Yeah, that's what I'm thinking, though I don't see how the collapse of the UCI would change anything either.this_is_edie said:Even if Armstrong goes down, I don't believe anything will change unless the UCI also collapses. I don't think Armstrong will name any big names, they'll scapegoat some lowly soigneur and/or mechanic to take the fall (well remunerated of course) and will keep their mouths shut. Bruyneel will move on to another team with all his contacts, UCI will continue their corrupt ways and in one year or two, when the media has moved on to the next juicy story, the doping will continue.
Amstrong showed the way, he showed that extreme doping, extreme control and enforcement of omerta along with a pr-driven charitable side works. Someone will follow the model, there's always someone willing to sell the soul.
No matter how much or how little testing there will be, it will always be possible to stay ahead of it, and reason to keep quiet about it (omerta).
I don't see how anything can change that.
