Do you think Lance Armstrong cheated?

Do you think Lance Armstrong took EPO during one or more of his 7 title runs at the Tour de France?

Re: Do you think Lance Armstrong cheated?

I'm most certain he did ... i also believe the man in charge did (are still doing) all they could to prevent his cheating seeing the light. It was the fairytale story; his cheating would hurt the sport dearly!

Re: Do you think Lance Armstrong cheated?

I find him so self-rightous, and really annoying.

I reckon he did use something, its just unnatural what he did.

Re: Do you think Lance Armstrong cheated?

It is pretty obvious that he did. But he gave heaps of publicity to the sport, especially in the U.S were cycling could receive huge amounts of sponsor and media interest. I don't really give a shit about cycling, but the whole sport is full of cheats.

No more than the other riders. So in the end it was a level playing field and he was still the best.

Re: Do you think Lance Armstrong cheated?

Not at all. I will admit, I did have some doubts, but when I read one of his books, and read about all the times he was tested, I changed my mind. Surly if he was, he would've given a positive sample by now, the man does a shit load of tests a year

Re: Do you think Lance Armstrong cheated?

I'm not sure I care.

I don't watch any cycling so I'd prefer to think of him as some great sportsman and leave it at that.

He also donates money to the labs his blood gets tested in.

You can only find something when you are looking for it. The WADA is always one step behind.

Do You seriously belive that You may ride a bike for such long with high speed without taking banned substances?

Im not negative, actually Im for legalising EPO and other shit. Its obvious that everyone is taking it.

Yeah, cause EPO isn't dangerous at all, especially not when you use a lot of it

Re: Do you think Lance Armstrong cheated?

Of course he is a drugs cheat.

Of even more significance, there's this little gap in Graf's resume the size of the hole in the ozone layer: It's called Monica Seles. Was Graf the best female player of all time? She wasn't even the best in the heart of her career.
