1999-2005 try 1993 till who knows?!martinvickers said:Cycling is riddled. riddled with drugs, and frankly corruption. It needs completely cleaned out.
But please, don't kid yourself that Cycling is the worst sport in this regard.
Baseball is just as bad. As, frankly, is athletics.
Weightlifting is far worse.
American football makes cycling doping look amateur, and then throws on extreme concussive injuries on top. Read about Junior Seau, or the recent stuff from Jason Taylor, a legend of the game, and weep.
Bear in mind also that, despite the melodrama, cycling right now is not where it was in the 1995-2005 period. It's not clean yet, of course, but it's at least working on it.
Never before have so many doped riders been willing to spill. It makes cycling look terrible right now. But it's the necessary medicine. You can't treat the wound until you expose it. Better that than continually hiding it
