Chris Horner has written a great blog post about why the decision was made to leave him off the Tour team this year. It's clear, it's honest and it's incredibly gracious. Not sure how the team will feel about Chris's honesty but I think that's what you get with Chris Horner, whether you like it or not. Obviously both Lance and Levi appreciate what he has to say as they both linked to the post on their Twitter feeds today.
He thanks Lance and Levi for much lobbying on his behalf and he asks us to not be too hard on Johan who was put in an impossible position and did what he had to do.
Fascinating to get a glimpse into the internal politics of a world-class cycling team and makes me love Chris Horner even more than I did before.
