As it appears dopign was widespread stripping titles seems pointless. Who do you elevate and woudl they be clean under the same degree of investigation? And what good does it do 10 years later to be victor, no headlines no endorsement deals..... Good to call it what it was and expose the problem but the sport has already moved on. So must we. Lance did cycling a lot of good bring a lot of USA fans on board. His denial of cheating after being caught though raises integrity issues and there may be better chariets to support cancer victims.

dave, agreed on all of it.

You would give titles from 1 doper to another.

On the charity thing its a personal choice who you give to as long as they give.

It appears that TDF have said this but there is Bronze and IOC appear unwilling to change 8 years rule so I cannot see UCI doing it.

Dick Pound adding pressure will only make UCI go against them with their already stressed relationship it doesn’t seem a wise thing to do if you want agreement. Time will tell on that though.

I still see 5 TDF retained and UCI will move on with outcry of disgust but that’s nothing new for them.
