I thought you were a martyr, not an apologist.flicker said:This I agree with. Without Eddie B. and Ed Burke, and without the "naturally talented" TdF winner LeMond Lance probably never would have existed.
To me Lance played on a level playing field in Europe.
The posters and haters on this site, I imagine come from the UK understandably where doping is unheard of. I understand the outrage by being beaten by Armstrong, simply not fair.
The investigation hopefully will stick, against the suppliers and provacatuers,
in the doping game.
I still do not understand the outrage against Armstrong. He and Johann carry a long tradition in European cycling.
I suppose as a friend of mine commented if Lance was doping unabated, using the most experimental, expensive and powerful dope exceeding any of his opponents doping exploits he could be called a cheat.
This is an opinion shared by many. Not me.
If not, well call him a mediocre classics rider who was enhanced into an uber
champion, patron du peloton etc.
I do not consider Lance any different than any other top tier pro rider nor European footballer.
Therefore I still consider the investigation a witch hunt.
