The ethics issue, I think he might dope some but not all...as long as the riders don't drop dead I don't think seeing him is a great issue.
Let the dope testers do their job, mine is not to question others....

flicker said:If it meant the difference between working as a lowely domestique killing myself for a star rider and being the star rider I think doping would be a terrible temptation. Look at these numbers, $ 40,000/$2,000,000.
Now the babe -aj factor . Amber Landis or /Kristian Armstrong-Sheryl Crow.
This is hypothetical and for comparison. I think Lance quit the dope after chemo or perhaps as late as after the 99 tour.
I would hate to see him busted but I think he is the best advocate for pro-cycling right now.
If he was busted I would acknowledge that his peers and competition were doped also thus a level playing field.
Like I said before when Greg was racing people mostly were doping then. Nothing new just more effective dope now.
