The way I see it, if I had to cheat to survive in any career (never mind a sport), I wouldn't be able to live with myself. We can talk about demonizing all we want, but at the end of the day, it's your own choice to participate. I don't believe for a minute of this "forced doping" crap. It's the cyclist's way to pointing fingers, "look, I didn't want to do it. He made me. I did it for him." He wasn't juiced up at gun point. He can quit anytime, there's no mob to go out and kill him if he talks, so I don't feel sorry if they get caught.ÅSBJÖRN BENKT said:more talk about moving on and learning from the past i suspect. from his article he does have a disagreement with many on the way dopers are demonised for making hard choices, so i don't think he would like the clinic's general attitude to armstrong. he also seems to believe that the sport has changed so there wasn't a need for the investigation in the first place - if that was your priority.
I personally have lived an honest life, in my career and when I race my bike, and I live very comfortably, so I have no sympathy for cheaters.
