Armstrong drops fight against USADA drug charges, puts To...

I just noticed you already read my huge ass post from 1 month ago, where I stated why I think Armstrong and his competitors were doping. You don't agree with any of that?  (Oct 23, 2012 | post #145)

Do you believe one of Armstrong's competitors was clean? Or everyone? You have someone specific in mind or are you being general? It is of course possible to ride the TDF without doping but not get a shot on the title. At least till now. Are drivers clean now? I doubt it. If cycling times start dropping over the next years it would be a good sign.  (Oct 23, 2012 | post #144)

I I don't feel it as my responsibility to be nice in all of my posts. I did talk down to people that meet certain criteria. Are you one of them or why are you offended?  (Oct 23, 2012 | post #142)

Some guys here still don't get it. Every top cyclist cheated. Armstrong was just the most organized and successful with it. Note how the UCI will not declare replacement winners. Note how his ex competitors don't even complain about being cheated. Open your eyes for a second. Those that still think that Armstrong is innocent are as ignorant as those who thought Barry bonds and pro wrestlers don't take steroids. Those that now think that Armstrong was the only cheater and cycling has been cleared up are equally ignorant. On a side note: It is amazing that the same comments against Armstrong that receive good ratings now would have received horrendously bad ones 2 months ago. Did you guys really need an USADA investigation to figure out Armstrong was taking performance enhancing drugs. Seriously.  (Oct 22, 2012 | post #139)

Miguel Indurain: 'The image of cycling is being ruined'

Back then there were no reliable methods of testing EPO. One of his biggest rivals, bjarne riis, already admitted he was doping back then (without any pressure or evidence against him) Indurain commented that "he doesnt understand why Riis is confessing now after all these years" and didnt seem very bothered or annoyed (he did lose to Riis once after all. It is pretty ironic reading his late statements on the Armstrong case, thats all.  (Sep 24, 2012 | post #4)

On a second note its quite funny that someone like MIGUEL INDURAIN adds suggestions on how to support clean cycling.  (Sep 21, 2012 | post #2)

Miguel Indurain: 'The image of cycling is being ruined'

The image of cycling was already ruined. It just took a while for the news to get to the US because most Americans, until recently, always believed at least Armstrong is clean.  (Sep 21, 2012 | post #1)

There have been reports of retired cyclists exposing the sport already. They describe the situation as this: Everybody knows doping is common practice, however nobody talks openly about it. It is hinted at best. If one does not dope, he does technically have no chance of winning. Its not even so much about cycling speed but the increased regeneration time. If one gets caught, tough luck, nobody is going to back him up (or talk bad about him though) So, even if some cyclists go out and speak up, they could only speak for themselves and their own experiences with doping, they could talk about their teammates at best. So it is very difficult and time consuming to get everyone to confess, especially the successful ones which people care about. Every cyclist knew what he was getting into when he went pro. I think if usada did not use dirty methods nobody would ever get caught. They need to catch someone big to give the people the illusion the sport is clean (which I doubt it is). So its either play dirty or stay out of the game.  (Sep 7, 2012 | post #90)

They try. Funds are limited. They go for the athletes with the most fame in order to promote themselves. They pick big targets (and Armstrong is pretty big) so people don't start questioning why they exist. It is nearly impossible to 'catch everyone', considering they have to strike deals to get the information in the first place.  (Sep 6, 2012 | post #83)

If you read our whole conversation again you will realize you were the one that does not read my posts thoroughlyLOL Are you serious? Am I not the one that provided you the link to the doping history of the tour de france, the link which truthfulness you questioned? But anyway, since you do (now) agree doping is common practice, do you think Armstrong did not dope? Or do you think Armstrong 'might' have doped but you disagree with the methods used to pin him down?  (Sep 5, 2012 | post #71)

Wouldn't Armstrong have to participate in the hearing first? The USADA has around 10 witnesses and some old samples from 1999 (which they are technically not allowed to test though). Not exactly NADA.  (Sep 4, 2012 | post #65)

So first you question the information provided in the wiki, now you say it is not relevant at all? I am saying if someone would try to change it, it would be reverted to its original state, because it does reflect the majority opinion. If you ignore the information provided by media what other sources of information do you haveSo arent you saying doping is indeed common practice in cycling?  (Sep 4, 2012 | post #64)
