Some Eastern Suburbs cycling businesses are hosting a 'No Holds Barred' Q&A with Stuart O'Grady.

For... Get this. $1,000.00 per person.

It cost $200.00 to listen to Jens who, as far as we know, was clean throughout his entire career with many entertaining stories to boot. Not to mention the chance to win a years supply of Carmen bars (which I did).

What is the allure in paying $1,000.00 to listen to a drug cheat vs. whatever it might cost to listen to Marianne Vos (as an example), who is arguably one of the best cyclists of our generation.

Dismissing O'Grady as simply a drug cheat is entirely overly simplistic.

And there is an appetite out there to hear more about the underbelly of cycling. And I'm sure (just like Voigt) he's got an entertaining story or 2 to tell.

How many seats for the Jens show v O'Grady

O'Grady blocked me on Twitter when I doubted his "I didn't inhale" doping defence. I heard his book didn't sell too well ....

O'Grady was an absolute all time great of Ozzy cycling. I think the price is related to who is hosting it etc. I don't think you really want to know the truth about who has used drugs in cycling. I am a massive fan of Jens, his almost super human efforts on the bike have been unbelievable.. to watch. I would love to hear Jens, Robbie Mc Ewen, etc etc etc, they would all have amazing stories
