Default What about people involed with the testing?

You think more cyclists, coaches and national governing bodies will be investigated?
What about the people that allowed doping or even covered it up. USAC has positive tests that they kept quiet. I think if it was Australia people from USCF and USAC would be investigated.
Here is some info about US Cycling but no one seems to be doing anything about it.

You fail to understand that the IOC's system, by design, is anti-doping controversy with no authority higher than the sports federation itself. In the U.S. one guy owns the federation, Thom Wiesel. Who, just happens to have put together USPS and a long list of other doped teams whose "Champions Club" developed a decade of dopers.

What agency has the authority to look into these matters? Unless the federation breaks serious Federal laws in-country, there is none. This is IOC's design. Who would pay for the privilege of cleaning up the cesspool? Not the IOC, not the UCI.

A legitimate anti-doping system would upset both promoters and the IOC. Was there a good Olympics cycling show? That team GB TdF/Olympics combo was magical, right? The UCI were at minimum complicit in creating a 7-time winner of the TdF too. One might ask what role the UCI had in making the 2012 story come true.

Was the promoter who paid the UCI for the elite rider show happy with their event? The UCI's perspective is anti-doping controversy harms the customer. Nothing will be done.

The problem is so much bigger than just cycling. It's just that cycling has not only earned it, but has failed to manage to keep it all quiet.

The guts of the ongoing olympic sports deceipt story, and cycling, in one simple short post. Thanks DirtyWorks. Hopefully over time more people will wisen up, and care enough for political pressure and or sponsors to force sports administrations into a better place. Or maybe people simply won't care enough and much of sport will remain superficial entertainment for the masses with the occasional crises that will go away over time with business as usual.
