LOL at that.

Armstrong being humiliated by his doping colleagues.

He also indicated his support for an truth & reconciliation commission and an amnesty for past dopers.

Looks like Bettini has something to confess but doesn't have the guts for it.

So, the Cecchini wonder wants the Ferrari wonder to confess? It really is a fun world this 'sport'.

Little note: the Cecchini wonder wants Max Sciandri as his successor, Max Sciandri of the 1 - 2 - 3 Luigi top three at the 1996 Olympics road 'race'.

A big smile here.

You are not only wrong, but are engaging in a line of intellectually dishonest discourse that I find astounding.

Your premise is based on what science, exactly? What studies can you quote that makes your assertion true?

Doping absolutely allows you to train harder, and thus a rider can become faster than someone who is carrying the same training load who is not doping.

You know this, you're just trying to be obtuse.

You're either crazy, or attempting to defend an agenda. Which one is it?

The notion that "...an eventual confession by the American could be the chance to cancel everything that happened in the past and start all over again..." would almost certainly be helpful to

deflect

attention

from

other

competitors

who

rode

at

the

same

time.

Yep, I almost spit up my beer when I read that. Unfortunately I didn't purchase la Repubblica today, now I'm wishing I had.

Either you are being facetious, or there is a 3rd option: you misunderstood his post and over-reacted (and insulted the poster) accordingly.
