Hopefully you mean more than that...like "in an egalitarian society there are rules, and although cheaters, liars and deviants will test the system that society outlines the rules will prevail. Once rules are broken the 'cheaters' will be punished to the extent of those rules."

A little different than...'Sometimes that means somebody cheating wins. So be it.'

That is my philosophy dear zweistein. Live and let live, forgive.

Sorry to take the Lance thread into a different level, me hippie.

Do you think Greg is able to forgive? Just guessing how he speaks of Landis nowadays I guess he is, are you?Your anger is clouding your judgement. You don t even see how society itself wanted heroes like Armstrong.

Sorry for the interuption in this thread, I have said all I wanted to say on the dopester Lanceboy. Yes he doped, and was/is not a nice man but 95% of the public loved him. How come? Simple mathematics.Armstrong/Ricco/Pantani: scapegoats.
Kim Kardashian's attention by the media and public outstrips LA's at his peak. That's not a societal indictment but you use the phrase like it's an entity controlled by someone. That's too simple.

As for any of these riders being "scapegoats"...they got caught; Ricco and Pantani when it was only the idiot riders being discovered. Tifosi loved Pantani but that doesn't declare all Italians as fans any more than most Americans revered Armstrong. He cultivated an image and courted the press effectively.
Not everyone believed it, fortunately.

King of Strava Segments "Austin Bike Path" and "Austin bike path" (Case sensitivity bug bigger than a hangar door) Dig into that backpack of courage for a new PR! He's probably cheating that too. I'm okay with that though as I don't give much energy to Strava.

Who found that in Strava's half-broken search?

No. He has been on Strava for months, with 7,460 followers. That's a lot by Strava standards.

What's new is that he just changed his Strava name from Juan Pelota to Lance Armstrong.

LOL!!!

For non-users of Strava, if you suspect a ride as being illegitimate (usually because someone used a motor vehicle instead of a bike), you can "flag" a ride to have Strava check it out.

Thereby temporarily removing it from the results... possibly permanently after review.

There are three basic categories (Driven in a car...), but a fourth is called for:

4. Rider is a known doper.

Actually, since I know someone who did this, a fifth is also called for:

5. Ridden in an airplane.

Both might apply to Lance's level of cheating.

Dave.
