Greg Lamond is plainly very right in demanding a total cleanout of cycling's governing body. Plainly this systematic cheating and drug taking on a major scale could have only been allowed by the UCI working in collusion to conceal this from the public.
Such was the mass scale of drug abuse that has easily been uncovered by mainly one investigator. UCI with all its drug test funding and power could have easily unmasked the massive scale of drug abuse at will but has never chosen to divulge such abuse.

There's been a lot of out cry against Pat Mquaid and his cronies there at the UCI.

Even the Dutch Cycling Federation stated that there needs to be an investigation into the UCI and it needs to be conducted by an independent agency.

But, the same thing needs to be done with US Cycling as well as there is a lot of corruption going on there.

Federal special agent Jeff Novitzky single highhandedly unmasked this mass corruption of drugs and cheating in Pro cycling. UCI the governing body in cycling with all its funding and drug testing detection abilities find near to nothing over this same time span. An acceptable conclusion is that over the last decade the environment to very easily cheat on drugs was clearly an accepted outcome for Pro Cyclists. UCI needs to be investigated by an independent authorized authority as plainly people with the cycling s governing body know far more than what has been divulged thus far regarding doping and Pro cyclists.

Actually it had been reported by several others years ago that Lance Armstrong and company had been doping, while the UCI kept looking in another direction.

Al of that related information is documented quite well all over the Internet and in almost all of the various cycling forums.

In real time, no one has ever explained as to where the donation ended up at, that Lance Armstrong made to the UCI!

It appears everything shall be sorted out now and cleared up with an intensive investigation by none other than UCI.

I wonder how critical UCI shall be of UCI!!!

Drug test Anna vanderbreggen for drug use. Out of all the Olympians only 145 were even tested by Brazilians. Give me a Break. Something is going on here. And for vanderbreggen and the other two to catch up like that. Test them all.
