Black Fish in the media

2012 was a difficult year for cycling.

Fortunately, a new year brings with it the promise of renewal. Already, the sweet scent of hope is beginning to replace the stench of scandal that has plagued the cycling fan's metaphorical nostrils for so long.

And as the excitement builds for the first UCI World Tour event of 2013, the world cycling body has sought out the mighty Black Fish Cycling squad to help promote clean cycling. Blessed by record-low haematocrits, mid-range VO2max and unimpressive power output graphs, the Black Fish represent the future of the UCI's push for a drug-free peloton. Indeed, until the time comes that the laboratory in Lausanne develops a test for the potent combination of Barossa shiraz and paracetamol, Black Fish fans need never fear a doping scandal.

It is no surprise, then, that the UCI, WADA and the TDU organizers sought out the Black Fish for a media blitz in the lead-up to this magnificent event, beginning with the renowned Eastern Courier. The article is reproduced in full below, or may be viewed online here.

It is believed that the next feature article, rumoured to be in the New York Times, will require BF QOM Finola Dwyer to use the original spelling of her name rather than the elaborate nom de Courier that she adopted for this feature.

There has been no comment yet from the Armstrong camp, although sources close to the disgraced former champion suggest that he is devastated to have lost the support of the Black Fish.
