Yes, I would have thought Merckx had earned lifetime immunity.86TDFWinner said:Agreed. Indurain acts as if he's immune to it, and talks to folks like they're stupid if they bring it up. Same w/Merckx, how either can comment on wanting the sport to be clean, when both have admitted it, is just lost on me. Glad LeMond has been shown to be a clean rider(probably the last "clean" TDF winner). Greg deserves MUCH praise for not caving into the masses and staying clean.
Again, just my opinion.
But, he has acted like such an idiot, moreso than normal, with respect to Lance this past year he deserves to be stripped of at least one yellow just for that.
How can you be the greatest cyclist ever while protecting the greatest fraud ever?
It doesn't compute.
