I think ‘Kimmage has issues’ would have sufficed really. He is an interesting guy, but I don’t think I would be the first to doubt if he manages to hold things in relative perspective anymore. Not alone did he manage to fall out with the cycling authorities, which is understandable, but he managed to fall out with a lot of the other anti doping campaigners in cycling too, which is not so understandable.
Personally I don’t think he has a brake on his emotions anymore, and they just override his good sense on a regular basis. I am not sure it is entirely fair on him that papers continue to use him.
It is a pity he has gone off the rails a bit, he could have been a force for good.
