A very sad end! Was Lance just a victim of quack docters, as others were?

Is this a restart for the tdf and pro cycling or its demise???

why do you say that ? do you think only bike races where the competitors dope is interesting?
if that is so it is a lame conclusion to make.
Or is it just you do not have l the cheater arm to watch.
by all accounts this last tdf was the cleanest in a long time, it still seemed as good to me

There are already many who would disagree about this tour being clean because many of them are alreday questioning concerns about Team Sky.

turtle the cheating focus has moved from doping to genetic stimulation and the presence of plasters on their team when UCI has a no needles policy does not help avoid suspicion of doping or enhancement for recovery.

So easy for many to jump on the "Judgement" band wagon and make all kind of noise, yet really never take the time in trying to figure out a solution in resolving the doping issues at hand in cycling.
