Okay, sure it’s murky, but where’s the conspiracy angle? I want blood! As good as Van den Driessche is on the U23 women’s cyclocross circuit, she’s not exactly a famous rider. If you wanted to believe that the UCI is more PR conscious with managing this doping scandal than the one that nearly sank the sport a decade ago, you could talk yourself into thinking that they went after a small fish to make an example of, in order to scare off more famous would-be offenders.
