Hmmmm....Lances's blood count goes UP during the '09 TdF as opposed to the expected decrease seen with prolonged stress
Blood tubing is found in the Astana's team facilities last year.
We won't go into Dr. Galea's recent arrest for smuggling HGH and actovegin into the US and his close ties to the US Postal Team.
We won't go into a cancer survivor actually performing better following chemotherapy.
I will admit that it's hard to compare Lance's victories with true heroes of cycling because they raced in the European tour and Lance was a "specialist". You know, people like Eddie Merykx, Bernard Hinault, Miguel Indurain, Greg LeMond....
Barry Bonds hasn't tested positve for "PED's" either....
Lance is an attention getter. He's good for the TdF and the organizers figured that out last year. I'm sure the glorification of a cheater will continue this summer.
Fortunately, my fav rider, admittedly very stupid, is back. I hope Tom Boonen does well in the race for the green jersey this year
