    I have never heard that about Andy. He was an incredible rider.

    On the odd occasion that I watch pro cycling, I am amazed that they are always together no one having a bad day. This is not the sport that I grew up with.

    I was stupid (naive) when I raced. I didn't think doping was that useful. It's clear I was wrong. I remember guys saying, 'without the **** that guy couldn't make it with the group 30 mins into this race'. I thought they were joking. I guess the joke was on me. Young, dumb and struggling with the language - blissfully ignorant.

    ""This is what cycling is about. If you are in a national championship or an amateur classic, or a pro single day race (as I was) you spend a large chunk of that race hurting. Even on a good day, you may only feel good enough to attack or follow serious move for 15-20% of the time of the race. The rest of the time you are suffering like ****. If doping even allowed you to have 33% of the time fresh enough to follow any attacks, then that would completely change the race for you.""

    That's very accurate..I think it was Andy Hampsten that said races are won in 12 minutes..A rider may or may not be ready for that a one 12 minutes, but the dopers might be ready for 2 or 3 of those 12 minutes or 15 minutes. Even a donkey could win with those odds.
