Freire has been vocal in his anti-doping stance, being very critical of his own compatriots on this issue multiple times, also immediately after the USADA report was released... so far the only Spaniard of importance to do so, I think.
It seems to me that he's called for a little less hypocrisy regarding Armstrong, but I could be wrong. Most of what these guys say gets lost in translation anyway. Yes, the "I never suspected Armstrong" comment is a bit lame, but keep in mind it's Freire we're talking about.
