCI are, however, persisting with a case for defamation against Kimmage. Their action is against Paul Kimmage in person which can only be interpreted as an attempt to silence him. When Armstrong went after David Walsh he at least had the dignity to sue his mighty publisher.
This gives us all a chance to participate in the clean-up operation from our armchairs.
