Will Routley (Pro Cyclist)
Will Routley is riding with Accent Jobs Wanty (Belgium Pro-Continental team) this season after the demise of Spidertech in 2012 following a hugely successful European campaign. Routley has been making headlines with his ‘no messing’ comments that riders actually do have a choice when it comes to doping. He wrote in the Vancouver Sun. “When I hear dopers say things like: I crossed the line, I am disgusted. As far as I’m concerned, ‘crossing the line’ is when you swear in public. When you defraud a nation, steal from sponsors, and your fellow racing compatriots and then lie to the world about it, you didn’t ‘cross a line,’ you are a criminal.” Read more here.
