I have a solution. End the tour. That's right, end it. Only way to insure no one dopes.

If he is stripped from the ICU, concerning the tour de France 2003 after Lance Armstrong we've got: 2nd Jan Ullrich, 3rd Alexandre Vinokourov, 4th Tyler Hamilton, all of them failed drug tests that leaves us with 5th Haimar Zubeldia as the winner !!!, just ridiculous.

Only dead fishes follow the stream. "Only when the last tree has died, the last river has been poisoned, and the last fish has been caught, we will realize that we can't eat money."
Lance is relying on the fact that a sizable number of Americans don't care if you cheat, so long as you win.
The dude stole seven yellow shirts from the French in their favorite damn race. What a hero.
Looks like Lance is taking his ball and going home.
That being said, the testing always lags behind the doping - for years, EPO could not be detected, and was widely abused. I'm sure there are PEDs out there which aren't detectable in any test.
The USADA needs to release all it's information/evidence related to this case.
As already discussed in here, Lance didn't make many friends, so I can't tell who's telling the truth and who's not. But all I can do is go by the facts which say he never tested positive.
Kind of conflicted.
Yeah, I've suspected that he was cheating, for some time. Simply because he won that many races, for so long. And, to do all that after cancer? Certainly makes me wonder.
OTOH, I also have to feel for a guy who submitted every sample they demanded, was tested by the best technology available at the time, submitted to probably thousands of forensic tests, and passed all of them.
And one where, even when people go back to decades-old samples, and run new tests, he still comes up clean?
Yeah, I see a whole lot of really guilty people, pulling the "I'm not really guilty, I'm just taking this plea bargain because it's cheap" claim. But in Lance's case? Given how long people have been after him?
In his case, I can at least admit that it's possible.
I don't know whether he was cheating or not. (And I really love the people in the thread who seem to be certain that they do know.)
