Hopefully the new year will see an improvement. Will be interesting to see what happens and takes place.

Yet, seems that the British are getting more criticism again in regards to doping.

Will be interesting to see what Bradley Wiggins does come this next TDF! Will the Boss make him keep his word or will the Boss side with him.

Looking like the Soap Opera Circus is still in place!

Lance is a fine athletic specimen . If he hadnt doped a bunch of losers would have beat him. I what the very best to win the tour. They didnt take these drugs to get high like some communist hippes. they took drugs to perform better. how can that be wrong.

Lance was a greater person than he was a drug cheat let it go. He did more for cycling and charity than all the cyclists in the history of cycling put together. I knew he was a drug cheat because I was a pro cyclist for fifteen years and knew Lance but many others were doping also why singled him out.

Because he cheated !!, its like cheating at any sport, you get caught then you go down. Just accept it and live with it, i have never heard so much nonsense spouted in an attempt to defend him or make him look better than the cheat he is.
"you should believe in these athletes, and you should believe in these people...And there are no secrets - this is a hard sporting event and hard work wins it." oh and cheating to lance, don't forget about the cheating. fraud.

Sounds more like you're saying that it was okay for Lance Armstrong to do what he did considering that we'e already hattained an ample amount of evidence and medical prove that EPO had actually seriously affected and even killed a several other cyclists.

I don't quite believe that when his cildren get old enough to really understand all the implications here, that they would aggree with you. But, it always amazes me at the mind sets that many people provide when it hasn't happened to them or anyone in their families.

As for other cyclists being crucified, that's exactly what has happened to most of the other cyclists who were caught doping and weren't able to buy their way out of it.

I've been a fan of Lance Armstrong just as you have, but I'm not in deniel and I certainly don't have any respect for a cheater or doper in any sport.

Problem in today's main stream, society it has become the way of life for many in cheating simply as the ethics of hard work doesn't seem to be the priority for many today.

The State of Texas just busted and tore apart one of our school district administrations here in El Paso because there was a rampert case of cheating going on and being covered.

El Paso do not be a hypocrite, you defended Lance to the very end. While most of us already knew he was a cheat, especially us that have been in the pro circuit , those Lance performances are impossible w/o drugs. He was taking it but so were 96% of others. You think Basso, Nimbale, Alberto, Schlecks, Menchov et al are totally clean? No they are not.

I gave Lance Armstrong the very same support and benefit of doubt as I did for Floyd Landis during his case.

I like both men, but not for their doping as that only kept cycling from moving forward.

That has nothing to do with being a hyocrite and two or more wrongs have never made a right.

Doping just because everyone else is doing has never been logical or realistic.

I see ur point but when we former cyclists tell u that he cheated you did not believe us. Trust me those performances are beyond human, not possible by ordinary means, why do you think that the pro circuit never let this mess go. But so many cheated it has to stop somewhere.

With the combination of the Floyd Landis and Lance Armstrong cases, I'm seeing where many other cyclists have found the courage in coming out and publically admiting to theor own doping.

That same process has also encouraged various cycling organizations, teams and riders in coming together in demanding that Pat McQauid and comapny resign from the UCI along with their demends that UCI clean itself up.

Now that all of you out there who claimed to know who was doping have already now refocused your gun sights over to Team GB and Team Sky from the United Kingdom.

Granted that most of you have pointed out some reasonable points that provide questionable concerns, however it still doesn't prove anything more then possible suspecision.

You sound more like an old women's sewing circle who get together so, that you can share and spread the local gossip, while finding something to fill in the post cycling season till the spring races begin again.

Cyclingfan, can you really provide any proove that the pro circut never let this mess go? I'll be happy to read your proof here as I hope that you have sources to print here.

Throughtout my reading of the various cycling forums and cycling articles, I haven't really seen any indication from anyone in the pro circuit or professional cycling standing up and taking a stance agains doping with the exception of a handful of cyclists or a bunch of cycling fans.

Just how many emails and letters of corrispondence did you personally send to WADA, UCI, USADA, US Cycling, etc, etc in order for fighting illegal drugs in sports along with the sport of cycling. I ask that because I have sent them plenty because as a clinician I have always had serious concerns about our young people getting onto another system of drug considering that no one throughout the world has won the "War on Drug" so far.

Greg Lemond pointed this out more than 12 years ago and they finally over this many years nabbed Lance.
There is a preponderance of evidence on his doping by many witnesses who were highly credible.

Just as I figured.

"NO Sources" to provide for validating this individual's accusations..

Cycling forums full of suspecions is not a valid supply of "Evidence'!

Atypical personality!

Well Turtle, I'm not trying to chop anyone down as I do understand that there were many people with the feelings that everything wasn't real clear as to who was and who wasn't doping back 12 to 15 years ago.

But, I certainly have no memory of any of them pro cycling teams nor the cyclists themselves ever making aby statements about pointing out any suspected riders back then and even Greg Lemond was carefull before he finally came out pointing a fnger at Lance Armstrong or anyother rider(s).

Cheers
