Just to point out, those 'technicalities' are actually rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.

Lance rarely raced in the USofA. You need to brush up on judicial boundaries and international laws and sporting authoritative bodies.

The old fella can thank his lucky stars the French never had a reported positive test. He'd have been in the slammer for a few nights at a minimum.

How does Lemond say that things are cleaner now especially after some performances at the tour this year? Not trying to implicat anyone but I think he is talking shhit!

Stop generalising dude. Who, where, when and why? Name them. Start a thread. Lance looked clean this Tour. So did the rest of the Shack. Contador looked clean. All the riders struggled in comparison to other years.

:eek::eek::eek:
I can't believe I am hearing this... People saying that cycling is very clean when I could pull out a thread from a few months ago which said all top riders are on the juice. If I point the finger at anybody I will get shot down in flames.

I just find that hard to believe. Your dreaming if you think such performances are clean. I can't believe that i am having to tell certain posters this but this thread needs to go the clinic.

Stuff it, maybe alberto looked like he struggled more because he had more "competition" in the mountains.


I am just waiting to be shot down in flames!

Dude, what is wrong with you? You are coming off like an idiot. You can't name a rider...so it is everyone eh? Except CE? I call BS on that line of thought. If CE had won he most certainly would be doped too eh? You are really starting to loose it.

I am not saying ALL are on the juice but I think it is an absurd to say such things that others are saying about people doping and it being a clean tour. Are you saying that because there were no positive tests?

Maybe you should read this thread and have a look at the poll results and which posters voted for what!
Do all top riders dope?

People who voted "yes"
Yes

When people read all of the personal attacks on this board, I am shocked that new posters would want to say anything at all. Why make a comment if you are going to suffer a personal attack. If you disagree with a person's point of view, disagree with what they have to say, but don't just attack a person for saying that.

Amen! Go back and read the last 20 posts by some of these "Senior Members," that joined a whole 8 months ago, and most are just attacks and name calling. Pretty easy to get 1,000 posts when you attack every new post repeatedly. Can any of you add any value to the forum, contribute any useful content, maybe educate someone that is a recent fan and wants to learn more?

ask Filipo Simoni, ask Christophe Bassons, ask Landis when LA and JB poured Landis's rest day blood bag down the sink in 2004 because he was joining Phonak for 2005, ask all the ex USPS riders that left and then tested positive, ask Paul Kimmage, ask former masseuse Emma O'Reilly whom he claimed was doing 'extras' for the team in a total character assasination because she told the truth to David Walsh.

LeMond has always been anti doping. When you have a 7 time TdF champion who only won the 7 TdFs because of his systematic doping well why talk about others. When LeMond asked Armstrong about it, Armstrong accused LeMond of doping and that is where this started and since then Armstrong has tried to pin dirt on LeMond to distract from his own connections to doping, Ferrari, Corticoid positive, EPO use tested positive 6 retroacitve tests for 99 TdF etc........

Give it up Fanboy.

i dont see LeMond as destroyed in fact his star is on the rise or maybe you cant read the articles that have been appearing lately about LA and after Novitsky is finished the only ones to be destroyed with be Armstrong and his associates and supporters including fanboys like yourself.

Simoni still races for a professional team. Emma O'Reilly is a successful masseuse, Paul Kimmage is an award winning journalist, Christophe bassons works in sports education teaching children against taking the path that LA took and Floyd landis has made peace with himself and in case you don't know what that means, go search Stephen Swart to understand.

LA reacts to the truth seekers those who want to know how it is possible that someone who before cancer cant time-trial to save their life and after cancer is the best in the world, well EPO is the answer. The truth seekers will damage his myth/legend and ego, why would he not attack them, a standard reaction from cheats, fraudster's and liars. the other reactions is to ignore it if its not true.

Several weeks after his testimony against Lance, Greg LeMond and his wife Kathy gave an extensive interview to the Sunday Times. He provided additional details on the circumstances of his 2001 apology to Armstrong, stating that Trek, the longtime manufacturer and distributor of LeMond Racing Cycles, had threatened to end the relationship at the behest of Armstrong. He described the two years that followed the forced apology as the worst in his life, marked by self-destructive behavior that ultimately led him to disclose his sexual abuse to his wife and seek help.

Greg got pwned:cool:
