What in the by a world does this phrase mean, "by a former teammate and confidant, desperate fool at the end of his pitiful rope". Here's some advice; if you want to be considered a decent writer then learn the basic rudiments of grammer.

Pro cycling is a joke, populated by cheats and liars. It runs under a mafia-like omerta. Big surprise they circle the wagons.

Armstrong is a fraud. For years, he worked with the notorious doping doctor Ferrari. Most of his ex-teammates have been caught doping. Literally all of his top competition has been caught or exposed as dopers, yet he someone beat them again and again.

Cut off your stupid yellow wristbands and find a real hero to worship.

Armstrong should have faded away gracefully. He is an arrogant fool and deserves the a--kicking he is getting. Sure FL is a bonehead, but if it walks like a Lance, and quacks like a Lance, it's a Lance!

Corporate sponsorship and pressure to win has created the buying and selling of championships, victories, and souls. I wonder what would come out if the "CROW" would sing?

Pro-cycling is a cesspool of dope and dopers. Seven TDF's, REALLY! I mean, what are the odds?

What a joke.

"Lance is obviously a guy who makes a huge impression on the sport," said Andrew Messick, president of AEG Sports, which operates the Tour of California. "He's a person who commands attention one way or the other. That being said, we have many of the best cyclists in the world at this event. For people who care about cycling, they're interested.

Got to love Messick. "one way or the other"

Why is 'this' a top story? A headline such as this should be top billing for a West Hollywood publication, shouldn't it?

Floyd Landis is not Tour de France Champion. He was deprived from the title because of use of forbidden substances. He is now under a warrant for arrest from a French judge for entering and tempering with the test lab's computer system .He has used millions of dollars to try to reverse his demise but now thinks it is better like other cycling champion have done it to speak up. Dope and medical tricks of multiple blood transfusions are a hidden face of this sport since decades.That some can still hide it is a sign of money or commercial power but not sport .

Armstrong is a comeplete con and i'm going to love seeing him go down in flames. This idiot has lied for years pretending to be some pin up boy for cancer. This has been the front protecting his guilty ass. While a lot has been done through his foundation it is tainted with deceit. SIck!!!

What are they going to say? They are ALL on something to make themselves have a chance to win and they all lie about it, just like every other sport. Tiger Woods uses too. Lance is full of it. To believe him makes you pretty stupid.
However, without any help they train harder then most of us could and are still the best in any sport. They dont need it to beat us, they need it to beat each other and really anyone of us would and have taken something to help us do better at something so its not like these people are criminals.

From, In the know. Many pro-cyclists cheat but, not all. Landis and Armstrong are the tip of the iceberg. Greed/Fame overcomes ethics/sportsmanship. For them the end justifies the means,dope is OK. They are not the only ones, cheats are international. It is just sad that cycling has been put into the same category as the NFL, where doping is the norm and expected.
