Lance didnt get caught, that is all. It is BS to say that he rode above doping... He probably had the best medical help money could buy.
He also probably has some exemption to use testosterone at will as a result of his cancer problems.

We don't know if Lance Armstong is taking medication or not BUT no one can win 7 TDF on medication alone and still be in the shape he is in
No doubt about it, he is the greatest TDF rider of modern times

With maturity and/or advanced (beyond 4th grade in the USA or university degree in Canada) mental awarenss comes intellect. Now either you under-educated, or you are mentally deficient, or you are Canadian. What is your excuse?

What another snappy comeback. The vast majority of the peloton doped during his era (just like Mark McGuire's baseball doping era).

It is just hilarious that "adults" such as yourself keep clinging to the notion that he is as pure as the driven snow.

He was great, but he was a great doped cyclist in an era of doped cyclists.

I cannot understand why Will is now so anti Lance whereas he previously wanted to lick his arse.
