Lance is just one of the many professional bicycle riders who lied and took enhancing measurements.
His victories should be seen in the light of a majority of riders in the TdF being on drugs of one kind or another and, therefore, he was the best performer of that culture.
Had drugs not been taken by the peloton, the outcome would probably have been similar.
Just take a look at those Lance rode against in the TdF's and you'll see their performances were pretty close to lance's, which can only mean one thing..........
So, please, give me a break with all the diatribe and accusations against Lance and have a close look at your politicians, for starters !!!!

It is only cheating if you get caught. So if you see a Williams sister's balls slip out they are busted.

Chris in England is reading the Secrete Race by Tyler Hamilton.

My daughter bought it for me for Fathers Day and I just finished it.

I was a big fan of Lance Armstrong.

The Secrete Race is well written by Tyler Hamilton and Daniel Coyle in telling everything that took place behind closed doors and it really helps one see who Lance Armstrong really is.

Just a self centered and selfish little Git. He would have sold his mother for the right price.

If you haven't read this book, then you need to.

Gus is to scared to read this book!

Cheers To All

Watched the start of the TDF and seen that Bradley Wiggins chose not to race the TDF this year.

I'm surprised that the defending champion doesn't have the professionalism to show up at the TDF this year along with keeping his word that he would support his Team Sky team mate, Chris Froome in winning the TDF this year.

Seems to me that Bradley Wiggins is just another Lance Armstrong in disguise.

You are as ignorant as your comments. Do you think getting dress in the locker room for years no one would have reported or taken a pic with all the technology. Perverted minds.

So, Bradley Wiggins is claiming a knee injury now.

And now he's no longer in love with the TDF.

I see that some can come and critersize me, but have no courage to discuss the TDF here.

Cheers
