All of the the talk about Lemond his alleged doping, any rumour proof or whatever goes into this thread. If it again crops up in any other thread that is not concerned with his doping directly, i'm talking specifically the Lance thread, you will get an infraction or a short suspension by me.

I was thinking and talking about this thread for some time, but the talk died down for a litlle while, as it has flared up again, I was getting more annoyed with it

LeMond does not believe in miracles, hope or Unicorns. He does believe in Cancer.

LeMond is a French name.....think about it.

This also means that you guys who are not of the opinion that Lemond doped, need to remain calm and polite in this thread. No attacking persons on the simple fact that they believe Lemond doped. Attack the evidence or lack thereof of the posts, not the posters convictions. So also don't fill up the thread with jokes.

Barrus, does this mean he doped? :D
Sorry, I know - no jokes.

Anyway, thanks for the thread - great to keep so much of the junk in one, easily avoidable thread. Shouldn't a thread like this start with a list of debunks of the top ten "proofs"? - would probably make things easier as you could always point to that... Ho-hum, back to work!

Since it it only a matter of time before some Public Strategies intern does the popular "Fastest TT in history" talking point.

The final TT in 1989 was short (12 miles), downhill, with a tailwind. It is not the fastest Tour TT, Dave Z went faster on a course with a climb. Other riders came close on courses that were twice as long with multiple climbs

Look, I myself don't know to much about his alleged doping, so you guys need to do that for yourselves, if you do, I would update the opening post, provided that anything you propose, be it whether he did, or did not dope, is has some sort of reliable source, if possible multiple independent sources.

Names, dates, courses?
 
The main points invariably offered to support the hypothesis that Greg doped:
Iron shot
Testing was very poor then
Everyone doping back then
Fastest TT

And that's about it. :D

If anyone else has any evidence either circumstantial or otherwise, please offer it up.
Because after almost twenty years, to think this is the most anyone can come up with, speaks for itself.
Although a regular forum user, and I think it is Flicker, repeatedly claimed that a former pro who was on the same team as Greg, told him that Greg doped. I have also told this Forum user that his friend is in for a windfall from P.S. because he would be the only former team mate to have seen it.

A few people saw him smoke some weed at a party once, therefore he's a doper on the bike. That argument's been made here before.
 
Well done Barrus.
I've been dipping in and out of the clinic today and the rubbish from a small pack of jokers, using baseless Lemond jibs as a smokescreen for real issues surrounding Armstrong, has ruined all discourse.

Make 'em shape up, or ship 'em out I say.

Well he did win 3 Tours-- is that not enough to conclude he was (at least moderately) doped?

Prior to EPO, definitely not. After EPO, I would say fair enough to your comment. A doped a** never won the Derby was still true prior to EPO. This changed though with EPO.
