Now that the word is out that POS LA has always been a dope fiend I wonder how fast I could have run if I had doped. Don't you? Doping helps you recover, so you can push harder during your training and thus achieve the unachievable during your races. Since I have nothing to gain by cheating I would never have considered doping. But I wonder what the difference would be dope v. no dope. Since POS LA has probably found a new drug I don’t think we can look at his future times as a test. Has anyone ever quantified the increase in performance?
Why is everyone a LA hater? If you did not have your head in the sand you knew that most pro's in every sport were doing them! I was in a gym at a major university (with the team) and they were handing them out like candy! It's funny to hear past pro's talk about it like that did not do them, that's BS!
If they strip TdF titles from Armstrong, they will also have to strip them from the next 300 riders down the finish list as they were all doping. No doping? No peloton. They will be going back and awarding those TdF yellow jersies to some obscure guy on his Huffy.
What a shame, it used to be hard work that paid off. At least some of Armstrong's millions will be taken away in lawsuits, but he's a very weathly man because he's a cheat.
Doesn't say much for him or the people who think his way of winning is acceptable.
Enjoy life, this ain't a rehearsal...
