Bravery is all about timing

So Wiggins accuses Lance of being a 'lying bastard' over his claim to have been clean in 2009. Ahh yes.  Now that the big beast is at bay people are so much braver. If a few  senior pros had stuck their heads above the parapet earlier we might not be in the quite this depth of doodoo now. It is all a bit late.

But there is something that is not too late. Last time I looked the UCI was still run by a discredited leadership. They may or may not have conspired to cover up doping but they have lacked the strength to tackle the problem with the tenacity required. So, British Cycling and Team Sky go on record give a clear vote of no confidence and demand regime change.
