WRT Simpson & Goddet, I think drug testing was being pushed already and Simpson's death forced the Tour to be seen to do something.
OK Fine !
Gonna have to start a thread about Simpson because so many lies have been told surrounded his death and I feel strongly about it.

(I figure we're going a bit too far with the Clinic talk here. Maybe a split would be a good idea?)
It ain't that easy. Merckx was stripped off a win in Lombardy because he treated a bronchitis with syrup. Unethical?
And I'm against the splitting of the thread. We can't discuss the historical "greatness" of a "champion" and overlook the doping matter.
