    Maybe instead of winning seven he should have stopped at 3?

    Lance isn’t the only one. Why aren’t there asterisks besides the records of Barry Bonds?

    Bicycling in particular would have a hard time finding any champion who isn’t juiced. But the bigger problem is the sick “Win at all costs” attitude that Radish alluded to – an attitude that distorts the purpose of sport in general and rubs off onto the rest of life – so that we see business/politics/religion etc as a game that must be won. Preferably by utterly destroying the other guy.

    Before slamming Lance Armstrong, people should ask themselves why it took 8 years for a sample that repeatedly tested negative to test positive. Then they should ask why the same test tested negative to the samples from before and after it was taken. Then they should ask themselves how much France paid the USADA to doctor the sample.

    The dopers are always trying to stay ahead of tests by using drugs and techniques that tests can’t yet detect.

    When did sports commissions start saving testing samples in cold storage while testing methods improved?
    The Sword of Damocles hovers over the head of every athlete with a dirty sample waiting for the right test.

    I am shocked that Armstrong would cheat like that and then lie about it for all these years.

    That takes a lot of Ball.

    Since quite a while. Just because its not mentioned doesn´t mean it doesn´t happen. Especially if there is strong enough doubt wether the test was actually false.

    Everybody in cycling have been shooting up.Look up Richard Virenque (french winner, busted and discrowned). Look up Marco Pantani (italian winner, busted and discrowned, later OD’ed). It was just recently that ICU decided that maybe they should do something about it. And it worked to an extent. The EPO usage was reduced. Armstrong just seemingly didn’t get the memo.

    What’s funny is they won’t award anyone those titles. 20 of the 21 who placed those years were either doping themselves, or connected to doping.

    Hey, at least Lance was the best of the dopers!

    I agree with zoidknight. Come on, who did Lance hire to do his doping, Professor Moriarty? The guy who made the super-soldier formula for Captain America? Who was it that was able to defeat the finest forensic chemical labs on earth year after year? Find them and give them a Nobel prize in Chemistry, if you can. This is merely France having a hissy fit over an American winning all those Tours. I’d LOVE to see the evidence come out in discovery in a trial. NOT ONE SHRED OF PHYSICAL EVIDENCE. And I’m not even a Lance Armstrong fan and I could care less about the sport of cycling. I just hate seeing someone railroaded. Cripes, when he was on the Tours, the French secret service broke into his rooms all the time looking for things and found ZILCH.

    “I agree with zoidknight.”
    .
    And you’re wrong too. It wasn’t an old sample and it wasn’t the French authorities.
    From the Huffington Post: (Just the first source I came up with.)
    “Lance Armstrong said he wanted to see the names of his accusers. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency gave him 26, including 11 former teammates.”

    I don’t know, and frankly don’t care, whether Armstrong cheated or not. But I do wonder 1)why it took YEARS for this to come out, 2) how tests can test negative and then 8 years later test positive, and 3) if the guys who finished only seconds behind him were also doping. These finding have more holes than a Swiss cheese.

    I like cheese.
