The writer concentrates on Lance Armstrong's own drug use. As bad as that is, it is far worse.

I supported Lance Armstrong in several topix forums & threads, believing he was innocent, even despite numerous bicyclists testifying against him.

The sins of Lance Armstrong goes beyond his personal involvement with drugs, which is reprehensible.
Professional bicycling is a team event in the greatest definition of the concept. Lance constructed & led several teams of competitors. Testimony from many competitors named Mr. Armstrong as a doper..... even bicyclers on his own team & of his own country. Beyond that, & due tmust haveo his leadership, he encouraged others to dope, if not outright, demanded that other teammates dope.

Yes, by definition, it appears that Mr. Armstrong has been a drug dealer or as near to a drug dealer as you can get.

The wreckage to professional bicycling is worse than bicycle accidents that sent competitors over cliffs & riders into barb-wire fences! Such an honorable sport, showing true courage by partakers, is cut to pieces by drugs, those that use drugs & now those that run drug rings behind the scenes.
