Paul Kimmage Defense Fund
The UCI are taking Paul Kimmage to court for writing that cycling’s international governing body covered up a doping positive for Lance Armstrong (story on Velonation here). The same accusation is leveled by Tyler Hamilton and Daniel Coyle in The Secret Race, and will likely be further corroborated when USADA present their case against Armstrong to the public. As David Walsh and Charles Pelkey in his piece for RKP have pointed out, the UCI are vindictively suing only Kimmage and not the publications in which those accusations appeared (that includes The Sunday Times and NYVelocity.com). We’ve set up a ChipIn for Kimmage’s defense fund below.
