To sue or not to sue, that is no question

September 5, 2014

We all laugh about it, the rider who threatens legal action just to try to convince us they really didn’t do what some magazine, newspaper or website alleges. And of course, nothing ever happens. But I thought it would be nice to have a list, because of course the reverse is also true. If no legal action is ever taken, maybe the story was correct.

I can’t find such a list anywhere, so I thought I’d make a modest start. Please help me by adding some in the comments section!

RIDER
Bettini
Cavendish
Cipollini
Contador
Di Gregorio
Lefevere

VERSUS
