Did Pantani have the 52% hematocrit?
Did he need to showboat to Madonna di Campiglio with 4 minutes in hand on GC?
Did the "mafia" (who by the way?) stop him from going to Fuentes?
The argument that it was damning for UCI to pull a rider from the race with a 52% hematocrit is idiotic in the extreme.

And yes, life is unfair.
Edit: not greek, shakespearian
Edit 2: and the only perverse thing is your implication that Pantani should have been left alone to continue doping because he could not get over suffering the consequences of being uncovered as a cheat.
You are one disgusting individual.

"People are following us, they're not stupid. I've never given up and there will be some new revelations. I haven't got anything against Armstrong, they were all prey to the system, however, Marco had always said, he'd left a maglia rosa with this written on it: "what really hurts is Armstrong." I'd like to encounter him. He must confess. He needs to name names."

As with the fellow Armstrong, its definitely time to deliver real information.

A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.
