I think he has a right to be bitter; his book exposed the widespread acceptance of doping in the pro peleton, and look at the way things went. He was one of the few people willing to stand up and accuse Lance Armstrong, one of the few journalists to point the finger, in public at no small risk to himself, and one of those who suggested that the blame should extend as far as the big boys at the UCI, old Hein and Uncle Pat.
He’s stuck to his guns, for years and has been shown to be correct.
I’d be bitter too.Posted 5 years ago
I used to dismiss him as bitter and twisted. But the thing is, I was wrong to do so, and he was right to make this his life’s work. Cycling and sport in general needs people like Kimmage, because it’s clear that the interests of those at the top have not been to fix key problems.
Have also put a bit into the defence fund: http://nyvelocity.com/content/features/2012/paul-kimmage-defense-fund. Just a small amount really but I think it’s the numbers that are as important as the sums involved.Posted 5 years ago
His defence fund is now over $20k. Nice to chip in a bit… Numbers count as much as cash i thinkPosted 5 years ago
