"Alleged?" not any more. Plenty of proof available that he doped, cheated, covered-up, etc.

And as if that weren't enough, he threatened, intimidated, blustered, and sued to protect his false reputation. He should have to pay back every judgement he won, pay additional money in compensation to those who lost the suits, and compensate those whose lives, careers, and reputations he soiled.

He is IMO a criminal, even if not found guilty of anything in court. A totally disgusting pig.

I told this forum five years ago that Lance cheated now you know why I came to this conclusion.
It is not humanly possible that Lance can achieve such performances w/o drugs. Several of us were ex pro cyclists and we know all too well.

Many who urged Lance to come clean and many of his accusers got their names smeared which was not right.

You sure as hell are not an ex pro cyclist as you show all too often that you have no understanding about most things in cycling and especially that of the illegal doping that's been affceting the sport of cycling for all too long.

Granted that everyone is entitled to their opinions, yet I always find it totally interesting when they'e so paranoid that they'll hide their location in comparison to the real cyclists and cycling fans who have been here in the cycling forums.

Also an interesting note that many of you only come long eough to spout off when the news goes up a level and as soon as it des down, all of you disappear.

Maybe I misunderstood, who are you talking about? What's your position on the Armstrong doping revelations?

Thanks.

I supported Lance Armstrong in several topix forums & threads, believing he was innocent, even despite numerous bicyclists testifying against him. But now, he is guilty & of more than personal usage of drugs.

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 to his leadership, he encouraged others to dope, if not outright, demanded that other teammates dope.

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

The wreckage to professional bicycling is worse than the bicycle accidents that sent riders off cliffs or into a barb-wire fence! 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.

I was referring to you and a few others.

All you really have to do is go back through the threads and read them for your self in gaining an understanding where my position has always been.

Innocent Until Proven Guilty!

In the Floyd Landis case, USADA wasn't able to do that, but Floyd Landis finally was able to accomplish that when he publically admited to doping.

USADA was able to do that for me in the Lance Armstrong case.

Actually it wasn't that long ago when other professional (his own teamates) cyclists actually testified to the USADA against Lance Armstrong. So, your statement above really isn't quite on track of the time sequence.

By your last statement can you actually name or identify a current cycling drug ring? Because there has been no actual proof or announcement of such a situation currently taking place within the sport of cycling.

Well, since he's been PROVEN guilty, you've been vindicated, I suppose. I'm not a cyclist and so don't post regularly to cycling threads. Doesn't prevent me from having an opinion or expressing it, however.

Actually in the reality of all of this, there is no vindication nor any reason for any vindication. I don't point accusing fingers at anyone without having any real proof.

Granted that there were many other people who all along had strong suspecions that Lance Armstrong was doping all long, but there was no real hard evidence supporting thoise theories and that's just what they were,'Theories."

I would point out to where there were only a handful of excellent pro cyclists who had achieved the number of "5" Le Tour de France wins, that for anyone to win '7' TDF wins and for those seven wins to have actually taken place in strict sequence would cause any normal person to possably come up with questionable concerns since most cyclists and cycling fans had by that time plenety of observed doping articles that left most with a bad taste in their mouths.

Seems you might have a memory problem when you go from one forum subject to this one P.

You let your slip show yesterday when you typed "Va" in your post and your title box also showed Fort Lee, Virginia.

Don't know why you're being so mean spirited in saying "None of your Business" as I was only curious as to where each of the posters live, which only provides all of ue with a geographical background.

You provided a nice description of yourself and your family along with your enjoying rebuilding old Raliegh bicycles.

I hope that you're not being scared off simply because of the current political melo dramatics there in Virginia and Washington, DC in comparison to here in Texas.

You don't need be self-righteous & condemning, if posters don't want to give their doorstep addresses. There are enough filthy racist pigs &/or threateners on toxic topix(which topix will not ban), that discretion of personal info is highly advantageous.

Stating what town or city anyone lives in really isn't providing anyone with their "Doorstep Address", so there really isn't any reason for anyone coming here acting melo dramtic and disengenious as I just find it enjoable to discussing cycling issues with people around the country along with around the world.

And if anyone had read any of the other forum topics here, they would have already taken notice that the "Professor" had avtually showed that he/she are from Fort Lee, Virginia.

As for your sencond part of your statement, that really made no sence at all considering that the "Professor' and I were not being toxic waht so ever.
