Can't you get it into your thick skull that EVERY major team was doping to some extent in the 1990s. And that EVERY major team has been doping to some extent in the 2000s. There may be a few riders who have never broken the WADA code but it is probably a small number. That's the reality. That is why none of the riders have ever really objected to any one caught cheating. This is also happening in all American professional sports, in track and field athletics and ... well, it's a huge phenomenon world wide.

So don't start off on this "cheating" business and pointing an individuals. Even the few clean riders benefited from support riders who doped. For crying out loud, Greg Lemond rode for the dirtiest team of its day and even if he never took anything he shouldn't have (yeah, right!) he benefited from the performances of doped domestiques.

Everyone is compromised. End of story. And it is only people riding bicycles, for crying out loud!
