There is a small part of me that wants me to see him get off but I do think he should get a ban. After the LA decision this week having AC get off would make me feel ****.

A ban wouldn't be fair after LA decision.

Quick question:

If he's banned, would this ban take effect backdated (beginning from the positive test during TdF 2010, meaning annulment of his results from then on. So with a 1 year ban, he could race this season normally. Or would he be banned from now on and additionally get his results (beginning from TdF 2010) taken away from him?

The only ones who know the answer to that are the ones writing the decision.

Let's say he gets banned for one year, starting now, and his 2011 results would be taken too. Effectively, that would be a 2 year ban, no?
