Many of us experienced and ex pro cyclist knew all along. In one TDF he made up more than 35 minutes to win it. It is humanly impossible. He has won 22 stages and in one stage he beat the field by over 19 minutes, that's humanly impossible. Carlos Sastre in 2008 won a stage by 18 minutes now that's pretty suspicious also. You see in an elite even field field the times are supposed to be pretty close like this year.

There's no proof that Lance Armstrong used performance enhancing drugs. It's likely every top cyclist uses p.e.d.'s though. I'm guessing you have to use them to remain competitive.There's a limit on how much epo they're allowed to have in their blood and it's alot higher than any normal person would have. There's also other things that there's no way to test for like growth hormone. Why wouldn't Lance use them and why single him out and expect him to admit it? I don't care about Lance or competive cycling but I think alot of the people who condemn him are hypocrites and/or idiots.
