Good post Benotti, I'll agree with everything you said here.Benotti69 said:Armstrong was banned because others said he was a doper. Same as in here.Fernandez said:Those cyclists were banned with proofs, thats how it works.Benotti69 said:No, it is true plenty of athletes have not failed tests and got banned.

Why would a team hire a rider who would not be prepared to do whatever is required to help the team win?
When so much is at stake for teams, why hire the guy who goes against the culture and might upset the apple cart?
There are plenty who post in here who have experience and know what is possible to do naturally on a bike.
Again as has been pointed out. The clinic is not an anti-doping agency. But posters make reasoned decisions based on what is known, seen, understood plus taking into considerations of those whose police the sport, those who run the teams in the sport, the doctors hired by the teams, the statements made by those in the sport. It is not too difficult for those that want to see the truth what has changed in the sport and what has not.
