The news media or someone powerful must not like him because they constantly say he was doping but when others have done it they say they were taking steroids.A word can make or break someone.What does a man who simply rode a bike meant to the masses that they are so concerned other than media hype and hysteria.

Because he was a cheat. You seem happy to lower your standards in order to have a bike hero to idolize. Don't cry I'm sure Lance will live better than most for the rest of his days.

Lance made a ton of money by lying, cheating and bullying others. Now he's getting what he deserves. He treated people like s**t. It's payback time!

I want to hear what he has to say.

If he never got caught after 500 tests, then I want to hear how he got away with it. If he was cheating the whole time, then I am willing to bet that most of his competitors were cheating also.

The big story here should be how could the sport's testing system allow this to go on for so many years? Was the system corrupt or did they just have no clue what they were doing?

he could have been getting transfusions of packed red cells, thats not "dope" but is considered to be "doping". Gives the athlete an unfair advantage because of extra energy and blah blah blah, in his case though it could also have been perfectly legal. With all of his cancer treatments who knows what his bodies ability to make red cells was. If his were low and they gave him enough to bring it to the "normal" range that shouldn't be considered doping in my opinion. But...we'll see I guess. I wonder if thats what they find if they'll give him back his 7 wins. Doubtful.

Thats it Hank, they used a very elaborite "doping scheme" of transfusions to mask the drugs! What should have been done is random testing and more frequent!

dont they already get tested each day before the start of the tour? It was my understanding they were, however I could be wrong. What is it you expect? To have a mandatory cup full during the race? Anyway, how else would you explain his passing EVERY test ever given if not with the transfusions of red blood cells? I'm not sure you can get that info in a U/A.

The winner of each days stage is tested at the end of the day. I know that for sure.

The second and third place finishers each day may also be tested along with the overall race leader? Plus some random testing.

Knowing when you tested is a great help to anybody on PHD'S enable the person to mask it ahead of time and the transfusions were a great way to do it with no masking agents detected in the blood...

Personally, I don't care a bit about doping . . .but lying under oath is called perjury and that is a crime.
